The "market rate", absent lots and lots of trading where prices for
trades can be seen and thus affect future trades, is whatever someone
will pay for it. I don't thing there is a market in that sense just yet,
but one is certainly building.

What's interesting for me in the above quote (and don't get me wrong,
Joseph, I am not having a go at you) is the tone: "I have what you need
and you'll buy on my terms". The terms suggested might have been imposed
on Joseph by the actual seller, or they might be "tough talk" designed
to soften up potential buyers before they even enter negotiations. Or
they might be an indication that previous buyers have been so desperate,
the Joseph now feels he can impose such terms with impunity.

I would love to know what Joseph ends up getting for the space :-)

If those are offers, and not prices paid, then it rather suggests that
you are holding out for a higher price, which rather suggests that you
think you might get one :-)

All of the above is purest speculation from someone not involved in the
IPv4 address market at all, of course.
