Owner of KanyeForPresident.com is Being Offered $80k for the Domain
Kanye's 2020 presidential campaign announcement may not just be an elevation for his career, but the political run might just load the pockets of an unsuspecting domain owner as well. Tramal Ferguson bought "KanyeForPresident.com" on a whim back in April, and now the 24-year-old might experience a major come up because of it.
According to TMZ, bidding is hot for the website name. In less than 24 hours, Tramal has received several offers, with some offering as much as $80K. However, the youngster is holding out in hopes that Kanye himself will call, and he's made it clear that Ye' is not getting the domain name for free.
Ferguson actually registered a few other domain names along with Kanye inspired site including "PeterGriffinForPresident.com," in reference to the main character on Family Guy.
Last night (Aug. 30), while in the midst of accepting the Video Vanguard Award at the 2015 MTV VMAs, Kanye West went on a 12-minute tirade ranging from the importance of the millennial generation to MTV using his name for ratings, before ultimately ending with news that he'll be running for President in 2020.
