What is Chinese Pinyin:
In China the standard alphabet for writing, uses pictorial symbols known as "Hanzi" which use strokes, to represent words, there is a different Hanzi symbol for every word, they do not use an alphabetic scrip, utilizing letters to construct words: like a Latin type scrip of 26 Characters as used in Western Language. Although there are over 50,000 Chinese Hanzi, individuals will learn 2000 to 9000 symbols. A newspaper will use around 2000 symbols. Chinese Pinyin was invented in 1950 by linguists; as a bridge, to allow Chinese Hanzi to be written with a latin alphabet. It is also used in Malaysia, Singapore and Taiwan, where it has been the official standard since 2009.
Typewriter Issues and Use of Numbers:
The vast number of Hanzi symbols has caused tremendous input problems for a typesetter or typewriter. Imagine a typewriter with 2000 symbols, it is simply impractical, there have been many attempts.
The advent of Chinese Pinyin, fuzzed the problem, allowing Chinese users to construct words with characters, to represent a Hanzi. However picture you are from the East looking West to a western typewriter, you are from a land of symbols, you may know over 10,000, and are faced with the mental issues of constructing words from characters to represent the symbol and you also have to learn Chinese Pinyin.
Use of numbers in Chinese Culture:
Enlightened with the above knowledge, it is much easier for a Chinese user to remember and use numbers especially when using a computer. For example, a western users will generally have their name, with some numbers at the end, of an email; firstname.lastname@example.org.
Also reflect when you went to a Chinese Takeaway. Although the menus are written in English, they also have numbers alongside the dish, and when the order is written down, by the delightful lady of the orient, she writes numbers, or she simply shouts, 33, 56 and 21 with gravy. Dont reakon there is a Hanzi for "with gravy". Numbers are like music, a universal language.

Be wary of Domain ValuationsHow much is a Domain Name Worth:
When I first started creating domain names for sale, I was always surprised at the discrepancy's in valuations from domain valuation websites. One would put a value of $15, another $22,000 for the same domain. One particular domain I had which was valued at $22,000, had an offer of $100,000; 15 minutes after I listed it on Flippa. It was then I turned my back on domain valuations, and concluded, that within reason a domain, especially a Brandable Generic Top Level Domain Name, is worth what someone is willing to pay. Internet domain name valuations also use a computer algorithm, which bases its valuation on the amount of letters within the domain, and if the domain contains a name or combinations of names that is / are in a dictionary. It bases no value on the most important aspect of a domain name; especially with brand domains, how memorable, pronounceable and brandable the domain name is. A fascinating example of how incorrect their valuations are is the domain name poker.com, one valuer puts a $22,000 price tag on it, when it is actually up for sale for $20,000,000 I rest my case. A domain name, especially a brand domain is worth what someone is willing to pay for it, for what someone is willing to pay for it, is what it sells for, and that is what it is worth.
