How Victoria’s Steam Trading Card Platform Is Changing the Trading Card Industry
The Victoria Stock Exchange is poised to release its second Steam trading card system in less than two weeks.
The system is called Steam Trading Cards, and it has been in development for the past two years.
In a statement, Valve said it will be using Steam Trading cards to track trading volumes across its platform.
“Valve will also be working with third-party partners to help facilitate and improve the experience for the Steam trading community,” it said.
“Steam Trading Cards will also allow Valve to track and track the trading activity of millions of users, enabling Valve to continue to build the best possible platform for Steam trading and the wider community.”
Valve said Steam Trading will be available to its users on February 15, 2018.
“We are excited to be working closely with Valve to build an even better platform for the trading community and the millions of players who use Steam to access and interact with other people’s games,” Steam’s VP of business development Paul Simpson said.
The new system is expected to be rolled out to all users within the next two weeks, although it will not be available in the first two weeks of the trading season.
“Our team is working around the clock to bring this new system to life,” Valve said.
“We’ve also begun to implement the Steam Trading system for other major retailers, including Amazon, Walgreens, Best Buy and Target, so we’ll be adding this to our marketplace soon.”
The Steam Trading System was announced at the company’s annual investor call earlier this year.
