Flow.com acquired by Dapper Labs
Dapper Labs is the company behind the popular NBA Top Shot and CryptoKitties NFT / digital collectibles and the Flow blockchain. Whois records show that the company recently acquired the Flow.com domain name, in what appears to be a private acquisition.
The change in ownership was spotted this morning by Jamie Zoch, and he shared what he found on Twitter:

For many years, Flow.com was owned by a Swiss company called Nidecker SA. Archive.org shows that the domain name was passed to Flow-Bindings.com before the domain name changed hands. Flow Bindings is a popular snowboard binding company owned by Nidecker.
At the time of posting, Flow.com does not yet resolve to an active website. The Flow blockchain website is currently on the unbranded OnFlow.org domain name. I would be surprised if this website didn’t switch to Flow.com in the near future.
I guess Flow.com was a seven-figure acquisition. I have emailed Nidecker to see if the company can share the sale price, and I will update this article if this information is shared with me.
