This past week the following 3 Donuts New gTLDs entered general availability with EAP: .farm, .codes and .viajes. Also Sedo announced some .club domain name sales.
Some of the sales are difficult to find as a few domains don’t have nameserves and don’t appear in the zone files. Only sales over $1,000 are reported.
There was no domain name sold on the 1st and 2nd day of the EAP at the Donuts 3 New gTLD strings.

There were 2 domain names bought at about $1200 each in the third day of EAP.
hemp.farm (Someone from California bought this domain)
emu.farm (California based company primetesting.com bought this one)
Both corresponding .com domains are registered and none from the registrars that got the New gTLDs.
Sedo sold 10 .Club domains from $7,500 each and up to $13,750:
All domains were sold by the .Club registry.
Sedo also sold the domain name golf.academy for $2,000. The buyer is New Media Golf Corporation from Florida.
Finally the .Rich registry sold about 20 .rich domains at Sunrise for about $2,500 each such as microsoft.rich and citi.rich.
Some of the purchases above might be higher than reported if the domain name is labeled as premium. Premium registration/renewals start at $50 and go all the up to $1500 per year. Prices are approximate and depend on what each registrar charges on top of the registry fee.
