We have a few results from the first .NYC landrush auctions that closed today on Snapnames.com.
So first the disclaimers.
These numbers are unofficial.
These figures, did not come from the .NYC registry or Neustar the operator of the extension or SnapNames.com which held the auction. All these numbers came from bidders that may have won or lost landrush auctions.
All numbers are rounded off
Here are some of the winning bids according to some of those involved:
CarService.NYC was the highest domain name sale we had reported at $11,500.
Anyone who has spent some time in the city knows that Car Services are a very popular means of transportation especially for those that live outside of Manhattan.
Bitcoin.NYC was the 2nd highest domain sale we had reported to us with a winning big of $11k. I have no idea how Bitcoin has any special value in a .NYC extension but obviously more than 1 person did.
ForRent.NYC is over $9K
Homeinsurance.NYC sold for around $7,250
Facelift.NYC sold for around $6,750
Apartmentsforrent.NYC Around $5,500
Cannabis.NYC sold for around $4K
BTC.NYC sold for around $1,500
In all we know of more than 20 domain names that sold for $1k or more at the landrush auction.
The second of three .NYC land rush auctions rounds based off of the first letter of the domain name, kicks off tomorrow on October 28th and runs until October 31st.
