Matt Higgins – an infamous investor from TV show Shark Tank – recently purchased an ENS domain for a staggering 30 ETH ($51,853.20). With ENS domains in popular demand, the two-digit/three-digit .eth domains continue to fetch high-value sales. Significantly, Matt Higgins purchased 713.ETH. Not only is this a three-digit domain, but also the numbers hold significant value, as 713 is the Houston, Texas area code often cited in popular cultures, such as music.

Over the last year, there has been a considerable rise and interest in ENS domains. In fact, last month, the Ethereum Name Service confirmed that they had reached the 2 million milestone for names. They tweeted, “2m ENS names created! It took five years to get to 1m names, then 3.5 months to get to 2m names, and we’re just getting started.”
Celebrities are increasingly joining the NFT space. Now, some, such as Matt Higgins, are exploring ENS domains too.
Tweet leads to the discovery of ENS domains by Matt Higgins
Responding to a tweet by @OGDfarmer about .SOL domain names Matt Higgins began to inquire about Web3 domains. He said, “Can you educate me on what you see here? I’m not up to speed.”
In the corresponding replies, many offered their views on ENS domains, which appear well received. Less than 24 hours later, Matt Higgins used his Shark Tank skills and knowledge to bid on various three-digit ENS domains.
Higgins bid on numerous .ETH domains before finally buying the 713.ETH, such as 917 and 718.
