The Initial Coin Offering (“ICO”) project presented by the company DomRaider is an
unregulated fundraising operation. It poses several risks to buyers, in particular, that
of losing all amounts traded for tokens issued by DomRaider.

also that the ICO excludes certain groups of people such as consumers and “U.S.
Person” (within the meaning of “Regulation S” of the Securities Act 1933 in U.S. law),
Canadian and Singapore citizen”.

The secondary market for domain names
Presently, there are close to
330 million active domain names
They are divided into approximately
2,500 domain name extensions
or TLDs (Top-Level
Domains). ICANN (The Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers), the non- ...

The worldwide market has been driven by new gTLDs (Generic Top-Level Domains:
which correspond to extensions such as .com, .net, etc…) wich grew by 6.8% in 2017.

The domain name industry is today known for the spectacular transactions which are
regularly operated on the secondary market, with some of the more notable examples below:
Business.com: US$ 345m
Hotels.com: US$ 11m
LasVegas.com: US$ 90m
Fund.com: US$ 9,9m
CarInsurance.com: US$ 49,7m
Porno.com: US$ 8,8m
Insurance.com: US$ 35,6m
FB.com: US$ 8,5m
VacationRentals.com: US$ 35m • ...
If the .com domain extension continues to be the reference and generates the largest
transactions, in the past few years we have seen increasing interest in country code (.fr,
.eu, .london…) or theme based (.loan, .men, .tech…) domain extensions. This attraction
has been boosted by liberalization of domain name extensions which has given access
to domain extensions which were previously reserved for residents of the countries in
Taking advantage of the very low prices of the less well-known domain name extensions,
the number of transactions has exploded. Over the past 5 years, there has been no fewer
than 570,000 transactions, with more than 150,000 in 2016 alone.
Today, domain names have taken on the status of true digital assets: thus, more than 120
transactions worth more than US$ 100,000 were made in 2016. This has led to the arrival
of new, important investors. In particular, the Asian d...
The first stage is the Redemption Grace Period (RGP). During this period, the
domain name is deactivated, but its registrant still retains the possibility
to reactivate it by paying the reactivation fees. This period, which varies
depending on the registry, lasts approximately 1 to 3 months.
The second stage only lasts for a few days and corresponds to the period
in which the domain name is dropped. The domain name is finally deleted
and can be reserved by any one or any entity, similarly to a new domain
On average, 1% of the 330 million domain names activated in the world are dropped
in this manner, in other words, the equivalent of 100,000 drops per day.
Even though 99% of them are of little interest, the remaining 1% are real treasures.

• Historical SEO (Search Engine Optimization):

pointing to their websites (backlinks) rediscover
their ‘spark’ when they are restored. Natural

as they improve their positions in search engines or
are useful for marketing links.
a lot of domain names immediately
generate a lot of traffic (sometimes several tens of
thousands of hits per day) when they are restored.
Visitors can come from bookmarks, links or even
social content. They are popular with marketing
agencies who associate them, for example, with
advertising or by affiliation.
• Digital identity:
We have a three-pronged drop catching process:
we identify in each registry any do-
main name currently in the RGP
phase. Then, for each one of them,
we collect a series of third-party in-
dicators (Google, Ahrefs, Majestic,
Webarchive, Moz, Alexa…) which we
then aggregate in the form of meta
scores to reflect the potential value
of each domain name.
the domain names which have been
qualified are then indexed on our
site. Our customers can thus freely
consult them, carry out searches and
sort them. Once they have made their
choice, they can preorder the domain
names which interest them.
we monitor the preordered domain
names and attempt to catch them
as soon as they arrive in their drop
period. Once the domain name is
secured, we immediately deliver it to

the main difficulty
successfully catch the preordered domain names.
The rule of thumb is
first come, first served.
In other words, only the very first reservation
request for a domain name just after it has been dropped shall be the winning tender.
The difficulty is increased because it is extremely difficult to ascertain the exact moment when
a domain name is going to be dropped. The registries randomly stagger drops in timeslots
which can last from several minutes to several days.
The level of competition is such that a
domain name is general caught in a few
hundredths of a second.
At that type of speed, manual attempts to
reserve them are doomed to failure.
In today’s climate, in order to be competitive
and to have a chance you must obtain
accreditations from the domain name
registrars in order to have a direct connection
with the registration servers. We then exploit
these connections with bots which...
