You have listed only small "fish". The fattest catch came in 2004-2009. Here's an example - It sold for 47.9 million and for 30.9 million. I will say more - there is also a VIP segment, which has almost a hundred, and some more 100 millions of dollars for the site - (348 million !!!!).
Unfortunately or fortunately, but now there are no such sales. There were about 8 sales in 2022 and they did not go beyond $2 million. My favorite site is, which was sold for 1.5 million.

And what about this year's sales? Were there fat cats? This topic is very interesting for statistics, because 2018-2022 brought a lot of "miracle" and "joy", well, it's clear that it's in a bad way. I know about a fairly large sale - for 15 million and for 10 million. With NFT, everything is clear - those who are engaged in commercial activities on the Internet could not help but hear about it, but were there any other big sales?
