    In this week's Top Topics, domain name investors give their opinion on Rick Schwartz's latest cryptocurrency related domain name purchases, and we find some excellent recommendations for tools and services relating to outbound domain sales. Elsewhere, domainers speculate on the future of four-letter .COM's after Chinese Premium (CHIP) domains fell below $1,000 recently.

    The Future of Four-Letter .COM’s

    In 2015, four-letter .COM's became highly desirable thanks to the popularity of short names amongst Chinese domain investors. This popularity saw prices climb to a high of over $2,500 per four-letter CHIP domain before falling below $1,000 in August 2017.

    Here, investors are speculating on the future of four-letter .COM domain names as a whole. Some are suggesting that higher quality names will continue to hold value, whilst others will continue their decline. What do you think?

    Crypto currency market will increase according the time and it is the good time to invest in crypto currency domains. According to me crypto currency will make in huge market in banking sector such as finance and loans department. so keywords as finance, bcc,bch,loans and combinations of these may be best domains in future.
