Loser.com sold for over $21,000

According to GoDaddy, an anonymous person bought Loser.com, a domain worth over $21,000. He has used it to savagely mock self-proclaimed Bitcoin creator Satoshi Nakamoto Craig Wright.
That person has decided to forward the domain to Craig Wright’s official Wikipedia page. A snapshot of the page exists at Everipedia, a Wikipedia fork that incentivizes users with blockchain tokens.
Remarkably, several “loser” top-level domains remain available. A Craig Wright supporter might seize the opportunity to direct one of those at someone else, perhaps a critic of Wright’s. In any case, valuable domains are rarely used in this manner.
The question now is how the lawsuit-happy Craig Wright will react. As we said, the domain registration is currently private – the closest thing to anonymous that you can get.
With a valid subpoena, the registration information can be turned over. If it’s found to be inaccurate at that time, the domain can be revoked on those grounds.
