  • Disagree that all these types of domains have “intrinsic value”.

    Domains that get traffic with a meaning particular to the respective domain, or domain having an actual meaning that can be advertised and immediately recognized as that exact product/service have intrinsic value. Otherwise domains don’t really have intrinsic value. What is the intrinsic value of FZGHK.com? Bitcoin also has no intrinsic value. There can be a scarcity value for them but not an intrinsic value.

    • 5L.com chips does not have intrinsic value. They are at the lower tier. Similarly 7n.com. You are right. But I am referring to better niches like 4L.com, 6n.com etc.

      Any 4L.com chips can be sold for 1300 USD to an investor. Any 6n.com chips can be sold for 55 USD as per today’s market price. Wouldn’t they fall into the category of domains that have intrinsic values?

  • It’s interesting, but I’ve noticed you guys are giving more attention, to LLLLL domains, which are incredibly speculative to the NNL/LNN/LLN/NLL market which is extremely liquid. I’m not sure you are giving an accurate summary to the new investor. I’ve seen a bias against these hybrid chips on your platform, but they are indeed a legitimate asset which is bought and sold in the 4 digits are up daily. Also you do not even mention LN/NL, which are among the most valuable Chinese interest assets. Perhaps it was just an oversight, but to ignore this popular and quickly growing niche within the Chinese market does not give an accurate or complete picture to those learning to invest in the Chinese domain name space. Currently even NNNL/LNNN, NNLL/LLNN are more valuable than 5 letter chips and in some cases 6 number chips that don’t have doubles.

    • We are not giving more attention to 5Ls. It is just that it is a recognized niche at the lower tier and it needs to be there. NNL/LNN/LLN/NLL belongs to CCC we already mentioned. You are right that we missed LN/NL. We shall add them. Anyways that’s a rare commodity. Was not ignoring purposefully. We have avoided CCCC. They are not liquid as a whole. But I can agree that some of them are valuable than 5L chips. Thanks for your views.

  • I will let my 5L’s drop in favor of keeping 5N’s
