    Honesty this is INSANE I know long time ago that active domain around the world are around 250 Millions domain .
    So I decide to do experience and try to register 3 letters domain using bulk search and surprise surprise all domain I search for were taken
    https://i.ibb.co/Mhx2YxX/Screenshot-2019-11-05-04-58-43.png
    on that search I select 30 popular TLDs and all are taken why and by who ? lets forgot about these TLDs a moment and lets do the mat on 3 letters .com domain on only English 26 characters
    3^26 = 2,541,865,828,000
    That's 2 trillions and 500 billion domain ! hallelujah I didn't need to add numbers or none English letters to the final number .
    So do you believe all these domain are really registered or just the domain registers don't allow you to register them before pay Premium price ?

    I think the math needs correction.
    It should be
    26^3 = 17576
    or 26 x 26 x 26 as there can be 26 possibilities for each position in a 3 character word.

    Please correct me know if I'm wrong. :)

    You are correct I did the opposite look like I was too tired and too late here . But If I did the odds off available TLD's ~30 we will got bit big number
    17576 × 30 = 527280
    Not all of them are registered but after my research I found ~90% of them are , + all of well known words from three letters are registered are premium

    As for .com domains, this has been the case for awhile now.

    The last 3L.com was registered in 2000 (usu.com just sold for $90K, eth.com for $2 million).

    The last 4L.com was registered in 2018 (sexe.com just sold for $233K, room.com for $1.5 million).

    Right now, we are working on 5L.com domain names, with slim pickings available (for example, gbolm.com).

    Liquid domains (2L.com, 3L.com, 2N.com, 3N.com, ACRO.com, etc.) are highly investible and represent the gold nuggets of the domain name industry.

    The entry of the Chinese into domain investing in recent years has seriously impacted the value and increased the rarity of liquid domains.

    Every day, I get several emails from Chinese investors wanting to buy my 3L and 4L .coms.

    very interesting. if we say that .com is already saturated, does the .co can become the next golden rush? (or started already...)

    Probably not. Many extensions over the years have been touted as the next gold rush, from .io to .co and everything in between (I lost my ass in .tv domains), but I don't think anything will come close to the hold that .com has, chiefly because of user familiarity and because tech defaults to .com for web browsers and now even mobile keyboards have the .com key. Also, now that the marketplace has been glutted with so many domain extensions, I honestly don't see it.
