4 Second-Price Sealed-Bid Auction In a second-price sealed-bid auction, all bidders simultaneously submit a single bid in one round. The winner is the participant who makes the highest bid, but the price he pays is equal to the second highest bid (second-price rule). 3.

At this point, the bidders who continue to bid are keen on winning the dollar because, otherwise, they lose all that they have already offered.

Using the same data from the ascending auction proposed in the first exercise, now consider a second-price sealed-bid auction in which all bidders submit sincere bids.
