Popular Russian Streamer Trades CS:GO Skins for $60,000 BMW Car
That is how true gamers do cashless transactions!
It is common knowledge that there are CS:GO skins that hold a really high value and can easily fetch quite a bit of money when traded at the right time to the perfect buyer.
This is exactly what a popular Russian streamer, Vyacheslav "buster" Leont'ev, did to conduct the perfect cashless transaction that fetched him a great-looking BMW worth $60,000 USD (INR 47,52,366).
Buster traded multiple CS:GO skins that were at a combined value of about $57,000 USD (INR 45,14,748), and in exchange got a slick pre-owned BMW E60 that had undergone a lot of modifications.
Famous Twitch streamer from Russia purchases a $60,000 BMW car by trading multiple CS:GO skins
Buster is a popular streamer from Russia who has amassed a following of more than 3.1 million on Twitch and about 2.75 million on YouTube. He might not be a global icon, mostly because he communicates in Russian, but he is a huge gaming personality in his region and creates a lot of unique content for his audience.
Recently, he exchanged multiple CS:GO skins to purchase a pre-owned but modified BMW E60 that was worth $60,000. While it made for great content for his audience, it also goes to show the worth of certain virtual cosmetic items.
Some of the CS:GO skins put up for trade by Buster were as follows,
AWP | Dragon Lore (Field Tested)
AK-47 | Wild Lotus (Minimal Wear)
AK-47 | Gold Arabesque (Factory New)
M4A1-S | Ravager (Factory New | StatTrak)
Desert Eagle | Oceanic Coast (Field Tested)
USP-S | Confirmed Kill (Factory New | StatTrak)
Karambit | Marble Gradient (Factory New)
Motorcycle Gloves | Blood Pressure (Minimal Wear)
Stilleto | Waves (Factory New)
AWP | Gradient (Factory New)
There were a few other skins that were added, taking the whole value of the skins traded to about three million rubles, which is roughly about $50,000.
"It is a gift for only three million rubles," said Buster while sending the the skins across to the person he was purchasing the BMW from.
The buyer went on to confirm the trade and received all the skins while he left behind his stunning BMW E60 that had an all-black exterior and interior theme, along with golden rims on the wheels that added on to the aesthetics of the vehicle.
As far as, real-life CS:GO skin trade goes this is by far one of the most interesting ones out there in public. The buyer coming for a trade in his car and leaving without it, instead bagging multiple cosmetic items whose value might go up with time, sadly the same cannot be said about the four-wheeler.
