Ok, majes.tytyty and thanks

What is the benefit of sending bid in the last 2 minutes? Just for the lose other people money or anything else?

Do you know if you don't get at least 5% ROI then you won't get even your investment back? If you like to lose your money then send $2000-3000 at the beggning of the round, not in the last 2 minutes.

·

The benefit is profit. And since my bid was within the “Maximum Suggested Bid,” all bidders profit. As the numbers show.

Please understand that when you make a bid, you take a risk. That’s part and parcel of the bidding process.

Also, please click on the following link and scroll down to read my previous comment about using SteemBot Tracker. That will give you a clearer idea of what's involved in the bidding process on SBT.
