Well, the Chinese stock market (and most other stock markets around the world) tanked today. It will be interesting to see where it goes this year and if we can make any correlations to prices in the liquid domain market. Will Chinese investors pull their money from equities and plow it into domains as a “safe” haven? I don’t think a large segment of American stock market investors would do that. If it does happen in China, what does that say about Chinese investors vs. American investors? They are less risk averse? They are more tech savvy? There are way more of them so even a small segment of their investing population can make big moves in a small industry like domains? They have far fewer “safe” places to park their money? Maybe a combination of all of the above.
Most of the descriptions are easily understood, but just in case there are questions:
N = Numeric
I = Initial (a letter not including a,e,i,o,u,v)
C = Character (any number or letter)
