I don't think it's a problem if a game is doing cryptomining (or any other non-game related business, like copy protection).
But it has to say so clearly on the sales page so you would know before buying it.

As for these trading cards - they're a business model for additional revenue at Steam, by capitalizing on the ignorance of weak-minded or uneducated people.
There is nothing wrong with that either, as long as the buyer gets what he paid for.
If you buy into a scam, it's your own fault; you did not do your research.
There are basic things you need to do before you buy anything even in a shop (let alone on the internet).
Would you buy a car on the internet without a test drive and taking it to the mechanic?
If your momma did not teach you any of that, that was most likely intentional from her to screw you for something that you did (or did not) do to her so you probably deserve what you got.
