100 Thieves gave away a total of $450,000 to fans during their highly anticipated Cash App Pay Day stream, and CouRage secured the lion’s share in the Uno Championship finals. We’ve got a complete recap of how the event unfolded.
- CouRage won the $350K Uno Championship.
- Nadeshot eliminated in the first round of the finals.
- Cash App x 100T Cash Card announced.
Being a multi-million dollar international esports brand like 100 Thieves wouldn’t be possible without their loyal fans, so, in an effort to give back, the org handed out $450,000 in total prizes during a streaming event called Cash App Pay Day.
According to CEO Matthew ‘Nadeshot’ Haag, the Pay Day was “the biggest live event ever hosted here at 100 Thieves.’ With plenty of fans taking home a good chunk of the prize pool, here’s how it all went down.

The Pay Day stream kicked off on April 20 at 1 PM PST, or 4 PM EST/8 PM GMT for those of us not on the west coast. It ran for around seven hours as the huge list of content creators all gathered for one of the biggest uno tournaments to date.
Not all of the $450K was given away at once, however. The big Uno tournament featured a $350K prize pool while various other segments were used to give the remaining $100K away.
100 Thieves Cash App Pay Day schedule
The Pay Day event featured some of the biggest streamers on Twitch and YouTube and it all started with a countdown and musical performance by Twitch streamer 24k Brown Magic. It also featured an unexpected announcement fitting the day’s big-money themes: a new 100T-branded Cash Card with Cash App.
The card costs $5 to purchase (with $1 donated to Gamers Outreach) and is available to get in the Cash app now.

After that, a live episode of the CouRage and Nadeshot show took place, and then we got to the main attraction: the $450,000 giveaway.
First, $100,000 in Bitcoin was awarded during a special edition of Cash App Trivia. All the rewards during the Pay Day event were in BTC.
For the big finale there was a $350,000 UNO “Championship” featuring 16 teams made up of big-name streamers on Twitch and YouTube. If fans were able to correctly vote on who won the UNO tournament, they’d split a $100,000 Bitcoin prize.
The full schedule of events is listed down below:
- Countdown/Musical Performance by 24K Brown Magic
- Courage & Nadeshot Show
- Musical Performance by Harry Mack
- $100k Bitcoin edition of #CashAppTrivia
- $350k UNO Championship
100 Thieves have put on Cash App events before, but none that even came close to giving away $450,000, and in Bitcoin — which could end up being worth even more after a while.
