Crypto World Cup Day 19

Day 19 of the Crypto World Cup is over, and so is the fourth day of the round of 16. 

The games today were definitely something else. While the score count remained low, the matches saw other things occur that made up for that. However, those things weren’t necessarily all good. 

Let’s dive in. If you missed it, here’s who is playing in the round of 16. 

Check Out the Results and Highlights of Today’s Games 

Match 1: Willy Woo 1-0 David Schwartz 

This match was a tough one. For the most part, the game was working in favor of David Schwartz. He dominated possession and had more shots on goal than Willy Woo. The exact difference was 18 to 12. 

Despite all of this, David Schwartz was not able to break through the defense of Willy Woo. 

Still, Willy Woo wasn’t able to kick-start its own offense until the 66th minute. And even then, the goal boiled down to the fact that the ball deflected off David Schwartz and went in.

At the end of the day, David Schwartz could be considered the real winner. He dominated the game, and the deciding goal went in under unfortunate circumstances. That said, even though Willy Woo didn’t create chances or dominate possession – like David – he got the job done. At this stage of the tournament, that’s all you want, really. 

Match 2: Justin Sun 1 (4) – 1 (3) Warren Buffet 

Well, that was an aggressive game. And an intense game. Basically, it hit us all in the feels. 

The first half was dominated by Justin Sun, but the game was scoreless when the halftime whistle blew. In the half, Warren Buffet was all over Justin Sun, throwing shoulders, and, at one point, a headbutt. He was handed yellow card after yellow card.

In the second half, Warren Buffet did not shy away from the tackles, which ultimately led to his downfall. In the 57th minute, Buffet pulled down Justin Sun in the box, rewarding the latter with a penalty. Justin Sun curled the ball into the net, making the game 1-0. 

And then it happened. Justin Sun fans around the world collapsed to their knees (literally and figuratively) when, in the 93rd minute, Warren Buffet scored on a corner, making the score 1-1. The game was forced to go into overtime. 

Overtime did nothing. The game moved onto shootouts, and that’s where it ended. Justin Sun won the shootouts 4-3. 

God Save the Queen, Justin Sun prevails!

Top Crypto News | June 11 – June 15, 2018 – Crypto Currency News

Top Crypto News – The second full week of June is now over, and a lot of stuff went down. To say that the week started off poorly would be a bit of an understatement, too. However, things picked up towards the end of the week.

In this article, we will be covering both the good and the bad. So, without further adieu, here is this week’s top crypto news. 

Top Crypto News | June 11 – June 15, 2018

Monday, June 11

Monday was not a good day. News broke on the 11th that Coinrail, a South Korean crypto exchange, had been hacked over the weekend, sending the majority of the coins on the market down the rabbit hole. Altcoins like Ripple (XRP) and IOTA (MIOTA) were both down significantly.

With that being said, there was some positive crypto news that surfaced Monday. Despite being in the red on the crypto market, news surfaced on the 11th that Bitpanda, a crypto exchange, had added IOTA (MIOTA) to its list of offerings.

Tuesday, June 12

Tuesday was tough, as the market had not yet recovered from the Coinrail hack. On the market, Bitcoin (BTC) dropped to its lowest point since April 1, falling well below the $6.5K mark.

There was quite a bit of negative crypto news floating around Tuesday, although it depends on how you look at it. For instance, on Tuesday, word surfaced that Apple blocked crypto mining apps on all of its products. If you’re a crypto miner, you probably considered this to be negative crypto news. However, if you are someone who is totally opposed to crypto mining, this announcement probably didn’t do much to faze you.

In terms of positive crypto news announced Tuesday, Coinbase disclosed that it would be adding support to Ethereum Classic.

Wednesday, June 13

On Wednesday, cryptocurrencies were continuing to experience a massive dip in the market. Again, this was because of the Coinrail hack. Bitcoin (BTC) was down, and so were altcoins like Ripple (XRP), Stellar (XLM), and IOTA (MIOTA).

The 13th was also a bad day for the blockchain sector. Specifically, Quantstamp, a blockchain startup, came under fire for misleading the crypto community about its QSP token. 

Thursday, June 14

On Thursday, things started to look a little bit better for coins on the crypto market. Numerous altcoins were up, including Ripple (XRP).

Additionally, there was quite a bit of positive crypto news making its way around the sector. For instance, the new XRP logo was revealed, and it was announced that William Shatner moved into the Bitcoin mining space. It was also announced on Thursday that Steve Bannon had moved into the crypto space. This can be thought of as either positive crypto news or negative crypto news, depending on your stance on Bannon.

With all that being said, we should mention that the piece of crypto news that went viral yesterday was the SEC deciding that Ethereum is not a security.

Friday, June 15

Coins started off Friday in the green, but that shifted very quickly. Now, all of the top-ten coins are in the red zone.

Of course, the day isn’t over yet, but here’s some trending crypto news from Friday thus far:

– Tron (TRX) announces Google Chrome plugin
