    I acquired my most expensive .io (Solidity/io) through park.io for $4200. Solidity is the #1 Smart Contract Programming language commonly used for smart contracts on the Ethereum blockchain. The Ethereum Foundation has been interested in buying the domain but they have many big internal hurdles to go through.

    I've commonly sold other crypto .io domains from $250-800. Mostly short two words and one word plurals.

    Eth/io is for sale here by a user for $32,000 which I think is a fair value.

    My short list of notable:

    Solidity
    Valentines
    AirConditioner
    EthereumWallet
    EtherBlocks
    Stakers
    Tiff

    Thanks @Bob Hawkes! I am just getting started on Park.io and found this while doing my research. Just picked up my first .io name and hope to get many more!

    Bob...i happen to live on Broad Bay near Crab Creek in Virginia Beach, and since I recently bought the domain BroadBayRealty.com and CrabCreekRealty.com your post inspired me to buy the following;

    BroadBay.io
    and
    CrabCreek.io

    Also, i might be looking to TM both names for generic technology use if there is such a thing. How do you like the looks of; BroadBay® and CrabCreek®? Thanks Bob(y)

    I just want to share my story of regret. I missed .com. Then I started seeing .io domains mushrooming in the tech scene, but instead, I spent a fortune buying .id (which just exited landrush period). Both were premium compared to .com, so I had to pick. Just say I'm an idiot.

    I just own a few, but I'm thinking of selling mine for tech startups. I saw "ENDEAVR" on a vanity tag this afternoon and it looked so good I just picked up Endeavr.io. I'm an old guy, but if i were to start a tech company I'd name id Endeavr™ in a heartbeat. Good Luck(y)

    Do post in the meet and greet -section who you are : lots of people will get you welcome and give a like.
    Do know you can also ask for the important threads to read for newbies (so that you don't have to ask things again that are already anwerred in earlier threads).

    Park.io has always been an enigma to me.

    I would love to read a full and detailed investigation into them.

    My understanding is that at the moment people can not list their .io domain names at Park.io.
    It started as an expiry stream, and continues predominantly that.
    In my chat with Steve Webb, he indicated that allowing user auctions at Park.io was definitely on their radar, and they had tried it with a handful of selected .io names. I am speculating, but that was probably was the case for the metaverse sale that sold twice on their platform. Obviously they want to make sure that the quality of names does not go down significantly.

    As always, I'm late to the party. But I did grab a few one-word names. I was surprised seeing how aggressively some names were being bid on at Sedo and Park. Yes, the quality and meaning of the words were of direct consequence, so they weren't some random sales. I'm sure these must be investors battling out to get good names, but nonetheless, good money.
    I registered 'acing' and 'devolve' in this extension. I'm a bit wary of getting 2-word combinations unless it makes a lot of sense.

    Anyone checking Park.io sales lately? :xf.eek:
    • rabbit.io
      Sold for $48,888.00
    • yh.io
      Sold for $25,000.00

    And loads of others selling for upwards of $10,000. Even better, and not surprisingly, are some Sedo auctions recently. https://namebio.com/?s==ETOxgDM3IzM

    I am pretty sure a bunch of those expired names may have been from resellers who let their names drop since no sales were happening and then people pick up these expired names like hot cakes. I'm curious as to what this tells us about instincts? I feel that often times an original seller may be selling for 'x' amount or less and people might not show interest in it. If it is up for grabs at an auction and others want it too, they suddenly feel more motivated to splurge 2x or more for the same! :xf.rolleyes:

    Enigma in what way. Most of the big end user sales, everyone in the .io space know who the buyers are, and they are buying because they are selling as well.


    They don't but the owner lists his own name from time to time as well as domains that belong to users who know him personally and have been members from the start. But it is not open to public yet.

    Thanks for the post, very informative. I missed out on .io, just did not see it as a good extension, certainly called that wrong!

    If you could buy a 1 word .com for $xxxx you probably would. You haven’t missed anything imo.

    I started buying in November 2020, and I have already sold 3 names totalling a little over 10K from a small portfolio of 40 names and i would have sold more had I not submitted my better names to brandbucket, and they moonshot those names :) but I am hopeful I BB will get me those prices
