Extract: "I can tell you I have personal knowledge of one new gTLD selling for in a private auction for just short of $20M and there has been a lot of speculation of how much .Blog sold for last week in a private auction with guess ranging from around $25 Million to $30 Million. Unlike private auctions, the results of ICANN Last Resort Auctions are public, so we will know exactly the amount paid for .APP, even how many applicants dropped out at certain amounts along the way.".
Domainers register their domain names with Uniregistry.
A message to frustrated ".com" domainers.
Lesson 1: I do not buy ".com" domain names;
Lesson 2: if you work in the domain name business, you use a domain name ending in ".domains", not ".com";
Lesson 3: I only answer emails ending in ".email", other endings won't be read;
Lesson 4: in regard to domaining, I only visit websites ending in ".domains";
Lesson 5: all this is a joke, I don't buy domain names ;-)
