    This could be a useful piece of information.

    If possible, please, provide a link that shows how this was sorted out.

    The average .XYZ is worthless. Even top keywords hardly sell for anything in the current market.

    Take the .COM value and multiply by 0. That is the ratio, or close enough to it.
    You might get a few hundred in .XYZ for terms that would be worth millions in .COM.

    Investing in .XYZ is a waste of time and resources.

    No comparison at all. You only have to have a look at namebio.com to see that.

    @bmugford knows more about domains than you will ever know. He takes his time to reply to a noob question, and you insult him because you don't like his truthful reply. @blue crystal was asking for the average percentage between .com and .xyz. Well the average would certainly be less than one percent, verging so close to zero, that it's as close to zero, as you can possibly get. There is simply no market for .xyz except for selling them to other domainers who haven't come to the conclusion yet, that they have no value. How many do you have?

    .com vs .xyz sales ratio

    .com sales 2019 = +1000

    .xyz sales 2019 = 4

    Ratio : 1000 : 4 = 250 : 1 ( result Inaccurate, probably more for .com )

    @gipson -- I see the logic you're following, but the critical thing seems to be the PLUS (+) sign before the .COM sales figure.

    Also, @blue crystal the average price would be a pretty worthless statistic to go by considering the variance between sales price of all dot .COM names. You have so many tiers of value that talking about an average for .COMs as a whole is meaningless.

    Consider that Voice.com just sold for 30 million dollars and Nursing dot.com sold this month for $950,000. You also have many high-end deals that are never reported do to an NDA. On the other hand, you have .COM's being sold routinely for $100 or less.

    The median sale price would be a better indicator, but the point here is that .XYZ is pretty darn worthless!

    I have read that many domains with that extension were initially bought up by Chinese owners, but clearly it's not an extension that's panned out at all like any of them would have hoped.

    We are adults here so..

    .xyz had its moment of glory for a brief period of time, I mean, less than 1 month, time when those who had good keywords sold them all, (that was the glory) the .xyz will not return, not now not tomorrow, not ever.

    From Wikipedia:
    "In November 2015, .xyz reached 1.5 million domain name registrations, possibly boosted in part by Google's decision to use abc.xyz for its corporate (Alphabet Inc.) website, one of the first major corporations to use the domain.[5][6][7]However, domain name registry VeriSign and others have claimed that domain name registrar Network Solutions gave away possibly hundreds of thousands of these names by placing them into customer accounts on an opt-out basis.[8][9]

    As of January 2016, .xyz was the sixth most registered domain name on the Internet.[10] As of June 2016, .xyz was the fourth most registered global top-level domain (gTLD) name on the Internet, after .com, .net, and .org.[11]
    hooli.xyz, from the television series Silicon Valley,[12] uses this TLD."

    The article that you cite was written almost 5 years ago, shortly after release of .xyz. In the first year or two after release .xyz did have some high value (mainly registry) sales, but as @bmugford notes in recent years even strong keywords have usually sold for very modest amounts.

    There are a few aftermarket sales in extension still, as the report sales thread at NPs and NameBio show, but usually in $$$ range.

    The extension does have some real world use in some parts of the world, which is encouraging, but aftermarket prices are low.

    There may be enough common sales to do a ratio as you request, and I may try to do it sometime. My guess is it will show something like 0.1% to 1% (I may be way off).

    As @Bob Hawkes has said. This is very old data. As I understand it. They don't have anywhere near those domains today. But I don't have the current stats. Maybe somebody could give us the number of currently registered .XYZ domains.

    According to nTLDStats about 2.34 million registrations, in second place among new extensions. In the zone file are just over 2 million. About 50% are parked.

    Even the 'virtual' company made the switch to .com. I think that pretty much sums up the value of 99.999% of .xyx domains.

    I slightly disagree. Once you have the domain and a running website/service, you can you use this in defence of Trademark opposition, and you get the email.

    I own superannuation.xyz. I can get [email protected] - xyz AND it supports my trademark claim if any discrepancies, opposition or future challenges.

    There is some value to the .xyz

    This is actually true to some extent, and if you're planning to run a real business from it, this makes it difficult for the corresponding .COM to be sold as an "investment" to another domainer.

    That's why the old "buy the .CO and you're successful, upgrade to the .COM later". technique is so popular.

    That might be true, but "superannuation" is a generic term taken in hundreds of total domains. Good luck with a trademark on that, unless it is used for a non-generic secondary use.

    What Brad said basically. Plus, if you're too cheap to get the .com now, it's highly unlikely you will pursue the dotcom in the future anyway and caught up the money for a UDRP or lawsuit.

    It's no general rule as some go .co/net/org but that's a whole different playing field.
