    I think there is a lot of downward pressure on Chinese domains. Have heard lots of talk about LLL.com trading at very low levels in quiet sales lately.

    Yes, from what I understand the buyers/sellers don’t want the prices publicly known.

    If you are still holding some you don't want to bring the prices down on the rest of your names.

    I see that Louise/Com went for $15,000 via Sedo, seems quite cheap for a popular first name

    Sounds like the Chinese are getting desperate, multiple failed auction attempts to sell 2,600 5 number .coms.

    Hey Vaccine's not cheap ($25,000 on the dark web) This was ambitious to say the least. If you flood a market there can only be cheapy's on offer

    This one is from Namescon (January) but likely got paid for very slowly. I think half the sales total from that auction didn't happen with Add.com looking like it was shilled up.

    Interesting to see 1269/Com went for $40,500 via Sedo, this is closer to what you would expect from a NNNN .. and not an 8 to be seen anywhere!

    No fours or zeros helps too.

    Yes I do agree but normally an 8 would surpass a 4, zeros are ok if at the end. 84 and 48 are considered good number combinations, this is domaining so ....
