Swetha.xyz Posts 2nd Straight 6-Figure DNJ Chart-Topper, #2 .GG Sale Just Misses 100K Mark

After topping out last bi-weekly all extension Top 20 Sales Chart with Sino.xyz at $119,911 two weeks ago, Swetha Yenugula (Swetha.xyz) surpassed herself this time around the track. Swetha again took the checkered flag with an eye-popping $199,888 sale of Bull.xyz that was closed via Dan.com. That also ranks as the second highest non .com gTLD sale of the year to date (3rd chart on the page linked to), trailing only Braden Pollock's  $257,000 sale of Z.org back in January.

The #2 sale on the Big Board gave another non .com category, the ccTLDs, a big win. That was a $96,000 sale of Sports.gg by Logan Flatt at Media Code LLC. That is the 7th biggest country code sale so far in 2022 (the ccTLD YTD Top 100 is the second chart on this page). 

With Sedo's $33,000 sale of AN.net filling the #3 hole, the normally dominant .coms didn't make their first appearance until #4 where CheapUsedCars.com showed up at $25,000, also at Sedo. While the .coms got off to a slow start, they ended up in their usual position, holding a majority of the chart entries overall. In this case 13 out of 21 (including the two that tied for #20 to create an extra position). Alex Verdea helped the .com cause with his $20,000 sale of #5 (tie) UseBloom.com made through Dan.com.

The ccTLDs had a good outing too, piling up six chart entries, including two that joined Sports.gg on the top half of the leader board. Those were Sedo's sales of #7 Sowieso.de at $19,800 and Parrot.co at $14,375

The non .com gTLDs lone entries on the elite list were the two already mentioned - Bull.xyz and AN.net - but it is always a good week when your category can claim two of the three highest reported sales. 

As far as the overall direction of the market, we didn't have a lot to go on this time out since this was not a reporting week for the venues that send data monthly rather than weekly. Typically, we do see higher .com sales prices than these, which could be viewed as evidence that rising interest rates are making buyers think twice about purchases at the high end. However, with so many crosswinds still at work in the general economy I expect it will still be awhile before we have definitive answers on that.
