It's interesting to learn how domaining has progressed! I've been curious about what domaining was like in the early days if nP and beyond.

I'll go first:

When I started in '16, 4Ls were all the rage, along with CHIPs. No one ever knew 4L coms were valuable until they randomly boomed along with CHIPs. There were stories about people mass selling 4Ls on eBay and making alotta cabbage.

For those of you who don't know, CHIPs are Chinese-flavor domains that are either all numbers up to six length and don't contain 0 or 4 (unless they're at the ends or in a pattern). 4L chips don't contain vowels or v.

There was some self-driving trend too that happened along that time... with one person spending 2k on fresh hand regs. Idk what all happened with that ^_^ as I haven't kept up.

What about you guys in the 00s and 10s?
