I sold token.tv for $18,500 so it’s not far fetched. Token is superior to coin imo and should be valued accordingly.
Not wanting to provoke a debate @Kate but I am genuinely perplexed by your post implying Andrew's sale of token in xyz is a fluke. Could you please elaborate a bit what you mean?
To me a fluke might be an appropriate label if it was the first sale in the extension (but it is 23rd highest), or if it was the only sale (but there are 482 .xyz sales) or that it is way out of line with other sales (but it is less than 5x the average .xyz sales price, although about 3x the next price this year). It is certainly not the only major sale by Andrew Rosenor, far from it.
What do you mean by fluke? (I actually looked up definition in case I misunderstood the word)
fluke: noun unlikely chance occurrence, especially a surprising piece of luck.

I said fluke because there are not many sales that are noteworthy. The odds that somebody is going to sell a .xyz in that range are obviously very slim. Domainers are hoping that just because it happened to someone, it will happen to them one day.
Honestly, it is amazing 4+ years after new extensions launched a relatively modest $15K sale gets this much attention. I think that says a lot about how much of an outlier decent new gTLD sales are.
