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.

>> Justin Sun vs. Charlie Lee Semi-Final

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 Semi-Finals are Here! Who will Advance?

The Crypto World Cup Semi-Finals are Here!

It’s hard to believe that the Crypto World Cup semi-finals start tomorrow, July 10th. It feels like just yesterday the group stages were kicking off.

From then to now, the whole tournament has been fun to watch. Mostly because it played out differently than most years.

In the Crypto World Cup semi-finals, there is no Roger Ver, no Vitalik Buterin, and no Cameron Winklevoss. Three crypto players that – and this could be an understatement – did not rise to the occasion, despite the world expecting them to.

Putting the disappointment aside (cough, Brian Armstrong fans, cough), the Crypto World Cup semi-finals is likely to be a doozy. And we couldn’t be more excited.

Before we can get too excited, though, it’s important to remember the fallen crypto players:

Crypto World Cup Semi-Finals

Now that we’ve gotten that out of the way, we can get talk about the crypto players that survived the group stages and the knockout stages without feeling dismissive.

Match 1: Charles Hoskinson vs. Satoshi Nakamoto

Tuesday, July 10th at 11:00 a.m.

Go figure that Satoshi Nakamoto made it to the Crypto World Cup semi-finals. He (or she) is, after all, the OG of crypto.

It wasn’t easy getting to this point, though. Satoshi Nakamoto continued to surprise the crypto community throughout the tournament, booting Andreas Antonopoulos out in the round of 16, and beating Cameron Winklevoss in the quarter-finals.

>> Charles Hoskinson and Satoshi Nakamoto Quarter-Finals

Meanwhile, Charles Hoskinson had a few surprises up his own sleeve. After booting Vitalik Buterin out of the tournament, Charles Hoskinson very much deserves to be in the semi-finals.

But who will be victorious on Tuesday?

Match 2: Justin Sun vs. Charlie Lee

Wednesday, July 11th at 11:00 a.m.

I don’t know about you, but this is the game I’m most looking forward to.

Justin Sun has made history just making it this far; the last time Justin Sun (who was randomly paired as England) made it to the World Cup semi-finals was 28 years ago, which is the age of Mr. Sun right now.

Justin Sun battled to get here, too. He beat Warren Buffet in, perhaps, one of the most nerve-wracking round of shootouts I’ve ever seen, and Willy Woo in the quarter-finals.

>> Justin Sun and Charlie Lee Quarter-Finals

Don’t get me wrong, Charlie Lee deserves ample credit too.

In the group stage, Charlie Lee beat Vitalik Buterin (a shock to many at the time, and probably still is). He then went on to beat the home crypto player, CryptoYoda, in the quarter-finals.

All eyes will be on Charles Hoskinson and Satoshi Nakamoto tomorrow, as their match will determine the future of both Charlie Lee and Justin Sun.

Are any of your original bets still in the Crypto World Cup? If not, out of the remaining four, which crypto player are you going to support in the semi-finals?

Under our roof, we’ve got some Justin Sun fans… but that’s just us!

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. 

>>> Day 18 of the Crypto World Cup 

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!

Crypto World Cup Day 17

It’s Day 17 of the Crypto World Cup and our second day of the round of 16! Charlie Lee faces off against Bill Barhydt, plus Tyler Winklevoss takes on CryptoYoda.

It was two wild games today, with some pretty surprising results. Let’s dig in!

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

Check out the results and highlights of today’s games

Match 1: Tyler Winklevoss 1 (3)-1 (4) CryptoYoda

Coming blind into this match, you would think that Tyler Winklevoss would have this game in the bag. Most would say he’s got a way better track record in the crypto world that CryptoYoda, but CryptoYoda has been surprising everyone this tournament and today was no different!

Not only did Tyler Winklevoss not win today’s match against CryptoYoda, he didn’t even get any goals in for the actual game.

CryptoYoda scored one goal and accidently scored a goal on himself, giving Winklevoss his one goal and tying the match.

The game came to an end still at a tie, forcing the players to take penalty shots. Here, Winklevoss stepped up, getting three penalty shots, but it still wasn’t enough. CryptoYoda got in four penalty shots, winning the game for himself and knocking Tyler Winklevoss completely out of the tournament!

Now, Winklevoss’ only hope at redemption is his twin Cameron winning for the both of them.

Match 2: Charlie Lee 1 (3)-1 (2) Bill Barhydt

Perhaps a somewhat less exciting game than Winklevoss vs. CryptoYoda, the game between Charlie Lee and Bill Barhydt ended in much the same way – going to penalty shots.

Within mere minutes of starting the match, Bill Barhydt scored the first goal of the game, exciting all Abra fans. But the excitement was short-lived, as Charlie Lee rounded things up by quickly scoring a goal for himself.

Things remained 1-1 until the end of the game, where things once again had to turn to penalty shots, where, ultimately, Lee beat out Barhydt.

Today knocks Bill Barhydt and, unbelievably, Tyler Winklevoss out of the competition for good, leaving CryptoYoda and Charlie Lee to move onto the next round.
