    Domainers are saying wut they want to say, speculators are inverted wut they want to Invest, media are posting or wut they want to post, stats might being diddling around for some purposes, in the end, no one can ever escape the truth of the universe. It is only a matter of time, but how long?

    Even today I'll buy COFFEE.COM (for more price) over COFFEE.SHOP or COFFEE.STORE if I'm running a coffee-chain business (and considering all 3 are premium).

    But if I'm throwing a informative site/adsense site and coffee.shop/.site/.top/.club/.online, etc domains are available at reg price $10-$40 then I'll grab this and make money instead of buying $$$$$$ coffee.com premium!

    So new gTLDs have not lowered the .COM value, but yes, they've made MANY new options available for buyers/developers.

    Follow the sales. There are far more reported .COM sales because there are far more .COM sales than anything else.

    While new gTLD do sell from time to time, it is at a much lower rate than .COM. Many of those buyers were never going to be a buyer of a quality .COM anyway. They are just interested in a cheap option.

    In the decentralized finance space (DEFI) many projects are launched on the newer extensions. I have seen some small businesses use them and recently saw a YouTube video mentioning a Medellin, Colombia travel guide operating on a two-word .CITY. Usage is a first step but I have also seen companies using three-word .NET domains and quadruple-hyphenated .COM domains. Does that mean we should invest in those as well? Developers and end users want good domains but generally speaking they see no logic in paying a premium price for a digital asset. So they register whatever they find available for under $50 whether that be a hyphenated .COM, a.BIZ, a multi-word .NET or a newer alternative extension.. That makes it difficult to sell your domains priced at $XXXX while every day you have domains coming up for renewal. Out of the tens of millions of aftermarket domains, IMO the industry sell through rate is under 1%. Perhaps the COVID shutdown of physical stores will push some small percentage of end users to see the light. But I see no evidence of a massive shift toward aftermarket acquisitions by end users.

    I get the impression many cctld's aren't affected by anything. If they are desired, they usually just cater to their own local market with little competition. Of course there are some exceptions, such as .io and .me, which compete with the ngtld market.

    Of course if you spent $100 or $1000 on gTLD it is still money you would have put towards TLD otherwise.
