Crypto World Cup Day 10

Day 10 of the Crypto World Cup has officially concluded, and it was quite the doozy! 

Saturday’s matches saw Satoshi Nakamoto alienate Jed McCaleb.  We also saw a tight game between Anthony Pompliano and Brian Armstrong, with the latter coming back in injury time. Day 10 of the Crypto World Cup ended with Roger Ver facing off with Willy Woo in what ended up being a nail-biting game.

If you don’t know yet, meet the players of our 2018 Crypto World Cup! 

Match 1: Satoshi Nakamoto 5-2 Jed McCaleb 

The game started off tight but quickly favored Satoshi Nakamoto. Both teams scored less than twenty minutes into the first half, with Satoshi Nakamoto slotting the ball into the bottom-left corner during a penalty in the 6th minute. 

Jed McCaleb came back in the 18th minute, but not before Satoshi Nakamoto slipped the ball through the legs of Mr. McCaleb, making the score 2-0 at the time. 

Satoshi Nakamoto went on to score 2 more goals in the second half, with the last being at the 90th minute. Jed McCaleb managed to get one more goal, 3 minutes into injury time. 

Takeaway:

Satoshi Nakamoto: 6 Points; Leader of Group G

Jed McCaleb: 0 Points; Bottom of Group G

Match 2: Brian Armstrong 2-1 Anthony Pompliano 

This was Brian Armstrong’s game. 12 minutes into the game and Brian Armstrong held 72% of possession. Armstrong scored his first goal in the 26th minute via a penalty. 

Second half was met with yellow cards, substitutions, and another goal for Brian Armstrong — eight yards out at the 66th minute. 

At this point, the game was in the Brian Armstrong bag. But 3 minutes into injury time, Anthony Pompliano managed to bang in a screamer from 20 yards out, making the score 2-1. The game was back on. However, with a remaining 3 minutes in stoppage time, Anthony Pompliano was not able to equalize. 

Takeaway: 

Brian Armstrong: 6 Points; Leader of Group F

Anthony Pompliano: 0 Points; Bottom of Group F 

Match 3: Roger Ver 2-1 Willy Woo 

Both teams took turns leading this match. Controversial crypto player Roger Ver started off the game strong, with Willy Woo failing to complete the majority of his passes. But at the 30-minute mark, the game began to favor Willy Woo. Roger Ver wasn’t able to maintain possession and Willy Woo managed to take the lead, clipping the ball over the goalie. 

Roger Ver must have given one inspirational half-time pep talk. After making a few subs, Roger Ver managed to equalize in the 48th minute, driving the ball home. At this point, the atmosphere had changed. All eyes were on Roger Ver. Could this crypto player make a comeback? 

And he did! In injury time, Willy Woo clumsily gave up a free-kick on the edge of the box, and Roger Ver drove it home, curling the ball into the far corner of the net. 

The game ended 2-1 to Roger Ver. 

Takeaway:

Roger Ver: 3 Points; Second in Group F; Behind Mexico 

Willy Woo: 3 Points; Third in Group F; Ahead of South Korea

Crypto World Cup Day 9

It’s Crypto World Cup day 9 and round 1 of the world cup is giving us our worthy victors; by June 28th we should have our top 16.

Today’s matches saw World Cup favorite Cameron Winklevoss defeat Dan Larimer in a cruel last-minute win. We also had Barry Silbert and Nick Szabo meet face-to-face but everyone held their breaths as Jamie Dimon and David Schwartz both scrambled to find that last minute goal that would sway the victory in their favor. 

If you don’t know them all yet, meet the players of our Crypto World Cup!

Match 1: Cameron Winklevoss 2-0 Dan Larimer

Cameron Winklevoss came alive in the final 2 minutes of this game. Up until the 90th minute, the match was tied 0-0. It looked like Winklevoss was set for another draw in the first group stages of this tournament. But to everyone’s disbelief, it was in extra stoppage time where he rolled up his sleeves and got back in this game scoring two late goals. Now Winklevoss leads this group and looks set for the next stage of the cup. Larimer is going to be out now as he sits point-less at the bottom of the table.

Match 2: Barry Silbert 2-0 Nick Szabo

It was a surprise to all but then, it wasn’t. Nick Szabo had failed to show up in his match against Charlie Lee and it appears the same happened today. What’s going on Szabo? Silbert, on the other hand, shot ahead with a 2-0 win over Szabo which has secured him second place on the group D board.

Match 3: Jamie Dimon 1-2 David Schwartz

No doubt that it was the most exciting match today. It was last minute, it was exciting, it was unexpected but somehow David Schwartz managed to break away and net a 2-1 victory over his competitor Jamie Dimon. Dimon had looked superior in the first half – he was no easy foe. The match was tight with the two teams equalizing for the majority of the game. Dimon has been denied a penalty when the teams were drawn at 1-1. This was a controversial decision which will no doubt be talked about over the coming days. Schwartz now leads Group E alongside Winklevoss with 4 points to his name.
