Cameron Winklevoss vs. Brian Armstrong

Day 18 of the Crypto World Cup was full of dramatics and broken hearts. Today’s big match was between Cameron Winklevoss and Brian Armstrong. Day 18’s second match was between Satoshi Nakamoto and Andreas Antonopoulos.

Yesterday, saw the losses and elimination of two defenders in the Crypto World Cup – John McAfee and Vitalik Buterin. Instead, Charles Hoskinson and Brad Garlinghouse have advanced and will face each other Tuesday in the Quarter Finals.

Meet the players of this year’s Crypto World Cup.

Check out the results and highlights of today’s games

Match 1: Cameron Winklevoss 2-0 Brian Armstrong

Cameron Winklevoss ended up on top of this match but received a tremendous amount of critique from fans and analysts. Soccer players and other professional athletes are known for their dramatics to pull a yellow card, and Winklevoss was laying on the drama thick today.

Winklevoss scored the first goal of the match in the 51st minute. Overall, there were six yellow cards in the match. The top 16 was set to have tough battles, and it did not disappoint. The pressure will only go up from here.

Cameron Winklevoss is set to face the other matches winner this coming Friday.

Match 2: Satoshi Nakamoto 3-2 Andreas Antonopoulos

The second match of the game was a tight race, with goals scored left and right. The first half of the match was silent, as neither opponent scored. Just after the half, Andreas Antonopoulos scored within the first three minutes.

Then, about four minutes later he scored again! Nakamoto retaliated back about ten minutes later, and the comeback began. Five minutes after the first goal, Nakamoto tied it up, and the fans had themselves a heated match! With two minutes to go in the match’s extended time, Nakomoto shoots one into the net.

What a match it was and Nakamoto ended up on top.

Satoshi Nakamoto will face Cameron Winklevoss, in the quarterfinals on Friday.

Crypto World Cup Day 18

Welcome to Crypto World Cup Day 16!

We are down to the final 16 and this round gives no second chances; if you lose your match you are out. 

To arrive at the final 16 required tenacity and teamwork; it was a battle of the best and brightest but only the strongest have made it through. 

Today’s two games were Vitalik Buterin v Charles Hoskinson and John McAfee v Brad Garlinghouse

Match 1: Vitalik Buterin 3-4 Charles Hoskinson

What a game. This is the knock-out stage of the tournament and its a sad day for Vitalik Buterin as he bows out (somewhat gracefully) with a loss to Hoskinson.

Victory was made by one small but vital goal difference, as the two crypto figures kept at each others toes in this exciting game.

Hoskinson kicked us off early with a penalty goal at 13 minutes but it was Buterin’s cracker at 41 minutes which give him a much-needed boost of confidence. Suddenly it seemed the game came alive.

He created one of the most spectacular goals we’ve seen the Ethereum co-founder produce reminding us of his brilliance. 

However, he was matched (and then some) by Hoskinson who has always been a prominent force in this tournament. His four goals were nothing short of spectacular (especially the volley at 57 minutes which was controlled and showed his technical prowess.) 

Towards the end, frustration was clear to see on Buterin’s side, causing the referee to hand out yellow cards as if they were flyers. He desperately scrambled to find a fourth goal to level the game.

It never came. 

Hoskinson goes through and the disappointment was all over Buterin’s face as he is now sent home. His fans are the true victims of course. 

Match 2: John McAfee 1 – 2 Brad Garlinghouse

This game saw another world favorite sent home — John McAfee. Garlinghouse started well with a goal at 7 minutes which shook this game up. The draw came during the second half at 55 minutes but McAfee didn’t bring out the big guns until after Garlinghouse’s 62nd-minute goal. Some have scratched their head over this, as it was too late. Brad Garlinghouse was too strong and McAfee just could not find another goal.

What a start to the knock-out stages. With McAfee and Buterin out, this tournament is now wide-open.

Crypto World Cup Day 15

Day 15 of the Crypto World Cup had some neck-to-neck matches. There were four matches in total today but all eyes were on the Justin Sun vs. Satoshi Nakamoto match. Today’s matches concluded the final day of round one of the Crypto World Cup!

Meet the players of this year’s Crypto World Cup.

Check out the results and highlights of today’s games

Match 1: Jack Dorsey 0-1 Warren Buffett

Jack Dorsey came up short today as he lost to Warren Buffett by only one goal. It was a tight match and Buffett scored in the 74th minute. There were only two yellow cards the entire match.

Dorsey will not be moving on to the Round of 16. However, Buffett did make it past the first round of the Crypto World Cup and will face Justin Sun on Tuesday.

Match 2: Andreas Antonopoulos 0-1 Don Tapscott

Andreas Antonopoulos came up short today in his match against Don Tapscott. However, that didn’t really matter as Antonopoulos scored enough points in the previous matches of the first round to push himself to the top 16.

Tapscott scored in the 59th minute of the match and there was only one yellow card thrown.

Despite his best efforts, Tapscott did not make the cut. Antonopoulos will face off against Satoshi Nakamoto on Monday.

Match 3: Justin Sun 0-1 Satoshi Nakamoto

Justin Sun fell short today, losing to Satoshi Nakamoto 0-1. However, both players have scored enough points in the previous matches to push them through to the Round of 16.

Nakamoto scored in the 51st minute of the match and only two yellow cards were thrown all match.

Nakamoto will face off against Antonopoulos on Monday and Sun will face off against Buffett the following day.

Match 4: Tom Lee 1-2 Jed McCaleb

Jed McCaleb slid past Tom Lee today with a victory of 2-1. Neither competitor scored enough points in the beginning matches and this match was more of a “friendly” competition.

This is the end of the road for these two competitors in the Crypto World Cup.

Stay tuned for tomorrow’s post as we announce what other competitors in the Crypto World Cup made it to the Round of 16!

  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.
