July started a surge in Meta sales, not just sales but recent handregs to five or six figure sales.
I covered Meta here, some commenters added sales that have not been reported.

Personally, I like the full "metaverse" keyword a lot more than "meta" despite the sales data.
I understand the need to let users type less letters, but description wise I prefer the full keyword.

As for the trend, it may be just the beginning.

I like metasex.com for $3500 :) I think anything other than .com won't survive for long. Although this industry may be more open to NGTLD's than most.

Great sales in that list

It will slow down like all the other niches do. Its promising if you have a handful of relevant meta keywords in your arsenal.

In my opinion Metabay.com was grossly undersold.

MetaAvatars.net, MetaRooms.net and Metapayments.co are three of the most incredible sales in years. For recent handregs they are off the chart.

Meta.so @Nikul Sanghvi enters legendary status for me, just an incredible price.

My bet about this sale, giving the timeline of domain registration and sale, is that it is not likely related to the "Meta" boom, but more related to what you find in first place in Google search for "Metapayments" or "Meta Payments".
But that's just my guess :)
By the way, MetaPayments in King is for sale with a minimum offer of $3,000 at Sedo.

metaljunks.com 116 USD 2021-09-01 GoDaddy
metal.group 170 USD 2021-08-30 Catched.com

I would consider these "metal" keywords, not meta (the first one being just junk).

Of course in .com (at least), meta+L (or LL) is going to be a play especially after MetaXR sale.

Yeah, I would also not consider metaphysicalhealing.com a "meta" domain in that sense.

I wouldn't be surprised if the buyer and seller of many of these domains knew each other or shared the same shoes.

metaphor.xyz could've gained traction due to "meta hysteria" I suppose?

Metauta.com looking even better for me. Fortunate the second part even has multiple meanings.

Only the beginning.

It will slow down in volume for some extensions but we will see much bigger sales in time.

I believe that EMD names will sell for 6-7 figures if relevant as well.

Top ones I will not let go for less.

This is a paradigm shift.

Preferences aside, Meta beats Metaverse hands down both as a standalone or as a prefix/suffix.

Metaverse only makes sense to me as a standalone. But that's my preference as well as an opinion

100% correct, I thought I deleted all the metal in the list, I missed those two thank you Forge.
But that would have missed out names like metalink if it was part of the original list unless you went over the list manually
