England world cup

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.

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:

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!
