The endless auction
The new record comes directly from the Rally auction application, an application only available on iPhone and Android that seeks to offer the frenzy and nerves of large auctions in a mobile tool where you can bid wherever you are. The feat of Rally is very important, since it has managed to surpass other large auctions of renowned bookmakers such as Heritage Auctions, a house that until now had been in charge of putting a price on the great titles that have been auctioned in recent years.
We only have to go back a month to remember the million and a half who paid for a copy of Super Mario 64, an immaculate version of the cartridge that Heritage Auctions certified last July.
2 million for a Mario
Once again, the cartridge that has been sold had extremely special conditions. With a score of 9.8 in the Wata certification, it was a completely sealed unit that Rally had purchased in April 2020, a round investment that has ended in the best possible way.
A game with many owners
The Rally play explains very well how great the serve was. Rally bought in April 2020 this copy of Super Mario Bros for $ 120,000. This investment serves to place the game on its platform, and that is where users can buy “shares” of this product to have some authority over it. Thus, when someone makes an important offer on the product, the “owners” decide whether to accept it or not. And that’s what happened when the $ 2 million proposal came along. By the end of 2020 declined a $ 300,000 purchase intent, and now, 75% of the shareholders did not hesitate to accept the offer.
The buyer has obviously remained completely anonymous, and it seems that he is making large purchases in the world of video games, so we may see some other future purchases of this type, if he has not already made the odd one before. . Is this the enigmatic buyer of the Super Mario 64 for 1.5 million dollars?
