Penny auction site DealDash has acquired the Swoopo.com domain name. DealDash was one of the very first penny auctions to launch in the US (April 2009), they launched as BidRay. The penny auction paid 10,000 euros, $13,170 US to purchase the domain name on Sedo just a few weeks ago.
Swoopo was the world’s first penny auction site, an interesting type of online auction website that had bidders pay for bids.
When browsing to Swoopo.com a message on top reads, “Swoopo is no longer in service. DealDash, the longest running fair & honest auction site provides a similar service.”
