What country are you based in?

Ukraine.

Do you feel your location has an effect on your domain investing?

Yes, I do. There are many different services that do not work or work with restrictions in Ukraine. For example, PayPal, before the war, worked only for sending payments, now they are also allowed to accept funds, but only from friends. Our Ministry of Finance explains this by the reluctance of PayPal to cooperate with Ukraine, and PayPal says that the problem is in our legislation. Another example is Escrow.com. After the annexation of Crimea in 2014, Escrow.com excluded Ukraine from the list of supported countries. Although we are a victim and it is a bit unfair.

How long have you been involved in domains?

I became interested in domains in 2017, that’s when I registered my first domain as well. But I take it seriously only for the last 3 years.

Not yet, but I strive for it 🙂 According to my formula, I need about 3,000 domains to generate revenue from domains so that I can do this full-time. Currently, I own 568 domains. So there is room to grow.

What's the best advice you've been given by another domain investor, either directly or through something they've said on twitter or in an interview?

What kind of goals do you set yourself?

Grow my portfolio gradually to 1000, 2000, 3000 quality domains. Become a full-time domain investor in a few years. Finish developing 2 of my side-project and earn the first revenue out of them this year.

How do you manage your portfolio?

I try to keep my domains among 2-3 major registrars and they’re listed in full only on Dan.com, where you can export them, make changes and import them into Afternic

Do you also have any NFTs or Crypto in your portfolio?

I have both Crypto and NFTs, but I try not to spread myself to much on such risky investments.

Around $10K.

Have you ever done outbound? If so, were/are you successful?

Yes, I have. My biggest outbound sale is $1500 via LinkedIn.

You're given $10k to spend on domains, how do you spend it?

I’d try to acquire one CVCV, VCVC, VCCV or good-standing 2-word .com in private for around $5K. 2-3 domains in the $500-1000 range and the rest for smaller purchases.

Outside of domains, what other business/wealth/personal growth figures do you look up to?

A. J. Hoge and Tony Robbins.

Playing with my 2 kids, building my side-projects, listening to podcasts and watching Adventures with Purpose.
