    Steam has introduced a new meta-currency for users to earn, called Points. Whenever a user buys a game, DLC, Valve hardware, application, soundtrack, or in-game items, they will earn 100 Points per U.S. dollar spent.

    Users can spend Points on a variety of things through Steam, including animated avatars, backgrounds for their shop, and animated chat emoticons. They can also reward other users for useful Workshop items or well-written Steam reviewers by donating their Points.

    Valve says that the Points Shop is “here to stay”, and any bonuses unlocked through Points are permanent additions to a user’s profile. However, items purchased via Points cannot be sold via the marketplace or traded.
