TI Prize Pool boost after 1 Hour:— Wykrhm Reddy (@wykrhm) May 8, 2018
- TI8: ~ $500K
- TI7: ~ $94K
- TI6: ~ $97K
- TI5: ~ $99K
Oy yo yo yo!!!
At the end of day one the prize pool was already over 5,000,000 USD having hit that number in only 17 hours.
The following days went a bit slower while still smashing another million every single day before reaching 8,000,000 USD in only four days.
Currently the prize pool is already over 8.5 Million USD with no indication of slowing down.
TI8 can potentially hit 10,000,000 USD in half of the time TI7 did. It took TI7 15 days to reach that point.
