SquareUP rebrands to Block.xyz

The rebrand to an .xyz domain has caused some what of a stir among domainers, some view this extension to be inferior to other extensions like the .com or .io

This rebrand is certainly good news for the owner of Block.com whose traffic has rocketed due to the publicity and people hitting up the .com apposed to .xyz which is why it's important to own your .com in addition to other extensions. Brand perception and familiarity - people automatically presume big brands own the .com The rebrand however has also been a massive boost for .xyz extension as investors ears perk up!

Domain names as an investment class

Domain names are often over looked by so many "mainstream investors" who these days pay 6/7 figures for a cartoon monkey but don't see the value in owning what is the original NFT of the web, an IP name which can be turned into a global brand like Amazon.com or Facebook.com

Domain names are appreciating assets, balance sheet assets not P&L expense! just like a silly NFT cartoon monkey, domain names have value, but real life applicable value which can yield an extremely high ROI without even developing the name.

In a world turning digital, having a domain name portfolio as an asset should be more logical than spending money on an NFT cat!

Quick flip or long term either way the ROI can be substantial for example;

Quick flip: Bassir.io acquired PortfolioUSA.com for $9 sold it 14 days later for $7500 that's a yield of over 83233%

Long term yield: Floor.com (not mine) registered in 1995 for probably around $20 sold in 2009 for $275k then again in 2021 $3.14m
