The Story Of My First Bitcoin. (Late 2013)

Please don’t take this as financial advise. Just my own thoughts on the market. The story of my first Bitcoin. I feel as it’s an important time to tell again. Hopefully others can learn from my mistakes.
In late 2013 (I was 22 at the time) my brother told me all about this new type of internet money, that no single entity controlled, it intrigued me. I decided to cash in the change I had been collecting for the past year to buy my first bitcoin at $740 Canadian. Saw it rise to over $1000 USD then the Mt.Gox hack happened.. It nose dived to $200 USD and for about 2 years it felt like it did absolutely nothing.. Then it started to rise like a phoenix from the ashes. But I was uneducated on bitcoin and it’s halvings at the time. It hit around $1000 USD again, I had decided I would sell out of .7 because I was in profit and wasn’t sure if a huge hack would happen again. I bought CSGO skins sigh (digital video games skins) this was early 2017. I had to watch bitcoin triumphantly rise to $20,000 USD, thinking what have I done!! I held this thing for years!! The point I’m trying to make is don’t make the same mistake I did. Our previous ATH will be crushed just like every past one. I thought I would never be able to buy another bitcoin again but I was blessed with this bear market. $20,000 will be just like $1,000 was in 2017. I took it as an opportunity to rewrite my past mistake. If you can financially, please Hodl strong my friends. We are so close to something spectacular.

[Discussion] CS.DEALS now has a real money marketplace with 1% selling fees

I want to start this off with something personal, which is exceptional because I never talk about my personal life on the internet or in any way mix it with my work online. For the past 16 months my life has consisted of nothing but misfortunes, playing CS and working on the marketplace and that's why this is a big day for me and why I want to share my little story behind it. I'm not looking for pity, my story is just something I want to share as I feel it's tied to my creation. Originally I had even bigger plans and created an incredible trading engine and more for cs.deals over the time period but it's to be determined if the plans are ever going to be realised. The ultimate plan will also remain a secret.
When I started KeyVendor over three years ago I've since become a fairly well known name in this scene, but people don't really know who I am, they only recognize my name and might know what I do online. I don't have social media accounts that people could follow and I don't mention to anyone what I'm up to or how I'm feeling. I'm really honored to see that people recognize me here and care about me and my goings-on, like when I got falsely VAC banned in January and people - some of whom I don't even know - supported me and defended my side without even knowing me. Valve was quick to remove the ban and that was that.
In 2017 I was happy with how I was doing with my trading sites and Keyvendor and everything was good in general. However, on the first day of 2018 everything started tumbling down, in the end turning out to be the worst year of my life, possibly for the rest of my life. Without a warning I suddenly lost my wonderful mother to a brain aneurysm. I watched from the side as she was passing out and was rushed to the hospital with little to no hope. We share the loss with my siblings, step father and my relatives and I feel the burden is also shared, which is why it wasn't as painful to me as it might've been to someone else. Then in April all my businesses went down due to the trade lock update. It was an understandable action from Valve and I know skins are a risky business and as I said I'm not asking for pity, this is life. There's much more I could add but I want to keep this short. After the update I quickly got Keyvendor back up and then I had to start working on cs.deals and my other trade site to bring them back for the loyal users who were patiently waiting to trade out their balance (we also did manual withdrawals for those who asked) and to continue using the loved services. In the meantime of coding features for the trade locked items, I started to get a vision about the big plans that I mentioned, which now led to this marketplace. The trade sites were coming back together slowly but steadily, when in July my alcoholic father passed away from liver failure. He wasn't the best person and we hadn't really been in touch for a few years since moving away from him and it wasn't a huge deal, unlike my mother's case. I was left with all the paperwork related to his death and this somewhat postponed the launch of the trading sites. All these misfortunes have driven me to create this marketplace to make things better again.
Finally in October I had CS.DEALS and my other site back up and running, but turns out they only have expenses and don't make any profit at all. Ever since then I was even more determined to create the big plan to get me back to where I was in 2017: have something sustainable and something I can constantly work on to improve. I hope this marketplace will be the thing. I'm determined to make this the best thing the scene has seen since OPskins if not even better, even if won't be as appreciated as it would've been during OPSkins and non-tradelock times. From now on we will have a bigger team working on things and I won't be a one man army.

Anyway, that's the story. Let's get to the marketplace:

You can think of the service as a trade bot website and a real money skin marketplace combined. You can sell your skins for trade-balance, like you would do on an advanced trade bot, or you can sell them for real money and buy them like you would on a marketplace. You can also top up trade-balance by converting real money to trade-balance and vice versa. Currently all this is confusing but we are looking into ways to make it simpler to the user and your feedback would come in useful with that.
Initially we will support the sale of the same items as the tradebot has supported thus far: CSGO, TF2, H1Z1, Dota2 and Rust. More games will be supported as the site picks up pace. The plan is to keep all fees very low to make this THE place to sell skins. There will be a constant flow of new features and improvements based on you guys' feedback and whatever is needed. Right now the feature set is pretty lacking and the whole service might feel crude, but everything will improve very quickly.
More deposit and withdrawal options are coming in the next week or so, but right now only Bitcoin deposits and withdrawals are supported. The most notable deposit options will be G2A PAY and SEPA transfers. Cashouts will work via SEPA transfer, Paypal and of course Bitcoin. The cashouts will be in Euro but we will also offer occasional USD cashouts via Paypal and bank transfer.
What I feel is really unique and good about the marketplace is the PriceDecay™ pricing method. Here the explanation for it from the website and an image to go with it:
With PriceDecay™ you can cashout your skins easier than ever, for better prices than ever. It automatically lowers the price of your item over time using an advanced algorithm. That means you won't have to keep updating the price of your item and you don't need to know the exact price of your item to sell it for good value. The item will get sold when it reaches the optimal pricepoint, without much effort at all.
https://imgur.com/a/TQzeRE4
If you have any feedback or confusion about the service, I would very much appreciate if you could let us know about them so it can be improved. I will be happy to answer any questions you have about anything.
I asked the mods for a permission to make this post, as cs.money always has a post made about them whenever they add a new pixel on their site. However, I never got a response so let's see how this goes.

[05.12.20 updated] Massive List of Most LEGIT free sites for CS:GO case openings + added website

I just wanted to take some time to list simply the best FREE CS:GO case opening sites, which went down few notches after the recent Valve changes. Nowadays it’s nearly impossible to find a legit site without having to deposit $1-5 and to gamble, but I’ve listed the cheapest sites with best strategies so that you could also profit from them, like I have done. I’ve also listed the total amount I have been able to withdraw!
You also find the complete list at https://skinsmaster.vip/
1. HellCase Join via: https://skinsmaster.vip/index.html#hellcase
Still simply THE BEST site out there! Thanks to all you great people I have finally reached affiliate level 5 on HellCase, meaning that YOU get free Rainbow case, arguably the best case on the site and the only one I ever personally buy (free $0.70 just by using my link - use that to buy one Rainbow case or two Mil-Spec cases if you just want more skins) just by joining and using the ref code 6230763. Also free daily case if you add hellcase.com to your name or refill with $5. Highly recommended!
2. CSGoFast Join via: https://skinsmaster.vip/index.html#csgofast
Nowhere near the easy and totally free site it used to be, but the minimum deposit to COMPLETELY unlock withdrawals is just $1, and VGO is accepted for easy, instant access. Same deal with gambling; no more free cases. Luckily their Solo PvE Slot seems to be pretty generous, so I would recommend you to start with $0.1 bet and 5 winlines until to get to like $10 or so, and then switch to full 9 lines and maybe up the bet as well. The best thing about this game are the bonus games which use all 9 winlines regardless, and your original bet, so it’s a fast way to really multiply your money.
3. CSGetto Join via: https://skinsmaster.vip/index.html#csgetto
Free case from here if you add their URL to your username, and if you have a VK.com account (which you really should with CS:GO sites, because most of them are Russian) you can just like their page and get more points for another free case.
4. Farmskins Join via: https://skinsmaster.vip/index.html#farmskins
Another totally legit site, although they do require minimum of $4 deposit to enable withdrawals. But as you can just deposit $5, get either AWP or AK-47 skin and then cheaper skins with that and just withdraw them immediately this is not a problem.
Use code REDDIT to get $0.90 for free when registering!
5. PVPro Join via: https://skinsmaster.vip/index.html#pvpro
Join and use my code to receive 50 free coins. Nowadays you need to play 5 PvP games to unlock the marketplace, since they switched from their own market to a player driven marketplace. But since the games can be played for free and you can win more coins that way, you’ll soon enough can start buying your skins!
6. WTFSkins Join via: https://skinsmaster.vip/index.html#wtfskins
Register and use code redditskin (click on FREE on the top of the screen) to get $0.40 which you can directly use on the store and withdraw without making a deposit!
You can also link your Twitter to get an extra $0.1!
Remember to claim your free coins daily!
7.CSGOLive Join via: https://skinsmaster.vip/index.html#csgolive
Same deal as with WTFSkins (same team runs the sites). Register and use the code redditskins and link your Twitter (optional, but recommended) to get $0.16 which you can use to open two Graveyard Cases. No deposit to withdraw.
Remember to claim your free coins daily!
8. ClickLoot Join via: https://skinsmaster.vip/index.html#clickloot
ClickLoot (before SkinSilo) is a site that tends to go bit up and down, and if you're moving around, even traveling, they can easily lock down your account and while you should be able to get it unlocked via support, but who knows when that no longer is an option. But unless you travel frequently this one is still a decent option that actually lets you withdraw your skins to Steam fast. Also offers cryptocurrency withdrawals for bigger sums.
Register and use the code redditfreeskins.
9. CSGOEmpire Join via: https://skinsmaster.vip/index.html#csgoempire
Free case just by joining and using the code REDDITCSGO by clicking the Free Case link on the top of the site. Withdrawals to CS:GO (Insteant), CS:GO (Trade-Locked), Dota 2, Rust or H1Z1. Bitcoin and Ethereum withdrawals coming soon. Free daily cases for leveling up, coin flip, roulette and match betting for gambling.
Register and use the code REDDITCSGO.
10. EZRage Join via: https://skinsmaster.vip/index.html#ezrage
EZRage does not offer case openings, but they have great odds for fast games and coinflips, and they also offer 100 player jackpot games! Joining and using my code grants you extra 5% on each deposit, so remember to use the code to get most out of using this site.
Register and use the code REDDIT to receive 5% more on each deposit.
11. DaddySkins Join via: https://skinsmaster.vip/index.html#daddyskins
DaddySkins has loads of features ranging from cheap cases ($0.29 Mil-Spec!) to arena competitions and item upgraders. They support Ethereum payments which you can use to get your user level higher to get access to absolutely free daily cases.
12. Gamdom Join via: https://skinsmaster.vip/index.html#gamdom
This site has it all - apart from case openings, that is. But as you can just play easy games like crash to earn coins and then You can withdraw CSGO items directly, but cryptocurrency withdrawals require a deposit to be unlocked.
Register and use the code REDDIT to receive up to 80 000 coins to really get you started!

The story of my first Bitcoin. Hopefully others can learn from my mistake.

My brother had told me all about this new type of internet money that no one entity controlled, it intrigued me. I had decided to cash in the change I had been collecting for the past year to I buy my first bitcoin at 740 Canadian (Late 2013 I believe). Saw it rise to over 1000 USD then Mt.Gox happened.. Ofc it nose dived, to 200 USD and for about 2 years did nothing. Then it started to go off again and it hit around 1000 USD again.. I decided I would sell out of .7 of it to buy CSGO skins hahaha (digital goods) this was early 2017. I had to watch bitcoin triumphantly rise to 20k thinking what have I done!! I held this thing for years!! Don’t make the same mistake I did. Our previous ATH will be crushed just like every past one. I thought I would never be able to buy another bitcoin but I was blessed with this bear market. I took it as an opportunity to rewrite my past mistake. Hodl strong my friends!

moe, csgo diamonds and twitch's no reaction

Most of you probably know what happened between moe and cs go diamonds so i will not explain it. If you dont just google "moe cs go diamonds".
I wonder why there is no reaction of twitch, i mean he used their plattform to advertise this website. Maybe they need some evidence but in my opinion there are more then plenty in the posts both sides made. For example Moe said on twitter he had 26000 diamonds he tried to withdraw, diamonds he won with the knowledge of the future coin flips. He wanted to withdraw money won from users of the site, so there are definitely people who were cheated on. You can find his twitter post here: https://twitter.com/m0E_tv/status/742117097765933056
On another twitter post he admitted that he got "the rolls before they happen."Cs go diamonds did this multiple times even with him saying not to. But as you can see on the skype conversation he had with an admin of cs go diamonds he asked for the future lists. So it was a lie. You can find the twitter post here: https://twitter.com/m0E_tv/status/742435274370613249 And the skype conversation here: https://pbs.twimg.com/media/Ck6fFDCWgAAmkfG.png
Cs go diamonds said it is "provably fair" because you cant manipulate the future rolls. But if you know the future rolls there is no need in manipulating them. Imagine lotto where you know the future numbers, there is no point in changing them.
So im wondering why there are no consequences from twitch's side. These gaming sites are intransparent and most likely all fraud but it is still allowed to advertise them. I realy hope there is a chance to get a response from an official side or from some streamers.
It is also most likely most of the skins deposit on these websites are gone forever. For Example shroud had around 81000 $ on cs go wild but i dont think there are that many skins to withdraw (Im not entirely sure because im not registered on the site) Further he is only 1 of many with such balance. So my assumption is most of the gambling sites sold the skins to pay for sponsorships and their overall costs. As you can see on the skype conversation between moe and cs go diamonds they paid him 7435.9$ and 9537.04$ for his sponsorship. These are 10% of their total earnings. Following this they made 74359$ and 95370$ dollar in the last months and are also able to pay moe a buy out with 75000 (In Bitcoins, the IRS would probably be interested in also) As i see it it is probably a pyramid scheme.
At last maybe for the streamers. You have this huge opportunity to be part of something new and of big changes. You shouldnt forget that you are responsible for you behaviour to your audience. Imagine a superbowl add about investing in the pyramid scheme of Bernard Madoff.
Ps: If you watch the video of moe and his girlfriend winning 54000$ it is kinda obivous he was using these knowledge. He was down on 3900$ and put all on green. His girlfriend randomly comes in to scream with him as soon as he won. It could be a coincidence but the chances for this to happen are very low. I mean how often did you see his girlfriend on stream? This is not an evidence but kinda odd.
Since there are so many post with questions i thought it is necessery to update and try to answer some of the most frequent one. I had no idea what i let lose but im glad so many of you feel the same as i do.
Yes, it was my first post. Im normaly an introvert guy who doesnt post anything on the internet. But what bothered me is that someone could pull something like this off, get paid 95000$ and doesnt have to fear any consequences. Further i tried to refer to most sources i mentioned, so it doesnt matter if it is my first post or not, you can read everything for yourself and make your conclusions.
Im not sure if valve is responsible. Assume the skins are like your car. You can do whatever you like because its your property, so you can also use it to bet..
I think twitch is responsible. TV Broadcasters are also responsible for the ads they broadcast but im actually not sure.
I dont hate moe. He is kinda entertaining, you can compare him to gordon ramsay which a lot people like and watch. They are acting closely the same. But that doenst mean anything. Imagine Kate Middleton, who is for a lot of people probably one of the nicest people on earth, tricks people into a pyramid scheme. Shouldnt she be punished like everyone else should?
Also a lot of people compared the deposit and withdraw system to a bank. A bank is transparent (at least in parts) and regulated from public authoritys. The money you deposit is used for all sorts of credits for consumer and companies. They pay their bills with the interests they make with them. I know a normal bank does a lot more to earn money but thats one of their main incomes.
Many think he didnt benefit from knowing the future numbers. Thats partly right. He doesnt win directly by playing against others. But imagine a roulette game with 1 guy at the table who is partnered with the owner . He can win for the owner against people who doenst know anything about the partnership. On a regular roulette table without the green it is a 50/50 chance to win, it is mathematicaly a fair game because the expectancy value is 0. The players pay for the others, it is in balance, but not if there is one guy who know the future rolls. I think thats the reason why cs go diamonds didnt allow him to withdraw skins.
Sassanian mentioned it is a Ponzi Scheme and i think he is right, thank you.
I know a lot of streamer advertise different betting sites and i didnt mention anyone else beside moe. The point is he made a part public of what is happening behind those sites public and also used informations from the admin. There are no evidences of other streamers doing the same. (Cant believe he made a fraud public he was involved in, he doesnt seem stupid, but that definitely is. Maybe he was greedy or had one of his rage moments)
On cs go diamdonds are also no informations of how they make that much money. I mean on regular roulete there is green on which the bank wins but thats not the case at cs go diamonds as far as i know. I didnt find a deposit fee or anything like it ( Just Imagine there is such a fee at 1%. As i mentioned they made 95370$ (i dont know if moe got 10% or 20% of that so the number may differ) in one month. I refer to the twitter post of cs diamonds which you can find here: https://twitter.com/CSGO_Diamonds/status/742706689913262080 With such a fee there would be 9.537.000 $ of skins deposit in one month. Thats hard to believe) If someone knows more feel free to post any information you can refer to.
You can find an article about it here: http://www.hltv.org/blog/12005-csgodiamonds-fraud-the-reason-why-sites-like-this-should-be-blocked http://www.esportsbettingreport.com/csgo-diamonds-skin-betting-m0e/ http://americanbettingsite.com/2016/csgo-diamonds-scamming/
Statements of both parties are on their twitter accounts: https://twitter.com/csgo_diamonds post from June 14 https://twitter.com/m0E_tv posts from June 13

[Discussion] Would you guys like an "AMA" post where I share some knowledge/info with you?

I've been around for ~4 years and have cleared 6 figures trading. I'd be happy to help answer questions or offer advice, if it's wanted. I'm pretty much done trading items now, as I've gone balls deep into crypto. I started with ~$50 and got to where I am now. Along the way, I have learned how to make money in a large number of niches. If interested, I can share the whole story and answer questions "live". Lemme know!
Edit 1:
Fk it, let's do it live.
Go ahead and throw some questions at me and I'll respond as I can.
Edit 2:
My story
I started off small, compared to most. In fact, my pinned tweet is of my 1st sale - a single awp asiimov! Hah always makes me laugh to look back at that. Anyway, I build that first bit of money up to around $200 and got scammed... friend impersonator got me. Lost everything, back to $0. I bought back in with like $150 or so, and tried again. This time, I researched all the scam methods I could. I'd learned my lesson.
Moving on, I slowly built up that $150 to around $1 or 2k in about a year. I grinded hard. I lived on csgo lounge and live trade servers. I focused on vanilla, simple guns that were priced a little bit lower than normal. I looked for 1 - 2 k profit deals at first. That got me from the $150 to the ~$500 range. At this point, I knew I needed to make better use of my cash, so I started trading knives mainly. I became THE expert on m9 slaughters and made a killing on them. While it took months (maybe 6) to go $150 -> $500, I went from $500 to $1k in a fraction of the time. That's where I learned about patterned items. I could buy a knife off market or lounge or wherever and resell it for more by focusing on the diamond or the angels on it. My eyes were dollar signs.
Fast forward another year, I got the $5k range and cashed out completely. Along the way going from $1k to $5k, I became THE expert on Karambit Fades. I got to where I could find the exact difference between a true and a fake 90/10, which resulted in some massive profits at times. It took a solid year, but that was my transition to the $5k range.
At that point, I started focusing more on my family. Trading took a LOT of time away and I wanted to be with my family more. I cashed out everything and enjoyed the profits. I even went to Vegas and played in one of the smaller WSOP events (where I lost my ass haha). I didn't care, it was fun. I enjoyed a trip I'd never had been able to take and I got more time with my family.
After about 6 months to a year, an old contact reached out to me. Apparently, we had done a trade and I had made some sort of positive impression on him. He felt he could trust me. He knew I was out of the game, but he pulled me back in with a crazy offer. He was starting to buy from gambling sites directly and wanted me to help him move inventory. I would buy in at a very, very low % and resell for about 15 - 20% profit. The plan was to do this 3 times a week, for as long as we could. I was intrigued... and almost passed. But I scraped together $2k and did it.
The catch here was I could only buy using crypto currency, like Bitcoin. I had NO knowledge wtf this was about, so I was very hesistant. I'm not a risky person, but I saw the opportunity, so I went for it. I figured it out, and was a sort of "early adopter" for the Btc -> CSGO skins scene, because of this setup with my friend. Anyway, after about 2 or 3 months of this, I went from $2k to about $12k. I was blown away. But as is the case with most good things, it had to come to an end. Valve began banning gambling sites, and my money tree disappeared.
At this point, I wanted to see if I could keep things moving and grow the fund more. I was focused on making real money, for the gamily now, not little money for side trips. Been there, done that. I realized I needed to get into the "god tier" market and began communicating with the one and only ROFLM0NSTER . I owe him a lot, as he took me under his wing and helped me grow from the $12k range to where I ended up now.
Year 3 basically was me going from $12k to ~$25k trading Dlores, karambit sapphires, etc. I used csgo exchange to contact old owners of items, make them great offers, then sell to collectors for what I paid + some negotiated %. I met loads of guys I looked up to. I can't tell you how amazing it was to start casually talking to cAre, st4ck, Rofl, Ibuypower, idn, etc. THAT was worth way, way more than any $ I made honestly. Reminds me of that line from logic's song - "Funny how your idols can turn into your brethern".
Year 4, I kicked off with one of my biggest trades ever - the #1 Souvenir Dragin Lore FN. I bought for around $25k in items, and sold in HOURS for around $37.5k. That was unreal.
By the end of the year, I'd cleared the $100k mark. I cashed out a lot along the way and did a lot with it. That list includes:
  • Started a new business (haircuts!)
  • took fam to disney land
  • Spent $5k on a new pc rig
  • Took a trip to Niagra Falls
  • Put money for kids future education
After All that, I had maybe $10 or $20k left, which i chose to put into the crypto scene. I bought into a new currency called ETHEREUM around the $100 mark, and sold at the $350 mark. That single moment was the LARGEST profit I'd ever made, with the least amount of effort, ever! Doesn't always go that way, but this time it did. Since then, I've spent the majority of my free time focusing on crypto and forsee me continuing to do so going forward.
That's it! That's my story, time for Q&A
Edit 3:
Some of my tips for success:
  • 1. If you plan on being around a while, DONT BE A DICK.
I mean, it's really that simple. People want to trade with people they like. I can't tell you how many times I've overpaid just because I was dealing with someone I liked and trusted. And I know others did the same for me too.
  • 2. Remeber who helped you get where you are.
I'm a large donor with multiple sites, and it's not always because I'm "flexing" or whatever. It's because those guys helped me make money. Exchange and metjm especially - those sites were both game changers for me.
  • 3. Don't get caught up in the money.
I traded on the side, part time. I had a family in that time, finished college and a masters, worked full time, and started a side business. These things are all what make you well-rounded. Don't get focused on the $ so much that you miss what life is all about.
  • 4. Demand that you're compensated for your time.
As I mentioned before, I got to meet a lot of "celebrities" as I was coming up. But sometimes, a well known person will still make you bad offers or try to get you to do work for them for "free". There came a time when I had to put my foot down, and not help others unless I was being fairly compensated. For example, one big trader asked for my help obtaining something he could not get. The owner had blocked him and didn't want to deal with him. I got it for him, spending around $3k of my own money to get it. When it came time to trade with my collector, he got angry that I had spent $3k instead of the $2.9k that he wanted to spend (which was not possible). He was so upset, he refused to compensate me anything... for spending $100 more than he wanted... to obtain something important to him... when he was worth $200k or more easily... THAT is the person I never wanted to become.

[PSA] xCobalt's Complete Guide to Everything You Could Possibly Want to Know about CS:GO Trading

Hey everyone!
This is a post that isn't just aimed towards newer players, but to everybody. I'm including a lot of information in this, and it is basically my guide to trading in general. It's a compilation of my past 2 years of trading combined with everything I've learned from other people, and I hope that it helps you all.
I will be adding more on to this guide, but this has already taken me 4 hours to type, so I will be gradually adding on. If you have anything to contribute or suggest to me, then please feel free!
I would also like to add that I'm doing my best to credit everyone who made x image, but some of the images were found on imgur or without parent posts, so if you could please tell me who made x image, I will happily update the post with credit to them.
Edit: Fixed a lot of typos.
Edit 2: Thanks for all of the support and feedback! Very glad to know that people will be using this guide :)
Edit 3: If you guys want, I will go ahead and work on the video version I was considering making this week. It will be a fair amount of work, but It should be nice.
Edit 4: More Grammar and spelling fixed
Edit 5: Removed Katowice price Generalization
Edit 6: Holy shit! This is now one of the top 6 highest ranking posts of all time on the subreddit! Thank you all so much for the love and support, and let's try to keep new traders always informed and aware!

4.0 Key Trading 101
5.0 Souvenir Items
6.0 Stickers on Guns
7.0 Trading FAQs
Without further stalling, let's get started!
1.0 - Trading Basics
In late 2011, before CS:GO was even released, Valve introduced the ability to trade TF2 items in Steam. It was a phenomenon that nobody thought would become as big as it was, and it has only expanded over the last 5 years. With the Arms Deal update in CS:GO on the 14th of August, 2013, we were introduced to what would eventually become one of the largest and most sustained economies in gaming. A trade is when two steam users interact by moving items from accounts, and the safety and level of it has evolved since its release. Trades can be live, or they can be offers. An offer is when a user sends a non-live trade to another player, who can then spend time to think about it, and either decline or accept the offer.
1.1 - Getting Started
Against what all of the nothing to knife videos would lead you to believe, trading is not something where you can get to a FN Dragon Lore from a Nova Sand mesh... well not within 2 weeks (Unless you are very fucking lucky.) The best way to start out trading is to invest $50+ and start from there. The more you invest, the easier it is to make profit, but there are more risks associated with some higher tier items. The least amount of money you should spend when getting into the game is $10, $5 is fine too, but honestly, it is worth spending the amount of money that you might spend on lunch to buy some skins that will last longer then said lunch.
In order to get started with trading, you will need the following:
The rest is explained throughout this guide.
1.2 - Who to Trust
Deciding on who to trust is simultaneously extremely easy and incredibly difficult. When you're doing a normal trade, there is next to nothing that the other person can do to scam you. Basically, as long as they or you send a trade offer with both items in the trade, you're golden.
Never trade with people who do the following:
1.3 - Cashrep
So what is cashrep? Cashrep is a Reputation thread that a user uses when they are doing trades for real money. If you're looking to start trading with real money yourself, the best thing to do is to small money trades with extremely reputable traders who have extensive cashrep, to start building your own.
So what is steamrep? Steamrep (http://steamrep.com/) is a community run website that is aimed stopping scammers in their tracks. Always check a user's account before trading with them, regardless of whether they are doing a cash trade with you or not. This is important, because some people will go to extensive lengths just to get a bit of extra cash from you. I am also aware that everyone does not believe steamrep is necessary, but believe me when I say that it is actually a very useful tool that has saved me plenty of time with figuring out people who have tried to scam me out of real money.
1.4 - The Most Common Scams
1.5 - Trading Etiquette
Here is a list of the things that you should and shouldn't do just as general rules of thumb.
1.6 - Trade Confirmations: What Are They?
Trade confirmations are done via a mobile device. They are pretty much forced upon players to make them do their best to keep their accounts secure. All that you need to do when trading is open your phone, click on the notification that the app gives you, and doublecheck and confirm the trade.
2.0 - Patterns: What Are They And Why are They Important?
A pattern is an ID from 1-999 that is assigned to any item in one's inventory. Randomly generated skins (such as Electric Hive, Crimson Web, Case Hardened, Modern Hunter, Fade, etc.) will appear unique in every pattern. Don't be mistaken though, patterns do affect static skins (such as Dragon Lore, Fire Serpent, Howl, etc.) in a significant way as well. Each pattern also changed wear placement on the gun slightly (i.e. two different skins with the exact same float but different pattern IDs can have completely different scratches.)
It is also noteworthy that every single skin on a given gun with a certain pattern ID will have the exact same wear placement, regardless of what skin it is.
This is important. Note that on ALL of the DLC Knives (Butterfly, Huntsman, Falchion, Shadow Daggers, and the Bowie Knife), the patterns are mirrored. This means that any 'double sided xx' on these knives are lying, or just uninformed.
2.1 - Slaughter Patterns
Slaughter has a wide variety of unique looks, but not all patterns that people claim are patterns are accepted by the community.
The most commonly used patterns are listed here:
This is an image that shows what all of the slaughter patterns look like (generally). It however does have a terrible example of a heart, but finding good heart examples can be difficult.
This is what the slaughter pattern i nthe game files looks like, the shape in the middle of it is the heart.
2.2 - Crimson Web Patterns
Crimson web simultaneously matters the least and the most when it comes to patterns.
Here is an album of 3 different factory new m9 crimson webs, each with different webs to illustrate my point.
2.3 - Fade Patterns
Fade value varies from knife to knife. On the gut knife it is actually unaffected 95% of the time (110% 0.00x usually goes for 105% of market, but nothing else usually sells for much more.) Flip knives are actually sold equivalent to their fade percentage of SA Price (i.e. 90% fade for 90% of steamanalyst, and same for 110%). Meanwhile Karambits go as low as 190 and as high as 700. I will have to update the guide with more prices soon.
Tip: You can use CSGOZone to check the fade percentages of most knives pretty acurately, but it isn't 100% accurate, so doublecheck with people to confirm the fade.
Tip 2: Metjm has an amazing database to scroll through every fade pattern on a few of the knives. View Here.
2.4 - Marble Fade Patterns
Marble fades are one of the most desirable knife finishes in the game, being quite popular in general. Against what some of the shittily made guides out there will have you to believe, you can only get True Fire & Ice with no yellow on the Karambit, Flip Knife, Gut Knife, and Bayonet. This means that you cannot get Fire and Ice on the M9 Bayonet.
On The M9 Bayonet, the most desirable pattern is the Max Red tip, the least desirable is yellow, and the middle child is blue tips.
2.5 Electric Hive Patterns
Electric hives are a skin with a wide pattern range, but many traders either ignore them or are even unaware of the pattern value ranges. I'm an Electric Hive enthusiast myself, and I'm speaking out of my own experience for this part.
Similar to Case Hardeneds, Electric hives desirability peaks at Full Blue, followed by Full Orange hives. Other hives are generally considered to be nothing special, and sell ar market.
The desirability of blue patterns is based NOT on the amount of blue/orange, but the solidity of the line itself. The ideal patterns are shown below, note where the purple line sits.
There is more to go into with these, will add more images when Metjm's buggy screenshots are updated.
2.6 - Kami Patterns
Kamis are purely based on whatever the person is willing to pay for them. A Good example is the Vagina Kami, which from what I've heard has sold for more then 20 keys in the past..
Many patterns exist on the back of the 5-7 Kami, but there aren't that many solid guides for them.
2.7 - Case Hardened Patterns
Case Hardened is simultaneously one of the most and least desired skin & knife finishes in the game.
The prices of these items involve too many factors for me to go over, but the TL;DR version of it is that Blue = Sexy and Rust/Grey = Shit.
Here are some examples of blue gems for each case hardened. Credit to acidaus for finding some of the METJMs and Alamer99 for 3 of the bowies:
2.8 - Doppler
Doppler is extremely controversial because of some of the terms that certain people use to describe their knives.
There are 7 different game files for the doppler, called Phases. The phases are as follows.
People use terms such as "Fake Black Pearl" and "Pink Galaxy" to describe their dopplers. Using terms that do not describe something that it isn't aren't allowed (i.e. a Phase 3 full black is just that, full black. Not a Fake Black Pearl. Phase 1 can arguably be fake black pearl since it has purple, not black.) This is the gray area of dopplers, and is up for debate.
2.9 - Other
This section is for skins that some people may argue deserve to have pattern price differences, but in my experience don't matter. Icarus fells for example are very debatable. I've bought and sold almost all of the Phases of icarus fells for 85% of steamanalyst in keys (only float has mattered in my experience), but I know that some people find certain patterns more desirable. With items such as Icarus fells, it is purely the user's preference that matters.
Other items that fall under this category are:
3.0 - Float Values: What Are They?
A float value (Or Floating Point) is a static numeric string used in programming to set a value for whatever purpose is correct in context. In the case of CS:GO, the float value of an item determines the amount of wear it has (relative to the pattern seed's wear placement.) Basically, higher float skins have worse wears (Battle-Scarred through Field-Tested) and lower float skins have better wears (Field-Tested through Factory New.)
The Float ranges for items are as follows:
3.1 - Float Values and Knives
Float ranges vary on every skin in the game. It's noteworthy that on the Karambit, the pattern is just as important as the wear, as you can get 0.04 corners that look better then 0.000x ones.
Many knives have a minimum float of 0.06, which makes Factory New extremely rare, since skins have a bell curve on condition (making Field-Tested much more common then Factory New and Very Battle-Scarred)
As you can see, most of the knives with Custom paint finishes all have a 0.06-0.80 float range, making FN equally rare on all of them. Fades are uncommon in minimal wear, but not as rare as a FN Crimson web.
Rust coat and slaughter are the only knives that don't follow the trope.
3.2 - Float Values and Skins
Skins float ranges are determined by their creators.
The only skins that have 0.06 min floats are usually valve-made skins (such as fire serpent, safari mesh, etc.) and most other skins are usually 0.00x - 1.00.
Notable exceptions are AWP/M4 Asiimov (0.18 - 1.00) and Galil Chatterbox (0.35 - 1.00.)
4.0 - Key Trading 101
Keys are the universal currency of the Counter-Strike economy. So how exactly do they work?
If your item is regularly listed on the steam market (and doesn't have any special stickers/patterns), then the typical way to list it is to use SteamAnalyst's averages, and multiplying them by 0.80-0.90 depending on the item's desirability. 0.8 is 80%, which is usually considered a quicksell. 85%-90% are considered quicksells by some and normal prices by others. Note that no item should sell for 100% of steamanalyst if it has no special traits, unless the person wants the item very fast.
4.1 - High Tier Key Trading
For items over 130 keys, the most common thing to do is to look on Reddit (or lounge, depending on your style) and find similarly listed items that actually sold at that price recently. These are the community's agreed prices on these items. If you're using items that are regularly listed on the steam community market to trade for high tier items, then you will need to use the 80-90% averages as explained above.
4.2 - Key Prices
When buying keys with real cash, the price for you depends on several factors.
The Price for keys varies depending on these factors. Basically, the more reputable you are, the easier it is to get cheaper keys (Via Bitcoin rates are usually $1.8-$2.0). This completely depends on the above factors though.
5.0 - Souvenir Items 101
Souvenir items are items that were dropped from Souvenir packages, which were dropped from Valve-Sponsored Counter-Strike: Global Offensive Majors. These are all of the majors that have happened so far:
5.1 - Which Stickers Add Value?
This is a debatable subject.
Stickers based on rarity (Rarest to Most common):
In the latest two 2015 tournaments, signature stickers were added, and some of these add significant value to guns. These are the stickers that add the most value.
Most other signature stickers don't add significant value. These are just the most noteworthy ones.
6.0 - Stickers on Guns
Up until mid 2015, stickers adding value to guns was considered to be a joke by the general trading community. Once the Katowice 2014 stickers skyrocketed, people realized that the look was actually worth paying for, and Kato 14 collectors started to grow. Now, stickers are considered to be an important part of the trading meta if their value is > 10 keys.
6.1 - Calculating Sticker Values
Before anything else, check these factors:
Unfortunately, the price from stickers varies too greatly based on these factors as well as trivial things such as StatTrak and all of that, so I will not be adding back the general pricing.
7.0 - Trading FAQs
Q. What are steam levels and why do they matter?
Steam levels are a level (ofc) that is determined based on the number of badges a user possesses. Each badge is worth 100 XP (with a few exceptions) and they cost money to craft (usually). High steam levels have spent considerable amounts of time & money, and usually don't want to risk their high level account as it is hard to replicate. This does not mean that someone with say a level 300 account isn't scamming, but it is much less likely for someone with a steam level > 200 to scam then someone with say a 50 level. (Though there are scammers and legit dealers at all levels.)
Q. I got scammed, what do I do?
Report it to Steam Support and on the Steamrep Forums & Partner communities. GoTrade itself is a great place to report scammers.
Q. Why are Katowice Stickers and some souvenirs so expensive?
Simply because of the fact that they are from a time when CS was newer and less popular, so there is a small supply of them.
Q. Why do traders pay so much just for a certain float or pattern?
Because of the rarity, uniqueness, and look.
Q. How do I get started on cash trading?
The best way to get started on cash trading is to deal with well known traders in small amounts to build a rep.
That's the end of the guide (For now). If there is anything that I should add to it, please let me know as I will be expanding it in the future. It took a considerable amount of time to make this, so I would very much appreciate your feedback!!

Fellow Lumenatis: Can I get some feedback on our Stellar based gaming project?

For the entirety of my life, I have always loved video games. No matter how bad things got, I knew that I could always switch on my Xbox and be completely immersed in a different world. One where I felt like I was in control and that I actually mattered. It was a way for me to cope with a sometimes difficult reality while also bonding with people from all over the world.
Unfortunately, as many gamers know, there comes a time where you have to wrap up the controllers and go make a living. More often than not, you end up in the rat race dedicating a large portion of your life working a job you despise.
With the invention of blockchain technology, we saw an opportunity to completely shift the paradigm. For the first time ever, you could now create your own value system where people from all over the world could bond on a common set of values. Regardless of their nationality or governmental regime, anyone with an internet connection can now participate in this economic revolution.
So that's what were doing with Bbuck. We want every gamer around the world to know that what they do matters. That the effort they put into the digital world can now produce real, tangible value.
The State of the Industry
As it currently stands, only the top 1% of gamers are able to monetize their gaming efforts either from competition, sponsorship, or advertising. In an attempt to maintain value for their time, Gamers have created entire peer to peer economies from things like skins in CSGO. As users earn skins through the game Counter Strike Global offensive, they are able to transfer them over to third party sites and trade them with other players. Bbuck will provide a social currency that will serve as an alternative to the skin system that gamers are currently accustomed to. Bbuck will serve as a trading and reputation mechanism that can be applied across all video games regardless of the platform or genre. This has drastic improvements over the other value systems that games have developed for their users (skins, points, currencies, etc).
Simulated Mining
Value, as it has been represented in every currency ever created, is essentially a reward that's distributed by a greater societal structure. The more you contribute to that structure (going to work, creating a business, investing, etc.) the more of that reward you receive in compensation. Since mining is crucial to establishing value in a decentralized networks reward system (Bitcoin in the Bitcoin network, Ether in the Ethereum network, etc.) and since Stellar doesn't utilize mining to establish the Lumens value, Bbuck has created a way to simulate that process as a means of establishing value with its token. In traditional mining, all the computers that participate on the network are also the ones that lend their computing power to secure it. Simulated mining, on the other hand, leverages Stellars validators for processing secure transactions but still requires users to solve problems before being rewarded. The problems represented in this case are the synthetic (and highly addictive ones) that video games create. When gamers solve these conflicts (win the game), they receive a Bbuck in return. Of course in the gaming world, winning a match in a game like Mortal Kombat isn't the same as winning a match in Overwatch. To bridge this gap, we will create a standard for what it means to win a video game. We will do this by first only giving out Bbucks to gamers who win a game in the battle royale genre. The reason for this is because out of all the multiplayer video games in existence, Battle Royal games are the most difficult to win on a regular basis. Since the games are also played with the random assemblance of up to 100 people, it is ideal in ensuring a fair distribution of the tokens
Mining Allocation Algorithm
Similar to the federal open market committee, Bbuck will set the mining allocation rate (MAA) for every game that syncs with its platform. This implies a different mining rate for every game that is added on its platform. The primary factors that will go into determining this rate will be the genre of game, the time it takes to win in PvP, the amount of players involved, and several other factors.
Anchors
Anchors represent the video game title that will set the standard for the rest of the genre. Any other game in the genre can opt into the mining pool, but it won't be able to have a higher mining rate than the genres anchor. In order to set the initial standard of an anchor, the battle royal games of Fortnite, PUBG, and Rec room will be chosen. Once a user wins one of these games, starting with Fortnite, they will receive a Bbuck. In order to compensate the anchors for accessing their users wins and keeping the game fair, there will be a fee, similar to Ethereum's gas, that will be paid out to the developers of the game. This gas fee will vary in accordance to the number of users on the developers game as well as the difficulty of the game. While the developers will mine fractional shares of a Bbuck, gamers will always receive a full Bbuck in their account (assuming they’ve won a battle royal game). Because the value of the Bbucks are directly correlated with the difficulty of the game, anchoring games would be heavily incentivized to keep their games fair.
Branches
Branches encompass every other game that isn't an anchor. Branches will be any game that competes in the same genre (Street Fighter and Mortal Kombat for instance). One of the benefits that branches would create for users is the possibility of mining Bbucks in games that gamers might be better at playing. For instance, gamers might not be as good at Street Fighter as they are Mortal Kombat but with branches, they will have the choice to mine from both. A complicated economic formula will be created to ensure that the mining allocation rate is fair. This formula will be developed by expert economists and mathematicians in the future iterations of Bbuck. For the time being, a basic formula for this would take into consideration the time it takes to win a branch game divided by the time it takes to win in the anchor game. Nearly every game in a genre will be chosen as a branch.
Utility driving features
Gamers will use Bbuck for 3 different reasons.
1.) Bet on themselves or others in games of skill
We will leverage the video games API key (most of which are public) in order to determine the winner of a match. Staked matches will only work when 2 players of a similar skill are registered users of Bbuck. We will facilitate a simple Stellar smart contract to facilitate a trustless trade between the two parties.
2.) Product redemption for gaming related product
Similar to how Chuck E. Cheeses uses tickets as a medium of exchange for a stuffed teddy bear, we plan on doing something similar. This would encourage at least a portion of our users to save of their tokens which would reduce the supply.
3.) Cash out to your local currency
Because buying your coffee the next morning is important.

If you made it this far in the post, then thanks for reading. Theres a lot more to this but these are the main value propositions of our platform. Were going to be launching out beta by April so Id love to collect any feedback you guys may have before we do!
P.S. We believe in eating our own dog food so we will not be doing an ICO. We are doing an equity crowdfunding round though so feel free to DM me if your interested in that.

Got my Card today, here is some Feedback and an idea!

First of all, I was super excited to get the card, it was something that I was looking for since early september.
Feedback about the IOS APP
About the card itself and my idea:
I know this isn't promoted or mentioned anywhere, but my idea was, that I should be able to use my card online aswell since it should be the same as a visa prepaid card. But I wasn't able to buy something in the blizzard store, and not able to buy something on amazon with it.
I know that this might be disabled because of refund-issues that aren't solved yet, but I think you really should enable this option aswell. it is 2017, people spend way more money on virtual garbage (CSGO-Skins / Hearthstone Cards / BF2 micro transactions) in comparison to grocery.
Just my 2c. Tomorrow I will try to use it here in a local store and make a video of it! It should really help us to grow if we flood youtube with videos of how we spend bitcoin without a struggle to buy stuff in a supermarket!
PS: Ordered: 08. Sept, Received: 27. Nov

Problem with binds in autoexec

I've recently decided to go hard in CSGO, I'm gonna specifically train my aim, learn callouts, and all that jazz. Part of that is setting up an autoexec and such. And I've downloaded and modified a fairly well laid out one, but the problem I'm running into is the console is saying there are a few unknown commands.
One of which is crucial and also bullshit that it's unknown.
I'm trying to bind ; to switch to a flashbang grenade. I know the command is use weapon_flashbang, and I know how to bind a key, and it's written in my autoexec, too, it just isn't working. I've got hegrenade for frag, smokegrenade for smoke, incgrenade and molotov for fire, and when I type the direct command into console for the flashbang, it works.
Just for some reason, it doesn't work in my autoexec. And yes, I replace the quotes with quotes, made sure of spelling, spacing, all that stuff. It works in console, but not in the cfg. It defaults to "unknown command "use weapon_flashbang"
Honestly, I'd ideally just have these buttons THROW the damn things, y'know? But, I'd at least like to be able to switch to them without grenade cycling or scrolling, since I'm gonna use mwheelup and mwheeldown for primary/secondary, and Q for knife.
and if you're asking why I have a weird ass button for all of this, it's because a G502 proteus core can't just call all of its buttons "mouse4" and so on. They have to have a dumbass standard function, be bound to a key, or be bound to a macro. Frustrating.... Anyway, here's my whole config. I'd definitely like some more pointers, and for you guys to point out any other flaws I'm missing.

20 years old with gambling addiction and insane debt...

Hello,
Using a throwaway just to let you guys know. Also English is not primary language, so sorry for grammar and vocab in advance.
Anyways,
Here is my story:
I was first introduced to gambling at the age of 16, I was still high school at the time, the type of gambling I was doing at the time was through a video game called Counter Strike Global Offensive, where I would put my skins, choose a team, if they win, I get my skins back and another poor soul's skins, this is really what got me into it, and at that age it is very lethal. I was only betting around $5 to $10 per game and wasn't anything big. Through out that time they introduced a CSGO Poker, where same idea you use your in game skins, but this time, we played poker with the goal of cashing out big.
Shortly after, all of the gambling sites close down, but my addiction was still there, however, their was no physical way for me to gamble and I did not have any other interest in other sites or sports. 2 years later, a friend of mine messages me and tells me that their is a new method of gambling on CSGO, but instead of skins we use Bitcoin, this was the first instance where real money started coming into the equation. I go ahead and cash out my remaining skins and convert them to bitcoin and start betting on CSGO again, shortly after, it wasn't only CSGO I was betting on, I touched every sport in the book, NBA, MLB, NFL, hockey, soccer. Every single sport, when I first started I had the best run and beginners luck a 18 year old boy could have at the time. I believe I won around $5000 worth of money, and I bought a gaming monitor and other useless stuff, and when my parents told me what I did, this was my first lie regarding the matter and I told them I was doing stocks and making profit.
Do note, we come from a culture where gambling is not allowed, so I could not tell them I was making profit from gambling, because they would shut me down and since I just came fresh of $5000 to my name and me being 18, I thought I could make a million, so I never told them. Literally 1 week after, I catch a bad streak and some rage and I end up losing the whole $5000 that I made. Really at the point it was over for me, I was way too hooked to gambling that I thought I must buy in again and try to get it all back.
That attempt failed and so was the next after and the next after. I literally lost around $10,000 worth of money, before you guys get ideas of where I got so much money, do note that my Dad trusts me as his older son to have my own bank account, and I already had a couple of thousands from my college financial aid and money saved from previous jobs so I was quickly down 10 grand.
Once I was down such amount of money, I did not really have any more money to spend, so what I end up doing, biggest mistake of my life, I move on to credit, I open a credit line in my bank for about $1000 and of course I exhausted it and lost it all, so I open up Paypal and start credit through there. Paypal gives me a line of about $1000 to $3000, don't really remember the exact amount, but I exhausted that also, however, Paypal just kept increasing my credit line because they kept seeing that I was using it all the way, that they give me a $9000+ credit line, and I ended up exhausting that as well.
Here I am in my 19 year old with around $20,000 down the drain, about $10,000 is credit that I have to payback. What do you think I do at this stage? I dive even more... I was so disgusted with myself, I convince my parents to hand me over money they have saved for me and I lie and tell them I will invest , and they trusted me so much at the time they gave me around $8000 of my money, and $10,000 of their own money. I go ahead and invest their 10 grand into an S&P 500 bond, and take the $8000 they gave me and I go gamble with it... Boom $8000 down the drain. Now I am $28,000 down and Paypal and my bank are coming to collect their monthly payments. So I end up using my parent's 10 grand to pay off for my credits. As soon as I touched their money without letting them know thats when I reached the point of no return. I end up using whatever of that 10 grand left after the credits and start gambling with it, and boom that is gone too.
Here I am writing to Reddit not knowing what the fuck to do with -$38,000 worth of money spent on gambling and $10,000 of credit that I still have to pay. I told my parents a lie that the 10 grand I put for them was on hold for 1 year and they went with it, and in 2 months from today that 1 year is up and I have to pay them their money. I know their is no way I could get that money, not even if I work, so I don't know what I should do at this point.
I tried many times to talk with them, but I always get scared and my mouth becomes dry, because I don't know whether they will help me, never look at me the same or kick me out. I thought about different ways to end my life that were painless, but never thought I was going to actually do that, even now I will never suicide, but the thought has crossed my mind a couple of times when I lost big.
I know my parents have about another $15,000 saved for me, I was hoping to talk with them and convince them to help me use that to pay off Paypal and my bank credits and get a job so I can start earning the money back, but I am just so scared they won't reason and just kick me out, I love my family and my siblings and I don't want that to happen, however, in 2 months time I will be forced to make a big decision.
During this time I cut out all of my social life, I don't workout anymore, I don't study, I don't even go out of my room, I just sit there and play video games to forget the pain. My parents keep telling me to get a job and to get out of my room, but I just can't tell them what I am going through. All my grades started to fall and I am barley passing my college classes with Cs.
Any advice, help is appreciated and if you read the whole thing, then I thank you very much.

[PSA] Flux's guide to CS:GO trading and how to do other things good too.

Hello /globaloffensivetrade,
While I am fairly new to the cs:go trading scene, I have a fair amount of past experience TF2 trading, as well as a few other games, and thus have learnt through a bit of luck and experience how to make profit. I get asked questions multiple times a day about some of these trading basics, and you guys seemed quite keen, so I've decided to write this guide. I spent a lot of time and effort on this, so I would appreciate your feedback and feel free to point out any obvious mistakes. If nothing else, read the bolded and italicised parts.
About me:
I've been trading in cs:go for about 3-4 months now, and used to trade heavily in TF2 before cashing out my money and investing it into csgo. I've probably put in around ~$1500 from that and have cashed out about $15000, and still have a [fairly decent inventory](#). Before we get to the part on how I did this, we need to start from the beginning.
Introduction:
When starting to trade, it is a good idea to have an idea what you want. Whether you want to get a particular skin or knife, or earn a living, or just have fun will direct how you might want to trade. I personally trade for fun, but as it turns out making a profit can be quite fun. There is already a good guide to the basics of trading here, and I will try not to reiterate this, but instead explain some more practical details. I recommend you read this if you are completely new to csgo/trading.
Some 'tools' of the trade:
These are sites or tools which are handy to bookmark, check regularly or use.
Trading sites:
Everybody knows Csgo lounge or Csgl, and that it can be quite the hive of scumbag and villany, however due to its high traffic flow, is probably one of the best media to trade.
(Will add more here if I discover more good trading sites)
Pricing Sites:
For most items that the average trader deals with, the price can be looked up quite well at www.steamanalyst.com. Now it is important to know that this is the 'market price' and is not the same as its cash value. When dealing with the steam marketplace, keys take a value of $2.5 USD, and thus the price of skins in keys is their market price / 2.5. Keys are the primary currency of csgo trading and are known as 'pure' offers. Cash value of items is their key value x $1.8-1.9. Offering a 5 key skin is not the same as offering 5 keys as a 5 dollar note isn't the same as 5 dollars worth of groceries. Other sites such as csgo stash also has similar information.
Pricing for items above market price requires some knowledge and experience. People such as elowynoceania have setup a steam group to price check some of these items and has also written a rough price list found here. A handful of people on this subreddit are also experience in price checking (and I will add a list here of any who are willing; send me a message).
Price checkers (with specialty):
**It seems that most people I've listed have stopped price checking. If you are willing to help, please pm me with your steamURL and/or specialty with regards to price checking.
Pricing for knives and skins can vary on their look, even skins of the same type with the same condition may be worth very different. And somewhat strangely, prices of identically looking skins/knives can be very different if they have different conditions.
Browser extensions:
This list was compiled by etherfast here, but I'll copy paste it for convenience. These are incredibly helpful and have streamlined my trading experience, saving me a lot of time and effort.
While I get these two nice weeks off, I thought about putting some time into helping you guys improve your trading experience.
Before I make my list, I want to stress this out that these are mostly for Chrome users. If you have no reason not to switch to Chrome, you should do it. Some of the extensions have Firefox versions as well, but not all of them.
1. Enhanced Steam
This is a nice extension that isn't necessarily related to trading, but it enhances your Steam experience. This is by far the most complex Steam extension, and the list of features is endless
2. Lounge Companion (Dota 2 & CS:GO) No longer allowed on csgl
This will make your CSGL experience better, by allowing you to price check items on the fly and helping you bet easier.
3. Reddit Enhancement Suite
This is well known and it will improve your Reddit Experience and once you try it, you won't be able to live without it. Once again, the features are endless.
4. Reddit Trading Flair Linker Enhanced
This extends people's flairs when you browse the subreddit. It's really nice because it gives you a clickable Steam link, points out any privacy/VAC Bans/Trade bans and tells you if the person is online or playing anything.
5. Steam Community SteamRep Integration
This will highlight profiles banned on SteamRep for you. It doesn't take into account the pending reports, so you might want to do that check yourself. But when that box turns red, you know it's a good warning sign.
6. Steam item search between friends.
This helps you find that specific friend of yours that has that nice Bayonet you want. It loads all of your friends' inventories locally and it makes them searchable. It takes a bit of time to preload, but it's a good alternative to searching through inventories yourself.
7. Decline Unavailable Trade Offers (credit to hohchu, and more)
This helps you dismiss that annoying green envelope that sticks to you when a trade offer is unavailable.
How to start trading?
Now you've bookmarked all those sites I've linked, and read the guides and downloaded all the plugins, what now? Well first in any business, you need to invest something in order to make something, there is no two ways about it. A decent investment (at least $100) will allow you to start trading decently. I recommend the best route to do this is by buying keys off people who are reputable on this subreddit, who sell for around $1.8-2. This is best done via paypal, and will be initially a slow, difficult process as you will have no reputation or rep at this point. You may even want to buy keys off the steam store, however note that these may not be immediately tradeable depending on your payment method. Once you have the keys, look around on the subreddit, csgl, play the game and generally immerse yourself in the community. This will give you some idea of what things are valuable and demanded. Skins which look nice are generally worth more than skins that aren't as nice. Betting skins, such as the AK Redline FT, AWP Asiimov FT, etc tend to be easier to sell just before a tournament, and easier to buy just after.
Once you have a good grasp of what is valued, start making a few trades. Add or message people and offer your keys on their items, and then if they say yes, try selling it for a bit more and voila you have just made your first bit of profit. Now I will go much further in depth later on, but this is the gist of it.
How to gain reputation?
It can be very difficult to gain rep as a beginning trader. There is the catch-22 where people won't sell you things for cash because you don't have rep, and thus you can't get any rep. However, it is very possible to get rep if you present yourself right.
Firstly it helps to have a decently set up steam account. Private profiles are strongly discouraged and most people won't even add you. Private inventories may also be an issue to people. Having an older account and/or a steam level above 2-3 will also make things a bit smoother, as people realise you have invested some time/effort/money into your steam account. As an example I will use my profile. I have a prominently displayed 6 year of service badge. I am level 33, which means I have invested a fair amount of money into my steam account, and I have a lot of hours of a variety of games as well as a lot of +rep comments on my profile. It may even be good to put the country you are from on your profile, given that eastern european accounts have a relatively high rate of scammers, and some people will be more comfortable trading you if you are in their country. Now on the flipside, lacking these things may lead to suspicion of being a possible scammer.
Secondly, being a generally mature and polite person will build more trust with anybody dealing with you. Being aggressive, abusive or seeming illiterate are red flags which may suggest that you are not a trustworthy person. I personally refuse to accept accidental trade offers which they have put none of my items in, and constantly strive to be an honest trader and to not take advantage of people. Now, these things aren't necessary, but being this kind of person will generally help you overall in trading as well as life.
To get meaningful rep for cash trades, you need to setup a thread that isn't your profile, as your profile is not monitored by anybody but yourself. Accusations of scamming can be deleted and +reps can be faked by friends on your profile. So set up a thread here on the steam group: CS:GO Rep. Feel free to copy my setup here but insert your own information which can be found by searching your steamURL on steamrep. Once you've done that, make sure you get the people you trade with to leave a message regarding the trade on your thread, so keep that link handy (I have mine linked on my steam profile).
Now probably the easiest way to do this is to buy a few keys off the steam market, and then sell them to people who have a lot of rep. You will lose some money initially, but you will gain some all-important rep, and will soon be able to buy keys for cash. Doing multiple small transactions is the best way to build rep initially. Selling a few keys here and there, and buying a few will start to fill out your thread.
How to screen people as potential scammers?
There is already a very helpful guide on how to avoid common scams here and here. The most definitive way to tell somebody is a scammer, is if they've done it before and been reported for it. Before doing ANY trade, search their steamURL in www.steamrep.com. A person who is a scammer will have a red outline and it will say 'banned' and will explain why. People who have an orange border with 'x number of reports filed' are generally scammers as well, and I strongly suggest you do NOT trade with either of these types of people.
For people who are scammers-to-be, red flags include:
  • Impersonating another account
  • Low amount of hours/few games
  • New steam account/low steam level
  • Private profile
  • Private inventory/not valuable
  • Not many comments
  • Russian, Romanian or even Italian, or named laska (sounds racist, but the majority of scammers I've met were either of these)
1:58 AM - laskerZ: razizt guide 0/10
1:59 AM - Horrorshow Flux: hahaha
1:59 AM - laskerZ: I'm hugely offended by it. As an Eastern-European, I DEMAND IT TO BE REMOVED
  • Young, immature (<15 years old) - don't really understand the results of their actions
  • Overly keen, impatient to receive your item, offer to pay more than your buyout
  • Know a lot about how cash trading works without having any rep (though some people may have experience in ebay trades, etc and can be trusted)
  • Suspicious in any way (if it sounds too good to be true, it usually is)
Basically if they don't have much to lose, often they will be more likely to scam. People with established names and profiles and inventories have much more to lose and so can be more trustworthy. If I were ever to scam, my lost reputation would be more costly in the long run than any single deal, not that is my only reason I don't scam, just to mention another, I'm not an asshole.
How to cash trade?
Typically paypal is used in most cash trades, being the most convenient generally. Skrill or BTC (bitcoin) can also be used, but I don't personally have much experience in either of these. Typically how trades are done is the buyer will send a money payment as family and friends and pay any fees to the seller, and once the money is confirmed to be received, the seller will send a trade. This method is still possible to be chargebacked, do not listen to anybody who tells you otherwise. Note some countries don't have this option. A middleman can be used, who can be found here, and will hold on to the item before the buyer pays, and will only trade to the buyer once they confirm the seller has received the money. This prevents direct scams, but offers no protection for chargebacks. Chargebacks are the main reason I require people to have rep before dealing in cash with them.
How to setup a neat table for a reddit post?
Easy, just copy what I've done here:
|Type|Skin|Wear|Comment/Screenshots|Current Offer|Buyout|
|:----------|:----------|:----------|:----------|:----------|:-------|:-------|
|Knife|Butterfly Night|FT|Clean looking|None|95k
Now for the big buck item: How to make profit?
The secret to profit is high volume, small profit trades. I will outline how my strategy works below, but it is not necessary to read to make profit, skimming the paragraphs and reading the TL;DR at the bottom should be sufficient. The classic 'buy low, sell high' advice is only partially true. I see so many people trying to sell high and never getting any trades. It really should be 'buy low, sell market'.
Buying items:
It is important to understand a sellers' psychology, in order to understand how to get good deals. First of all you have to buy an item. You do this by exposing yourself to the market as long as possible to find good deals. Post on multiple cs:go/reddit trades, frequently browsing the new section. If you are to offer on a trade, if you are paying pure keys, feel free to offer a little bit less than market price or their buyout (yet still reasonable), so there is a profit margin for you. If you do it in the right manner, more often than not, people are often flexible enough to accept their price, since a reasonable guy with a reasonable price is a good person to trade with. If you offer skins, people more often than not will not value skin offers as highly as keys (though there are exceptions).
Selling items for a profit:
Note that this is more of an explanation of maximum profit, and is a little bit unnecessary to actually profit.
When selling an item you need to understand buyer's psychology and some basic statistics (OH NO THE HORROR!). They want to do either of two things with the item: Use it it or sell it, roughly I'd say the proportions respectively of these people are 1:4. When I say they want to use the item, I mean usually they want to play with it. Thus they are willing to pay full price (FP) or a little bit more (FP + 1 arbitrary unit). The arbitrary unit (AU) can be anything; a dollar, a key, etc and is tied to the value of the item, often around 5%. It is basically your profit margin for most items. Occasionally users will be willing to pay slightly higher than full price, but it isn't enough to rely on the small proportion who do for most of your profits.
Then there are those looking for a profit. Thus they will often be paying a low price (FP - 2 ~ FP - 1). If you have bought it for fairly cheap (=< FP - 2) then you can easily flip it to these people for FP - 1 for at least an AU profit. What price you bought it for may determine whether or not you sell to a specific type of buyer. If you paid full price (FP) then you price your item at > FP + 1 and search for the small proportion of people who are willing to pay more. I have found that the mean price of items if you pay keys is FP - 1, with a standard deviation of 1 AU. I found it optimal to focus on buying items at the price of FP - 1 ~ FP - 2. Thus at the highest range of your buying, you make a profit from 20% of the population, and at the lower end you make it from almost 100% of the population. Of course these numbers are highly speculative.
Here's a graphical explanation for what I am saying. This graph represents roughly the market for items. I am suggesting that you buy at FP - 1 and Sell at FP for maximal consistent profit, as in this picture, where the pink is your sweet sweet profit, basically the crux of my entire guide, not only this is profitable, it is very stable and consistent and safe profits (with the notable exception of new items, which don't have a fixed FP).
TLDR; Buy highly demanded items for under the market price, and sell for market price or slightly below for maximum profit/time.
Cutting your losses/How to get unstuck as a trader?
Sometimes you will find yourself with an item which should be worth x, but you aren't getting offers near it. Maybe you got ripped off, or it has suddenly dropped in price. This is when you cut your losses. Moping over your loss won't help you earn more and will keep you stuck at your current value. Don't be too attached to your items, unless you have already gotten your 'dream knife', so why would you even be reading this :P?
Profit is based exponentially on what you have, i.e. the more you have, the more you profit you make. Thus it is often better to quickly sell some items in order to increase your total currency value (even at a loss of your theoretical currency/market value) as having currency allows you to make more profit than that damn StatTrak Butterfly Boreal Forest FT. You should try and sell at FP - 2, or sell it on the market.
The potential future profit will eventually cover the losses incurred by this trade. This ensures a smooth flow of items in and out of your inventory, allowing for maximum profit.
Selling Strategies:
Generally skins are easier to sell, but have smaller profit margins, and knives are more profitable, but move a lot slower. Hence I will explain how I sell items, and recommend you do the same. Basically lets say you have some skins and knives. What your goal should be, if you want to make profit, is to eventually convert all these skins and knives into currency like keys or cash. How you do this is to downgrade. Downgrading is trading for slightly less desirable/valuable items alongside currency.
What would be optimal is that someone will offer your buyout in keys, however this rarely happens (and is often leading to a scam attempt), so you need to take a relatively big item, and break it down into smallemore liquid bits. When you are offered items, take an offer that is similar in value if it has highly liquid items (such as betting skins, keys, vanilla knives, cheap 'entry level' knives around ~20-30k) over an 'overpay' offer of something that is hard to sell (stat-trak low tier knives, battle-scarred high tier knives, case hardeneds). It is often easier to sell two low-mid tier knives than one high tier knife.
People who trade at a lower level, I suggest you upgrade, like trade two $1.25 skins for $2.50 one, as then you can trade for a key and possibly buy a $3 item, etc. The way I actually see it is like nuclear fusion/fission, just an analogy for you physics and chem nerds :3. Elements which are heavy release energy when split by fission (trade expensive items into multiple cheaper items), and elemental which are light, gain energy by fusion (trade a few cheap items into a reasonable item).
When trading an item with a high variance in price, you want to be moving towards either end. I'll give an example. A Karambit Fade FN with 60% purple/40% pink goes for around 250k. This is highly demanded as it's the cheapest you can get of the item. A Kara Fade with 90% Pink/10% yellow goes for ~500 keys and is also highly demanded as it's the best you can get. So if you had a Kara Fade 80/15/5 (~320k), you would want to downgrade to a 60/40 + 70 keys and if you had a 90/7/3 (~450k) you would want to upgrade to a 90/10. This concept mainly applies for fades, but can also be used in other patterns.
Conclusion:
Damn I just wrote that in one sitting, start to finish. If only I had the motivation for my uni work. Feel free to share this guide with your friends and fellow traders.
Peace,
