5G.ORG closed at $6,150 on GoDaddy yesterday. The domain was previously sold for $7,500 in 2013.
The domain name was under privacy at GoDaddy and parked at Sedo up until expiration.

In 2013 5G was a future standard, today all the buzz is about 5G.
5G – Wikipedia
5G is the fifth generation wireless technology for digital cellular networks that began wide deployment in 2019. As with previous standards, the covered areas are divided into regions called “cells”, serviced by individual antennas.
GoDaddy really made a killing on that one.
They are the best domainers.

What a time to let it expire….just when 5g is kicking off.
Edwin Kibuti says
Interesting.. For re-organization platform 5G is official expect launch begin service as hope well assure.
who the buyer?
who the seller?
who dropped the ball?
I noticed similar unusual resale with retweet.com on Namebio. Big loss.
I remember when this sold a few years ago I think it was on Sedo. I follow 5G names particularly because I own a short one like that which I hope might sell sometime.
When I spotted the sale reported I checked the whois and as far as I could tell it appeared to be a division of Intel before it switched to privacy although its sure possible this data was just some artefact of the sale/registrar/privacy information.
In any case, yeah someone got a sweet deal there.
