    buyer says its max of his budget... 500 was his first offer... my counter was 2500.. so I now sit on his 1k offer

    It's about how you believe it. If you see bigger potential on it, then don't sell at $500. If you personally ask me i see on it a value around low $x,xxx. But it's personal opinion. Also, if you need money desperately, it's a good move to grab the sale as it is. If you have money back up and you are decisive, you can lower your initial demands and aim to $800-$1500 range.

    so the curiosity here for me and this thread is more along lines of the name itself... potential uses and applications.. and thus whether sale potential here is solid or not...

    feel free share views

    Time travel is a strong generic term in English, but there is no viable product for it, so that may limit the market for the domain. Let me say again I think the term is strong.

    Does $1000 make you happy. If you spend more time on it, will you get more or not?

    If you don't have a happiness goal in mind, you will forever be chasing happiness.

    If you want to take all their money I think there are easier ways than domaining to accomplish that.

    P.S. i dont think you want to take all their money its just an illustration.

    I have seen divisions of companies spend five figures monthly on Google Adwords campaigns or even six figures on IT projects. So when occasionally we see a report of an end user paying $25k or more for a domain which is uniquely valuable to them, it is not that surprising.

    If several companies have developed a commercially feasible time travel solution, I suppose time travel domains would have end user value in promoting the product to customers. Tourism pre-covid was a huge industry - flights, hotels, cruises, excursions, etc. How much revenue could a time travel company generate for trips to observe notable historical events? How about government entities which might want to intervene in history? But returning to reality, why would would anyone pay a premium price for a domain like this? Maybe for a video game? In this case the domain is not even a .Com so I would say take the money and run.

    Other people explained better than I could, but it is a generic sci-fi term with no products and a .co at that. Sure there could be other end users, but even then I wouldn't price higher than your current offer.

    the buyer is a timetravel

    well that's partly the problem isn't it... that blockchain is pretty safe bet for being the future. whereas timetravel is not hehehe

    The other way to look at it is that if time travel was actually possible, it would have already been snapped up by now... or maybe the guy you are now negotiating with IS that time-traveller!

    EDIT: Jesting aside, time-travel into the past is pure science-fiction and defies all known physical laws.

    true...well no namebio action on timetravel anything either... more power to buyer if in future he will get bigger offers... unsure if reseller... but even endusers often decide to sell if juicy offer comes in. I think I sat on it with little action long enuf...renewals adding up too on co
