IPv4.Global Hits $1 Billion Milestone for IPv4 Sales

Buyers and sellers continue to benefit from the largest pool of IPv4 addresses and prospects.

IPv4.Global, the world’s largest, most-trusted and transparent IPv4 marketplace, today announced it brokered $1 billion in IPv4 address sales.

Of the five Regional Internet Registries responsible for distributing IP addresses, most have run out of IPv4 addresses. However, there remains a healthy global demand for IPv4 addresses, especially by growing networks. These assets, which rarely appear on balance sheets or asset schedules, have become a source of liquidity for organizations in all sectors with unused blocks of addresses. With more than 3,000 completed transactions and significant repeat customers, IPv4 Global has become the preferred address transfer agent for buyers and sellers alike, enabling them to easily find a healthy pool of supply and demand in blocks of all sizes.

“This $1B milestone is further evidence of our position as the largest, most-trusted, and transparent marketplace of IPv4 in the world,” said Lee Howard, Senior Vice President of IPv4.Global. “The billion dollars we’ve returned to our sellers has helped them finance transformative initiatives for their organizations and their customers. For buyers, we continue to provide real-time market pricing, a variety of purchasing options and a dedicated transaction team so they can focus on running their core business.”

IPv4.Global’s success and momentum in the field is a direct result of its transparent marketplace, which is the most comprehensive in the industry and the only one to publicly publish the current pricing of IPv4 blocks traded on its platform. IPv4.Global’s recent first half of 2023 trends report highlighted current pricing and trends that impacted the market. While the analysis suggests stable to rising prices in 2023 for large blocks, with small blocks steady or falling..

The company’s $1B transfer milestone can also be linked to the skills of the dedicated IPv4.Global team. The company’s transfer agents are well-versed in navigating the complexity of IPv4 transfers and make the potentially onerous process fast and seamless for both buyers and sellers. This expertise was recently recognized by ARIN, which named IPv4.Global as one of the few companies to meet the rigorous requirements for its Qualified Facilitator Status.

The company’s technical expertise also means that it can help rehabilitate the reputation of IP blocks previously hijacked by spammers. It also offers a free audit tool, ReView, that allows network operators and administrators to gain visibility of their IP address usage quickly and easily and more effectively manage their records.

IPv4.Global customers have also benefitted from the fact that the company is backed by Hilco Streambank—which has multiple options for financing the acquisition, sale, or leasing of IPv4 addresses.
