nTLDs in crisis

The registration numbers for the new domains are strongly declining.
Minus 6 million in only 5 months, see: https://ntldstats.com/

What do you think: can .tel outperform those domains?

After spring "amendment" TEL had lost all its former virtues and became one of these NewTDL. So I see no reasons to differ its destiny from destiny of all these nTDLs. They all, TEL including, are equally useless. Because of that they should bankrupt sooner or later.

This is not well thought out!

A lot are useless, but some are really great (as example .online, .shop and .web)

The Chinese market was toxic for the nTLD and selling domains for cents did not helped them, creating inflated numbers and false expectations. Now we are returning to more normal and real numbers.

I think non-performing extensions will be purchased from larger registries and will survive.

.tel by now is an extension like another. It lost his uniqueness.

I think it will still lose users, I see many .tel domains once developed and now with the landing page of Telnames, domains that sooner or later will be let go down. However, .tel should not fall under the seventy thousand domains registered, in my opinion

For curiosity, the nTLDs registered in my city:

spaccio-pannolini-pillo.business.site   (sells diapers)
gotha.red   (luxury shop)
ilbasilico.menu    (restaurant)
mconline.host   (web agency - hosting service)
towanda.bio   (tree care)
albenga.ovh    (mine)
salea.ovh    (mine)
albenga.city    (by Digitaltown)
albenga.cloud    (mine)
alvenga.directory    (mine)
albenga.gdn    (mine - I will keep it until the renewal is 1-2 euros)
albenga.ONLINE   (mine)

The .tels registered here:

ragioniere.tel   (accountant - developed before march, now undeveloped)
albenga.tel    (mine)
salea.tel    (mine - I'll let it go)
commercialista.tel    (fiscal expert - developed before march, now undeveloped)
softimax.tel    (web agency)
silvano-garello.tel    (was mine, I dropped, but still alive)
liguria.tel     (mine - was developed, now no more)
ligury.tel     (mine - was developed, now no more- I will drop)
358.tel     (mine)
newsletter.tel     (mine)

However the king here is .it
