Plenty of people with domains and you are not noticing i am pointing out same thing.
Unlike it never happening names were sold xxx,xxx that may not be repeated but it may add some credibility to holders. I posted xxx not xxx,xxx for 2021. There are a million plus holders.
Namebio has a more complete list of .xyz sales.
Most recent sales in xx,xxx are hyped up . Still the long term is yet to be determine .
Many of the sold .xyz domains are developed into DeFi, crypto and blockchain related websites, which shows the real demand from end users. We don't know if the demand is long-term, but the current trend shows that the demand is increasing (more sales with higher prices in 2021 than 2020) and is proportional to the popularity of the DeFi, crypto and blockchain industry.
I can't BELIEVE no one mentioned that guy Peter who can FLY...
Or the Greek god (of pastures, flocks, and shepherds).
I have seen disputed results as why i prefer my source.
The so-called "disputed results" are verified as valid sales by Namebio and DNJournal. Some of the sold domains have been developed as well.
It is your freedom to think they are invalid sales and exclude them in your own analysis for fun, but it is very irresponsible to ignore the objective facts to mislead others in a public discussion forum.
Thanks you point out examples which were disputed. I am sure people have disputed sales at all sources. One thing is i am not here to beat down keyword prices or extension so congrats to people with money in pockets.
I am looking at past .mobi sales, like ringtones which is still for sale, music.mobi which was sold at 600,000 USD is now dead. Same as casino mobi ...
Same for poker dot mobi ...
The mobi sales were higher than those of .xyz ...and now its dead. Basically the early bird hyped it up, sold for a huge profit and then they dump it or the extension died. In the case .xyz ..its not even up to the level of the dot mobi yet ...and still the numbers look great but the future look to be the same.
There is a big difference that the sold .mobi were sales between domainers and were never developed into websites, while the sold .xyz are sales between domainers and end users and are developed into websites.
Please do not ignore the domain usage side.
Do you know for sure that it is used and accepted by common public . Like online shops, online news, schools, etc., if it is just a niche like a few "crypto" adopt then it is not going to last long. Because it is only a test .
Recent dip into the water, means nothing. Isolated case. Abnormal usage.
Until its normal ... I think its just a fab. By definition it is a fab. Basically every extension that comes out have investors hoping to get rich, be the first bird, but then it dies. Those who sell when its hyped up, make it alive.
Ever heard of voodoo.com? sevenmile.com ? those where the early birds players ...(Sentence removed in accordance to rule: 1.29)...soon they left the space because they made their money .
1. .xyz is not only used for the crypto niche. It is used by a wide variety of industry players and individuals around the world (some examples: https://gen.xyz/live).
2. Do you have any evidence that the trend is not going to last long? So far, you just showed your belief but no objective facts.
2. Every extension and business experiences early adoption & testing phrase, including traditional extensions like .com, .net and .org, as well as fасеbооk.соm and аmаzоn.соm. It is very unfair and biased to only show the failures but ignore the success stories.
I literally have one .xyz domain and it is a LLL - JAG
Got an offer late last year of $250 and nothing since.....I'm going to keep it though - standard renewal, has a nice ring to it and looks to fit into a few different verticals....
