What do you figure a key is worth in items?

I'm trying to see if I can get some, and I was wondering about how much metal I should acquire before attempting to start trying to find someone.

I was able to trade a key for black/white paint. Not that many hats look good with black or white paint. They might be worth 2 scraps to a reclaimed, maybe. Some people are also desperate for keys that they are willing to trade hats.

So I should maybe wait a while before trying to get some keys? I'm not in any particular rush, and I still need to stockpile crates.

Crates drop often and people wanna crack them open but don't want to pay. You could probably get 2 refined metal or a hat for them.

If you could trade a key for paint, how much does a crate worth?
This is not my signature

A crate is only worth 2-3 weapons.

When did keys become tradeable?

In one of the more recent updates, they made keys tradable, as well as the purchased duel minigames.
