New York, NY (PRWEB) September 24, 2008
This week at Monikers T.R.A.F.F.I.C. convention in N.Y.C. domainers learn all about the latest way to monetize websites; they also have a live domain name auction. One of the most anticipated auctions is for the e-commerce term "eDOLLARS", which is available on Thursday 25th at 3p.m. est. at the live auction.
"eDOLLARS" comes with over 220 related domains and two trademarks for "eDOLLARS" and "eDOLLARS.com". This portfolio may go for over a million dollars.
For those interested in watching the auction live, just go to the Moniker site and download the free software http://marketplacepro.moniker.com/auction/index.html .
What will be even more interesting is who the buyers are. Will the economic chaos of the preceding weeks drive down the price, or are there still some companies and institutions on the hunt for a branding opportunity? Will the downturn in the U.S. economy have any effect on this auction or any others?
The general consensus of many domainers is that the auction will actually do better. There will be more of a world-wide audience hoping to get better deals on U.S. goods, because of the weakness of the dollar, and other economic issues.
Domains have proven to be a very durable commodity. It will be interesting to see how some of these domains do, and what that says about the economy.
