The ICANN application fee was $185,000 but the registration is over for now.  The implementation phase is underway which is why you see new domain endings popping up.  http://newgtlds.icann.org/en/about/program

This doesn't use ICANN, it uses Public Root, which is now implemented in most ISPs, so it doesn't really make a difference for the end user.

Most ISP's do not implement alternative root systems.  They have been around for years and they have never taken off so far.  You have to get users to switch their DNS settings which is a huge difference.  Not impossible, New.net tried it a number of years ago (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/New.net).  Now many ending would clash with ICANN root so an ISP can't implement it without resolving collisions.

Neither of these TLDs have been registered with ICANN, so no clashing, yet as for having to change DNS settings, that's what you get for paying 185 times less...

No, it's not a scam. They just use different DNS servers than other ISPs.

I want to create .crypto and .coin domains (I have friends in high places), but I don't have enough money to cover the registration fee.

I need $2000 USD total to create these, and anyone who helps will get a percentage of my REVENUE once I start selling these domain names!
Donate here then post in the thread: 1AK5Sa686Fu19nyuyABvTmi96RMnYwbvkn

P.S. I have these running in the process of registration, so there's no way I'll lose these domains, but if you're interested you should still act FAST!

EVERY SATOSHI HELPS!!!
If you are really making this happen then $2k isn't a big issue I guess.These domains are gonna make a good earnings in such wellness going on around Bitcoin

No, it's not a scam. They just use different DNS servers than other ISPs.

It is the same as Namecoin and .bit, users need to update the DNS settings.  You should go for the ICANN .coin and raise the $185K.  But still, you have to sell a lot of domains just to break even by the time you pay the application fee, legal fees and setting up the registry.

I would start a Kickstarter campaign or something, but then a wealthy investor would beat me to it if he saw that it was possible to do that. ICANN gTLD applications are closed anyway, so this is the next best thing.

Seriously?

No one wants to give .coin a chance?
