We’re all talking about Chinese domain investors these days, and now the story has gone mainstream.
In an article published on TechCrunch, China Is Making Domain Name History, longtime domain investor and consultant Alan Dunn laid out the details on where prices have gone and how the domain market has changed. He put some hard numbers behind the trends, including the stat that over 20% of two letter domains are now in Chinese hands.
I noticed the trend at NameJet where four letter domains were selling to Chinese buyers for what seemed like unusually high prices:
What made these sales even more interesting is that Chinese bidders were not just winning, but usually in the top three bidders going against one another.
I’m not sure what is in store for 2016, but the amount of money flowing into the domain market right now could break all the records.
