Nearly all CSGO sticker capsules have shown a good long-term return on investment. This has led players to invest thousands of dollars into stickers and tablets to turn a juicy profit, hopefully.
Investing in digital video game items is a new concept, and each CSGO major has seen more sticker sales than the last. The Berlin 2019 major had a record number of sticker sales, and many players voiced the opinion that the Berlin stickers were significantly overbought by investors.
Just by looking at the graph, it’s easy to see how there has been a giant leap in sales for the Berlin 2019 major. The majority of players think the stickers don’t look good, so we can assume most sales were from investors not realizing what they were getting themselves into.
There were 34 different stickers released for Katowice 2014. For Berlin 2019 there were 417. Maaaaaybe we’re getting a little bit oversaturated?TDM_Heyzeus on Twitter
The entire world has been dealing with the Covid-19 outbreak for several months now, and most countries issued stay at home quarantines. This is terrible for almost every individual but is actually positive news to CSGO skins’ economy because the player base tripled during the height of the quarantine.
CSGO sticker and case prices have risen to levels higher than ever before. This rush of investments saved the Berlin 2019 stickers, so those who held their items with iron fists were awarded great profit.
Most investments are currently coming from Chinese Steam accounts filled with specific items. It is common for wealthy Chinese players to add very expensive stickers to their already expensive skins. Chinese people are considered to be more materialistic. This means they often equate overall wealth by the things a person owns.
We believe that stickers and cases are increasing far too fast, which shows several signs of an investing bubble. Most CSGO items have seen the same growth since June 2020, as seen in the chart above.
