Share Article

Elvis Daniel Velea, V4 Escrow CEO, noted IPv4 address transfer expert, and Washington Post Contributor, will speak at the upcoming ARIN 35 Public Policy and Members Meeting event in San Francisco, CA, running from Sunday, April 12th through Wednesday, April 15th. In anticipation of that event, he shares a number of predictions about how the IP address transfer market will continue to develop in 2015.

Customized strategies and services to execute all IP related needs

V4Escrow, under the guidance of Elvis Daniel Velea, has proven to be the leading market source for IP address information, pricing, and technical expertise.

As ARIN 35 prepares to unfold, V4Escrow’s Elvis Daniel Velea will make his first North American appearance as an expert speaker and IP market forecaster, sharing facts, processes, and guidance as one of the world’s premiere IP address transfer brokers. His insight into this dynamic and lucrative market is unparalleled, exemplified by his spot-on prediction regarding the market’s overall growth in 2014. Not to be outdone this year, Mr. Velea has a number of predictions ranging from rapid regional development in 2015 to the growth in individual IP address unit prices.

First, with the latest announcement that the RIPE NCC has accepted a policy change enabling RIR (‘Regional Internet Registry’) transfers between itself and other regions, within the next 6 months, the RIPE region will be able to conduct full IPv4 address transfers with the APNIC and ARIN regions. Mr. Velea predicts that this development will trigger a massive influx of address transfer sales originating from U.S. companies within the ARIN region to Middle Eastern buyers within the RIPE NCC.

A recent Washington Post article, also featuring Mr. Velea’s expert opinion, details how IP address transfers are necessary for Middle Eastern countries such as Iran, Saudi Arabia, and the United Arab Emirates to rapidly grow their online connectivity infrastructure. Mr. Velea predicts that this policy change will likely drive significant sales between RIPE and ARIN.

Second, this new policy adoption will drive up prices of ARIN-based addresses, while simultaneously offering a market-clearing stabilization subsequent to the price increase. Within the ARIN region, the average per unit price of a transferred IP address has fallen from a height of $11.25 in 2011 to a range of $6 to $8 in 2014. However, with the expected demand from Middle Eastern governments and companies inevitably affecting pricing, Mr. Velea expects that the minimum per unit price of ARIN-originated addresses will rise to a range of $10 to $12.

Furthermore, the increased demand will keep the higher prices stable with relatively minor fluctuations. Overall, Mr. Velea predicts that more than four /8s (‘slash eights’) will be transferred globally by the end of 2015. These predictions are only the tip of the iceberg in regards to Mr. Velea’s thoughts on the overall market. He will be sharing his experiences and lessons learned from conducting address transfers during the “Transfer Experience Panel” at ARIN 35.
