Liquid market report Q2 2022: sales drop to $5.6M

Giuseppe Graziano from GGRG partnering with and Estibot’s parent company Intelium and published the 24th edition of the Liquid Domains Overview (LXDO), which focuses on the 614,928 .com domains we call “liquid”.

The objective of the report is to present key statistics and generate a debate amongst the industry stakeholders about the fair value of such domains.

Starting from this edition, they added the actual list of transactions for the top tier domains (2L, 3L, 2N, 3N, 4N, 2C) and an indicative sample of transactions (top, median and bottom 10 sales) for the lower tiers of the liquid market (4L, 5N, 3C).

Here are some highlights from the Q2 2022 report:

  • sales volume went down by 65%, from $16M to $5.6M.
  • Despite this, the disclosed sales as reported by went up by 185%, from $3.6M to $10.3M. This was mostly due to the sale, which took place in 2021, but was just republished because the payment plan completed.
  • As reported by Russell from ShortNames about the other categories: “*4L volume is up but prices are down a bit. Other categories seem to be pretty steady.*”
