    Before our admins start discussing and voting on your application, can you please verify and prove your ownership or affiliation with cs.money?
    To confirm I understand correctly, SteamRep-banned users are automatically banned from your site, and the above warning is displayed on their cs.money profile when someone else visits it, correct?

    Yeah, SteamRep-banned users also banned on CS.MONEY, they can not trade at our platform.

    Sure, I can write to your official twitter from our official twitter, or prove in any other possible way.

    What is the reason for you submitting the application on the account you are doing so? If your intentions were to keep it a secret then the "cat is out of the bag" so to speak.
    You posted here a few months ago with reference to a giveaway on the site, why didn't you inform us after we made the effort to suppress the link/effort so we would know you didn't have any bad intentions? We get those often so we have to act upon them quickly to avoid users getting baited into odd links for whatever reason.

    What does CS Virtual Trade ltd. stand for as in is that a company that was setup for the site that operates in the background?

    Do you plan on adding anything to do with SteamRep or not being able to trade while SR tagged/banned in your sites FAQ?

    I was looking at this entry in the FAQ:

    Can I trade items on bots if there's a 1-8 day on them?
    This basically says that your site isn't circumventing Valve's cool down for those traded items..I believe CSGO correct?

    As I said in the application before, our main objective is to provide secure trade for our users. There so many fake sites, fake bots that look like CS.MONEY, thefts of Steam API keys, that allows intercepting trade offers, scammers that pretending to be our staff. We have a full list of our bots in our site and users can request any information about the validity of any of our staff, but we still get so many messages that users were scammed. So we are interested in to confer the approval status for our bots and staff in Steam Rep to enhance safety and security.

    We don't have any reasons to keep this secret. I don't understand why would you say that.

    Because, as you said, <
