Cryptocurrency has made its way to the professional esports scene. Level Up Coin (LUC) is offering up to $100,000 as the first place reward for a CSGO event. The event is placed on February 25th, organized by Play2Live.
Out of the eight teams, seven will be directly invited to compete along with a team coming through open qualifiers. The tournament will be hosted in the Falcon Club in Minsk, Belarus.
