So I came across an old post on Key-Systems.net that dealt with new gtlds.
The title of the article, “These 87 sites dropped their .com for a smarter new TLD (New data)” It was written in 2015.
The first thing of note was that there were only 52 names listed, with the number 51 being repeated twice.
So I took a look at each name to see who kept their new gtld, who switched and who closed up shop.
Dekora.fashion (dekoraconceptstore.com) out of business.
Parisfashionweek.buzz (parisfashionweek.com) site doesn’t resolve.
Risurisu.paris (risurisu.fr) Now risurisu-paris.com/fr/ So they not only gave up the cctld to a new gtld but now are .com.
