Elon Musk buys his old X.com domain from PayPal

From Engadget - July 11, 2017

Whatever the price, the transaction seems to have been done on friendly terms. Musk's tweet says "Thanks PayPal for allowing me to buy back X.com! No plans right now, but it has great sentimental value to me." I'd be sentimental too -- the $165 million he earned from PayPal, though it seems quaint nowadays, helped him launch SpaceX and Tesla, companies now valued at around $15 billion and $50 billion, respectively.
