I noticed a prominent voice in the twitter ENS community is trying to give Lyft the company Lyft.eth
in his posts he says that he is basically being ignored and the company wont accept the domain. This has happened to me with EVERY single domain I have attempted to give away.I had at one time very popular alcohol brands as well as other large brands that I eventually donated to validator.eth in the hopes that he would be able to facilitate something someday. I even had domains that were usable by crypto companies in the crypto space and they still turned it down. I wanted to make this post to be a gentle reminder to everyone that adoption is not guaranteed here. That is why it is such a travesty to see chipotle turned down as well as gamestop. Many companies are turned off by tone and entitlement that is prevalent in the ENS market place. I think there will be big buys ONE day. But if as a community we don’t all do our best to onboard companies and build use cases like social networks and such things then that day will be far away imo. I just wanted to make this post and encourage people who are hoarding names that only have 1 buyer to try and give it to the person you think is going to pay you big money for it. I think you might find that they don’t even want it. So I make this post hopefully as a gentle wake up call into reality for some people. I am sure there will be big sales eventually but what have we as a community done to bring value to these assets?
Edit- looks like I have to eat my words because not only did Lyft reach out I just saw online that Rolex bid on their name around 50k so yeah I think I might even delete this post haha
Double Edit- Actually looks like I was right in my initial concern. Lyft has not gotten their name from said account and the 50k bid on rolex.eth was placed by a nft collector.
