    First to correct myself, I do have one .live currently. How did I forget it? A name I like a lot, and even had a price inquiry on two weeks ago (no sale or offer).

    Certainly sports offer options, but be careful not treading on league or team TMs. I find somewhat helpful to look at the sort of names that sell in .tv to get idea on what MIGHT sell in .live.

    Personally, I find that it is really hard to make the numbers work, probability wise, for anything with a significant premium renewal, just realizing that most domain names do not sell for years. If you mean standard .live renewal, do shop around. Places like TLD-List will show you the main options, they currently have .live renewal at $12 to $44 per year depending where you go.

    The .gg renewals are of course even steeper - I could not find any of the major places less than $60 per year and many more than that. If you shop around .vc renewal just a little over half that, is I think one argument for domain investors to prefer the .vc sector, plus it seems that venture capital firms not retticent
    to use the extension.

    But this is getting off the main topic of the interview with Jason.

    I noticed today that fuse.vp is now in redirection use. It goes to fusevp.com, a Seattle based venture capital group.

    Yes was just pointing out who the buyer was, I don't think we knew that at time of interview.
