A dutch auction is an auction that starts at a high price an decreases over time.
There are usually about 15 to 30 parcels listed for auction every Wednesday.
When an auction starts, all you have to do is hit the Buy Now Button.
A metamask window should pop-up, and once the transaction confirmed, you have the Parcel!
A Classic auction is an auction that starts at a low price an increases with bids. The winner is the person who bid the highest.
Similarly to dutch auctions, when an auction starts, all you have to do is hit the Place bid button or Make Offer button.
The button should take you to a form in which you can decide your bid.
If your bid is the highest by the end of the auction time, you should be the winner.
Often, bnolan, will randomly accept bids on new parcels just before the auctions start.
Another way to purchase a parcel is therefore to place a bid -before auctions- on one of the newly created parcels in his account.
To achieve that, hit the Make Offer Button!
To make an offer you need WETH, which you can easily obtain by converting ETH to WETH on opensea using their WETH converter.
If you place an offer on a parcel, that offer is still valid even when the parcel is sold via auction (i.e. your offer was not accepted).
In this circumstances, the new owner can easily resell the parcel to you right after purchasing it.
-You place an offer of 5 eth on a parcel -offer is not accepted before auctions-.
-Parcel goes on auction for 0.9eth to 0.6eth.
-Someone can buy it at 0.9eth and resell it to you for 5 eth.
Now we have to update the parcels ownership! To do that, go to the parcel's page by clicking on View on cryptovoxels in the top right-hand corner of opensea.
Once there, hit the Squid that says
Update, and refresh the page!
The parcel is now yours!
