First 7-Figure Sale Reported Since August + Two at $500,000 Headline DNJ's Latest Top 20 Chart

It seems appropriate that in our last bi-weekly domain sales report before Christmas, Santa delivered the gift we have been hoping to see for several months now - more high end domain sales! He even came through with the first publicly reported 7-figure domain sale since August - a $1,160,235 sale of Ballet.com that crowns our latest all extension Top 20 Sales Chart. The domain, purchased by a crypto company in a deal brokered by Puneet Agarwal, also earned a spot in the top ten (at #9) on our year-to-date Top 100 Sales Chart.

Thanks to Sedo, we also got to unwrap a pair of half-million sales that sent twins Rebate.com and Rebates.com into the top 20 sales reported year to date. 

The next three spots on the the new chart were all filled by big ccTLD sales, including two more that soared into six figures - Sedo's $128,400 sale of EV.fr and WebInvest.it's $117,700 sale of Alberghi.it ("hotels" in Italian). Both of those rank among the five biggest country code sales reported so far this year (the ccTLD YTD Top 100 is the second chart on the page linked to). 

Right behind those blockbusters, at #6 on the Big Board, is a $79,444 sale of Bling.io via Efty.com. That wasn't the end of the good news for country code domains either. They went on to pile up seven chart entries overall, including two more in the top ten - #8 Scalar.de at $26,750 and # Game.co at $21,486. Sedo, who has long dominated the ccTLD aftermarket, accounted for all of the country code sales except Alberghi.it. 

The non .com gTLDs were limited to one chart entry, a solid $40,888 sale of a nice one-letter new gTLD - A.game - that also closed through Sedo.

Everything else went to the .coms as they swept 14 of the 22 entries overall (the extra spots resulted from a three-way tie for the final position). Sedo again did the heavy lifting in this category with an assist from Dynadot who booked the $15,000 sale of Grinta.com that shared the #13 slot with Aloshop.com

Here is how the leaders stacked up for the two weeks ending ending Sunday, December 11, 2022:
