    China-based new gTLD .top has become only the second new gTLD to pass the one-million-domain milestone.
    The gTLD, managed by Jiangsu Bangning Science & Technology Co, had 1,000,469 domains in its zone file on Saturday, an increase of 5,808 on the day.
    The zone has grown by 453,833 domains in the last 90 days, according to DI PRO stats.

    The rapid growth can no doubt be attributed largely to price, feeding the current Chinese appetite for domain investment.

    This 'first million step' was just a question of time - like the second / third / ... will be.
    It was the expected result of this gTLD's name itself.
    I believe .top will spread heavily worldwide.
    Referring to the mentioned article (source) I think that sooner or later also GoDaddy and eNom will add .top to their range of new gTLDs - also just a matter of time.
