World Cup semi-finals

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!

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!
