Guta.com Launches New Quarterly Report on Premium Domain Sales

Guta.com, a domain brokerage firm that has gained fame as a bridge between the Western and Chinese domain communities, has just launched a new quarterly Premium Domain Sales Observation Report that will be of interest to anyone interested is selling to (or buying from) the Chinese market. Bilingual Guta Founder & CEO George Hong maintains homes and offices in both the U.S. and China which has put him and his staff in the middle of many high end sales between and within the two nations. 

Guta's first report breaks down sales of premium domains (with a primary focus on those containing 1-4 numbers or 1-3 letters) that Guta observed in the just completed 3rd quarter of 2018. The report includes individual domain names and prices paid if not subject to a non-disclosure agreement. Here are just a few interesting notes from the initial Guta report:

  • Nearly 50% of rare 2-letter .com sales went to blockchain or cryptocurrency related end users.

  • While there is always a demand for 3-letter .coms, wholesale prices paid by Chinese buyers declined while prices for short numeric domains remained stable.

  • Most 3-letter .coms were purchased by domain investors. Only about 1/6th of them went purchased by end users.

  • The buying spree from crypto companies seemed to slow in Q3-2018 - likely because the crypto market itself has been in a bear market in recent months. 

You can access the full free report here. It is also accessible through the Guta.com blog.
