Which are the successful new gTLDs?

Shall we ever know the truth about what's really happened during round one of the ICANN new gTLD program: why some applicants just "dropped it", how much a registry really earns, which new gTLD is a real "hit" and which is not?

There is a pace where you ask your questions, and it is here. I recommend the reading of "Learnings from the last 3 Years".
