By scanning most of the recent .xyz sales I found this is mostly used by crypto and blockchain-related startups and companies.I think there is a good chance for XYZ to take hold as a secondary to .com — much like .net — now.
Two of the largest companies are using it. I think that we'll see a trend with Fortune 500s, and then regular folk, if it is within a reasonable price range compared to the .com.
I agree that most startups after a successful launch and securing enough dollars from investors jump and acquire exact product match .com (which ultimately make .com more valuable then any other .whatever tld)The extension has a real chance at becoming the new #2 to .com, especially because of google.
However, I still think ultimately you will see a lot of upgrades to .com if the company can afford it/ acquire the .com.
Having to say square.xyz is still quite a bit more cumbersome than saying square.com
This debate will probably go on forever but if I had to make a new business name I would rather make one up and use the .com than use the .xyz
MapleDots.xyz just does not carry as much weight as MapleDots.com
PS. All that said, if I can make money on one I will register it in a New York minute.
I agree with you, I myself sold .co, .tv and .org domain name because I hold these TLDs along with .COMI think every domainer must have not only .xyz but allot of different extensions to diversify the portfolio.
If to reg with .xyz then go for one words and unique 2 words.

I agree and I saw many even in 4 figure renewal.Hi
many one word .xyz domains have premium renewal pricing.
some are in 4 figure range
so, the registry is basically profiting off the registrant for life
