(Part3) People buy a lot of keys in in-game store of csgo from Valve to trade (not only to open cases). The trading community would collapse, key income would go down, there will be a huge outrage, etc. etc....it a complex system and you can't "kill" a part of without affecting other parts

(Part2)The only way they could "kill the monetary value", is by disabling the trading function so that people can't send items to eachother, to bots, etc. But that would crash their own market (steam market), items would lose a large portion of their value on steam market too, since people then know that they can never sell the keys for real dollars (or that it would be very hard). Now, acc. steam TOS , this shouldn't be allowed anyways (real dollar transactions using steam API, etc.), but it is there and more or less tolerated, since it indirectly also increases the income for valve significantly.

(Part1) We already have "steam coins". Its the money on your steam wallet. It is exactly that: steam coins. It just appears as dollars or euros, but once you transfer your real money to your steam wallet, you can't transfer it back through steam and it becomes "steam coins" (they just didn't name it that way, so it appears to you as if you still have real dollars). Now the economy based on real dollar transactions of items outside steam market (including cards, which is based on real dollar value of csgo keys which then can be sold outside steam market for real dollars) is out of valve's control as soon as the trading function is enabled.
