Because some people bought keys for that lower price and now trying to sell for more.
Speculants...

I want to explain it to you, the price is going higher and higher because of all these russian/brazilian traders. They are selling games from their steam store, (these games are much cheaper, than in other stores) and they get tf2 keys from a trade. Basically what they are doing is buiyng games from steam wallet and trading them for tf2 keys and selling them in the market for a bit of profit. When there was summer sale or winter sale the price went down, because every trader wanted to get rid of his keys as soon as possible to get new steam walltet funds. Thats simple: Cheap games -> more buyers -> less keyprice. I thing the price will possibly grow up to a maximum of 1.90€ or 2.40$ or sth like that. The fact that the tf2 economy is also is also playing a big role. I hope you understood everything right despite my bad english!

Thank the card-stealing russians for the low key prices early on. Without them, this would have happened much earlier.

I have a crazy idea,
Make some alt accounts, then make trades between the alt accounts with a key for 2.33, doing that a bunch of times you should head to backpack.tf and suggest lowering the price to 2.33

Three most likely causes:

A.) backpack.tf
B.) Scammers
C.) BCUZ NUBDY LIEK REF OLOLOLOL

There is a guide that explains it very good with detailed examples.
Thats where I learned about Espanstain's economy (was very unexpected. especially now im cactus) Pff, key prices will go up a ton at Christmas.

this has nothing to do with metal; valve is cracking down on currency conversion errors so people in south america/europe cant buy them for a huge discount anymore
