Currently, the prize pool for The International 2018 which is going to take place in Vancouver Canada on Aug 20th has surpassed over $19 million according to Valve’s official website. A fraction of the proceeds from purchasing the Battle Pass go towards the overall prize pool. Having about one month left, there’s still a significant amount of time to see just how high The International 2018’s prize pool will be.
The total prize pool for The International 2017 came out over $24 million. As Dota 2 has seen over the years, the game continues to show a steady growth in popularity when it comes to the player base and viewership.
