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!

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.

>> Crypto Finals Preview 

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

Crypto World Cup’s Most Exciting Matches Recap

The first exciting match occurred on Day 2 when Tyler Winklevoss and John McAfee battled it out. The match ended in a draw at 3-3, but that was the first highest scoring match of the competition.

The next match that shocked the world was when Brian Armstrong beat defending champ Roger Ver in Day 4.

Charlie Lee had a phenomenal match in Day 8 of the Crypto World Cup and beat Vitalik Buterin. Buterin is always a tough competitor but that match really propelled Lee, and he’s kept up the momentum ever since.

Day 16 was by far the most epic day of the match as both John McAfee and Vitalik Buterin were eliminated on day one of the Round of 16. Both competitors were anticipated to make the quarterfinals and possibly the semis but were sent home.

So here we are now, after many epic matches, and we have our final players.

Crypto World Cup Finals: Charles Hoskinson vs. Charlie Lee

Both competitors fought hard to get to this point, and they have one match to prove it all. In the latest betting poll via Google, it states that Charles Hoskinson has a 48% chance of winning the match. This is Charlie Lee’s first Crypto World Cup Final match ever, although the betting odds may be stacked against him – but who doesn’t love a good underdog?

Who will become the Crypto World Cup Champ 2018? It all comes down to Sunday.

Good luck competitors, may the odds be ever in your favor!

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?

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.

>>The Crypto World Cup: Meet the Players!

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!
