Dynadot published a post that discussed Dynadot as a company. Trust, Transparency and Stability.
On the point of transparency, they wrote:

“Dynadot has never owned a portfolio of domain names,” explains Dynadot’s Founder and President, Todd Han. “We value our investor customers, which is why we do not want to compete with them or misuse their data.” All expired domains at Dynadot are auctioned off or deleted, and not having a portfolio allows our customers to access all the best domain names.
