Another official round of releasing reserved .ME domain names (188 in total) has just fade out at Sedo. The auctions ran for a week. As of an hour before the deadline there were about $65k of bids (half of that of the previous auction). Throughout the game, air.me was the front runner though it was speedily taken over in the final battle by cruise.me.
Naturally most of the show happened during the last minutes and two hours past the deadline. About 30 auctions were still running 10 minutes after the deadline, as new bids prolonged them. The final take from the auction was $173,439 or about $985 per domain name. This was much lower than last December and not even close, yet still okay, when comparing the greatest .ME registry sale last year. Despite the quality of keyword names - they did well.
Cruise.Me came as the winner the race ($28.5k). It was followed by air.me ($10k). Only those two crossed $10k line. The other names stayed in four digit positions.
Present.Me, which was acquired on premium auctions about year and a half ago, is simple, yet powerful and probably the most convenient online service when it comes to giving an online presentation allowing to combine (and to synchronise) both slides and videos:
