Is .NET still more valuable than .IO?

    Just noticed "attend.io" sell on Park for $8,010. A little shocked to be honest.

    I own the .NET version of the domain and while I've been a fan of .IOs for a number of years, which extension would you value more: .io or .net?

    There is no black & white answer here.
    Strong, single word .IO domains related to crypto, gaming or other specific tech areas are likely to be more valuable than the .NET equivalent.
    .NET on the other hand would seem more appropriate for domain names that do not meet these criteria.
    In other words, .IO is more specific and specialized, while .NET is more generic and broadly applicable.

    I would rather have .NET than .IO in almost every scenario, often by a wide margin.

    The ".net" for me

    ...when it comes to ".net" and ".org", a little different. This can depend more
