Agree that is a more important metric. That is why I included a section on use at least as measured by Alexa 1M. Some highly registered have significant use and others do not. Some that are not that highly registered, like .news, do relatively well in use. Also important to keep in mind that use develops slowly over many years. As long as a TLD is gaining I do not see reason to yet have grave concerns even if actual use is an order of magnitide less than legacy TLDs that have been growing their use for many decades.
They are close but not yet quite at 10% registration wise I think. However use wise they are not as close, maybe 2% ? depending how you measure it.
I am not sure if your question implied a tipping point when they reach 10%, or some similar figure. If so that is an interesting idea. To me the tipping point will be when 50% of general public realizes that after the dot can be one of a thousand different things, and ultimately the TLD serves the same functional purpose, even though some are much better known and more highly sought.
Thanks for sharing Bob
But SEDO can afford to try "moonshots" with these names...they've got nothing to lose. But I doubt SEDO's sales of these extensions is a major part of their sales.

Based on ngTLD ranking on https://ntldstats.com/tld
I love to invest in NewTLDs ,cuz there are lots of potentials out there in a way，escepically， for those who have less money to buy .COMs they want，
but,my advice is that must do some specific research before take it
here are my suggestons in short brief before you intend to buy a new newTLDs
1）Why do you buy this one？anthing can replace it expect for .COMs？
2）reg fees and renewals （desire to renew it 5-10 yrs in one time？）
3）Who is your end user（How do you sell it to your end user？）
I see that another major new gTLD sale is now up on NameBio
Open(.)money sold at a BIN price of $25,000. It is (at least) the third high-value sale this year by @New.Life who invests mainly in new gTLDs.
It is already in use by a business banking company. Their prior domain name was BankOpen(.) (they still have content there as well).
Great news, thanks for sharing!
I want to add a new domain to my website. please recommend me.
Thanks Bob! As always another learning opportunity.
While I do not hold any nTLDs as investments, it is not is a surprise that there are some developers and small businesses which choose them for websites. Many end users are resistant to paying a premium price for a domain name so when they cannot find anything decent in .COM, they will choose another extension. The registrar landing pages are filled with alternative choices when one's desired choice is unavailable for regr fee. Quite often I will stumble across small businesses or Youtube channels or Facebook pages or movie trailers which utilize a non-.COM extension. But normally the keyword combinations are rather mediocre - an indication that the buyer paid reg fee for the domain.
We assume in the industry that portfolio turn is in the 1% range on average but it would be interesting to have an idea of the percentage of end user websites where the domain name was acquired in the aftermarket. I suspect that ratio is well under 1%.
Separate names with a comma.
