    I'm not an expert in numerical domains also I do not own one though I thought to maybe add one to my portfolio at some point.

    My knowledge about number domains is that they are apparently quite popular in Asia (China), some numbers are "good" others are "bad", there are combinations and patterns, etc. My knowledge about them mainly roots to this article: http://ggrg.com/numeric-domains-2-0-the-definitive-guide/

    Trying out a few hundred random 5- and 6- digit number combinations at a registration service brought the result that all of those are already registered.

    So I'm wondering if there might be a bubble when it comes to numeric domains.

    For me it seems as if numeric domains are bit overrated?

    Are there so many possible combinations that make sense and have a worth?

    Or is the worth of numeric domains based on (an increasing number of) wealthy Chinese that seek to invest their wealth in foreign currency bypassing tax as mentioned in the article at point 1?

    Or is there maybe something else?

    This topic hasn't opened to me quite yet, so I would be curious to hear some opinions.

    You could have a look at this site: shortnames.com as well as namebio.com to get familiar with recent 5N and 6N transactions. For me, I consider it's a purely speculative field and I stay out as I am not familiar with the chinese culture

    Well known that rarity plays a part, over-rated not likely. Chinese culture plays a part for sure. Numerics 5N and lower are quite liquid. 6N's are a different scenario and I would be wary of these unless really good patterns. Ten years from now the 5N market will be worth a lot more, if we are to use 4N market as an example. Numerics are short and can be used as part numbers, project numbers, birthdates etc

    Others will probably agree. But in my experience - There always worth a lil less once you buy them, and then even more so after you finally sell them so i hate them. Unless u can get them for a great deal, or its like an unbelievable conmbo

    Thanks for the opinions.

    Hmm... they seem like so many other topics. Some believe in them, others don't.

    Just go to Namebio.com and you will see the recents sales data, compared to last year it is now a slump but short numerics will always have value, 5N and less, good luck
