Crypto World Cup Day 21

It’s Crypto World Cup Day 21. Justin Sun takes on Willy Woo and Charlie faces off against CryptoYoda. Who will move on and who will be knocked out?

Today’s the final day of the quarterfinals and the last chance to take your guesses at the final two teams who will be moving into the semifinal round.

How did the games go today? Let’s take a look!

Check out the results and highlights of today’s games

Match 1: Willy Woo 0-2 Justin Sun

On paper, this seemed like it would be a simple match. No way, the hardcore fans all said, no way would Willy Woo beat Justin Sun.

And they were right. Justin Sun got two goals, while Woo was left with zip, zilch, nada, thus knocking him out of the competition and catapulting Sun into his much desired semi-final place.

Troniacs are still screaming, and the parties will, no doubt, be going all through the night.

Match 2: CryptoYoda 2 (3)-2 (4) Charlie Lee

Perhaps the more nail-biting match of the day was CryptoYoda facing off against Charlie Lee. We’ve been waiting a long time for this game, and boy, it did not disappoint!

CryptoYoda scored the first goal of the game, taking an early lead, but it was a short-lived victory. A mere eight minutes later, Charlie Lee scored a beaut – GOOOOOOALLLL! – and tied things up, 1-1.

The game remained tied for the rest of the first half and all of the second half, forcing the teams to go into overtime.

In overtime, Lee scored the first score, and again the crowds went wild. Lee looked like he had it in the bag! But with minutes to spare, CryptoYoda put one in the net, tying things up again.

The game turns to the dreaded penalty shootout. First round – CryptoYoda misses, Charlie Lee gets it. Second round – Lee misses this time, and CryptoYoda scores. Flipflopping back and forth, the players struggle against one another, but LEE WIIIIINS, scoring four penalty shots, while CryptoYoda manages only three!

This gives us our semi-finalists: Charles Hoskinson, Satoshi Nakamoto, Justin Sun, and Charlie Lee! Whew, what a semi-final round that will be! Who are you rooting for?

Crypto World Cup | Eliminations and Round of 16 World Cup Bracket

It’s here – the moment everyone has been waiting for has arrived!

Group stages of the Crypto World Cup are over, which means we’re moving onto the best part of the tournament: the knockout stages.

No more weak crypto players or unfair matches (though there will be a few: looking at you Andreas Antonopoulos vs. Satoshi Nakamoto). At this point in the Crypto World Cup, we have the best of the best playing against each other. You can count on these games being fast-paced and well-played.

Before we look at the Crypto World Cup Bracket, however, let’s have a moment to reflect on all the crypto players lost.

Crypto World Cup Eliminations: No Round of 16 For You!

There are a few crypto players that have been eliminated that I personally was hoping would go far. For instance, Tiffany Hayden (who was randomly drawn as Australia) was eliminated.

Overall, however, the biggest shocker of the Crypto World Cup is the absence of Roger Ver in the knockout stages.

Here are all the crypto players that were not able to move to the round of 16:

Crypto World Cup: Next Round Speculation

For the crypto representatives that did advance to the knockout stages, there are definitely going to be some interesting matches. Some are going to be must-watches, like Tyler Winklevoss vs. CryptoYoda.

However, there are a few games that are not the most glamorous of matchups. Take Willy Woo vs. David Schwartz: both crypto players looked good during group stages, but there isn’t anything to make one drop everything they’re doing to watch the upcoming match.

Moving forward, the public is divided. Many seem to believe that one side of the Crypto World Cup bracket is easier than the other.

Crypto Players on the Easy Side of the Bracket:

– Tyler Winklevoss, CryptoYoda, Charlie Lee, Bill Barhydt, Willy Woo, David Schwartz, Warren Buffett, and Justin Sun.

Crypto Players on the Difficult Side of the Bracket:

– Charles Hoskinson, Vitalik Buterin, Brad Garlinghouse, John McAfee, Cameron Winklevoss, Brian Armstrong, Satoshi Nakamoto, and Andreas Antonopoulos

Round of 16 World Cup Bracket: Onwards Crypto Troops!

That’s all speculation, though. Whether or not observers are right that things are looking easier for one side of the Crypto World Cup bracket, it’s still monumental for these players to have gotten this far. As we saw with Roger Ver, the tournament has a mind of its own – no matter how good at the game you’re supposed to be.

Here are the crypto players that advanced to the knockout stages. Note that the dates of each matchup have been provided:

Crypto World Cup: Takeaway

From this point out, things are going to start getting a lot more intense. Crypto players are going to be less friendly with those that they know from the opposite team on the fields, and the overall intensity of matches is going to skyrocket.

As we move forward with the Crypto World Cup, we have two questions to ask: 1) how do you feel about the round of 16 World Cup bracket, and 2) who are you going to support as each crypto player makes their bid to make it to the quarter-finals?

Crypto World Cup Day 12

Well, that’s it, folks! Day 12 of the Crypto World Cup has concluded, and the competition is heating up. 

Monday’s matches saw Brad Garlinghouse shut out CryptoYoda, putting the Ripple CEO at 9 points. We also saw David Sønstebø defeat Erik Voorhees in injury time, a cruel end to a game that favored Voorhees. Next, Tim Draper and John McAfee faced off in a mediocre game. The day ended with Tyler Winklevoss playing Zhao Changpeng. The game ended in a tie. 

If you’re behind in our Crypto World Cup, you can meet all the players here! 

Match 1: Brad Garlinghouse 3-0 CryptoYoda 

Match 1 started off in Brad Garlinghouse’s favor, and it continued that way for the entire game. Less than thirty minutes into the first half, Brad Garlinghouse was up 2-0. The opposing team’s panic was evident, as a card was given to CryptoYoda 13 minutes after Garlinghouse’s second goal. 

Halftime came and went, and the score was still 2-0 to Brad Garlinghouse. Garlinghouse clearly switched to defense in this half. After all, there’s no need to score another goal when you’re up 2-0; you need to make sure the opposite team can’t get an equalizer. 

And that’s exactly what Brad Garlinghouse did; CryptoYoda wasn’t able to equalize in the second half. After spending the remaining half defending, Brad Garlinghouse got antsy for another goal: he scored off a corner at the 90th minute. 

Takeaway:

Brad Garlinghouse: Leader of Group A; 9 Points

Match 2: David Sønstebø 2-1 Erik Voorhees 

Needless to say, this game was a nail-biter. For the majority of the match, it was Erik Voorhees’ game. The American startup founder scored less than thirty minutes into the game — the ball was lofted over the goalie at the 22nd minute. 

But then the atmosphere changed. Erik Voorhees gave up a penalty just before the half-time whistle blew, and that was the start of the David Sønstebø comeback. 

David Sønstebø started the second-half strong, and it was apparent Erik Voorhees had lost the confidence he started the game with. At the 95th minute (5 minutes injury time) David Sønstebø drilled the ball into the far left corner of the net, winning the game. 

Takeaway:

David Sønstebø: Third Place on Group A Table; 3 Points 

Match 3: Tim Draper 1-1 John McAfee 

This game wasn’t as exciting as some of today’s other matches. However, both Tim Draper and John McAfee still put up a good fight — it just wasn’t enough for either crypto player to take on the title of ‘winner.’ 

On the stroke of half-time, John McAfee took the lead, making the game 1-0. And for the majority of the second half, the score remained that way. John McAfee focused both on offense and defense, while Tim Draper attempted to up his offensive game.

And just when it looked like John McAfee was going to get a sneaky win, Tim Draper scored a penalty 3 minutes into stoppage time. The crowd was on their feet. Could John McAfee score another before the whistle blew?

Sadly, no. The game ended 1-1, disappointing fans around the world.

Takeaway: 

Tim Draper: 3rd Place in Group B; 4 Points 

John McAfee: 2nd Place in Group B; 5 Points 

Match 3: Tyler Winklevoss 2-2 Zhao Changpeng 

Yet another game on Monday ended in a tie. This was an odd game — it started out strong, with Zhao Changpeng scoring in the 14th minute and Tyler Winklevoss equalizing 5 minutes later. 

And then the game slowed down. There were no more goals before or directly after the first-half. Both Tyler Winklevoss and Zhao Changpeng tried, but there wasn’t another goal until the 80th minute. 

That’s when it looked like the game was in the Zhao Changpeng bag. With roughly 10 minutes left in the left, plus stoppage time, Zhao Changpeng was leading the match, and it seemed like the odds were good. 

But a minute into stoppage time, after Winklevoss made a few substitutions, the American entrepreneur managed to equalize, making the final score 2-2. 

Takeaway: 

Tyler Winklevoss: Leader of Group B; 9 Points

Zhao Changpeng: Bottom of Group B; 1 Point

Warren Buffett vs. Andreas Antonopoulos – Crypto Currency News

Day 6 of the Crypto World cup has arrived and one of the biggest crypto bears out there comes with it – Warren Buffett! Does crypto reign supreme today or was Warren able to slash his claws and bring it down? Check out all that and more at the Crypto World Cup!

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

Check out the results and highlights of today’s games

Match 1: Warren Buffett 1-2 Andreas Antonopoulos

Warren Buffett is known in the crypto world as a huge bear – in other words, he’s not a fan of crypto, particularly Bitcoin (BTC). So everyone was especially interested in witnessing the match between him and Bitcoin advocate Andreas Antonopoulos.

Buffett fired shots all throughout the game, going so far as to get one past Antonopoulos. But Antonopoulos wasn’t going down without a fight!

Antonopoulos got two shots in, winning the match for himself and for Bitcoin. That’s what the power of Bitcoin is all about people! Take that crypto bears.

Match 2: Don Tapscott 1-2 Jack Dorsey

Jack Dorsey’s gameplay was a pleasant surprise today, doing better than many crypto enthusiasts thought he would. Don Tapscott may have gotten one goal in, but it wasn’t enough to beat Dorsey in a great game.

Dorsey and Tapscott fought hard, but Dorsey came out on top.

Match 3: CryptoYoda 3-1 Erik Voorhees

This was the second match for CryptoYoda and Erik Voorhees. CryptoYoda won in an absolute wipeout his last game, while Voorhees lost to Brad Garlinghouse.

This time around, the streaks continued for both players, CryptoYoda slamming Erik Voorhees. Voorhees did get one goal in, but it was on a penalty and Voorhees’ inability to properly get past CryptoYoda’s defence line showed.

Who do you think will make it into the next round? Who will win the Crypto World Cup?

CryptoYoda vs. David Sønstebø – Crypto Currency News

The first match of the Crypto World Cup came in hot today! Today, CryptoYoda faced off against David Sønstebø. Here are the highlights from today’s match!

If you missed it, don’t forget to meet the players for all our upcoming matches of the Crypto World Cup.

Crypto World Cup Day 1: CryptoYoda vs. David Sønstebø

Fans from all over piled into the stadium this morning, the anticipation mounting among the crowd. It was the first match of the World Cup, and no hopes or dreams had yet been crushed.

Who would score the first goal? Who would win the match? CryptoYoda was the favourite going in, but could Sønstebø pull the wool over everyone’s eyes?

It’s been a while since Sønstebø has entered the competition; the last time he played at this level was in 2006, so the nerves were no doubt in full force. Odds were against him from the start, but that wasn’t going to stop him from giving his all.

The Results

GOOOOOAAAAALLLLLLL! And the crowd goes wild!

In less than 15 minutes, CryptoYoda scored the first goal, and the goals kept coming from there. CryptoYoda went on to score not one more goal, not two more goals, but FOUR more goals, bringing the final score to 5-0 for CryptoYoda.

Poor David Sønstebø, he didn’t stand a chance against CryptoYoda. Today was not his day. Better luck next time Sønstebø, better luck next time. Sønstebø’s going to need to really bring it in his next two matches if he hopes to move onto the next round. But is it already too late?

Tune in tomorrow as the Crypto World Cup continues. There will be three matches tomorrow: Erik Voorhees vs. Brad Garlinghouse; Zhao Changpeng vs. Tim Draper; and John McAfee vs. Tyler Winklevoss. Who do you think will win each match?
