UK talent get involved with CSGO Thunderpick Bitcoin Series

UK casters have joined the talent line-up for a new Thunderpick Bitcoin Series, a new tournament series with a prize pool in Bitcoin.

The Thunderpick Bitcoin Series is an online event that started on January 17th 2022 with a closed qualifier, and the CSGO tournament will run until March 7th. Other CSGO and Dota 2 tournaments within the Thunderpick Bitcoin Series are also expected to run later in the year.

UK casters Kremer and Legday are involved, and an all-UK CSGO team could be participating too. Into the Breach have made it through to the grand final of a closed qualifier, and if they win that today they will make it through to the full event.

UK org Into the Breach also recently reached the ESL Challenger League, moved into Valorant, extended roster contracts and announced new tournaments.

There will be 16 teams in the full tournament including Dignitas, GamerLegion, Blink and more. You can see more on this Thundercoin Bitcoin Series page on

Eight of these will progress to the final stage, where they will play against four additional guest teams.

The top teams in the latter stage of the tournament will be competing for a chance to win a chunk of the 1.2 Bitcoin prize pool with at least $75,000 guaranteed. The minimum amount is a secure prize, but the Bitcoin price might go up during the playoffs, so the main prize may be higher.

The format of the CSGO tournament will be a standard best-of-three, divided further into three stages with the collective 50 best-of-three matches. In the closed qualifier, four teams are playing in a double elimination format, where the winning team will advance to the main stage.

Thunderpick is an esports betting platform and this tournament is being run in conjunction with Russian event organiser UCC.
