It comes as no surprise that many recent UDRP cases involve domain names that incorporate popular tokens and coins, or entire corporate names.

  • Bittrex, Inc. (presumably) – Pending UDRP for and – link.
  • PayPal, Inc. – The predominant digital money exchange took home – link to decision.

In a nutshell: keep away from incorporating brands and products of others in your cryptodomain registrations, regardless of how confident you are about their generic usage.
