Meta became a very popular and sought after keyword in 2021. Spurred on by Facebook branding to Meta and the promise of the Metaverse, thousands of registrations took place. Some Meta domain name registrations would make you scratch your head.
When it comes to just the exact keyword Meta + extension. There have been 22 such sales. Namebio records 21 of them they have not added Meta.cn acquired for $130,000 last October.
Nikul Sanghvi of Hypernames.co sold Meta.so for $149,000. He registered it in April of 2021 and sold it in October.
So far little has been done with all these sales.

With the majority of these names expiring and being caught at Sav.com or Catched it makes sense that the buyers were domain investors and not end users.
It will be interesting to see what is done with the big sales Meta.so, Meta.cn and Meta.io.
