Michael’s expertise in online business stretches back to 1991, when the Internet still worked without WWW or domains. Back then, he published the Austria Boersenbrief, a financial experts magazine, and was a private equity fund manager. In the 2000s, Michael established a trading company that grew to eBay’s biggest powerseller - worldwide. Michael became involved with domains in 2002. He started to register valuable domains and grew a sizeable portfolio. Within a few years, the domain venture grew into the Domain Developers Fund, a Cayman Island-based investment company. From his starting point of being the first investor of Hydrominer, he now is in charge of business development and strategic partnerships for the company.
