If players will be able to buy and sell BP it
will let more creative players to invest time in BluePrints.
And the developers will have some % of steam market deals

Nope steam market BPs won't happen.
This will and must be handled completely in game.

Doesn't stop people to black market it anyway.
But this will only be a problem if the in-game tools suck.

why not?
a lot of games are using steam market - sow why not this? why starbase should develop own market?
BP owner of the cool ship can sell 1 istance of BP there or BP itself. It will looks like ingame market...

Because FB loses control as soon a third party is involved.
This is also something that needs to be native in game.
It is also a complete nightmare concerning intellectual property because Valve takes ages to react if issues arise.
It is also a complete ripoff... Valve, not the devs, takes a hefty part of the transaction as fees.
Oh... and real world money trade is questionable at best...

It is a real boon for small indie developers with small projects but just not feasible for SBs scale.
