I heard you can trade all kind of items with other players in dota 2. I haven't had a chance to check what and how can you do that, so here's a question:

Can players trade the treasure boxes they get as well? And if it's possible to trade them, do people usually want to trade things for them?

Yes, you can trade treasure boxes.

In fact I give mine away all the time (no, seriously!). I figure the 2.5 USD is better spent in real life, and if someone wants those boxes that bad, then they are more than welcome to have mine :).

Any idea are other players willing to trade other Dota 2 items for treasure boxes, or is TB's value in trading worthless? – ChrisHateZ Apr 30 '13 at 13:31
TBs are traded, and the value is not worthless. In fact there is a subreddit on Dota2Trade. A quick google confirmed this, people are willing to exchange TBs in return for Treasure Keys (2 for 1) and even Dota2 Invites. – Prasad Apr 30 '13 at 14:33
Alright then. Since i did ask in my original question do people usually want to trade things for them add that to your original answer and i will accept it. – ChrisHateZ Apr 30 '13 at 15:34

You can trade them, in the same way you would trade hats and the like in TF2.

You can also sell them, although they only sell for about 1 pence / cent at the best times.
