Some miscellaneous Items I found. The bronze looks dubious an the Tray looks printed. May be a bargain.
Here is a picture Explanation of the HUGE money that is being generated in E Sports. I will focus on the most popular Game - CSGO - Counterstrike. All this merchandise is CSGO.
One item, just 1 item and there are millions. 44,ooo of this 1 item sold in 24 hours on Steam.
Example of what a skin is.
This is your AK47 without a skin. Plain.
This is skin version of the same gun. With a bloodsport skin.
The cost for this Skin is presently 58 euro.
If you look closely at this gun you can see the Sheriff Sticker on the Butt end of the gun. The cost to buy that sticker is presently.
The Cost for the Sheriff sticker is 21 euro Ask price and 16 euro Sell Price. So just like in the real market a low volume or rare item has a wide Ask and sell price.
People will pay huge money for Skins and stickers. It will boggle your mind how much people will pay for a sticker. This is real money. Stickers like above can sell for a thousand euro. For one sticker, once you buy it you can either keep it as an asset or investment in your Stock holdings and or you can use it by placing it on your weapon of choice and it will be displayed within Game when you character uses that gun but once used it can never be re used or sold.
1 days ago on July 15th someone paid 834 euro for a mouse sport holo sticker.
The digital Art once created is never reproduced so it becomes extremely rare and expensive. When there are only 3 remaining stickers on the market and usually they are a few years old they start to become very valuable.
Here is an example of how the market works and it's massive Volume and Sales.
For high bulk items they will start out cheaper. They will generate huge sales. As you can see 271,542 buy orders were processed in 1 day for 1 Item.
This is an example of how the price for an item escalates as it become more and more rare.
Many Items start out in what are called crates. You can buy the crate cheaper and then buy a key and open the crate. What is inside is of random value. When those crates sell out and become rare then the items themselves will also raise in value. You can see there are 365,115 buy order's presently to buy this crate at 0.47 cents.
So bear in mind as you wait months to sell a Antique Vase for several hundred euro, that in just minutes some kid is buying and selling digital art on steam for hundreds of euro every second. They can sell a sticker in minutes. There is no doubt an interesting trend in emerging E Sports for Digital Art. Of course this art must be controlled, copyright and never re produced.
A billion dollar industry that makes absolutely no sense, where money is spent on materials that are virtual and do not exist and are only contained in their lifetime within a game.
Here is my own Steam Account over the last couple of days.My Market activity .These are how much I buy and sell every day. I might have listed some of these items at a certain sell price months ago and they sell when that item starts to rise in price. I also buy items i think have a good chance of rising in price in the future. Over the last 5 years this market has just grown and grown and seems to keep growing.
Some games of course are dead ends. The Games that will grow are any game that is likely to become a popular E sport game. CSGO is huge with massive Arena's full of people watching LIVE tournaments between Teams from around the world. These are held almost every month now.
You have billions spent every month By the younger generation on Digital Art, and while we read in the newspapers that the Younger generations do not appreciate or have smaller homes and or have lost interest in Antiques, in my opinion this is not true and in fact the complete opposite ( Although smaller residence is a factor) . The younger generation are potentially the biggest market for Asian Art and other Antiquities.
As virtual or ( intangible) Digital Art reaches saturation, and after an upsurge in tangible versions of digital Art which is highly limited. Printed Merchandise, maybe some contemporary modern at furniture. You will have a 2 generations of people that will transition to more tangible items and they will be very quickly find the limitations of Digital copies boring.
These people do like to collect and they do like Art and they will undoubtedly return to the classic form, when this starts to emerge you will see those high prices again well surpassed. Perhaps the movement of people in the future might effect this slightly, I am not sure but uncertainty in Housing and Rental accommodation and weak tenancies contracts or exploitation and so forth will have a negative effect and this is a curve ball that might effect the market for a long time.
I see items like that Japanese Fukagawa Vase soaring in price in less than 20 years as those generations settle and continue their passion for collecting into more real life items.
The Digital Art Market is where all the Young future collectors money is and it is a huge amount of money. Equally important is the volume and demand that brings and it will return to the classic Market in about 15- 20 years. That demand and volume is where it will become exciting.
You're right, I don't think I would like it either but thanks for the explanation as to what it is. I have never heard of it, never even knew things like that existed so I have learnt something new today and you know I always enjoy that! 😀 😎
