Chinese domain name investment made simple for Cryptocoin investors

I am active in Chinese domain investment as well as Cryptocoin investment alike. We have Whatsapp groups for both. I influenced many domain investors to start Cryptocoin investing but the vice versa was not very easy. The problem is that the Cryptocoin investors are not really able to understand what this opportunity is. Knowing this will help you in troubled times as both these investments are digital in form.

Remember each market has a bull-bear cycle. It cannot always be a bull cycle.  The bears will come. Crypto is having a bull cycle where Chinese domains have tested the bottom.

You could use Chinese domains as a hedge or even make pure profit as an alternative investment method. I am trying to explain the basics of Chinese domains investment in Crypto terms. It is actually very simple if you follow along!

Look at the table below.

The first column is Niche aka different types of domain name categories. In Crypto terms, let’s call them Coins. N = Number. L = Letter.  So, when you are investing in a niche (coin) you are buying a domain name (1 coin unit) that belongs to that category. Each niche (Coin) has a price attached to its one unit. This price is tracked, centralized, and displayed in different websites just like crypto currency tickers in Poloniex, Bittrex etc.

The price goes up or down as per demand and supply equations just like cryptocoins. To track prices over a period in each niche (coin) there are graphs, just like cryptocurrency charts.

Why Chinese domains?

  • It is one of the sought after investment method for Chinese. These have an intrinsic value and are traded like stocks. Nonchinese can benefit by joining.
  • It is digital, requires no paperwork.
  • You can carry your asset along.
  • No risk of losing the assets because you can never lose your domain as these are centralized by domain name governing bodies.
  • Just one domain name can be used to park a 5-6 figure USD value.
  • Highly liquid.
  • Limited supply for each niche (Coin)
  • Huge growth of internet adoption in China and real use case to develop these domains

Similarities with Crypto investment:

  1. Digital
  2. No paperwork

Unlike Crypto investment:

  1. Depends on China.
  2. Needs yearly maintenance fee per domain (per unit of your Coin).
  3. Not susceptible to hack, loss of asset.
  4. Can’t buy fractions of 1 unit of a coin.

Where do you buy and sell these domains?

Just like Poloniex, Bittrex etc. we do have websites like NameJet, Pheenix, 4.cn etc.
