I received an email today from a reader that was about domain investing.
Big fan of your blog, but one thing has always stuck in my craw…buying domain names is not investing, rather it is gambling. Why do people like Schwartz and Silver and several others call it investing?
This is something that has been brought up from time to time over the years. I thought it would be interesting to see where everyone stands on the topic of domains as an investment.
To take the straight definition of investing we have:
|synonyms:||put money into, provide capital for, fund, back, finance, subsidize, bankroll, underwrite; More|
I have always thought of domain names as a hybrid of investing and gambling.
