Cryptocurrency wallet, Ledger Wallet has acquired the premium domain name Ledger.com
The domain name was owned by Gatehouse Media, LLC since 2008 and has been registered since September 19, 1994. Gatehouse used the domain name for The Patriot Ledger, which uses PatriotLedger.com and had been redirecting Ledger.com.
Ledger.com is currently doing a redirect to LedgerWallet.com, but I expect that to change over time to the new premium owned domain name that matches the companies branding simply as Ledger.
There is a continued push by companies around the world to secure their brand and own the best domain name for the company. Although this comes with cost, its the right move and is highlighted here often on DotWeekly.
Ledger SAS is a French company and also owns the Ledger.fr domain name, as well as LedgerWallet.com. The company launched in 2014 and has about $85 million in funding according to CrunchBase. I was not able to find a sales price but I’d expect it to be in the six figure range.
