One of the largest growing digital markets currently exists on a game platform called Steam. Owned by a company named Valve Software, Steam is a multi-game platform that includes many blockbuster titles such as Counter Strike, Team Fortress 2 and many others. These games have in-game currencies (treasure keys, promotional items, cosmetic items) that have value in the real world that are determined as a part of the vast Steam ecosystem.

This all sounds great, but there is a problem. How does one player find another player willing to exchange items in one game for items from another game? How does this player accurately research the market in order to determine what is a fair exchange? TF2Outpost.com has come up with the solution. The creator of TF2Outpost had the goal of creating a centralized hub to allow players to exchange items between different games as well as advertise potential trades they would like to make. TF2Outpost operates on a subscriber model, generating revenue from customers who enjoy the website enough to pay a monthly subscription. Overall, this website provides a valuable service to the entire community that plays Steam games, while also turning a decent profit.
