The Thunderpick Bitcoin Series is officially underway with an online CS:GO tournament that began on January 17th and will take us all the way to March 7th. This first leg of the Series has 23 teams competing for a chance to win the lion’s share of the 1.2 Bitcoin prize pool with at least $75,000 guaranteed.
The minimum amount is a secure prize, but there is no telling how high the Bitcoin price might go up during the playoffs, so the grand prize could end up being even higher.
The format of the CS:GO tournament is a standard best-of-three, divided further into three stages with a total of 50 best-of-three matchups. In the closed qualifier, four teams will face double elimination, where the winning team will advance to the main stage. The main stage features 16 teams where only eight can get into the final stage and play against four additional guest teams. During the Grand Finale, the top teams of the tournament will fight over who will take home the main prize.
Other CS:GO and Dota 2 tournaments within the Thunderpick Bitcoin Series are expected later in 2022.
