I believe these are relevant news to this list


"IPv6 strategy made it into NDAA 2020, requiring DOD to sell 13 x /8s
(1) IN GENERAL.—Not later than 10 years after the date of the enactment of this Act, the Secretary of Defense shall sell all of the IPv4 addresses described in subsection (b) at fair market value."

Finally is happening.
I imagined that one day they would return something, but decided to sell. However, looking at the good side, this makes all this wasted space to become utilized.

A few questions that arise are: how will this selling process happen, if directly, through brokers, if there will be any mechanism to distribute this selling among each one of all 5 RIRs or if it will be opened in the model "first come, first served"

And before something says, I don't believe this will make any big difference to IPv6 implementation to advance or delay it significantly.
Even talking about more than 200 million IPv4 addresses, I don't think this will change much this scenario if they are put directly at end users disposition.

Finally, an important detail to highlight in the report is: "(D) The plan of the Secretary to transition all Department addresses to IPv6."

Let's see who will be the big buyers and how will this affect the IPv4 value for the next years.
