Q4 2019 LXDO Liquid Domain Report

Giuseppe Graziano of GGRG brokerage published the LXDO quarterly report covering the short (liquid) domain name market in the last quarter. According to the LXDO website, “The objective of the report is to present key statistics and generate a debate amongst the industry stakeholders about the fair value of such domains.” The LXDO report is created with the help of Escrow.com and Intelium.

The report covers 614,928 .com domain names, including 2 – 4 letter .com domain names, 2-5 number .com domain names, and 2-3 character (letter + number combos) .com domain names.

The report presents information gleaned from a variety of sources. In addition, Escrow.com also shares an overview of sales information without details about specific sales. For instance, I believe Escrow.com may share an overview of all 3 letter .com domain name sales from the prior quarter, but it does not share information about which domain names changed hands or for how much money.

There are a few things to look at in the LXDO report. For one, you can click the individual categories at the top of the website to see how each type of domain name performed in Q4. For instance, when you click on the “2L” tab, you can see there were only 2 reported sales for a total price of $1.8 million.

On the bottom of the LXDO homepage, you can see how different liquid domain name types performed compared relative to other investments, including GoDaddy and Endurance stock, the NYSE and NASDAQ, and other types of investments. One thing that jumps out at me is the weaker performance of three letter .com domain names.
