    It appears that a company called Moncao which was using the domain Mona.co recently bought Crypto.com. It is unclear how much money the domain name was purchased for. However Matt Blaze, a computer science professor, originally claimed he would never sell the domain. He was strongly vocal that cryptocurrency and ICOs are scams and didn't want to see the domain used for that purpose.

    Even after the sale his personal site still reads;

    http://www.mattblaze.org/

    I guess he got an offer he couldn't refuse for Crypto.com. It's reported that he was offered $10 million and turned that down.

    So... how much do you think Blaze sold Crypto.com for? Was it an equity, cash, and lease deal? What do you think convinced him to sell?

    Same Monaco that have an alt coin and looking to roll out their prepaid payment card?

    I expect the offer was heavily paid in crypto currency, perhaps in the $30mil equiv range.

    $30 million in crypto? I doubt it he might have gotten that in dollars and equity in the company.
