web3 NFT domains

and their purchasing reasons

We can call them web3 domains, NFT domains, cryptodomains, and blockchain domains, but they all mean the same thing: domains that can be bought and sold as NFTs, and that will provide the foundation for the emerging web3 very much like .com domains were the foundation of the original web1&2.

The data below shows every recent NFT domain sale above 1 ETH together with a few historic big sales thrown in for comparison’s sake. The data comes from the sales recorded on OpenSea (virtually the only place in which ENS and Unstoppable domains are effectively traded) and from the very useful bot created by Griffin (@griffds) that reports many of those sales.
You can also see the video version on YouTube.

$9,780bokononeth?11/11/20212.05$4,77071N/AnounBokonon' is a character in a Kurt Vonnegut novel (Cat's Cradle). This character is so poorly known that it being purchased for 'iconic' reasons is unlikely. But I couldn't find another rationale to the purchase and nothing could be found out about the buyer.
$4,796christianmartineth?11/09/20211$4,796152N/AnounIt appears it's a celebrity name because the buyer instantly put it up for sale for 10 eth — but can't find a celebrity who is worth investing a whole 1 eth for the filp attempt
$6,781adaneth?11/02/20211.5$4,52041N/AnounAdan is a first name in Spanish but it's not clear that this is the reason
$23,242jingeth?10/17/20216$3,87441N/AnounNo available evidence if it was purchase because it's a surname or because of it being an iconic word in Chinese.
$31,006swisslaweth?10/12/20218.88$3,49282N/AnounToo expensive for today's market. Purchase seems strange. Could be commercial intent. Owner also bought lawschool.eth for 0.55 ETH and lawpay.eth for 0.15 ETH.

$3,525thedigitaleth?09/08/20211$3,525102N/AnounToo expensive for 'iconic.' 'Digital.eth' could sell for that price but 'thedigital.eth' it's too weak a name — it must have another reason to having sold for that price.
$3,937merkabaeth?09/04/20211$3,93771N/AnounIt has a record pointing to twitter user: @Mongols_Trading but probably that's just the previous owner as it's OpenSea account was also called Mongols Trading.
$3,918mammotheth?09/04/20211$3,91871NOnounProbably bought by somebody bought Mike Gowen (MikeGowen.eth and MikeG.eth also on their wallet) but not clear why they paid that amount for mammoth (not a ENS investor, not an NFT collector (apparently), not a supericonic word for 1eth, not used as a nickname...)
