Welcome to the Crypto Olympics: Day 15 – The Finals
Coin vs. Coin – who will be crowned the Crypto Olympics Champ?
Today is the day we’ve all been waiting for, our final round of the Crypto Olympics! It’s been quite the battle of the cryptos these past weeks and our competitors today have fought through struggling markets, sudden drops, and every other crypto twist imaginable. It all comes down to this: Ethereum (ETH) vs. EOS – who will be the ultimate coin?
In case you’ve missed it, these are the rules: we start with two coins and measure their gains and losses between 9:00 am and 4:00 pm PST. When the 4:00 pm finish line hits, whichever coin has gained the most (or lost the least if both coins are down) within our time frame is crowned the winner for the day and moves into the next bracket. We carry on until we end with our ultimate coin – the Crypto Olympics Champ. Today is our last round and by 4:00 pm PST, we’ll finally have our champion!
We will be holding a podium ceremony tomorrow to award the gold, silver, and bronze medals to the appropriate coins.
Obviously, this is just for fun and should not be taken as serious trading advice.
Here’s the layout of how the rounds have gone so far:
Let’s get on with the competition!
Ethereum has fought a good battle up to this point, beating out NEO, Ripple, and Litecoin. The second largest crypto is hoping for yet another win today.
Ethereum is starting the day at $834.41, which puts ETH down only 0.14% in the past 24 hours.
Ethereum is looking to gain enough by 4:00 pm PST to come away the Ultimate Coin. ETH fans are going wild from the sidelines, cheering their coin on.
EOS has been a strong competitor throughout the Crypto Olympics, beating Cardano, IOTA, and, most recently, NEM. The coin is not about to back down now.
EOS approaches the starting line at $7.80, putting the altcoin down 4.25% in the past 24 hours. All that matters now, though, is how much EOS can move from now until 4:00 pm PST.
EOS had a rough drop earlier in the day, but don’t count this coin out yet. EOS is going to fight to the end.
The starting coin goes and these coins are off!
Check back in at 4:00 pm PST to find out who the Ultimate Coin is. Ethereum or EOS – who do you want to win?
That’s a wrap people!
What a great final race! The moment is finally is.
Our winner is…
After a long, hard battle, EOS has fought its way all the way to the top, gaining 1.41% within our time frame. That makes it our Ultimate Coin! And the stands go wild!
Ethereum came away with a 1.38% increase, making it an extremely tight race.
Join us tomorrow for our podium ceremony, as we award the Gold, Silver, and Bronze medals to this year’s Crypto Olympics champions.
