Total Earnings:

Astralis is a Danish organization owned by players of the former Danish Team SoloMid/Questionmark lineup, with the help of their manager, Frederik "realition" Byskov.

It is also worth noting that the original five members of this team (karrigan, dupreeh, dev1ce, Xyp9x and cajunb) are co-owners of the organization and Astralis is one of the first player-made organizations in Counter-Strike history.

As of May 19th and as a result of cajunb and Kjaerbye swapping teams with eachother, Astralis later announced in a Q&A on their website that these roster changes do not automatically revoke him of his ownership with the organization, nor automatically grant Kjaerbye ownership with the organization, as the other staff may later decide what takes effect later on. [1] While Bo "wantz" Vestergaard was still in the team as a backup, he was never declared an owner nor granted any form of ownership either.
