At the end of 2020, a UDRP was filed against SmartWallet.com at the National Arbitration Forum. In response to the UDRP filing, Andy Booth, who acquired the domain name for $25,239.50, filed a federal lawsuit. It turns out that Andy’s company won the UDRP and the lawsuit ended up being terminated.
This morning, Andy announced that he sold SmartWallet.com for $175,000:
Just sold the domain https://t.co/sGdZzu1mOf for $175k – was bought via BIN and no previous interactions at all with buyer. Domains are back!

In looking at the SmartWallet.com landing page, it appears the domain name was sold via Dan.com. The domain name is now registered at a Dan.com-connected registrar, so I presume the purchase was already funded and the domain name transferred. Andy mentioned that the buyer used the BIN option to purchase the domain name.
Because of GDPR – and also likely because the domain name was just sold – the buyer of SmartWallet.com is not yet known. It will be interesting to see if the buyer is the same company (LE Holdings LLC) that filed the UDRP.
