The main reason why auctions are so popular around the world is that there is only a lower limit and no upper limit for anything at an auction.
So, any item can fetch a sky-high price at auction, depending mainly on the strength and mentality of the competitors.
Sometimes when they get on each other’s throats, even worthless items can fetch astonishingly high prices.
There are really not many tactics to use in this kind of straightforward bidding, and there are only two common ones: either to raise the price sharply and scare the other party with your momentum, telling them that I have plenty of money and that I can smash you to death; or to follow up slowly, while looking unperturbed and giving the other party the impression that if you want to play, I will play with you to the end.
The first method didn’t work, so Travis Lane had to turn to the second one. What he planned to do was, from now on, as long as the price was still within his reach, he would increase the price at the rate of 10 million.
If the price went up to an unacceptable level, then he would just withdraw silently.
At this moment, when the Old Nordic Queen saw that the price was still far from her own limit, she also raised her hand without thinking and said loudly, “I bid US$300 million!”
As soon as the words left her mouth, Travis Lane cursed in his heart, “Damn old woman, are you f*cking crazy or what? You know that $300 million is almost two f*cking billion RMB, and I only paid that much for the whole thing in the first place! It’s f*cking bad luck!”
While cursing in his heart, Travis Lane said, “I’ll give you 310 million dollars!”
After saying this, Travis Lane’s heart was dripping blood.
He had originally thought that since none of these people had ever seen the Spring Return Pill before, and he had stolen the first copy while they were unprepared, the price should not exceed US$300 million, but who would have thought that the price would already exceed US$300 million as soon as he turned his head.
But the good news is that he is also an entrepreneur with tens of billions of dollars, which translates into at least 10 billion dollars, so this 300 million dollars is nothing to him.
The Middle Eastern tycoon from earlier also raised his hand again and spoke, “I bid 320 million dollars!”
“F*ck!” Travis Lane cursed in his heart and was about to call for $330 million when a black man who had never raised his hand before suddenly raised his hand tremblingly and spoke with a slightly shaky voice, “I …… I bid 500 million dollars!”
This black man, one of the richest black men in the world, was from Nigeria and was a super giant in Nigeria and Africa as a whole.
This man was on holiday in London some time ago when he heard the news that the high society was all talking about the auction of the rejuvenating elixir.
He himself, having suffered from Parkinson’s disease ten years ago, has been travelling around the world over the years in search of the most advanced treatments.
But the cause of Parkinson’s is still not understood by the scientific community, so although he has been actively undergoing various treatments, his Parkinson’s symptoms have still not improved much.
Not only has it not improved, but his condition has worsened over the last two years, to the extent that his own life has been greatly affected.
He is now unable to walk on his own because the tremors in his hands and feet are so strong, and he is unable to eat on his own and has to rely on others to feed him, so he has completely lost his ability to take care of himself and his quality of life has deteriorated dramatically.
Not only that, his five senses have now lost their neural control and his crooked mouth and slanted eyes are so unpleasant that he is not even willing to look in the mirror for several years.
So, even though he had a million dollars, he simply did not have the opportunity to enjoy himself.
