Bitcoin.com, one of the most recognizable domain names in the world of crypto, was listed for sale by American Internet domain registrar and web hosting company GoDaddy for $100 million yesterday.

“This domain is currently registered but has been listed for sale by its owner. Any offer at or above the amount shown may be accepted, rejected, or countered by the owner. Offers less than the amount shown will not be submitted. The process may last 5-10 days,” said the description on GoDaddy.

However, the page was quickly updated and now just states that “bitcoin.com is taken.”

Since 2014, Bitcoin.com belongs to well-known early crypto investor Roger Ver. Over the past few years, the website operated mainly as a crypto and blockchain news outlet. In 2016, Bitcoin.com launched a mining service, and in 2017—its own crypto wallet. In September 2019, the project subsequently launched a cryptocurrency exchange.

In the past, Bitcoin.com also regularly came under fire for promoting Bitcoin Cash—which Ver is a big proponent of—as the “true” Bitcoin.
