Germans love their coffee, even if it’s mostly a strange filtered concoction that’s popular in northern Europe and north America. So the announcement of kaffee.de selling for €200,000 ($238,000) through Sedo to become the largest reported ccTLD domain name sale for 2017 is unsurprising. The sale more than doubles that of fetch.com.au, the previous biggest sale, which sold for $100,320, in April, reported Domain Name Journal.
For the week ending 10 September (yes, we’ve got a little behind reporting on top reported sales), coming in second and third behind kaffee.de was pisces.com and chop.com which sold for $80,000 and $70,000 respectively through BQDN.
BQDN took out 3 of the top 20 reported sales for the week, but Sedo easily topped it with BQDN. On the TLD side of things, there were 12 .com sales including <☯.com> which sold for $11,201. There were 4 .org sales, 2 for .de and one each for .media and .it.
