Motivation for trading?

It’d be interesting to hear the reasons why you trade in TF2. Do you do it for money, cool hats, etc.?

Personally, I like having fancy effects and australiums. It makes all the pub medics attach themselves to you. Then, once you've had enough of the fancy stuff, you can turn your items into keys, and cash out. So, win win. You pub stomped, and you made some money.

 

Edit: Another thing that motivates me about trading is that you can open crates. I just used one key to open a crate and I got the Damage Dealt part (Buy orders at 4.22 keys easy 3 key profit) 

 

Second edit: I used the three keys to open three more crates. I got two strange appoco fists and a strange warriors spirits. I'm going to game end myself

Personally I have very little motivation for trading. I don't enjoy the game anymore, and I never expected to get this far with trading, but I wouldn't consider trading fun anymore. So I guess my only motivation is money.

>I had no job

>Spent $60 of Xmas money on TF2 stuff on SCM my first year

>Decided to learn how to trade to pay for more, fancier stuff

>Now I've made enough that it finances all my online endeavors

>Even though I'm not as active as I used to be, the passive income for fairly little work still makes this a reasonable side hustle.

>Should have just gotten a job.

 

Edit:

Once I got in to trading for a couple months I did figure out a trade up goal. Get a double spelled max's head for keeps. I own 2 double spelled for keeps now, and have owned many more

Initially started for money because 14 year old me was broke. Then found out that sniping Minecraft ogs turned $0.15 into $300 so I just buy stuff I like really.
