Covid 19 started to be a “thing” around mid January. At that time, I was still in Japan, and I remember friends and family in Europe being concerned about the spread of the virus in Asia. Being geographically close to China, Japan was one of the countries affected early by the virus.
The virus only got mainstream attention in February, and reached the peak (at least in impact on the stock market), around mid to late March. But how has Covid 19 impacted Liquid Domains?
By looking at the latest Liquid Domains Overview report we published today, here are a few considerations:
- The publicly disclosed sales have gone down 28% from last quarter, but the number has not changed significantly if we look at Q1 2019.
- 4L .com have taken a massive hits in terms of floor prices and median prices. The Q1 floor price for 4L was $86 and median price $315.
- 3L .com prices seems relatively stable, at $8.5k floor and median price going up 30% to $18.8k.
- 5N .com have suffered a massive hit in floor prices (-33%) to $260, although median prices do not seem to be affected (-1.17%).
- The Escrow.com total sales for the quarter remained stable at $85M, practically no change from Q1 2019.
