    Main reason here is Afilias... In 2020 they are completely out of the game...
    No any VISIBLE .PROmotional efforts from them, 0.00 at all major registrars.
    They think only about .io and .info

    .PRO should be sold to Donuts or Verisign, or to another smart company...
    ~9 years .PRO with Afilias - did you notice any significant .PROgress??? Afilias is absolutely impotent in terms of marketing.

    This is how Afilias "works"...

    @DNGear
    What are your results on Uni?

    For me total silence since May... Even fakes disappeared.
    All domains are with enabled Uni brokerage.

    Thanks for asking. @Jurgen Wolf
    It seems to be a big mess in Uniregistry. Some brokers wouldn't care about enquiries.
    They just seems to deal with XXXXX, XXXXXX offers.
    I dont know which leads they normally deal with.
    From my experience, its a time waste.

    Not only uniregistry, Some marketplaces dont seems to have ethics. They just need traffic.
    They just grab traffic and do whatever they want.
    I dont see a trustworthy marketplace except AfterNic from my experience.

    IMHO

    ~70% of my Uni domains are in BIN mode.
    And even non-payers disappeared, last fake was on April'25 per high $xxx BIN.

    Just received from Uni...

    GoDaddy is indeed part of our sales network but the syndication with them is not live yet.
    Our developers are currently building this so pretty soon domains listed on the Uniregistry Market will appear for sale on the GoDaddy search as well.

    Ryan from Uni said that their brokerage must be enabled for syndication...

    And I just checked a few my UniMarket .PROs on GoDaddy...
    At least partially it works as of now... some of them are shown...
    I guess, next week all Uni inventory will be visible...

    Unfortunately, it has very little effect for us...
    Because if you submit at GoDaddy just desired keyword (without TLD) - .PRO listings are NOT offered...

    My experience is the same...
    And looks that December will be my final month there, even their pseudosyndication has no any effect.
