  3. I’ve just discovered an interesting and professional CHINESE .XYZ website ! The Tianjin International Chinese College uses as their website:

    I think that like the domain can be used as a CHINESE domain marketplace especially for XYZ domains when this extension becomes official in CHINA.
    Or a .XYZ register in China

  4. this is pretty insane.

  5. is a good one for sure with the move for .xyz in China and the lucky number & short. Thought it could go as high as $100K when it was announced to be on auction but everything seems to have waited until the last 1-2 days of action & lots of action it is.

  6. Very Interesting to watch !!!!!!!!!! Auction closed at $81,919 USD

  7. If it’s a domain investor getting this domain ( I can’t see how he will ever sell it at a profit. The average sale price of a .xyz was around 1/5000th of an identical .com based on my observations of current and previous sales of both extensions. The sale of will boost this number a bit of course but in the end most .xyz domains with premium keywords usually do not fetch more than $100-200 USD.

  8. Elen you are dead on! Smart chick we have here folks…she sees right past the BULLSHIT of numbers with junk extensions….great call Elen!

  9. 8 xyz is pure hype and after effect of alphabet sale.
    i bet it has to do with silicon valley show, where they had xyz as top secret accelerator (hully xyz). I am pretty sure, Serge or some other top hancho thought it would be cool to do just that.
