Another Numeric Sale at 4.cn

 8881888.com sold for 889 RMB ($136 USD) with 33 bids today.

On tap for tomorrow?

8882888.com is currently selling for 200 RMB ($30 USD), as is 8883888.com. 

For anybody that is wondering why these strings of numbers are valuable, the answer is China.  Chinese culture values numbers, and "8" is the luckiest number.  Many of the top Chinese websites are pure numeric domain names, and Chinese domainers have been aggressively buying numerical domains, especially those with lots of "8"'s in them.
