According to substrate and polkadot guides i learned that parathreads must participate in per block auctions (right?). But I can't figure out how to do this exactly. How to participate in such auctions and set a bid? From where can I manage that?

The "pay-as-you-go" functionality is not yet implemented for parathreads.

It is on the roadmap.

Currently, becoming a parathread is a first step prior to becoming a parachain. First you register as a parathread, then, upon winning a slot auction, the parathread becomes a parachain. More info on this process can be found here:

You can read more about the envisioned mechanics of parathreads here:
