With a 100,000-dollar offer being called, the auctioneer unconsciously dug a finger into his ear to clean it out, hoping he had heard things right. Even with his long experience in this business, he was shocked by the bid.
For these kinds of large-scale auctions, as long as there was no special item that dictated the value of the units, the longer the auction proceeded, the lower the final offers would be. This was due to treasure hunters getting tired and less excited, and thus their interest in the units would dwindle.
Take this auction for example: yesterday, there were more than 1,000 people who attended. Today, there were only 500 people, with some just here to watch for fun.
So 100,000 dollars offered for a unit was shocking, and was the highest bid yet! What was even more astounding to the auctioneer was that the offer was made by an unknown Chinese fella.
This's an experimental test for reading assistance in case.
We highly recommend you to enjoy the beauty of the original words.
