Smartel.com EUR 5,800 – this domain name forwards to “smart hotel” Smartel. The whois is in the name of a software company, but I assume it’s managing the site for the hotel.

DangerousGolf.com USD 3,369 and DangerousDriving.com USD 1,177 – Three Field Entertainment is a new gaming company. It describes its first game as “an innovative new twist on a sports game that’s fast, funny and heavy on social multiplayer.” I’m going to guess it’s a golf or driving game. 🙂
GodGame.com USD 1,000 – GoodGame Studios, makers of the Empire game, bought another domain in the aftermarket. It’s a typo of its GoodGame.com domain.
FactorWise.com USD 10,000 – Investment firm Gerstein Fisher has trademarked “Multi-Factor” to describe its investment approach. Now it has a domain name to go with it.

On July 22, 2015, a look at 16 domain names sold on Sedo last week that were purchased by end users.
Sedo handled about a million dollars worth of domain name transactions last week with 499 domains. Many of the biggest sales — such as Frank Schilling’s USD 66,000 sale of newy.com — are still in the transfer process. At that price, it’s surely an end user purchase.
