    Many people like to make their opinions known when it comes to domaining. Some attach their name to it and can provide hard data on what they have done and why they see things the way they do. Others speak anonymously from behind a keyboard with just a username and avatar. Most don’t provide any […]

    "Frank Schilling 2013Speaking at The Digital Marketing & gTLD Strategy Congress conference. “.Com will become like AM radio” Safe to say .Com is SiriusXM the radio people are willing to pay for."

    I don't think he ever actually believed that. Just marketing to sell new gtlds. Take the money he makes selling new gtlds (to mostly newbies) and buy more .coms. He was always active buying .coms at the various marketplaces. It's always where he made the biggest sales.

    “.Com will become like AM radio.” - that was funny to read.

    Don't see how .com could be dethroned, at least not in the next few decades. After that - let's wait and see.

    Gtlds Are the future

    . Com s

    Investors have yet to realise it yet

    . Com investors can't have people thinking. Com is a finished extension because they have invested so heavily in. Coms that they are looking through biased. Com glasses

    . Com could collapse easily enough

    Comparing. Com being better than gtlds is like saying that

    Usd is better than libra coin

    Libra coin isn't even available to buy yet but libra coin will be the biggest global currency within 5 years which could cause a dollar crash

    .com definitely is the king for the centralized website but is too heavy to the decentralized one to start the new era of the internet, .eth, .xyz, .crypto are the good investment for me. so yeah, .com is like AM radio.
