Hey all figured with the recent .io 6 figure sale and the nice .xyz sale by a follow NP member. We should open a showcase and discussion thread here.

Metaverse is a fast growing keyword, term and niche! Let's share and discuss our name and news.

I've only got One to start with but its a GOOD one my favorite ending keyword on most names.


MetaverseHub.com



Welcome! :)

Wow,
Since the dawn of civilization, humans have had only one world in which to live: the real one. But tech visionaries say we’ll soon have an alternative ( I own Alternative Verse In dawt com): a virtual world where our digital avatars(i own D'avatars in dawt com) and those of people in our communities and around the globe come together to work, shop, attend classes, pursue hobbies, enjoy social gatherings and more.

Interesting times. I've got Alternative Metaverse in the same extension as yours.

It’s apparent that in the area of domains and the function of .com to brands, you come off as less informed on the concept, just a current view, seems you some how web3 will make com obsolete just be the mere “choice move from”.

It’s ok to have your own opinion

They aren’t choosing much of all, yet having to get Very creative! As the BEST names and BRANDS in com have been taken forever ago.

Optting for .io .xyz and others does make sense to build on, while growing and raising capital, and then maybe acquire there emd .com or rebrand to a new Name when funds allow.

The Metaverse is NOT riding of the hype of NFTs as it’s part of it, just as crypto is part of it, just as gaming is sort of it , just as esports is part of it ..and so on and so on.

Matter a fact if you go back and look in the DeFi thread well over a year ago….I SAID this was going to happen. Before any of NFT hype, I said then, Defi , money, gaming , betting, entertainment…it’s all merging for ONE new element, all piece of the “puzzle”……..Each ONE of these NICHES has a ROLL to play in making the Metaverse happen, making it work, making it a reality.

Discussion is great and I’m not knocking anybody for that and you’re more than welcome to I think the Metaverse is extremely interesting why Elad and I also invested in it very early since we started this thread.

To be honest it does seem a bit odd a profile as new as yours I see you’ve only been a member here since July and a couple post in and to really be harping on the-anti-.com thread and my honest view it really just comes across as someone trying to batter down.com prices hoping someone out there is foolish enough to drop a good one so someone else can pick it up. I may be wrong and you just may honestly just think the.com don’t matter and will not matter but again the public trust it will and that’s the only reason you will find that the biggest crypto exchanges out there :

Coinbase Bitstamp.com or .rg & Binance. And they right now I have the masses attention and their wallets and accounts. trusted extensions. Don’t get me wrong I still love.io that a I XYZ and all that I can just understand that utilization and want to utilize that I want to go for a com)

This is directed to all reading, so I can squash this debate about short biz long (there is no debate some people just have a preference and I respect that too)

Meta - short and great for brand and branding, many sales also meany other meanings than just the “Metaverse “ yes I agree we will see More sales in meta for these 2 reasons..however

Metavese +
While we currently see lack of sales on the longtail +keyword as it’s very early

I’m going to say right now, when they happen, a few will shatter current prices in price records. I guarantee it. While there may be fewer sales in numbers, the price in which some of these WILL go for will be a shock to most. Another reason for lack of metaverse sales is also the fact that most if not all the BEST Top Keywords are locked up either in companies or in investors who are not selling for 4 figures bin on An ft dsl …or they would’ve sold already lol ( if one would think these companies making these other BIG .net .org .co purchases would not snap up some of these exact match long tail versions if they were priced at $x,xxx BIN right now and you’ve not been doingYOR on this forum long enough)

“Meta”is cool but “Metaverse” is also fun to say fun to look at to cool a word to chop up and not use, the same thing with Blockchain, but if you just say “block “ - block what? Block is a good brand when you say blockhub or BlockPros BlockTech but it’s not the same as “Blockchain” plus keyword:

Here are some examples for those who may have doubts that long tables will not sell: or be devD

(Notice +GOOD keywords) not some random +myhairygreenchair.com Poor lol blah blah (blockchait.com however good it’s devD lol)

BlockchainGaming.com
BlockchainHub.com
BlockchainLabs.com

And here some examples of the keyword with average Brandable words added

AgroBlockchain.com
RiotBlockchain.com

(My favorite) The great motivational speaker, Les Brown that I follow and listen to he once said :

“be careful what you say and how you speak because when Once you open your mouth you tell the world who you are”

In todays online world, your website, your domain, your virtual identity is the same thing it tells the world who you are and if you want mass adoption….well you can walk into any Walmart right now & 98.6% of people you look at won’t even know that. .xyz .ego .hashpound .124 .bagel . blah blah blah even exist.

Again I’m not against these extensions simply just saying I personally have a different view and understanding of and for their utilization in the present time of todays world.


Sorry for the long post everyone I try not to do this because my writing is not that great and then I go on rants but also I kind of figured I wanted to get all my thoughts out and done in one post so I don’t have to do it over and over. Most of all I spend 30mins correcting typos on mobile lol)

GL to all!

Enjoy the thread and be kind to one another! :)
1. A post of mine and Elad's was deleted by mods - after Elad falsely accused me of going off topic. Mods left all the info intact and deleted the 2 posts where Elad linked to mods, and my subsequent post correcting the situation. So ya'll have missed some info.

Otherwise this is getting 'beyond' or should I say MetaRidiculous! I've said nothing at all negative about .com in the general web 2.0 sense, historically. I started out thinking it will be domaining business as usual.

What you seem to miss is the question of whether the metaverse will be decentralised, and if so that will mean decentralised domains. To me it seems this is what all the major fuss is about with the metaverse and crypto/NFTs. Right now everyone needs a centralised domain to do business but as we "transition" to the metaverse everyone in crypto wants decentralised, like the NFTs and their bags of crypto money. There is clearly talk & thinking in the space about the value of .com to the metaverse.
It's perfectly logical to question the future, when it comes to SPECIFICALLY THE METAVERSE (that doesn't even exist). The reality of the .coms being priced too highly comes in to play and will just drive the evolution quicker.

Nothing is set in stone, I have already said I'm not saying I'm 100% right. I'm saying it is uncertain now, where that has NEVER been in question before.

But there seems to be a HECK of a lot of interest in e.g. https://twitter.com/unstoppableweb
Clearly something is changing.

But we'll see... I'm sure (am I?) there will be some big metaverse .com sales in the short term, like usual. Whether that is justified, worth it, and really necessary, I honestly don't know now. The metaverse is a completely different scenario (visually) to the current web.

And yes, personally I think it's a good thing anyway, that kids can just make up a space or verse called e.g. "happy.place" and don't need to pay $30M to some billionaire for HappyPlace.com - OR DRIVE ALL THE 'TRAFFIC' THERE (the existing FOMO excuse). How the metaverse works will be different to the web 2.0

Yea, it must be nothing...

Facebook owning Meta.com is not related to the Metaverse :ROFL:
But it forwards to the .org and here is what that is all about

WELCOME TO META
Meta, a Chan Zuckerberg Initiative project, is a biomedical research discovery tool that analyzes & connects millions of scientific outputs to give you a comprehensive view into science. You can easily explore research and follow developments by searching for specific terms or creating customizable feeds of papers and preprints.

Yes, the Zuckerbergs have a project running on the .org. The .com is forwarded to that project. That project at face value has nothing to do with the Metaverse as it sits now. Only time will tell if that will change.

Personally, I could care less if my Meta names were used for projects related to the Metaverse or something entirely different. That's the beauty and versatility I considered before investing in only Meta names.

There is no right or wrong approach here. Just get good names and wait it out.

Facebook, a metaverse company owns meta.com and maybe metaverse.com

Every company under the sun is going to have their own "metaverse"...........

Not sure if calling yourself "metaverse" is going to cut the mustard.......

Don't get me wrong they are killer domains but from a branding perspective it seems off to me - it would be like a company calling themselves "internet" back in the 90s?

Meta would be the better choice for them.

They, a metaverse company, own meta.com, which is forwarded to meta.org, a non-metaverse related project.

When meta.com becomes or is forwarded to a metaverse project, then I would understand the correlation. Until then, Facebook, a metaverse company, can own any name they want without me jumping into conclusions.
