MicroStrategy is a Tysons Corner-based business intelligence and data analytics software maker. It is cleaning out its domain name storage locker. It has sold the domain “Voice.com” for $30 million, the fifth-highest price ever paid for a domain name.
The sale was facilitated by GoDaddy. It is being used by Block.one to launch its new blockchain-based social media platform called Voice.
MicroStrategy holds “evocative and powerful” domain names. It says it is open to selling them, but not cheap.
MicroStrategy’s current list of domain names it is willing to part with include:
“Ultra-premium domain names like these can help a company achieve brand recognition. It also ignites a business, and massively accelerate value creation,” MicroStrategy said in a statement.
MicroStrategy did not say why it has chosen now to sell the domain names. However, the move may help beef up its bank account.
