BuyOut
BuyOut means the purchase of all shares of a domain. If the domain owner accepts a BuyOut offer for his domain and the value of the BuyOut offer is less than 150% of the domain’s current Fusu market value, then 90% of shareholders have to agree to the BuyOut for it to become effective. If the BuyOut offer is higher than 150% of the domain’s market value, then the domain’s shareholders get paid out their pro-rated share of the BuyOut price and the domain is sold.

Public Shares
Public shares are those shares of a domain that are not owned by the domain owner. For example, if a domain has 10,000 total shares, and the domain owner listed 45% of it on the Exchange, then the domain would have 4,500 public shares.
Share Bid
Bid means a BUY or SELL offer for shares.
Shareholder
Shareholder means a person who owns shares in a domain.
Shares
Shares mean the pro-rated rights to a domain's derivatives values, such as future sale revenue, monthly parking revenue, as specified on the Fusu website; these derivative rights are sold by the Domain Owner to Users, who become Shareholders in the process, and who can trade them on the Exchange.
Standard Auction
A Standard Auction is a classic auction for selling a domain completely.
  • The domain is listed immediately for auction, without any verification through Fusu.
  • The domain is not reviewed or guaranteed by Fusu.
  • After the end of the auction, the winning bidders pays the domain owner directly, via the payment method allowed by the owner.
  • This auction type is free of charge.
If the auction has a winner (meaning if the reserve price is met), Fusu will send a message to the domain owner and to the winner with each other's contact details. After that, it is up to winner and seller to settle the transaction and transfer the domain. Please note that in the Standard Auction, the complete domain is sold, and not just shares.See also: Premium/Postpaid Auction, Premium/Prepaid Auction
Transaction
A transaction is the part of a BUY or SELL Bid that has been executed. For example, if you create a Bid to BUY 500 shares of a domain at $1 per share, and another user is selling 200 shares in that domain, then the effective transaction is for 200 shares.
