Crypto World Cup Third Place

63 games down and one more to go. Earlier, the Crypto World Cup third-place match took place, and, after a middling match, Satoshi Nakamoto secured the title of third place.

Some argue that the third-place game in the Crypto World Cup means nothing; after all, it’s not like the winning crypto player gets a bronze medal, like in the Olympics.

We disagree. We think getting to the third-place match in the Crypto World Cup is something to be proud of — even when being there means both crypto players lost in the semifinals. 

Crypto World Cup: Satoshi Nakamoto Comes in Third 

Satoshi Nakamoto and Justin Sun faced off for third place in the Crypto World Cup, not long after Nakamoto lost 1-0 in its semi-finals match to Charles Hoskinson, and Justin Sun lost, in what was one of the most heartbreaking games of my life, to Charlie Lee in extra-time.

But despite the disappointment, despite the tears, both Satoshi Nakamoto and Justin Sun walked onto the pitch today, heads held high. 

Final Score: Satoshi Nakamoto 2-0 Justin Sun 

This game pretty much favored Satoshi Nakamoto, who scored within the first four minutes, and kept the 1-0 lead right through to halftime.

In the second half, it looked like Justin Sun may have been on the verge of a comeback. Satoshi Nakamoto was receiving yellow card after yellow card, an indication that he was feeling the pressure, and starting to get frustrated with Justin Sun. 

But a comeback never happened. In the 70th minute, it could have happened; Justin Sun almost scored, twice, in a span of two minutes. However, because of Nakamoto’s strong defense, the ball never met the back of the net.

12 minutes later, Satoshi Nakamoto knocked the ball into the bottom left-hand corner from inside the box, making the score 2-0. 

And that was it. Injury time did nothing; it was evident Justin Sun had given up after the second Nakamoto goal went in. 

No Time For Tears 

Like we said earlier, it’s a big deal to have even gotten this far. Satoshi Nakamoto was full of surprises throughout the entire tournament, and Justin Sun not only made history getting as far as he did, but he also provided a nation with hope.

It’s a big deal to us, and, we hope Satoshi Nakamoto and Justin Sun feel the same. Now, however, all they can do is spend time with their loved ones, and, perhaps, watch the Charlie Lee vs. Charles Hoskinson game tomorrow (check back then!)

So congratulations to Satoshi Nakamoto for coming in third at the Crypto World Cup, and Justin Sun, you should feel extremely accomplished! 

Oh, and one more thing: there’s always the Crypto Euros, two years from now!

Crypto World Cup Day 20:Brad Garlinghouse vs. Charles Hoskinson

Today kicked off the quarterfinals of the Crypto World Cup and boy was the competition fierce! Many big names have already been eliminated, but who will be next? Let’s find out!

Today’s competitors: Brad Garlinghouse vs. Charles Hoskinson & Cameron Winklevoss vs. Satoshi Nakamoto

Check out the eight finalists that made it to the Quarterfinals!

Check Out the Results and Highlights of Today’s Games 

Match 1: Brad Garlinghouse 0-2 Charles Hoskinson

Charles Hoskinson came onto the pitch with guns blazing this afternoon and blew Garlinghouse out of the water. Hoskinson held the ball for 62% of the match and had a pass accuracy of 80%.

The match held a total of four yellow cards, but no red cards were thrown despite the heat of the competition.

Garlinghouse took a total of 11 shots during the match, but couldn’t sink any into the net. Hoskinson scored the first goal within’ forty minutes of the match and his second goal came in the 61st minute.

Hoskinson will face the winner of today’s second match on July 10th, in the Semi-finals.

Match 2: Cameron Winklevoss 1-2 Satoshi Nakamoto

Cameron Winklevoss is a six-time Crypto World Cup winner and remains the obvious favorite. He received some serious critique from fans and analysts in his last match, for his dramatics on the field.

During today’s match, Winklevoss took 27 shots, and Nakamoto only took nine. Winklevoss held the ball for 59% of the match and made 521 passes.

There were four yellow cards in the match but no red cards. Winklevoss struck first within the 13th minute of the match, but the ‘kicker’ is that he scored in his own goal giving Nakomoto a goal. Nakamoto struck back nearly twenty minutes later with another goal, making it 2-0.

Winklevoss struck back towards the end of the match in the 76th minute. Nakamoto has never won a World Cup and will face Hoskinson in the Semi-Finals on Tuesday.

Charles Hoskinson Suggests Mantis to Tron (TRX)

Charles Hoskinson suggests Mantis: Last week, Tron (TRX) was heavily criticized as developers outside of the project discovered that most of the code on Tron’s platform had been taken from Ethereum’s EthereumJ library.

Tron celebrated its ‘Independence Day’ from Ethereum on the 25th, but ironically it wasn’t independent from the project at all. While the ERC20 TRX token was made irrelevant by being switched over to the Tron main net, the project still has a large chunk of codebase taken directly from Ethereum.

One Twitter commented on the copied code and said:

Not all cryptocurrency projects on the market have built their code from the ground up, such as Cardano has done. The issue with what Tron did lies specifically with not attributing the code to its original source – especially since Tron and its founder, Justin Sun, were so boldly broadcasting the project’s ‘breakaway’ from Ethereum.

Not to mention this infamous tweet where Justin Sun compares how Tron is ‘better’ than Ethereum.

If you have improved on an original idea, that’s great, but you have to give credit where credit is due. Can’t waltz around like you created the entire thing.

Charles Hoskinson Suggests Mantis

Charles Hoskinson was one of the eight co-founders of Ethereum, but due to an issue with its governing structure, Hoskinson left in June 2014. He then went on to build Input|Output, which created Ethereum Classic (ETC).

A group of developers spent seven months building Mantis, a unique Ethereum Classic client, from scratch. Hoskinson addressed Justin Sun and told him that Mantis would better suit Tron.

Justin Sun responded back by saying:

It remains unknown if Tron will make the switch, but it’s an enticing idea.

When Charles Hoskinson suggests Mantis, would you listen?
