Internet domain registrar GoDaddy has removed a mysterious listing that appeared today for the domain name Bitcoin.com.

Some in the crypto community noticed Monday that the Bitcoin.com domain appears to be for sale on GoDaddy for a minimum price of $100 million.

But Roger Ver, the owner of the domain, said it is in fact not for sale. "100% fake news," he told The Block. 

Ver showed The Block screenshots in which he appears to be messaging GoDaddy, saying: "Why are you listing my domain name for sale? It isn't for sale."

"Please remove this fake news that is damaging my real brand," Ver's message to GoDaddy continued.

It is not clear how or why the listing appeared, or why it was removed. GoDaddy did not respond to The Block's request for comment by press time.
