Coin Desk/ ZapChain Interview with Jered Kenna
Jered Kenna is someone who got into Bitcoin early and not only did he get into Bitcoin, but his company according to the interview says his company Trade Hill owned the mother of all domain names, Bitcoin.com. The confusing part in the video he uses the words we owned Bitcoin.com, but had an agreement with the owner that if the exchange closed down he would get the domain back. So it may be fair to say they were leasing the domain but he used the word owned.
He started a rival exchange Trade Hill that was the only other exchange out there to take on Mt.Gox. The exchange failed two separate times due to money transmission issues . The interview is worth listening too if you are interested in Bitcoin.
The domain name is mentioned at the 5 minute mark.
