I do wonder if some of these sales are legitimate or just to attract interest
I mean, this is just nonsense... Where is the $126k value in this?
You remember in the old days when people would ask for appraisals for worthless domains and then afterwards say they were not worthless and they'd received several 5 figure offers? Or you remember even further back after afternic started and people were 'bidding' 5 figures on each other's domains to try and pretend they had value? Well there you are. The place may change but the method is always the same And as always there will be people lined up to ignore the naked emperor.
But as a marketplace, surely there are transaction fees and actual crypto changing hands?
Maybe I'm just nieve? Like, even if what you say is true, what's the point? Who actually benefits? Is there even a beneficiary?
NFT creator sells to them-self; creating perceived value. Profits from future sale, regardless of higher or lower. Probably sums it up!
Digging up an old thread, did anyone here get into Topshot?
Baby bites finger. Earns £500k.
Not looking good for crypto at the moment market smashed to bits.
Consolidation has to be expected when it has grown 900% in 12 months.
My ex-wife knew the family through a friend. They made a fortune years back from the video just being viewed milions of times on youtube. Enough to buy a big house near the Thames in Buckinghamshire.
Re: Investments for the future
Will hash tag domain names be the next big thing that takes off??
so rather than being as an example
Just a blip. we are @ internet in 1996 in terms of adoption.
1996... I wish I'd hoovered up some of the available domains in 1996... I only started in 1999. I wonder who here at Acorn reg'd the earliest domain name / when.
I imagine the problem with # is how you control all the rubbish that other people gatecrash the # with? (not very knowledgeable on this subject, but that's my first thought)
But if we were at 1996 again in a different context, then I'd think: opportunities.
I thought the dame with gmail usernames once. I got in early with various 6-letter personal names. Only got one left, and selling them is against t&c.
I think it's human nature to try to spot the new opportunity so you can get in early. I like that attitude. My brother got in early with bitcoin. It's up and down but still a win for the early entrants.
I like this thread. I like domainers. There is also a 'collector' instinct in all this: probably goes back to hunter-gatherer ancestors.
I'm defo amongst a real group of hardcore HODLERS!
I'm HODLing no matter what. Invested in ETH, DOT, VET, MATIC, ADA & AAVE and that's it. None of this Dogecoin to the moon BS. Anyone out there with spare cash laying around, MATIC is still early, get in while you can I have big hopes for this platform.
DOT is going to explode when the powerchain auctions start. You have some safe bets there Ben. I also like the Solana team.
Check out Swipe and Venus, Both owned by Binance.
Agreed. Why not buy the industry killer, single dictionary word domain from me? biotechnology.co.uk
This is a really silly thing to say, pull up any chart longer than 3 months and think again!
Or zoom out to 5 years, just to be certain. LOL
People often forget to zoom out. I guess anybody not familiar with the concept would be worried right now. But we can almost time travel with zooms, well, it's a good indicator at least. Thanks for the tip Laz, I'll be sure to check them out this week.
