$600,000 Bitcoin online tournament announced
A big online tournament Thunderpick World Championship 2023 is scheduled for November of this year. The organizers will offer participants a prize pool of $600,000 in bitcoins, the most popular cryptocurrency in the world.
A total of 16 rosters will compete at the upcoming tournament. Half of the participants are invited teams, while the rest of the spots will be secured by the finalists of the European and North American qualifiers in July.
The North American team Evil Geniuses received the first invite. EG secured a berth at the event as a partner of the tournament's main sponsor.
The tournament is planned to be held in CS:GO, but if a full-fledged transition of the competitive scene to Counter-Strike 2 takes place, Thunderpick World Championship 2023 will take place in a new version of the shooter.
