Crypto World Cup FINALS | Charles Hoskinson vs. Charlie Lee

It’s the Crypto World Cup Finals! And the crowds go wild! Charles Hoskinson is facing off against Charlie Lee in what is perhaps the biggest and most highly anticipated crypto competition EVER. It all comes down to this. Who will be victorious? Who will win the cup?

Time to find out crypto fans!

Charles Hoskinson 4-2 Charlie Lee

It was the fight to end all fights, the battle to end all battles, the crypto to end all cryptos! But in the end, Charles Hoskinson came out on top, beating out Charlie Lee for crypto champion.

The first goal of the game went to Hoskinson, less than 20 minutes into the game. Unfortunately for Lee, he wasn’t using his head today—or, rather, he used it to score on himself. That’s right, the first goal of the final match was a self goal by Lee. Bad luck!

Amped up now, Lee was desperate to even things up, and even things up he did! The second goal of the game went to Lee, this time into Hoskinson’s net, a mere ten minutes later.

Another ten minutes and Hoskinson scores a penalty goal, bringing the score to 2-1 to Hoskinson.

The second half of the game was just as exciting as the first. You can’t ever say there’s a dull moment with Hoskinson and Lee, champions in the world of crypto.

Hoskinson scores his third goal of the game, followed by his fourth. Lee, feeling the pressure now, manages to get one final goal in, but unfortunately for Lee it’s not enough, and the game ends 4-2 to Hoskinson.

So there you have it, folks, Charles Hoskinson wins the very first Crypto World Cup! Congrats to all our players; it has been a pleasure watching you all!

And that is a wrap! What a competition it has been! Full of surprises, some tears, and a whole lot crypto fun.

Crypto World Cup Day 23

Whelp, that just happened. Day 23 of the Crypto World Cup has Charlie Lee facing off against Justin Sun and, boy, is it a doozy!

In a nail-biting turn of events, Charlie Lee manages to just scrape by a win, as Justin Sun plays a messy game.

The Crypto World Cup is almost over now. All that’s left now are the third-place play-off and the highly anticipated final game. Be sure to check back in on Sunday for the final match of the season!

Let’s take a closer look at today’s game

Charlie Lee 2-1 Justin Sun

Many people, including myself (perhaps wishful thinking on my part), thought Justin Sun had this game completely in the bag. But, Lee showed just how strong he really is in the world of crypto and whooped Sun hard.

Things started bright in the world of Justin Sun today. A mere five minutes into the game and Sun had already scored a goal – and what a beautiful goal it was! The TRON Dogs were going mad with celebration as Sun held of Lee for a large portion of the game.

Justin Sun made it out of the first half of the game still in the lead one – nil. He continued his lead through much of the second half of the game as well, but then disaster struck, and Charlie Lee managed to put one in the goal with about 20 minutes left in the game. Now, the TRON Dogs were going mad with rage.

To the dismay of Sun supporters and the utter glee of Lee fans, the clock ticked down and the game ended in a tie, 1 – 1. The match went into extra time, and Sun looked to be going between stages of fighting hard and losing all hope.

Then, all hope really was lost for Sun, as Lee scored his second – and ultimately winning – goal of the game. With only ten minutes left in overtime, Sun was looking pretty defeated.

As some would say – Charlie Lee didn’t win that game, Justin Sun LOST it.

But, c’est la vie. Lee now moves onto the finals against Charles Hoskinson, and Sun must be content to retake Satoshi Nakamoto for third place (and the TRON dogs must lick their wounds).

Who are you rooting for now? Charlie Lee or Charles Hoskinson?

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 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

Tom Lee vs. Justin Sun

Day 11 of the Crypto World Cup has come to completion but who ended the day on top?

Sunday’s matches included:

  1. Tom Lee vs. Justin Sun
  2. Andreas Antonopoulos vs. Jack Dorsey
  3. Don Tapscott vs. Warren Buffett

In matchday one, Andreas Antonopoulos defeated Warren Buffet 2-1. Jack Dorsey defeated Don Tapscott 2-1 and CryptoYoda defeated Erik Voorhees 3-1.

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

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.
