Huangshan, a city where more than 6,000 ancient buildings have endured for generations, has recently launched an online platform for the trading of them, according to the local public resource watchdog.

Two antique houses in Shexian county under the city were sold through e-bidding at local public resource exchanges. They fetched some 7 million yuan ($1.03 million), representing a 360 percent rise in value, the municipal public resource administration said.

It's the first time an old house has been traded on an online platform. The move is seen as a step towards efficient protection and rational use of folk residencies dating back to over 1,000 years ago.

More than 6,000 old houses dotting the city are well-known tourist destinations and repositories of Huizhou culture, one of China’s three major time-honored regional cultures.
