    I sent a list a while ago, Epik didn't buy any, but later I got a loan based on a longer list. This could mean, maybe they were willing to pay $20 per domain on average, not bad for handregs, but I think there is much bigger potential, but still none was sold after 6 months, so this means some outbounding needed, but because of the corona I may have to drop most before being able to sell. Loan paid back. Both parties made profit from this indirectly. "Direct profit for both" would be: selling on Epik marketplace. Maybe because of using BIN option this failed, would make offer work better? They have contact form there. I don't like that there is captcha. Instead of captcha, a simple arithmetic question would work better. Like 12+8, only require captcha from abusing IPs. Also the part saying we accept these payment options, should be above the fold. It would add some trustability... Outbounding is a must, you may not receive a response, but sale rate can jump from 1 percent to 10 percent. I can't imagine how lazy I'm. I delayed this thing full 6 months, delayed other stuff 2 years, and delayed a few things 20 years.
    .....
    edit: maybe not from that list, but another very similar one was sold at epik marketplace for low 3 figures (maybe outbound-inbound mix).

    Yeah, I have sold most if not all of my hyphenated to Germans. You guys prefer hyphens over non-hyphenated. And I have seen five and six words long that stretch the entire rear end of a car. Amazing! I have for instance BierHaus.org but you would probably prefer Bier-Haus.org?

    it's not that simple
    it depends
    it's "fake news" that germans prefer hyphens
    as it is a little more complex

    yes, sometimes hyphens are better than no-hyphens

    but this one
    Bier-Haus.org
    is as bad as
    BierHaus.org

    I spend six months per year in Germany (all I am allowed) and always looking at domains being used. I see mostly hyphenated. Not just a stereotype. Sure the big companies have acronyms and their single word .de, but mostly the others hyphenate the domain rather than putting them together. Lots of word plays too and the hyphens separate these sometimes very long word combo names. And not a stereotype that most or all of my hyphenated names go to Germans. Nothing wrong with that at all. Just a preference and I am happy with it.
