The domain name Bitcoin.dev is no longer free for developers, according to recent information from the crypto-planet that claim the lock (the purchase of the domain) for $ 12,500. This news came as Google prepares to release this new TLD (top-level domain).
Bitcoin.dev locked for $ 12,500
The domain.de.dev booking system works like an auction, where developers snap up names that have resale value.
These “leading” areas such as Bitcoin.dev allow users to prioritize marketing.
A profiled user “salsa-system” reported the registration of the domains Bitcoin.dev and Blockchain.dev by an unknown developer, thus reserving the most famous domain of the currency for about $ 12,500 (management fee required to register domain names).
Apparently, other registers such as Ethereum.dev are also not available, which leaves a race with famous names related to cryptocurrencies.
The new TLD released by Google
On Tuesday, the owners of tld .dev (Google) also introduced the new Top Level Domain in a blog. They declare:
“We hope that .dev will be a new home for you to build your communities, learn the latest technology and present your projects, all with a perfect domain name.”
In this perspective, Google is trying to reconnect with the community of developers, appalled by the monopolization of the latter of the extension .dev in 2015.
