  1. So GTLD’s are in the hands of a potential monopoly now, looks like we knew what they were up to with .org

  2. Donuts INC is acquired by another private equity, the latter with the venture capital being very conducive to acquiring 7-figure domains and Ultra Premium from some of the best domain broker that will be in the Namescon online 2021

  3. They are going to raise renewal prices like there is no tomorrow.

  4. I do not understand the monopoly and the rise in renewal?
    The question would be how is it that Donuts Inc with the majority of gTLD extensions do not yet have them in their possession and must depend at this point on Private Equity Companies and the news is released a few days before Namescon online 2021
