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!

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!
