A crypto-focused venture firm has acquired the Sushi.com domain name for SushiSwap, an Ethereum-based decentralized exchange (DEX).
Future Fund shared the news Friday morning in a tweet:

It's not clear how much Future Fund paid for the domain. A report from DomainGang.com, which tracks domain sale news, reported on February 13 that Sushi.com was previously listed at $1.9 million.
SushiSwap, a fork of Uniswap, is the second-most voluminous DEX built on the Ethereum network. Data from CoinGecko shows SushiSwap with roughly $382 million in 24-hour volume. SushiSwap reported more than $13 billion in monthly volume for January, according to data collected by The Block Research.
