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! :)

Hi congrats, it looks like these wasn't .com's.

Can you provide a little more info on negotiations ie:- was they bought via BIN or bought via 'make an offer' and countering?

If done by 'make an offer' can you share more details on opening offer?

How long have you owned these domains for, was they hand-regs?

Thanks
They were both BINs, no negotiation and both hand reg’ed within a month ago.

In regards to the Facebook Topic on metaverse and recent name change announcement

We have already pointed out

Meta.com forwards to .org (Facebook)

I just now realized that

Meta.ai also Forwards to .org (Facebook)

That now makes 3 EMD META .extension by FB

......
EDIT::
Also have a LOOK... I swear just yesterday:xf.eek: Meta.com forwarded to .org now it does not!! It's not!
@equity78 did it not?
Edit: still working for others so maybe it's just not resolving on my end for whatever reason.

Did they bock my IP? Lol can't see that, have barely visited the name.

Wouldn't make sense at all to call themselves 'metaverse'. Would require rebranding 10 years down the road again.

In fact, it has already happened once with a competitor. FB could simply rename the holding company containing all new ventures, projects and initiatives. Just like the rebranding from Google to Alphabet, which has not suffered any drawbacks from this name change.

Edit: others have mentioned this as well.

Zuck's ego. He's highly competitive and competition is what he loves for now. He's not *really* in this game for the money. With others jumping in the game and making announcements, I bet he has trouble sleeping at night. People don't take Facebook that seriously, especially the dev community, despite the fact that them acquiring oculus Kickstarted VR again. The idea that the many have is that FB doesnt have the vision to make anything original and compelling. They're so clean and plastic, but that's appropriate for a lot of applications. I think they have a chance for success depending on what kind of "Metaverse" they're working on, but I'm more interested in open frameworks, Mozilla led, WWW Consortium based Web XR than I am walled gardens that are fueled by advertising and consumer data the way FB is going to make it. Hard to say for sure until I see it though of course.

I posted a few pages back it would be like a company in the 90s calling themselves "internet" - don't make sense to me, I could be wrong though.......

I was thinking about it last night. I can see why Facebook would rebrand. Facebook is a bit of an outdated name, I remember early to mid 00’s and thinking about sites that probably influenced Facebook (Faceparty, Facepic, MySpace), they’ve all vanished now but Facebook are still using early/mid 00’s name.

I think it does make sense for them to brand around the metaverse. Over 1 billion users they’ve essentially built a metaverse, I guess now (for them) it’s about being called that (if they do decide brand around it) and taking it to the next stage, focusing on virtual tech/their own currency etc.

Branding around the metaverse is not calling yourself it though......Said it a few times now, every company will have their own metaverse in place - for me it will not be a unique phrase and not something I would personally want to brand a business around.......You want to stand out from the crowd, not be part of it....

They do have the claim to fame that they own the "metaverse" (in .com at least)
