Imagine owning Google, the website that is the golden card. Beyond imagination, right? But, this was not true for Sanmay Ved, the guy who owned the Google domain for a minute.
Last year, the Google domain was accidentally made available for purchase for $12 and was also immediately bought by Sanmay Ved. As soon as the purchase happened, Google realised the blunder, cancelled it and paid Sanmay an undisclosed amount.
The amount was recently reveled by Google. It was $ 6,006.13- which if you look closely spells Google (not exactly though). Ved donated this amount to charity and upon hearing this, Google doubled the amount to $12012.26.
The amount seems really less in comparison to the worth of Google in today’s world, but, the fact that it went to charity makes the difference.
