Still, the Domain King : Rick Schwartz’s latest #domain registrations

The Domain King, Rick Schwartz.

Rick Schwartz disabled his Twitter account, stating he has better things to do with his time.

The Domain King’s disappearance from social media was seen as a reaction to Twitter’s prolonged inaction in restoring Mike Berkens’s stolen account.

To be honest, there is only so much that can be retained on Twitter, and Rick’s musings and publicly shared experience from his 20+ years as a domain investor, were often getting lost in an ocean of white noise.

Rick Schwartz retired three years ago, but returned to share his thoughts on a medium that unlike his own blog and web site, aren’t his, and that’s the core issue.

The world does not seem to understand domain investors in general.

A few months ago, Rick Schwartz’s Wikipedia entry was changed to “domain speculator,” his detailed achievements were removed, and eventually, on Christmas Eve, his page was deleted by a Wikipedia moderator.

Rick Schwartz doesn’t need to prove himself to anyone, and his status as the de facto supreme commander of the domain industry is undisputed.

He continues to invest in domain names and manages his own time, free from the feverish distractions of Twitter.

Here are some of the domains that Rick Schwartz registered recently, clearly influenced by Donald Trump’s announcements:

  1. Strange domains.. How willt his make him money then?

  2. Eric Lyon says:

    Looks more like a “Statement” registration spree than one focusing on a return on investment. As an influencer, such bulk registrations make a clear point to all who follow.

  3. Logan says:

    I like my ‘corrupt media’ domain names AntiMedia.com and MediaFail.com better as investments/speculations.

    I was sorry to see Rick leave Twitter. I get why he did, but I thought he poured a lot into his posts, and for the benefit of others. It’s rare and not to be taken for granted, when a successful person does that. I wish Twitter hadn’t killed it. And Wikipedia editors ought to be ashamed of themselves. They are a less and less dependable source for getting the straight scoop… it’s only what they want you to see. #Downhill

    Rick is still addicted to twitter and lurks silently among tweets on the platform. Not making a statement by registering these domains. He just did what all domainers do, hand register domains related to top news, new tech etc with the end state of “lotto domain” making a sale. Rick was “highly likely” to hit home run block buster record flip for these hand reg domains. He still may be able to, however his chances greatly reduced.

    President Trump Tweeted; “I will be announcing THE MOST DISHONEST & CORRUPT MEDIA AWARDS OF THE YEAR on Monday at 5:00 o’clock. Subjects will cover Dishonesty & Bad Reporting in various categories from the Fake News Media. Stay tuned! 7:05 PM – Jan 2, 2018”

    Unfortunately, President Trump changed the awards show name to: “Fake News Awards” on 17 January.
