I've been dropping about a third of my portfolio, and putting that money into cryptocurrency, instead.

I noticed. You could have sold a few of those on the forum as they were sucked up pretty quick.

So, one risky investment to the next? Sounds good to me.

I picked up a few شبكة. I like the extension personally, which I can't say for most of the other new gTLDs.

Same. It's a pity the crypto market has tanked (for the time being at least). But a good opportunity for newcomers to get in (just a friendly tip, which you should consider at your own risk).

Re: Anyone registering the new gTLDs?

I would strongly advise against anyone investing in Kleptocurrencies.

To use the term currency for something which patently is not in any accepted meaning of the Word as understood by currency professional is an abomination in itself.

The mere fact they have limited numbers and can be traded without fees does not in my opinion elevate them about Player's Cigarette Cards. In fact they are much worse because the Player's cards are definitely collectables whereas sequences of computer code are not. If they were were people would be registering punycode names without caring what the Unicode version was.

I'm actually waiting for it to tank. It wasn't that long ago (relatively speaking) that you could buy btc for less than $100. I'm not referring to the mtgox mess either.

Seems like a lot of people are expecting a big drop in the middle of the month. Something to do with Chinese banks. Admittedly, I read this in passing so perhaps I have no idea what I am talking about.

Re: Anyone registering the new gTLDs?

I plan on keeping my better IDNs, but making a few bucks, with the Cryptos, so its been good for me. It could drop like a rock eventually, but theirs a boatload of new people starting with it everyday, at the moment, and prices are climbing steady for Altcoin.
Yesterday, I saw one climb 7,000 percent in a 24 hour period, and one today, at over 2,300, everyday many will go up and down, but seeing 100 percent climb in a day, is ordinary. Pretty good margins, I believe. I'll take some of that action, at the moment. It might end up tanking, down the road...but, I keep hearing the regular economic system is going to blowup, in 2015...so we'll see how it goes.

China likes to ban things it can't regulate - what else is new?

I do not really care about crypto to be honest. If some of them become currency I'll just use them as currency. From what I could gather, most of the BTC trading volume is Chinese moving money abroad. + The IRS decided every BTC transaction on US soil would result in a cap gain/loss. Not ideal conditions for the growth of BTC in my opinion.

Re: Anyone registering the new gTLDs?

If you are letting domains drop, you might consider listing them for sale for $1 at the Dynadot Marketplace, and letting people here know. Some benefits:

1) $0.95 Dynadot credit (which is what you get if someone buys the domain) is better than nothing.
2) You are helping out your fellow forum members by saving them the trouble of monitoring drop lists and participating in snapname auctions.
3) You get an idea of which of your dropping domains are of interest to other domainers, which might help you decide which of your remaining domains to drop or keep.
