I have a question about that.

Valve just ban bots of betting sites? or trading sites are also prohibited?

I don't know why betting sites are using coins instead items to bet, and they are implementing an intern market of items.

Plain trading sites are generally okay.

Steam banned my bot today https://i.imgur.com/TVPRNks.png
 
I was using my bot for buy / sell items with real money in my country. That is not allowed?
 
I don't know how some sites works perfectly with bots (tradeit.gg loot.farm skinwallet.com skins.cash)
 
My bot account had 0 played hours. And I was using a phone number of another banned account. Maybe this matters?

Absolutely. If any account gets banned, all accounts with the same phone number get banned.

and what about the 0 played hours?
 
and you think buy / sell items are allowed?
or not but valve just let that sites work? (risky business)

I was working in a market site but now I am afraid about another trade ban. I just want to know is it possible that I can operate without problems. I really like programming and games like Dota 2. I would very much finish this project.

All accounts linked to a phone number are banned if any account linked to that number is banned. No other criteria matter.

Thanks for taking the time to answer.

If I have another account with that banned number, can I change the phone number and use the same account with normally? or I have to make a new account with a new clean number?

I have an older bot (5 years account, bot from 1 year ago) with the same banned number, but that account is work normally. Thats why I thought maybe olders accounts are better for bots. I guess it's just a lucky account.

Once an account is banned, it's banned for good. You can't just change the phone number and get it unbanned. I also wouldn't use that same phone number anymore since it's now "tainted".
