Sushiswap’s online presence is notoriously scattered, including domains like “sushiswap.fi” and “sushiswapclassic.org.” In the announcement, Future Fund noted that the simplicity is an improvement, saying, “A strong domain will greatly increase internet traffic and exposure to the sushi brand.”
While the terms of the purchase were not revealed, the domain is a hot property that has previously been listed for between $600,000 and $1.5 million, according to various domain sales sites.
When ask about the purchase, Sushiswap CTO Joseph Delong’s initial reactions was simple:
“Pretty based imo.”
According to Delong and core contributor 0xMaki, the timing of the buy couldn’t have been better.
