Chinese domain sales report.

Chinese domain sales report.

The Chinese government works like this: China’s officials wake up every morning, determined to find something to censor, any online resource that seems to pose a cultural or political threat to them.

And now, Tumblr is being blocked in China, despite belonging to Yahoo, that owns a large stake in Alibaba. The latter, is being investigated by the SEC currently.

Today’s list starts off with some nice sales by domain investor Elequa, who sold 4 more chips to the Chinese:

The rest of the domain list spans two days worth of transactions:

Let’s hope for some more sales this week.
