EuroDNS announces Strategic partnership with Fusu, the Domain Stock Exchange

Following a year of unprecedented growth in Domain Names Registration, EuroDNS announces today a strategic partnership with the first “Domain Stock Exchange”, Fusu Inc.

At a time when Domain Name secondary market is getting stronger than ever, this collaboration strengthens EuroDNS’ position in the Domainer world while opening a new realm of possibilities for domain values.

Xavier Buck, EuroDNS CEO, explains “by bridging the gap between the traditional finance world and the innovative domainers investors, Fusu grants investors an unprecedented access to valuable properties while fueling a buoyant market. Our company is proud to participate in a great adventure that could become essential to domainers and Internet users worldwide”.

Created with long time experts in the market, Fusu uses the concept of the traditional stock exchange – where the value of a property is split between shareholders to finance growth and share profits – and adapts it to high-value domains. Under Fusu’s elaborated scheme, the holder of a premium domain name can decide to monetize a fraction of its value by listing it on the new Domain Stock Exchange, generating instant cashflow without having to relinquish any right on the domain itself. In turn, “stock holders” get a fraction of any revenue generated by the Domain Name but minimize the risks.

EuroDNS brings in its knowledge of the domain industry and will evangelize Domainers in key industry events: “The concept is quite simple, yet such a solution was really needed by the domain name market” comments Buck “We trust Fusu will help propagate the concept of premium domain names to many without diluting the value of the market” .

Operating in Private Beta since November, Fusu goes live today, listing a limited number of Domain Names in the beginning to “to guarantee a safe and trustworthy Exchange during the Beta period” comments Dr. Tomas Stremy, General Counsel at Fusu. “Given its ties to the Domainers Market, the participation of EuroDNS in the project is a strong signal for FUSU, adding further stability and security” adds Tobias Ratschiller, Fusu Founder and Managing Director.
