    So a pretty strange article hit the news today. The article states that traditional domains have stagnated and a new class of domains, “blockchain domains” are going to take over.

    Some companies in the .com era may have succeeded largely due to their domain and its primacy in search results. Today, this market has become stagnant, but innovation is popping up in a new area  — blockchain domains. (Source – InvestInBlockchain.com)

    Uh…I’m not sure this guy knows that millions of dollars in domain names sell every week, and more domains sell now than did back in the “.com era” since that was referring to early Internet startups…not domains as an asset class.

    The article continues by complaining that it’s impossible to get a new domain extension. This is just bizarrely misinformed since ICANN has approved over 1,000 new domain extensions, some of which are still hitting the market, like .DEV which launched last month.
