IDN breakthrough or massive Scam?

Yes, you have guessed it we are back at Sedo.

The domain in question is póker.de

Not actually a phishing domain as this spelling appears to be good for Hungarian.

But is even a good keyword in Hungarian going to be worth an opening bid of $50K in a dot de, extension. Is this legitimate, or a hustle, and do Sedo even care?

Re: IDN breakthrough or massive Scam?

Hungarian poker must be very popular in Germany. Or maybe Germany is home to a lot of Hungarian poker players? :P

And that is precisely why it will get worse. Capital flight is often caused by the expectation that a currency will fall. The more people protect their positions the worse it gets. About the only thing the defending country can do is sell its precious foreign currency reserves. Of course people will say that it cannot happen to the dollar, and that is probably still the expectation for many. The problem is that carrying on in state of denial makes the required correction finally much more severe.

If you are using the Paypal bank a/c you'll get a shock when you try to withdraw, they give you the worst rate in town.
