Satoshi Nakamoto

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.

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!

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!

Crypto World Cup Day 20:Brad Garlinghouse vs. Charles Hoskinson

Today kicked off the quarterfinals of the Crypto World Cup and boy was the competition fierce! Many big names have already been eliminated, but who will be next? Let’s find out!

Today’s competitors: Brad Garlinghouse vs. Charles Hoskinson & Cameron Winklevoss vs. Satoshi Nakamoto

Check out the eight finalists that made it to the Quarterfinals!

Check Out the Results and Highlights of Today’s Games 

Match 1: Brad Garlinghouse 0-2 Charles Hoskinson

Charles Hoskinson came onto the pitch with guns blazing this afternoon and blew Garlinghouse out of the water. Hoskinson held the ball for 62% of the match and had a pass accuracy of 80%.

The match held a total of four yellow cards, but no red cards were thrown despite the heat of the competition.

Garlinghouse took a total of 11 shots during the match, but couldn’t sink any into the net. Hoskinson scored the first goal within’ forty minutes of the match and his second goal came in the 61st minute.

Hoskinson will face the winner of today’s second match on July 10th, in the Semi-finals.

Match 2: Cameron Winklevoss 1-2 Satoshi Nakamoto

Cameron Winklevoss is a six-time Crypto World Cup winner and remains the obvious favorite. He received some serious critique from fans and analysts in his last match, for his dramatics on the field.

During today’s match, Winklevoss took 27 shots, and Nakamoto only took nine. Winklevoss held the ball for 59% of the match and made 521 passes.

There were four yellow cards in the match but no red cards. Winklevoss struck first within the 13th minute of the match, but the ‘kicker’ is that he scored in his own goal giving Nakomoto a goal. Nakamoto struck back nearly twenty minutes later with another goal, making it 2-0.

Winklevoss struck back towards the end of the match in the 76th minute. Nakamoto has never won a World Cup and will face Hoskinson in the Semi-Finals on Tuesday.

Crypto World Cup Quarterfinals | Who Will Move On?

The Crypto World Cup Quarterfinals are finally here!

Well, well, well we have found our final 8!

This year’s knock-out stages were a lot of fun for us watching, not so much for some of our crypto players who suffered devastating defeats (Andreas Antonopoulos anyone? Satoshi Nakamoto’s last-minute winning goal was so incredibly last minute it was hard to comprehend.)

And then there were the penalty shoot-outs — the word “exciting” doesn’t cut it. We had three deciders based on nail-biting penalty shoot-outs: Warren Buffet conceded to Justin Sun, Bill Barhydt to Charlie Lee and Tyler Winklevoss (shocking) to CryptoYoda. 

And while we are on CryptoYoda, let’s look at this closer. Tyler Winklevoss’s defeat to the Crypto World Cup host – can anyone understand this? T. Winklevoss is a kingpin in the world of crypto and to put it in context, the CryptoYoda was mocked by his own people for how poor he was at crypto (well, soccer). But hands up if you’re feeling sheepish now!

Now the host is heading into the quarterfinals and to re-iterate, not even his own people thought he could do it. I love a good underdog so even if the next game doesn’t bode well for him, CryptoYoda can definitely hold his head high and say he did his nation proud.

Our table below will quickly catch you up on who’s left in and who has been booted out:

And as we progress to the Crypto World Cup Quarterfinals we can now concisely see the top 8 and how the battle for a place in the semi’s will look:

Crypto World Cup Quarterfinals

July 6th

The quarterfinals will kick off on July 6th. The first semi-finalists will be decided on that day, and the other semi-finalists decided on the 7th. Today let’s analyze the matches of July 6th.

The first game will see Brad Garlinghouse against Charles Hoskinson at 7.00am PT. That same day has Cameron Winklevoss facing Satoshi Nakamoto at 11.00am PT.

Brad Garlinghouse v Charles Hoskinson 

Two very strong foes. There is injury doubt surrounding Garlinghouse after he limped off the pitch following his defeat of John McAfee. It remains to be seen if he will arrive in full-form to this game. Hoskinson, on the other hand, is incredibly strong in the striking position and all fears of injury on his side are now allayed, being described as only a “minor scare.” He will be a formidable foe for Garlinghouse, who cannot afford to miss a beat in this game.

Cameron Winklevoss v Satoshi Nakamoto

Neither side has faced a bigger test than this in this world cup thus far. C. Winklevoss is a six-time Crypto World Cup winner and remains to be an obvious favorite, although his performance this year doesn’t seem reflective of such an achievement. None-the-less here he is against Satoshi, who narrowly scraped into this round thanks to that last minute goal against Andreas Antonopoulos. It’s arguably an even game in terms of stats. I can’t call it.

Who Will Be Victorious?

We are down to the cream of the crop. I have placed no bets as this year’s tournament has proven to be anybody’s game and I already have a nervous disposition.

I wish all players a good and fair game (and keep the diving to a minimum lads, will you!?).

Here’s to the Crypto World Cup Quarterfinals!
