Kassey Lee posted: First domain+trademark auction held July 20 on Taobao.com for general public. Event was organized by 22.cn and Alibaba group, and 20 sets of domain+trademark were sold, such as Yangmai.com, Ycd.com.cn, and Blogcn.cn. Details of trademark not publsihed.
Growth of 4i .com can be attributed to: (1) multiple meanings for end uers to choose, (2) price cheap enough for investors as well as end users to buy, when compared with 2i or 3i, and (3) still short enough to remember. 4i .com has a large market with over 10m of small companies.
4i .com rose from $900 (6,000 yuan) to over $1,140 (7,600 yuan) in last 30 days. Nine 4i .com sold on July 25 with average price $1412 (9415 yuan).
Quite a few .vip domain names developed into sites: 2kdy.vip (movie), Ttkdy.vip (movie), Ffys.vip (hot movie, tv), and Acgo.vip (Japanese animation). VIP implies quality and belonging to special group.

Of course, the perception that this event could occur may be just as powerful given that the bitcoin price is often driven by speculation, in both senses of the word.
