A mining corporation has purchased the rights to use the domain name nickel.com for a price that is around $250,000.
According to a regulatory document that was submitted by its parent company, Silver Elephant Mining, Flying Nickel Mining, which is traded on the Toronto stock exchange, bought the name at some time in the first half of the year for the price of CAD 313,977.
According to the petition, “during the six months that concluded on June 30, 2022 Flying Nickel bought a domain name for the amount of $313,977 for nickel.com.”
At the time of the sale, this item most likely had a price tag of $250,000, which, based on the current exchange rate, would be equivalent to around $243,000 today.
Flying Nickel mines nickel. Silver Elephant mines silver. This year, earlier in the year, the former was separated from the latter and now has its own stock market listing.
During the same time period, Nevada Vanadium, another Silver Elephant spin-off company, paid $23,461 Canadian Dollars to acquire vanadium.com. Vanadium is still another sort of metal, but one whose name is far less well-known than that of nickel.
Flying Nickel continues to use flynickel.com as its principal domain, however the content seen on nickel.com is a mirror of the content found on the original site.
