If the recent surge in sales is an indication, the ENS domain name craze didn’t fizzle out just yet. Non-roman character names also saw some interest with some selling for 100 ETH on Monday. The secondary sales of ENS domain names on OpenSea also saw a huge spike that surged over 300% in the past week and the ENS is the top-ranked collection on Opensea which saw over 6900 ETH in volume traded.
This is not the first time that ENS sales surged overnight. Back in April, three and four-digit ENS domain names started trending when a Twitter user realized that these domains had a fixed supply and made the holders members of the 10K Club as a result, the ENS saw about $3 million in revenue in less than a week.
As recently reported, Twitter got on fire as Ethereum name services have just airdropped its DAO token, a new governance token on the existing name registrants. Most users were excited as some name holders raked in huge gains from its fast appreciating value. The director of operations at ENS Brantley.ETH announced and explained the recent airdrop and in the name of decentralization explained that the team will pass ENS governance over to the company via their new governance token and since then, a lot of community members could start applying to become ENS delegates.
People didn’t need to apply to receive the airdrop but the governance tokens were airdropped to those that purchased at least one ENS domain. Brantley also encouraged the holders which had no intention of voting on their own to offer their tokens to the delegates. Over Twitter, he confirmed later that over 137K accounts were eligible for the airdrop with no investors having to make the cut.
