How did the earbud cosmetic become a fully fledged currency?

Earbuds were around before australiums. They were finite, but plentiful enough to be a currency because they were distributed to anyone who had TF2 on iOS, and people liked the little music icons so they had value outside of being a currency. Similar deal with maxes and bill's hats.

Way back you only had 8 (later on a few more) slots for trades, so some item where used like 1, 20 or 100 dollar bill notes

 

Once people where able to send hundreds of keys via tradeoffers these items became useless and dropped to the cosmetic value

i wasn't around back then but always heard about earbuds and how they were the standard currency etc etc

 

finally got a pair a few months ago and i honestly really really like them as a cosmetic item

 

very elegant with a subtle nice effect (the notes) . not invasive at all , not an eyesore

 

much better than satan's giant flaming purple ballsack dancing on top of your head aka how i feel about most regular effects 🫡

Well, that was a joke, I didn't mean it in a rude way.  Sorry if it offended you.

 

But taste is completely subjective and I really do enjoy my "tacky" effects, and don't care much if you have a negative opinion of me or my effects.
