    @OnlineDomainCom summarized it best; “no reserve”.
    This looks to complete Frank’s exodus from DN industry

    I guess the idea auction.link (that registered on Jan 26 2021) comes from my recent $5 auction thread on namepros [***auctions.com] that was sold previously for $888 on sedo ?

    Congratulations to Frank with liquidation new tlds 👍 dot com is king and you know it ;)

    Haha the guy who made his fortune on the .com's back then ditched the .com saying it has no future just to preach how cool and profitable will be the new gTLDs in the coming years ... my oh my how the tables have turned.

    Why do I believe that Frank is going to separate his ways from UNR and join ICANN at some senior role?

    Time for Frank to retire and focus on enjoying his Schillings

    Seriously, can you blame the guy?
    Life goes by way to fast, he has nothing left to prove.

    I think it was more he made his money selling .coms to end users, then made even more money selling new gtlds to newbies, took that money and bought more .com. He was always in the auctions buying .com. So he never ditched it. I know he doesn't post much on blogs but I remember when .sexy came out and he was pushing that, some truly horrible ones. I never believed he actually thought these new gtlds were great, just that he knew he could make some money from them. Imagine you're a newbie domainer and you see him saying how great these are.

    Haven't checked in awhile but remember sales being lower and overall reg counts (new gtlds) are going down.

    This chart - https://namestat.org/s/newgtld-summary

    Down almost 3.5 million regs in just the last 8 weeks. That's about a 13% drop.

    Just mho, but that is a shit list of extensions. I understand making money. I also understand knowing better and making money off of people who don't. It may be legal, but I'd sleep like shit knowing I'd sold that kind of crap to newbies who trusted my knowledge and success.

    Did the domain name trade at last?
