According to the materials of the BBC, the largest prize fund in the history of eSports was at the World Championships in the game Fortnite. Prize amount equal to 30 million dollars was divided among winners. The 16-year-old from the USA Kyle Giersdorf, known online under the nickname Bugha, got a record 3 million dollars for the first place. The young millionaire said that he was not going to spend most of his prize, but intended to save it:
“All I want is a new desk and maybe a desk for my trophy” – he said.
It is worth noting that 15-year-old Jaden Ashman from the UK got a prize of 1.2 million dollars for coming second in the duos event.
