We’re holding FUTURE
PRESIDENTS’ urls for
You can buy shares and get paid.
All shares sold out
Someone is going to run for president
They’re going to need a website
AND YOU CAN GET PAID
you can buy shares of their urls and Get paid when we flip them
Here's how it works
We bought likely 2024 presidential campaign urls
WE broke each url up into 100 shares that we are now selling
BUY SHARES OF A URL AND WHEN WE RESELL IT, YOU'LL GET A CUT OF THE PROFITS
How Does This Work?
"In The Year 2024" crowdsources domain squatting. We bought a website url that we think someone else will want in the future. You get to buy a little piece of it now, and if we successfully flip it for a profit, you get a corresponding chunk of the payout.
How Will I Get Paid?
When a domain sells, we’ll contact everyone who bought a share of it to arrange payment. All payouts will be through PayPal.
Why Would Someone Pay For A URL?
For a public figure or a political campaign, owning the most obvious website is important; it’s what people find when they go looking for you. Alternatively, an opponent's URL can be useful for a smear campaign.
We know, for example, that Michael Bloomberg had to purchase mikebloomberg2020.com from its previous owner when he launched his 2020 presidential campaign. He paid an undisclosed amount - and the secrecy alone should tell you something about how much money changed hands.
What is domain squatting?
Domain squatting refers generally to the practice of purchasing desirable or convenient URLs that you will not yourself use, and attempting to resell them.
Politicians come and go, the vast majority running purely in their own self interest or - as the case may be - the self-interest of the massive corporate donors who own them heart and soul. Yang, Kanye, even Trump, have shown that running for office is now a standard piece of brand-building.
Universally, however, candidates wear the idea that they are acting “for the people” loudly upon their sleeves. In some small way we can force that to be true: let us collectively hold hostage those assets a campaign needs, and force a prospective candidate to pay ransom back to the crowd before commencing their voyage of public aggrandizement.
As they say in the real estate business: location, location, location! And when it comes to urls, mostly available for paltry sums and entirely unique, well: it’s free real estate.
Pre-buying political domains is like laying a predictive minefield: a sale can potentially detect actions in advance of announcements.
Domain squatting is a plague: conniving scamsters seize premium land and prevent growth. If you don’t have a good idea for cookies.me, don’t stop someone else from taking it! Of course our defense is that we DID have a good idea, and this is it.
The savvy consider betting markets to be more reliable predictors than the polls. Because the political consultant class watches the betting markets, betting affects the race just as polls influence the electorate - a political observer effect. Let’s kick that up a notch: by betting on an asset a candidate will be forced to buy back, these bets will interface with campaigns directly.
If the lion’s share of politics is performance and gamesmanship, let’s get in the game.
