On Monday, Bitcoin.com was placed on sale for a minimum offer of £72,301,352 (i.e., US$100,462,728) on the web hosting and domain registrar company GoDaddy. A lot of Twitter users in the crypto community commented on that.

Ver immediately reached out to GoDaddy asking: “Why are you listing my domain name for sale? It isn’t for sale. […] Please remove this fake news that is damaging my real brand,” as he wrote in a message reported by The Block, adding that it was 100 percent fake news.
