As there has been some discussion on whether SushiSwap would work as a name for a larger ecosystem that includes lending / margin trading / limit orders and more, Boring and I looked into various domainname alternatives to see if there was something fitting.
After a lot of searching for names and discussing possibilities, we more or less concluded that sushi.org would be the penultimate domain, allowing us to continue to use sushiswap.fi for the exchange, while also, like Uniswap does with uniswap.org (separate from uniswap.exchange), provide a home for our community and wider ecosystem.
Long story short, I decided to reach out via an anonymous mail form, to see if the current owner(s) of sushi.org would be willing to sell it. I got back a very friendly and positive reply from the owner, who coincidentally happens to be one of the most prominent open source advocates & pioneers Brian Behlendorf.
Brian set the price at what I deemed a very generous price of 142 ETH…
Which brings us to the discussion and decision to be made, on whether or not we should move to acquire sushi.org.
Acquire sushi.org from its current owner for 142 ETH, and use it as home for the SushiSwap community and the future DAO.
- Yes, wow, absolutely, let’s buy it!
- No, meh, why, maybe
