CSGO Skin's New Trading Record Sells FOR $100,000
The skin economy revolves around Counter-Strike: Global Offensive. The Steam market may have multi-million dollar transactions per day based on CSGO skins alone. The price of some of these virtual items is high, while the price of some is absolutely incredible.
It's no secret that some CS: GO skins are literally worth their pixels in gold, but a recent sale of a skin for around $ 100,000 could consider the cake to be the most expensive transaction that breaks the record for the most expensive skins, that was ever sold in CSGO history was created by a souvenir AWP | held Dragon Lore, which cost a whopping $ 61,000 after the Boston Major in January 2018. On this special souvenir skin was a gold sticker from Skadoodle, the Boston Major's MVP, who played in Cloud9, the tournament's winning team.
It's not uncommon for CSGO skin collectors to spend thousands of dollars on fancy dragon studies or gungnir. In fact, it is rare for these skins to drop below a thousand dollars due to their demand and limited availability.
A large number of skins in CS: GO can already make thousands of dollars each due to their rarity or other factors, but none comes close to the insane price that a Chinese collector apparently pays for the StatTrak M4A4 Howl with 4 iBUYPOWER Katowice 2014 stickers Has.
To put things in perspective: The price of a brand new (0.009136963) StatTrak version of the M4A4 Howl (without IBP sticker) is currently around $ 5,180, which is a huge change compared to this version .
According to the well-known CS: GO economist with no pixels on Twitter, the Chinese collector in question spent over $ 100,000 in cash for this extremely rare cosmetic. The collector reportedly wants to sell the skin for $ 130,000, another record in CSGO history for the most valuable skin ever sold.
Previous reports had set the sale price at $ 130,000, but the $ 100,000 that appeared to be actually paid is still more than enough to set the record for the most expensive CS: GO skin ever.
In our CS: GO list of the 20 most expensive CS: GO skins, for example, the souvenir AWP (Dragon Lore) was the top product at $ 19,632.80, which is not even close to the six-digit price for these $ 100,000 StatTrak M4A4 howl.
The reason why it's so expensive compared to other similar skins are the Katowice 2014 iBUYPOWER stickers, which are rare because the player base was smaller at the beginning and fewer people could buy them. With the global appeal of CS: GO, they are among the hottest collectibles on the market.
Who would have thought that such a simple sticker could be worth so much?
This is not to say that your M4A4 Howl skin (if you have one) will eventually be worth that much because this whole situation seems to be a result of the rare stickers that were included and the wild world of Chinese CS: GO Skin trading that could be a different story in itself.
If anything, we can all take away from this $ 100,000 purchase of CS: GO skin: if you have a fairly valuable skin and some fairly valuable stickers, it may be worth sticking to and seeing what you accomplish a little can go down the street instead of just making money right away.
