It's based on how many shares (futures they call them) are in demand for that player.

Players can win "dividends" based on matchday performance and media interest. On a non-matchday 3 players win dividends for "media buzz" - 8p for 1st place, 5p for 2nd place and 2p for 3rd place. Only players in the "top 200" are eligible and it is based on 25 British news outlets.

On a matchday 4 players win dividends for "performance buzz" - 4p each for best defender, midfielder, attacker and star performer. On a double matchday this is doubled and on a triple matchday this is trebled. Top "media buzz" for the day also wins 5p. Only the English Premier League, Spanish La Liga, French Ligue 1, Italian Serie A, German Bundesliga, UEFA Champions League, UEFA Europa League are eligible.

Essentially what influences price is the player's likelihood to win dividends over time. Some players are better at winning dividends than others due to how performance is rated (bit like fantasy football is rated but much more in depth) and how much the media focuses on them. If a player is considered by the traders on the platform to be likely to be in with a chance of winning dividends then their price will go up and if not then it will go down. So when De Bruyne got injured yesterday his value sunk as he would go 3 months or so without being able to win dividends; meanwhile his likely replacements David Silva, Bernardo Silva and Ilkay Gundogan all saw their prices increase as they would be more likely to win dividends in the interim period.

It's all very interesting and most players' values are at the very least steady with the vast majority of players increasing in value by varying amounts so there isn't too much to lose as the platform looks to be growing very well. The guide to dividends is explained well here: To view the link you have to Register or Login

However it hasn't updated the increase in performance buzz dividends which have increased since that was published.
