    if the keys price keep raising how much will be the ref price?

    If refined gets devalued to that point, the game's economy won't crash. Instead, we will see a near-complete separation between the refined market and the key market. Trading will continue as normal, but people won't take metal for their keys anymore, and we'd see things like ToD tickets, paints, and Strange Parts used for pocket change instead. Also, the amount of people that buy and sell refined for cash is infinitesimally smaller than those that buy and sell keys. Even if you bought every refined on the cash market right now and spent it all on keys, you'll have made no noticeable dent in the key market.

    Is marketplace.tf trying to raise key prices ?

    Marketplace goes off backpack.tf price for keys and refined. Keys just went up, but they are staying in the same price in USD, so it looks like it’s at a discount. This may be a hint saying that refined is high or keys are inflated. Keys are 52 refined, refined is 4 cents: 52 x .04 = $2.08 per key, which at 1.81 per key, is about 13% off. If refined was 3-4 cents instead of 4, 52x.035 would make keys $1.82, a price tag we are familiar with.

    Key Price Suggestions: WTH?

    When it comes to key suggestions, most of them come out the person's ass. Keys wind up receiving tons of suggestions, but they're almost always have little to no evidence to back them up, and are summarily closed. While the price does need to be raised at this point, people aren't giving good suggestions for it. The price of keys isn't rising, it's the value of refined that's dropping.

    How Is Key Price Determined?

    By just looking at the numbers, you're missing one important thing: There is more demand for a key then there is for the amount of refined it takes to get a key. It's not like asking a person "Would you like a $100 bill or 5 $20 bills", but more like asking "Would you like a $100 bill or 400 common Pokemon cards?" Once a person is trading at the key-level economy instead of the refined economy, they don't want refined anymore; It becomes pocket change that takes up way too much space for it to be worth holding on to. Also, the ratio of keys to refined are always in flux as keys leave the market due to unboxing almost as fast as they enter. Refined on the other hand, just keeps entering the market, but doesn't leave, as there is no good refined sink. If there was an in-game incentive again to spend and use refined (like we've seen with the Chemistry Sets and Bread Boxes in the past), we'd see an increase in value of refined, but as it stands now, there's just no use for it in-game anymore.

    Question regarding possible scam

    After "logging in" to a phishing website your Steam account is indeed compromised but you don't have to "lock" it. Just change your Steam password and revoke Steam API Key as described here: https://forums.steamrep.com/pages/hijacking/ https://marketplace.tf/blog/posts/YHLZOB

I hope this will cause their steam API keys to get banned for attempting too many logins or something. This is 100% definitely a scam site.

    Inventory refresh API Help

    Hello forums! I'm mostly looking at the API for inventory refresh, but I'm having trouble getting it to work. https://backpack.tf/api/index.html#/inventory/App\Controllers\API\Client\InventoryAPI::refresh I've tried substituting {steamid} with my own steamID64, but it returns the 401 error, "Missing authorization header". I've tried sending it my key and token, but still returns the same error and message. The reason I need backpack.tf to refresh my inventory is because when I get an item that I didn't own before and try to sell it, it will return "Invalid item" and will not create a listing to sell said item. (BP.tf still thinks the item doesn't belong to me) However, when I manually refresh my inventory from my profile page, I can create the listing. I was wondering if anyone knows what I'm doing wrong? Thanks!

    White Energy Scout Hat Fashion Advice

    IMO the Baker Boy looks the best. It isnt too bulky looking compared to the other hats and it pairs well with the Bonk boy (with a more 50's comic book aesthetic)

    Why do buyers go negative?

    why block legitimate traders? this only hinders your chance of getting deals in the future. why do this instead of just saying you're not interested and declining? your block list is humongous and im pretty sure the majority of that is legitimate traders, given I dont have a tenth of that number and i block all scammers i encounter. nobody is EVER obligated to answer any questions the other has in a trade. if you are offering someone and you ask them what their offer is, that assumes that they had an offer in the first place. if they offer you, and they dont give you a price, simply tell them what you are willing to sell for and they will negotiate from there. blocking is unreasonable and leads only to you getting a lack of trades in the future.

    Do you use your trading career on your resume?

    God no. As someone who actually deals with hiring, this would do more harm than good. It'd be like putting "Really good at trading Pokemon cards" or "Got all achievements in Dark Souls" on there. You may be proud of it, but it'll be seen as worthless padding or poor prioritization. If you're really insecure about your lack of other relevant experience, you could list that time as an Online Reseller. but I'd only really do that if there was a significant gap between jobs that didn't have a better explanation (like going back to school or taking care of family).

    Open discussion on rules for trading with scammers (Part 2)

    I'm late to the party, and I super pushed for the last change to make rules more lenient. Sorry I TL;DR'd on most of the pages of comments, so what I'm saying may have already been said I'm with Harry on this one - don't make the rules more lenient than they already are. Yes you aren't the police, and yes purchasing stolen goods unknowingly is not a crime but proving knowingly purchasing stolen goods is difficult enough Removing this rule would just open the flood gates to 1. Previously stolen goods which had been sitting in scammer backpacks to freely enter the market and money to be made by essentially thieves 2. Increase the likelihood of desperate legitimate traders to start stealing, since they can now apparently sell their stolen goods with less difficulty There has to be some barricade to stealing to disincentivise it

    Open discussion on rules for trading with scammers (Part 2)

    There's already tons of people who purposely trade with scammers abusing benefit of the doubt, removing the rule will just flood the market with stolen goods. As an anecdote, I've heard once or twice people on Vatican/Firepowered bragging about a nice buy they got from a scammer "because it was only a day ban". Don't think for a second 90% of these profit traders wouldn't do it all the time if they could. The rules are fair the way they are now in terms of legitimate accidental buying; making it more lenient would just serve to cause problems at this point

    if the keys price keep raising how much will be the ref price?

    I thought for almost a year, but why can't valve implement a reward system for competitive, where the winning team members get 1 key each? This will make competitive popular and stop key prices from inflation.
