Rightside published a list of their New gTLD domain name sales.
They released a full list of every five- and six-figure direct Platinum domain sale they are allowed to publish. Just a few of these have been publicly revealed until now. This includes the sale of Video.games which was sold in February for $183,000—their biggest Platinum sale to date, and the second largest in the entire new gTLD program behind casino.online that sold for $201,250.
Some of the previously reported sales are sex.live and porn.live that each sold for 6 figures.
Rightside’s Premium/Platinum sales amounted to $3.4 million last year, gaining $800,000/year each year since they launched their first new gTLDs. The 53 Platinum Domain names in the list below had an average selling price of over $31,000, for a total of $1.7 million cash. The list excludes Day 1 EAP sales and seven-figures worth of Platinum Domains sales they are not able to publish at this time. What you see below is just over 60% of their complete $10k+ Platinum sales list, including five of Rightside’s top ten sales. These domains were sold to over 15 unique end users and investors, across 17 different TLDs.
Missing from the list is the sale of 3d.software that was sold for 6-figures and the sale of dui.attorney that also sold for 6-figures to a New York attorney. Other domains that the same attorney bought and are probably part of the list that was not disclosed are:

You can now find all these sales in the Sold.Domains database.
Never heard of “Rigthside” must be new! 😉
So much for the theory that no one wants or is willing to pay for gtld names.
Although these sales are good and encouraging, 15 buyers over 3 years is not something big.
The registries are now throwing the kitchen sink at trying to prop up the market.
