Only if the keys are purchased in rapid succession from other traders (Such as new update cases). Otherwise, no, it will not be related to crates being opened.

Short answer: No.

 

Long answer: Nnnooooooooooooooooo.

 

Keys don't have a ton of variation in value, as all keys start out as a $2.49 purchase (or similar in other currencies).

 

Since keys are available in essentially infinite supply from the Mann Co store, there's pretty much a hard cap at $2.49 that they won't exceed no matter what, except maybe some odd situation I'm not thinking of. Even if all the keys in circulation were used by tomorrow, there would be as many as needed still available at 2.49 each.

 

Hype can temporarily drive key values down, but it's generally minor and short-lived. The only real fluctuation you'll see in key value is when it dips for a period as people dump keys to acquire something new, such as special keys for new cases.

 

That's all speaking of SCM or IRL money, though if you meant in relation to in-game items, then meh. Pretty much same answer, except that in-game items are wildly volatile in some cases.

They do occasionally get higher than $2.49 on the SCM , but that's usually because of a combination of taxes and currency conversions making the Mann Co. Store more expensive, but even then, you're looking at about a dime max.
