sells for $20k and .us compared to new TLDs

Fits it to a T. Tadpole.com is short, clear, familiar, memorable, and meaningful. It’s easy to spell, hard to mishear; and (like many animal names) automatically triggers visual associations, which make the name nearly unforgettable. And it’s not just meaningful in the technical sense of being a word from the dictionary. It’s meaningful in the right way, since Tadpole.com symbolically says growth, youth, activity, change, and transformation. So, yes, it’s versatile enough to brand a computer company or just about anything else. But the brand name also has a very specific tone, which companies want to believe in and convey. It also comes with a pedigree, which I think adds to the value for whatever company eventually acquires the brand name. Even at $20k, Tadpole.com is bound to sell for a profit.
