Steam trading is a build-in feature to buy and sell skins and etc with other players. Steam takes a little percent of the earning from the skins but that’s it. Somebody probably thinks now that why should I buy skins when I can get them from boxes. You can do that but it cost 2 euro for a key to open them, and most of the skins are only worth 0,5 or lover. That’s why it’s better to just buy the skins you like. The prices go up and down but that mostly depends on which skin it is.
