At the French version of the ''Three Minutes Thesis'' competition, named ''My Thèse en 180 secondes'', he explained the [[Domaining|Domain Name Industry]] from the point of view of the ccTLD economy and suggested the creation of a [[New gTLD]], the .FRANCE to recreate trust over the [[Domain Name System]].
== Undergraduate years ==
After its ''baccalauréat'', Genty began its education by a ''BTS Domotique'', a technician certificate about home automation, data governance and telecommunications. For its results, he got a AFDET Honour Award<ref>http://afdet38.free.fr/Prix2008/diapo/slides/_DSC1141.html</ref>.

== Master of Science ==
Genty's first year in Master of Science in engineering at [http://www.polytech-angers.fr/en/index.html IstiA] in Angers leaded him to work in several factories including the French brand Louis Vuitton where he got once a remark about his personal life, displayed on the Internet. The HR made a mistake by thinking it was him while it was an homonym too talkative on the Internet. Genty registered its first and family name as trademark<ref> Trademark number 4052269</ref> and some domain names. Its passion for the importance of domain names began by this story.
Graduated in 2015 from Istia with an ''Engineering degree'', Genty began a doctoral thesis at Arts & Métiers ParisTech<ref>https://artsetmetiers.fr/en</ref> the following year.
== PhD Thesis ==
=== History ===
Genty's thesis, funded by the French registrar [[Nameshield]] and by several grants, aimed to understand the mechanisms of domain name valuation. Initially presented as a purely economic study, his thesis mixed computer science, history and economics. Genty's research has made it possible to determine via different PCAs the parameters acting on the value of a name. The database used for semantic calculation was [[DNPrices|DNPRIC.ES]].
=== Results ===
In his thesis, Genty studied scientific publications, popular articles, commercial services including [https://www.estibot.com/ Estibot], [https://www.freevaluator.com/ Freevaluator], [http://www.domainappraisal.org/ Domain Appraisal], [https://domainindex.com/ Domainindex], [https://www.domraider.com/ Domraider], [https://www.siteprice.org/ Siteprice] [https://www.godaddy.com/domain-value-appraisal GoDaddy] and several patents, most of them filed by [[GoDaddy]].
After performing different PCAs, Genty highlighted the correlation effect of price with length, number of words and [[TLD]]. However, the prediction of value proved impossible, with a R² too low to be exploitable.
For Genty, the creation of [[Generic top-level domain|gTLD]]<nowiki/>s, combined with the creation of [[Country code top-level domain|ccTLD]]<nowiki/>s, has created a digital economy based on the volume of domain name registrations. Companies, as well as countries, when managing their ccTLDs, have preferred to develop a new source of profits rather than use their TLD to structure the national namespace. The examples, mostly Polynesian, point out that the low development of the Internet in the era of ccTLDs made it possible not to worry about the importance of this digital territory.
