Giuseppe Graziano from GGRG partnering with Escrow.com and Estibot’s parent company Intelium and ShortNames.com published the 27th 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 Q1 2023 report:
- $43.2M in Escrow.com sales
- $7M in publicly reported sales
- Q1 2023 was an absolute record quarter. With over $43M in escrow.com reported sales, it eclipsed the now second best quarter (Q4 2021) which came during a peak stock and crypto market.
- The reason for the record quarter was an unusually high, 8 digits number in 2L .com ($15.7M) and 4L .com ($23.8M) sales volume, probably as the result of monster sales.
