The $88,000 reported sale of ranks as the joint fifth largest .IO sale of all time, according to NameBio. Interestingly, the top six .IO sales at NameBio have all happened in 2021. Schoen’s sale also breaks the dominance on the top five chart.

I acquired recently so this gives me some hope for it.
Great price for yet another huge .io sale. just proves again what a nice pickup that was. Was there much negotiation for that one?

I was after that one for years, made a number of incognito offers on it until I picked it up.

All in all I think I pursued that one for about 4 years, which is not uncommon for me.
I remember it took me just as long to get and I have a couple that took even longer to finally land.

I am nothing if not patient and persistent. *DANCE*
The .io extension is getting huge traction from tech and crypto companies, two areas that will have a lot of growth in future years imo. Good times ahead for .io most likely, especially one word and short acronyms.

a couple years ago I sold for mid x,xxx USD. since then whoever bought it never changed the Uni nameservers. I remember a few years ago when domainers were starting to accumulate .io, but prices were cheap and you probably could have bought a lot of great one word .io on the forums for xxx and low xxxx. They are pretty expensive to register and hold which probably keeps a lot of people from going all in.

Soon we might be comparing what a .ca is worth if the exact match .io sells for X, like we do with .com. lol
