For reference, to the morons who fail to see value in domainnames, Bitcoin.de and Bitcoins.de, sold for €14,875 ($21,420) earlier this year. US is a larger market (at least for now). Personally i consider 25k as a reasonable price for the .us.

Mind to post your sources ?

So the fact that I own bitcoingeek.com and have just had a blank wordpress install sitting on it is either very dumb or very smart, depending on whether I understood its worth?

Worth is estimated by the consumers. The worth of this domain was bestowed upon it by the first bidder. Seeing has there has been no other bids; that could cap off this domains worth.
If by some remarkable chance that totally not-made-up $25k bid falls through, you might try starting a bit lower next time.  And maybe accepting Bitcoins instead of only USD?

Quote
But value fluctuates as popularity rises. People tend to flock towards familiar names. Familiarity is key in this consumer market. Especially with computer illiterates flooding the market.
LOL yeah there's nothing more familiar to most people than .us domains.  After .com, .org, .net, .biz and .co.uk, it's always the first thing I go to.

No need for the snarky cynicism. But please go on.
Yes, I'm being a bit snarky, but come on:  you're trying to rip someone off and trick them into paying WAY too much for a domain name you squatted on with a made-up story of a huge cash offer.  Who do you think you're fooling?

Even if the story was made up. This would be the correct price it is worth. It has the name bitcoin in it. And I based my price off the price of bitcoin.de. Just because you can't afford it, doesn't mean its a rip off.

IMHO, bitcoin.de (assuming you can trust sedo's price quotes anyway) is a great name for a Bitcoin exchange native to Germany - having the plural to grab typos as well is just a bonus.

Dot-US? Not so much. When I see .us domain names, unless it's something cute like min.us, all I think of is that the person was too cheap to spring for a .com. For the USA, .com is king - .us is just a half-arse attempt at the USA pretending they don't own the majority of the DNS infrastructure.

If you've got an offer for $25k USD, take it.

The only person a domain name is valuable to, is an SEO.

As they understand that there IS value in the domain name, but that value is only there if you set shit up right to make sure you get your money from the SERPS.  Buying a domain name that specific without those intentions is pretty damn retarded, all the extra SEO work could be used to make a site with better content.

As though SEO's care about content though lol

Huh what? SEO is an acronym for Search Engine Optimization, it's not a person. A webmaster doing SEO on their website will however value such steps to get a good ranking in search engines (like a tld with 'bitcoin' in it).

SEO isn't easy, you'll have to edit a lot of your content to make it include your targeted keywords. I do have a website ranked 11th in a keyword with a 200k search volume / month, but that's as far as I'm willing to take it. LOL.

SEO Is also a job type, "Search Engine Optimizer", I can assure you a million percent that is a real job and real job title Wink

Every person should do proper "SEO" work on their sites initially, but I am gearing my response more toward the people that would care that much over such a domain name, they better be putting that extra worth in to get the value out of that domain.

Also, you need to start going for number one with terms Smiley   Only go for number 1, or honestly don't try (I know this is a general statement, there is obviously enough terms out there worth grabbing for almost any spot, but I like to think bigger).

My bad, I thought you meant Search Engine Optimization, didn't know it could go both ways with the 'O'. It would be stupid having bought bitcoin.us with no intention of doing any SEO.

This!   Which though I know the value of the Bitcoin.us domain, here in the general Bitcoin Discussion forum, I assure you the percent of people that browse here that would know how to set it up just decently has to be in the single digits.   I truly believe someone with that much extra cash would buy it thinking that the name within the domain itself is enough to rank better than a site with the same type, but better content.

LOL @ people that see no value in domains.  HAHAHA.

Domains are how I make a living.  I don't own any .us as it's too localized and too regulated by the US Gov. as it is their ccTLD.  They can shut down or revoke the domain any time they like.  Which is why I generally stay away from .us.  Don't have any.  Won't have any.

LOL @ people that call domain investors squatters.

Gee, I really like that land on the beach that no one is building on.  How come I can't have it?  Because someone else invested in it first.  A true generic domain has value no matter what.  It's the exact same as holding land in the best location for your store, only online.  "Location, location, location."  People will remember it.  People will come back.  And people will type the domain in their browsers.

And it's value is not limited to SEO.  Corporations see huge positives in owning a generic domains.  They pay millions for them.  Not only will they dominate the SERPS but their consumers will easily remember how to come back.

But this domain is not worth 25k.  Maybe 2 to 4k.  Sorry.

Oh, this isn't an appraisal thread?

Here's a link to comb over for this years domain sales.

I just wanted to add a thought.  This will bring you a whole new class of investors with deep pockets and are websavvy with business online. You make a large sale for a bitcoin domain in BTC.  Just make sure you publish it in the above link.  Have Ron who runs DNJ post the BTC total and the dollar equivalent at the time of sale.  They will FLOCK to bitcoin in droves.

With the big Bitcoin.de sales earlier referenced in this thread and on my above link.  It will get press.
