#Chinese investments : After #domains and #Bitcoin, #China is after #Greek real estate properties

Chinese investors moved away from LLLL .com domains, crashing the “Chips” market this year. Their apparent move onto other types of investments, such as cryptocurrency, heralded the end of the “domain as a wealth vessel” economy.

#HODL .com : #Domain owner ups his asking price in the middle of #crypto crisis

In December, we pointed out that the owner of the domain HODL.com wants half a million dollars. The term “HODL” is a typo of “hold,” indicating the mentality of cryptocurrency investors to hold onto their investments, as opposed to liquidating them in panic. The cryptocurrency market peaked at the end of 2017, briefly sustaining that […]

Final #Chinese #domain market report of 2017, as “Year of the Dog” lies ahead

It’s the final Chinese domain market report of the year, as we’re bidding farewell to 2017. China’s domain aftermarket for “coinage” domains, such as LLL.com and LLLL.com, remained relatively healthy, having survived a crappy 2016.

We’ve been tracking the rise, progress and demise of domain “Chips” for the past couple of years, and another negative milestone was reached recently.

Chinese domain market report : Selling ice to the Eskimo won’t work in China

There’s a reason why the old saying, “selling ice to the Eskimo” still holds plenty of cold water. Domain investors selling to each-other, especially when it’s a trade between buddies promoting auctions, can only get one that much money. The market gets saturated with the product and prices drop – simple as that. Gone are […]

Chips before chicks : Dot .Com and .Net report on LLLL domains

The world of domain Chips isn’t what it used to be. Four letter domains with letters that appeal to the Chinese – no vowels, no letter “V” – have seen much better days.
