“Yeah.” Chen Zekai switched one of the images, to a close-up of Li Tailai’s face, and said with a smile, “Look, young master, although this Li Tailai is calling for a very crisp price, his expression still seems to be very meaty.”
Ye Chen took a look and couldn’t help but laugh dumbly as he nodded and said, “In fact, at least half of the two hundred people who came today would have decided to give up when the starting price was announced. Even if they were willing to follow the bidding, with their strength, they probably wouldn’t be able to afford it after a few rounds.”
In fact, even Li Tailai himself was a little surprised at the starting price of US$100 million.
According to the current exchange rate, US$100 million was more than RMB600 million.
The last time he had bid for a whole Spring Return Pill, it had only cost him two billion RMB, and now, at a quarter of the starting price, it was a third of the price of the whole one last time!
However, Li Tai Lai couldn’t help but calculate in his heart: “Of the four copies of the Spring Recovery Pill to be opened tonight, the first one is definitely the cheapest because the vast majority of people here don’t know how miraculous the Pill really is yet, but once the first one is auctioned off and taken in public, it will definitely drive this group of people crazy! The price will definitely go up afterwards! That’s why I’m determined to win this first copy!”
When Song Wanting saw that Li Tai Lai had placed a bid, she nodded and said with a smile, “Okay, No. 055 has bid US$100 million, is there anyone willing to bid US$110 million? Please raise your hand if you have one.”
As soon as the words left his mouth, an old man with white hair in the crowd raised his hand and said, “I bid 110 million dollars!”
Without hesitation, Li Tailai continued to raise his hand, “I bid 120 million!”
Song Wanting was just about to speak when an old man with a Middle Eastern face raised his hand and said, “I bid 200 million!”
Li Tailai was instantly stunned by this sudden appearance of Cheng Biaojin, and thought to himself, “This guy is asking for $200 million from $120 million as soon as he opens his mouth, I wonder if he is really rich, or if he is deliberately trying to play a psychological tactic to scare the other competitors away with an instant and drastic price increase!”
Before Li Tai Lai could regain his senses, he saw the old Scandinavian empress sitting in the VIP seat in the front row speak up, “I bid $250 million!”
The Old Queen was not worth much, the entire Iliad family, together, had just enough a*sets to cover the entry threshold for this auction.
However, to the Old Queen, who had already walked in front of a ghostly gate, money was nothing in front of life.
She could not afford to pay US$2 billion or US$3 billion, but she could afford to pay US$200 million or even US$300 million by gritting her teeth.
After all, she was not strong enough and her ammunition was limited, so she had to fight quickly and catch everyone by surprise.
So, as soon as she opened her mouth, she raised the price by US$50 million, in order to show her determination to win and to scare off those bidders who were trying to fight with her a little.
Li Tai Lai did not expect to encounter two competitors who had raised their bids significantly right away.
However, on second thought, there were already two rivals who had played this way, so if he played the same way, it might not work.
So, he raised his hand nonchalantly and casually said, “I bid 260 million dollars!”
