Streaming platform Play2Live has announced that it will host a CS:GO tournament in Belarus with $100,000 at stake.

Held at the Falcon Club in Minsk on February 24-25, the Play2live Cryptomasters will see eight teams - seven invited and one qualified - face off for the first prize of $50,000.

The most intriguing aspect of the tournament is that the prizes will not be paid in cash but through Play2Live's own cryptocurrency, called Level Up Coin (LUC), which can be used to place bets on the livestreaming platform or to be converted to fiat currencies or a variety of other cryptocurrencies.

AGO invited to attend esport event with crypto prize

BIG, Space Soldiers and GODSENT are among the teams confirmed for the tournament, which will use a single-elimination, best-of-three format.

"We are even excited to host the world’s first ever esport tournament with crypto prize: an event that will become a milestone in further integration of the blockchain technology into gaming industry.," Play2Live CEO and Founder said in a press release.

Registration for the Play2Live Cryptomasters qualifier, which will run on February 10-11, can be done here. The winner of this single-elimination tournament, featuring best-of-three matches from the quarter-finals onwards, will secure paid travel and accommodation for the event.

The team list for the event, which will be streamed live on p2l.tv, currently looks as follows:

Germany BIG Turkey Space Soldiers
Belarus GoodJob Serbia Valiance
Poland AGO Sweden GODSENT
Germany Sprout Europe Qualifier

The $100,000 prize pool will be distributed as follows:

1. $50,000
2. $30,000
3-4. $10,000

2018-02-06 18:11
Nice idea, but they want to give 100k$ of coins which doesn't even really exist yet - they are worth nothing ATM.
2018-02-06 18:11
once heard that you can exchange coins to any crypto currency via site

Nice! Might be a tournament for BIG to recover confidence or for AGO to come closer to that Tier 1 Status they want to achieve.
2018-02-06 18:13
AGO tier 1? They are barely a T2 team.

Yes right now they are ranked #22 but they said that their goal is to become a Tier 1 contender. And by winning a 100.000$ tournament ( which I think is possible if you look at the opponents ) this is possible. And dont forget that they play in Pro League :)
2018-02-06 18:31
I hope that they can keep improving, their tactical approach to the game is really nice to watch. Pro league will definately be their ultimate test, lets see if they can perform while facing higher tier competition.

missed opportunity by moe and dazed. they could've been like analysts who first analyze the game and then analyze how much the prize pot will be in 5 years etc. very disappointing lost all respect and so on
