I still think emoji domains are a bad investment

My opinion hasn’t changed and here’s why. I’ve had a few people email to ask what I think about emoji domain names as an investment, especially after domain investor Gregg Ostrick paid $11,201 for ☯.com (Punycode: xn--w4h.com). My answer hasn’t changed since I wrote about this back in May: people are flushing money down the […]

Domain Shane Domain Shane: A comprehensive look at the final auction prices, closeouts and more from the auction list posted on September 24, 2017. 
If there is an asterisk (*) next to a price, it means that the name was at auction from a private seller (rather than an expiring name) and may have had a reserve.  I’m only showing where the price was when the auction ended, but the name may not have sold if a reserve was in place.

Domain Shane’s Daily List of Domains at Auction for Monday September 25th

Domain Shane Domain Shane:
Here’s what I don’t get.  If I ask you if you like a name and how much you think its worth you will give me an answer.   I have never been asked if its a private name or if its expiring.   Yet when it comes to auction the bidders HAVE to know.  But for some reason people think that dropping names are worth more because they are virgin gems.  Not whored out like a domain investor’s name. All of which is 100% false.  A name that expired could have hosted porn, been blacklisted, and have all kinds of negative history.  Most private names have been collecting dust waiting for an incoming bid.  I get that the auction houses list it for transparency.  What I don’t get is why people bid differently based on what type of name it is.  Feel free to comment but I have asked this question for 10 years and I have yet to hear an answer that makes any sense. Feel free to try  Here are today’s names, you have to click to see current price.
