    @Elad n ,I didnt know about the potential in XR until you started this thread and i quicky started getting what i could and know i wont sell for cheap.We all have different targets.I knew i was behind when the VR thread started as I was busy with other stuff but XR,i count myself lucky and know I would sell for 5 figures depending on names and others higher.This is just me and i am sure others can decide how they go about their investment whether quickly flip or long term,its not my money.
    Soon we would hear all the upgrades and sales numbers.
    You have made one 5 figure,others have started with some sales and more would surely happen.I did tell you the one in pm i refuse to mention here for a reason i mentioned and i am sure i could get low $1000 but i was contacted by the main owner of the VR and i am sure he would come knocking again.Not everyone can be patience because,we have other financial obligations.

    For me,I just like positive and encouraging words,to learn how to close big sales and make my own decisions.

    Best of luck to everyone here.

    This is why it's frowned upon by some members here when people simply post "offers" received. That in and of itself does not help much especially when the name is not shared (for whatever reason). An offer is not a sale. People have been known to make offers on names in a particular niche just to boost appearance of that particular niche- it happened in the VR thread. When I was turning down 5 figure offers in VR, I didn't post about it a certain impression. A completed sale that's posted adds value to a thread and it removes any thought of doubt of the movement of the niche. That's why some are calling his post "bullsh!t". I wouldn't go that far but It's all about adding value that's all. When someone comes aboard and say "My XR portfolio is one of the tops" but won't share a single name, it leaves a lot to be desired despite the reasoning behind it. It tells me nothing.

    I and others I'm sure prefer post that can edify. Just my 2 cents.

    I didn't hire a broker.
    The IP firm was retained by the company/end-user. They get pad by the assignment --- so they get paid whether there's a transaction or not. I have no idea about "success fees" per their arrangement, as keep in mind, they work on behalf of the prospective buyer -- so I'd imagine the rate would be commensurate with keeping the final sale below a certain amount.

    I think this could be an opportunity to help form the distinctive “lines”.

    5: Premium
    4: Excellent
    3: Good
    2: Decent
    1: meh
    0: Droppy McDropsky

    I’d give it a 2

    Like the chart mate nice idea. Hi all read up very interesting conversation from all here nice to see xr making more chat day by day and some really great names getting scooped up. XrChat very nice name whoever got it. @BostonDomainer nice sale mate as always you do a great job getting sales and help a niche move forward. And @Elad n this thread is awesome.

    I'm trying to solidify my own perception as to the distinctions by which I would consider a name to hold value at this point in time. And while I'm taking the time to do this, I might as well post it so perhaps others will benefit as well. Here is how I would currently classify the "tiers" in my mind.

    5: Premium (xr pay, xr games, xr casino): The ultimate category killer. Names that have the potential to be used among products and services incorporated into some/many/most peoples' daily lives (like Apple Pay, Amazon, etc.).

    4: Excellent (xr bank, health xr, xr doctor, xr cast, xr sports): Names that are the category killer but might not be utilized on the daily (like how IMDB is not visited by most people on the daily but is a very powerful site that most people visit on occasion). Not easy to distinguish from Premium names, and if the right buyer were to come along, a Premium price could be sought by the seller.

    3: Good (xr classes, xr gamer, xr move): Names that are quite strong, and perhaps a even category killer. But the category is not as popular/widespread as others. You have to be a student, or really into fitness, etc.

    2: Decent (xr piano, team xr): Names that might fetch a decent return, dependent upon the term "XR" becoming widely-adopted. For instance, iFurniture is a site. When XR reaches critical mass, these names will hold value in a similar fashion to the "i" phenomenon.

    1: meh: It's not really worth the reg fee IMO. Even when XR reaches critical mass, there are too many other, better, alternatives.

    Yes, 2 would be about right. But if a company called "Wanderlust" pays a branding company 250 K (the standard rate) to come up with a name for its new Extended reality travel app, and it comes back with 5-7 candidates, including XRLUST.com, then the company will hire a broker to acquire the name(s) as cheaply as possible, after they conduct a TM search/clearance. . Then they do A/B tests and decide on the name they will brand the new product, spin-off, etc

    Jaunt.com sold for a very high amount after the company hired a naming expert Anthony Shore ( believe that's his last name) who came up with that name and others for the virtual reality startup that had over 100 million in funding.

    With brandables, a lot depends on luck and the names that companies wish to acquire for re-branding, branding a new launch, or even branding in a specific country or countries.
    XR.com is a category killer, as are RX.com, Sleeping.com, Travel.com, Hotels.com., Casino.com, PrivateJet.com
    Brandables such as Ring.com, Voice.com, UBER..com are super names, and could be more valuable than "category killers" due to the buyer/enduser as in Tesla.com, Crypto.com and hundreds more...

    This has probably been answered/debated, but which is (in your experience based on sales) the preferred placement of XR: beginning or end?

    Ex: XRTest or TestXR

    Thanks!

    Yes, good examples, but then there are opinions per higher valuations with the XR_____ or _____XR, as in 360____, or _____360. If you do a TM search on the USPTO, you'll see the 441 "XR" filings are about even at XR __ and ___XR. Samsung prefers ____XR, as do many other companies, but you'll find many large companies going with XR___. Of course - the word combo would play in role in the positioning in some cases, as well as what word the owner/company wishes to accentuate - Health or XR, XR or Game, for example.

    I have a bunch of great names. But, they have the dreaded dash (-). 😞
    Therefore, they are 0-1.

    Indeed. It does seem to me that some names sound better with the XR at the beginning, and others with it at the end.

    One thing I didn’t explicitly state in my previous post is that one should expect a direct correlation between the potential revenue the XR domain could yield and the value of that domain. xr casino might not be used by everyone, but those who use it will bring the site a lot of revenue; and thus, tier 5 status.

    We all should be considering the revenue potential of our names when purchasing and regging.

    Two questions if I may...

    1. Other than xrgear selling for 5k as per namebio what other "confirmed" XR sales are there?

    2. What would be the value if you change that "G" to a "W"?

    unfortunately, there's no metric for providing a valuation of xrwear.com in comparison to xrgear.com (which wasn't sold to an end-user) -- if you own that name, you could contact the founders at Wearvr.com -- they might be interested. Nice guys -- based in Atlanta, if I recall, But they have limited funding, so purchasing domain names for them most prob would be a "nice to do", but not a "must do". Also, prob would be better if you had WearXR.com

    @nametrekker
    You have been here for a long time surely you know there's a reason I didn't spell it out in my post. So if you don't mind can you edit the name in your post? Thx

    The domain isn't for sale, it was a question of curiosity.

    Lens is a good name IMO. Samsung was recently granted a patent for what could be considered an XR lens.

    XR bit could turn into something as well. I’d consider both keepers. And the first one on your list is a “might as well” if you don’t have many other XR names and want to keep some interest in this segment.

    Looks like I passed the time for editing.
    Yes, been here a long time --- joined in 2004 -- but rarely visit. As you can see -- only 406 (407 now) posts in 15 years. Actually I believe I was member#12 --- but that was under a different moniker that I retired in late 2003 or early 2004.
