The Crypto World Cup Semi’s

After a stonking-ly good match that had everyone on the edge of their seat, we finally have our first victor for the Crypto World Cup Final due to play on Sunday!

Charles Hoskinson has earned his worthy place with his 1-0 defeat of Satoshi Nakamoto.

Nakamoto’s fans were obviously left devastated at the defeat; he had not reached the semi-finals in 32 years — riding on under-dog hopes, this could have been his year.

If you haven’t been following and want to see who has taken part and been booted out already, go here!

Semi-Final: Charles Hoskinson 1-0 Satoshi Nakamoto

Let’s get into this game.

It was an early second half goal, headed in by Hoskinson, combined with an all-round brilliant defensive wall which meant he was simply the superior side.

Nakamoto showed his talented attacking abilities, and with an all-round 64% possession, he was by no means out-ranked. But he could not find the back of the net against such an experienced and strong side; Hoskinson has reached the Crypto World Cup final three times in the last six cups.

The 1-0 defeat was nearly 2-0, when Hoskinson pulled off one of the best assists in Cup history — but he bottled it when it mattered — a fumble with the keeper sent the ball away from the net. You still have to appreciate such skill, and the lone goal was enough in the end to secure the victory. 

Overall, Nakamoto had more possession, but Hoskinson had 19 shots on goal, as opposed to Nakamoto’s 10. A suggestion that once he was on the ball, Hoskinson was more definitive on where to put it.

Nakamoto was a worthy side, and the match was by no means a walk in the park. He had gotten so far and it is a bitter end to his Crypto World Cup journey. No doubt his flag will fly low in his home tonight.

We have our victor though! The man of the moment is Charles Hoskinson who flies to Moscow on Sunday!

Who will he face? It’s either Justin Sun or Charlie Lee. 

Game on!

Crypto World Cup Day 15

Day 15 of the Crypto World Cup had some neck-to-neck matches. There were four matches in total today but all eyes were on the Justin Sun vs. Satoshi Nakamoto match. Today’s matches concluded the final day of round one of the Crypto World Cup!

Meet the players of this year’s Crypto World Cup.

Check out the results and highlights of today’s games

Match 1: Jack Dorsey 0-1 Warren Buffett

Jack Dorsey came up short today as he lost to Warren Buffett by only one goal. It was a tight match and Buffett scored in the 74th minute. There were only two yellow cards the entire match.

Dorsey will not be moving on to the Round of 16. However, Buffett did make it past the first round of the Crypto World Cup and will face Justin Sun on Tuesday.

Match 2: Andreas Antonopoulos 0-1 Don Tapscott

Andreas Antonopoulos came up short today in his match against Don Tapscott. However, that didn’t really matter as Antonopoulos scored enough points in the previous matches of the first round to push himself to the top 16.

Tapscott scored in the 59th minute of the match and there was only one yellow card thrown.

Despite his best efforts, Tapscott did not make the cut. Antonopoulos will face off against Satoshi Nakamoto on Monday.

Match 3: Justin Sun 0-1 Satoshi Nakamoto

Justin Sun fell short today, losing to Satoshi Nakamoto 0-1. However, both players have scored enough points in the previous matches to push them through to the Round of 16.

Nakamoto scored in the 51st minute of the match and only two yellow cards were thrown all match.

Nakamoto will face off against Antonopoulos on Monday and Sun will face off against Buffett the following day.

Match 4: Tom Lee 1-2 Jed McCaleb

Jed McCaleb slid past Tom Lee today with a victory of 2-1. Neither competitor scored enough points in the beginning matches and this match was more of a “friendly” competition.

This is the end of the road for these two competitors in the Crypto World Cup.

Stay tuned for tomorrow’s post as we announce what other competitors in the Crypto World Cup made it to the Round of 16!

Check out the results and highlights of today’s games

Match 1: Tom Lee 1-6 Justin Sun

Justin Sun had quite a day today. The Tron Founder ended up scoring six points this match, soaring past the Bitcoin analyst – Tom Lee. Sun scored within the first 8 minutes of the match and will face off against Satoshi Nakamoto this coming Thursday.

Lee will compete against Jed McCaleb this Thursday as well.

Match 2: Andreas Antonopoulos 2-2 Jack Dorsey

Andreas Antonopoulos and Jack Dorsey put up a tough match today which ended in a draw. Jack Dorsey scored the first goal within the first 11 minutes of the match. The match was a nailbiter as there were a total of five yellow cards thrown.

On Thursday, Jack Dorsey will face off against the notorious crypto bear Warren Buffet. Andreas Antonopoulos also has a matchup that day and will be facing Don Tapscott. Check back with us for the results of this match!

Match 3: Don Tapscott 0-3 Warren Buffet

Warren Buffet won by a grand slide in today’s matchup against Don Tapscott. I’m sure the cryptocurrency community was displeased with the match’s outcome, is Buffet is often critically vocal of cryptocurrency to the media.

Andrea Antonopoulos better watch out, as I’m sure Don Tapscott will be stewing from his 0-3 defeat today. The underdog is always the one to watch out for, especially if they have nothing to lose.
