I get it, shorter names could be considered more accessible and therefore there’s a degree of clout in only having a 3 or 4 letter eth address, but in most cases is that really relevant? Apart from the common abbreviations, there are tons of shorter addresses that are waiting to be registered but the incremental pricing just simply due to their length is absurd.
You’re telling me if I put three random letters together “ujr.eth” that’s 0.16 ETH? Per year? In USD that’s $650/year compared to say “ohmygodness.eth” that costs 5(!) USD per year to register (or 0.001 ETH).
Sure, why don’t I just adapt one of those longer names and get on with it? Well, that’s subjective isn’t it? We all have personalized preferences, nicknames, words, brands we enjoy. Just because the one I want to register is three letters I have to pay 160x as much compared to someone with 11 letters?
It doesn’t really make that much sense to me.
