Welcome to the Crypto Olympics: the Podium Ceremony!
What an amazing Crypto Olympics it was! There were some nail-biting moments, some joyous moments, and even some tears, but we made it through at last, and we finally have our Ultimate Coin!
Today, we will be awarding the gold, silver, and bronze medals to the appropriate coins and check out how each coin is doing now that the games are over.
The gold medal is awarded to our Ultimate Coin, the coin who fought through many battles and came out on top through it all.
EOS is our crypto champion! EOS fought through four rounds, ultimately winning the finale and being crowned the Ultimate Coin.
EOS is currently selling at $8.27, putting the coin up 6.41% in the past 24 hours – in true winner’s fashion.
The silver medal goes to our runner-up coin, Ethereum. Ethereum started out as a strong leader but was just pipped to the post by EOS in the final round by 0.03%. Ethereum is nothing but a graceful loser, however, and ETH congratulates EOS on a great match.
Ethereum is currently selling at $874.24, which puts the coin up 4.88% in the past 24 hours.
The receiver of our bronze medal is decided between the two semi-finalists that were knocked out by EOS and Ethereum on Days 7 and 14. This comes down to Litecoin and NEM, and whichever coin grew the most during its round…
…And the bronze medal goes to NEM! During its semi-final round, NEM grew by 1.05%, whereas Litecoin lost 1.38% during its semi-final round against Ethereum.
NEM is currently selling for $0.400910, putting it up 4.31% in the past 24 hours.
Hopefully, the Crypto Olympics has shown you that the crypto world is unpredictable, at best. Whatever coin won in its bracket really came down to chance and luck. When trading or investing in crypto, it’s important to keep this in mind. Things can turn suddenly, and a coin that was doing well for several rounds consistently can plummet drastically only hours later. That’s why it’s important to do your research and keep your eye on the tokens you invest in, and, even more importantly, don’t invest more than you can afford to lose.
