In 2023, artificial intelligence brought new opportunities to the domain industry. Originally just a domain extension for the Anguilla island, .AI has now gained prominence among new top-level domains. For .AI, this was a crucial year, with annual publicly disclosed transaction sales reaching $5.5 million.

In 2021, the transaction volume was $1.2 million, and in 2022, .AI domain sales were less than $1 million. However, in 2023, it surged to $5.5 million. Some believe that it has the potential to exceed $10 million in 2024, demonstrating the significant market potential of .AI domains.
