This month has certainly taken us for a ride. We entered May with the average 3 digit name costing about 8.91Ξ and the average 4 digit name costing about 1.44Ξ. The 3 digits names then reached an all time high for the month on May 8 at an average cost of 19.29Ξ while the 4 digit names reach their all time high on May 12 at an average cost of 2.35Ξ.
The effect of the Terra Luna crash on May 11 was immediately felt by 3 digit name owners when the average cost dropped from 12.17Ξ on May 10 to 8.19Ξ on the day of the crash. It then stayed under 9Ξ until May 15 when it climbed back up to 11.17Ξ. The price went down to 9.06Ξ the next day and then 8.27Ξ the day after, but went back up to 11.95Ξ on May 18. It dropped to its lowest point for the month on May 19 at 6.6Ξ.
On the other hand, the effect on 4 digit names was slightly delayed. From an average cost of 1.7Ξ on May 10, it only went down to 1.31Ξ on the day of the crash. However, it quickly bounced back the next day to a whopping 2.35Ξ. It was on May 13, two days after the crash, that the average price dropped down to a depressing 1.19Ξ.
So for all you digit name enthusiasts out there, we’ve got a digit category on ENSdom just for you. It’s the place to post your numerical names. It doesn’t matter how long they are. Whether they’re 3 digits long or 7 digits long, all digit names are welcome.
We’re pleased to announce that ENSdom now has an emoji category for names with emojis. You can now find names that are a mix of words and emojis and names that only consist of emojis. Feel free to add any ENS name you have with emojis to ENSdom!
Twitter ENS clubs
Now, for those of you who want to meet like-minded ENS collectors, there’s a club for each type of name. You can think of these clubs as communities of people who basically like to collect the same type of ENS name. There are clubs for almost every type of name out there e.g. 3 digit names, 4 digit names, palindromes, Pokemon names, emoji only names, etc. You can join the clubs for the types of names you have or plan to acquire.
