    'Frank Schilling (born in 1970) is a Cayman Islands based 'Internet Investor' whose portfolio of domain names is one of the largest ever built, and estimated to be valued in the vicinity of $500 million dollars.[1] He was one of the first to speak publicly about the subject of domain investing during a Tech TV interview with Matt Markovich in 2002, describing those who invest in high-value generic domain names for the purpose of future development. Today participants in this space are collectively known as domainers.[2]

    You truly are the industries best campaigner for higher domain name value. If there was an award for this, I'd vote for you.

    There's big buyers lurking.. I've seen multiple 100k+ real offers for .com.au's in the past month alone, many will complete.

    Can anyone take a guess at the highest value domain name in AU? (even your own, sales not publicly traded, guesses at value based on comparitive .com sales etc.) I know the actual answer for the biggest sale, I just want to see if anyone gets close lol.
