Hopefully one day we can see items like Protean materials become tradable. Some may consider it overpowered, but at the same time i'm sure they would be very expensive to balance this. There are even many other related items that are tradable.

Other sources of tradable Treasure hunter XP;
Summoning Focus
Silverhawk Feathers
Elite Skilling Outfits

Just to name a few, sure i'm missing some

At the end of the day, 13million experience just for 99 in a skill is hours of real life time that you should be able to spend how you choose, even if it means afking with protean items.

I know someone will bring up achievements being devalued, but really its just a game and the only opinion that should matter is your own, not the random player who glanced at your cape. We shouldnt keep progression slow & grindy as it currently is for the sake of "achievements"

The competitive element has always been a core part of Runescape, I guess you're a new player if you don't know that. Fact of the matter is that other people's levels do affect you as well, in ways that you normally might not see and thus not realize they're there.

So, consequently, no support. In addition, you don't even elaborate what kind of tradeability you're looking to add, because from your examples:

You've listed items that can be traded for gp, and items that can only be traded for other similar items (elite skilling outfit pieces). Are you looking to make proteans tradeable for gp, or tradeable for other proteans only? Either way however is too OP, especially if the gp route is taken, and either way would make the protean conversion a useless feature.

Extremely overpowering option to just buy stackable bulk xp tools from other players. If the one person doesn't want to use the proteans they get from something like TH, they can cash out.

If a person wants to buy more proteans than he would normally get, spend some gp for a bond to use on keys, or spend dollars for keys during the Time to Train, and any other Protean Event.

No Support.
