just an idea for now.. been thinking about this for a while.. partly because i see others with similar problem and partly from my own past experiences where I may have had some decent nmes which I thought had potential but had to drop them due to life events not letting me put money into domaining.. or just overall profits for that year or moment from domaining, being lower or in the red or what not.. we all have our stories and experiences i guess. that being said.. I would be looking for people to help setup and or participate in a project whereby we would create a site for anyone to come offer any number of their domains (or entire folios) which for whatever reason they cannot renew but believe in their potential... so these names would be offered for consideration of other members/investors on the site... anyone who also believes in potential of the name.. can then click on it... and finance/sponsor/renew this name for 1 year.... by providing the funds.. the options would be to sponsor it 100% or enter % he wants to sponsor... people can do this for any names on the site for all owners... if he enters only % of the renew price.. then the name remains onsite for other members to sponsor until 100% of renew cost is collected. once 100% is collected.. the members who sponsor are asked to forward funds to site owner(s)... the dn owner is asked to transfr name to site owner(s) escrow for 1 year holding... then site owner renews name.. of course the name of game is still to make sales.. so duirimg that year the domain will be offered for sale on markets.. and sale lander agreed upon would be also used... if sale is made.. then somehow profit is shared. of course this is all very rough outline.. with many options here.. i'd love to hear your views or if you'd like to beome serious about project... this is NOT a project whereby dn owner gets a loan against his domains... i think this here is even more exciting and can help domainers in many ways!!! there can be many variants... possibilities... it can also be particularly useful and helpful for ngtlds with somewhat greater renewal fees... or even for the very popular .io... with solid sale potentials... and yet a rather heavy 30$ renew cost.. plz feel free to share thoughts. good or bad!
