For the first time I can recall, there was a .IO domain name in auction at Park.IO that I was interested enough in buying that I was willing to pay 4 figures to buy it. The auction ended on Sunday, and I was a loser, despite bidding more than $1,000 for the domain name.
I shared this on Twitter, as I think it is important to show people I am not solely interested in buying .com domain names:
Thought I was going to win my first .IO domain name in auction yesterday at @io_domains. I bid over $1k but lost. Maybe next time.
