Last week Florida-based group Casino Holdings Inc. announced that they've completed a purchase for the web domain Bitcoin.Casino for a record $28,000.
That number is relatively small for an online betting domain, but it is a record for the .Casino domain extension itself. Bitcoin casinos have found a foothold throughout the world, as players enjoy the rapid pace of transactions as well as the lack of fees, among other features found in the cryptocurrency. Bitcoin recently set an all-time high for value, and sits at $1,186 as of press time. Analysts have put a prospective value of $2,000 per coin.
Currently the all-time record for an online casino domain is Casino.com, which sold in 2003 for a staggering $5.5 million, while the domain Gambling.com sold for $2.5 million in 2011.
