Just because you don't understand it doesn't mean it doesn't happen and as we can see it does happen, regularly too.

$2000 for a skin i can understand somewhat, since i myself collect ingame skins (though not using cash) and spending millions of ingame currency.

its like a painting worth a "few" million dollars (!?!?) in what glorified way does make it worth that much?
in the eyes of the poor thats just wasting money on a piece of canvas with doodles, which could otherwise be better spent somewhere else.


as for where i'd spend that $2000, i'd use about $1000 to upgrade internal hardware, and the remaining $1000 for a nice monitor and some other miscellaneous stuff.

It's exactly the same thing. The fact that you see more value in a bag then in digital asset is just in your head. I for example thing both things not worth it, that other guy thinks that digital asset is worth but bag is not etc.

But overall if enough people think there is value in something then it becomes valuable.

It's possible to attribute value to things ignorantly based on very fleeting emotions and principles.

To boost your Steam games?

Does everyone not care that cheaters are just getting what they deserve or am I mistaken on what that means?

Yep I recently sold a TF2 skin for $15. I got a few more up that go for around the same. Plenty of skins go for $100s of dollars as well.


That vid is crazy. $25,000 for a Weapon skin.

I've had foil trading cards that sold for $25. Took two weeks to flip, but a nice sale went on a few days later and thanks to that card I picked up a few nice games that I've gotten plenty of fun out of. I'd be doing the exact same thing if I happened to get loot crates in various games.
