some time ago I had an issue (and I wasn't the only one) with an inability to pay for an auction I won due to the skyrocketing USD price which I expected to be fixed at 75 USD (+15% commission) if I was the only bidder (which I was).
I purchased one niche thanks to generous help from @Malkazoid but skipped the other payment (receiving a rep hit and 24 hr ban on Narrative). I think I'm proving to be a decent niche owner and I'm interested in purchasing some other niches but since I'd like to pay in fiat, I'd like to make sure first that the promised lock on the USD price once the auction started has been already implemented.
I haven't noticed any announcements but maybe I missed something? If not, is there any timeframe on the implementation of this function? I suspect it would help with niche sales.
There are so many people here who would surely make excellent niche owners and promoters but may feel intimidated by crypto as of now. I think we shouldn't be blocked from investing in the platform. I decided to get my head around NRVE once we have our wallets so, for now, I'm left with dollars - but I won't risk bidding if I may and up getting a bill of 170 USD for a niche no one tried to outbid me for.
