Chinese domain market analysis : Prepare for the hard crash

ZFBot
Chinese domain sales report.

Chinese domain sales report.

We’re at the end of October, and Chinese domain sales will begin their final descent, in a fashion consistent with the overall annual slump.

It doesn’t matter if it’s the Year of the Monkey or the Year of the Rooster (2017.)

Trading among Chinese domain investors for the type of short domains (2 – 4 characters, .CN, .COM, .NET TLDs) that we’ve been keeping track of, has slowed down tremendously.

Overall, it seems as if the Chinese domain market trades actively for 8-9 months in a calendar year; the beginning and end of the year show little to no activity.

In our opinion, the market is heading for a hard crash, at this rate, sometime next year.

As the volume of domains traded in China has become considerably smaller, we only report on the particular market every few days.

Today’s list of domains spans October 16 – October 20.

In the good old days of active Chinese market trading, we’d see almost as many domains on a single day or two days max; for now, this domain volume appears to be the norm for several days’ worth of trading.

Disappointing, for sure, particularly for those Chinese domain investors that were somehow convinced that asset prices will continue to rise.

When a commodity is overly traded, it loses a good chunk of its value with every trade. In the case of domain “Chips” this is evident: they are trading at 40% of peak value, or less.

Those who bought at or around peak, are now the proverbial “bag holders.”

    Instead of mocking the ones that bought at the peak why not congratulate those that are still up 500%+ when they bought before the peak? The market is still in its infancy. The s**t is hitting the fan for the entire global economy. Domains are nothing in the big picture. Hedge with bitcoin or another CC.
    Just saying.

    Steve – You need a pat on the back for being one of those who made money? Congratulations, you’re the man.

    Hundreds of others are left with a nice, deep hole in their pockets, not only because the market went to shit, but because some like you continued to hype the market as it went down.

    Congratulations again!

    I am not mocking those that purchased at a peak in the market. I am trying to suggest a “glass half full” approach rather than a “glass half empty”. The market will rebound and previous high’s will look like peanuts to the new highs. The Chinese market hasn’t even started yet. We have been seeing a small group of investors and individuals starting to “get” domains. In a few year 3l.cc’s and others at $500 will look like a bargain. Half full!!
    Cheers!
    p.s. buying any bitcoin??

    Steve – It doesn’t matter how you view the glass, it’s the quality of the wine that matters. In this case, it’s vinegar; those who bought believing the hype, are stuck with overvalued stock that won’t sell higher. The game of pump and dump isn’t new, it’s just that it manifested with domains, in a market full of inexperienced, gullible players.
