The Bitcoin industry is moving into the mainstream market more and more on a daily basis, which means that many companies are making big investments to ensure themselves a spot amongst the everyday users.
Josh Garza from GAWMiners has just acquired the BTC.Com domain for a massive $1 million, ensuring that anyone who would ever Google the abbreviation will come by their side. The domain was available on the market for a few weeks time, where companies and private persons had the opportunity to place a bid on the domain through a hosted auction at Domain Guardians.
With the purchase comes not only yet another positive news story about the Bitcoin out to the general public, but also shows the world that the companies in the industry are willing to invest a lot of money into the industry, giving trust and provide curiosity for those who are not that familiar with the Bitcoin.
Jen Sale, Co-founder of Domain Guardians, was asked about the sale of BTC.com and what the new owner of the domain could expect from it.
"Whether you're a bitcoin startup or existing company wishing to solidify your authority and optimize your marketing, there is no better opportunity than acquiring BTC.com. In the right hands, this domain has the power to change the bitcoin landscape and establish a market leader."
Also Roger Ver had something to say about the sale: "For bitcoin related companies, BTC.com is the best domain name currently available for sale that I am aware of. Any business using BTC.com would almost certainly catch a lot of extra attention because of this premier domain name."
