Contrib.com looks pretty interesting

September 3rd, 2017 Comments off

I recently signed up for Contrib.com which is self described as a contribution marketplace. The concept seems interesting, there are many different ways to contribute and figure out what you want to earn. It also looks like they are doing an ICO to establish their model.

July 23rd, 2017 Comments off

Obviously the biggest story in domaining this week was NameJet. There was some shady behavior uncovered, there were some that jumped to conclusions that may have proven to be premature or wrong. I tend to agree with Shane Cultra when he said the industry needs NameJet. The industry needs well run, properly monitored auction sites. […]
