According to Dota 2 Tracker with the battle pass being live for 64 Days it has brought $26,546,060 in comparison to 2018 battle pass it only brought $20,034,377.
Now with this new revelation, it is expected that with the remaining 45 Days prize pool may cross $30 Million which will set a new record and make it the highest prize pool event in Dota 2 and Esport History.
The sudden surge in the raising of the prize pool has been the result of a clever strategy by Valve. during the current Steam Summer Sale. Valve has put out a Battle level and treasure bundle which allows Battle Pass Owners to get whopping 120 levels at cheap price and with this they also plenty of treasure.
Currently with the purchase of 120 battle pass players will get nine of Immortal Treasure I, six of Immortal Treasure II, and three of Immortal Treasure III at a discounted price.
At honestly knowing valve they may soon release a new surprise which will bump up the prize pool which should cross $30 million prize pool.
