Sarcasm Sunday #18 - Qatar 2022 Football World Cup = Crypto Holiday

By PVM | Mind Puzzle | 29 Nov 2022


One week of World Cup Football is gone, and this took my focus from Crypto. I think I checked CoinGecko less then 10 times last week, and slacked on the couch for hours. I am curious if my mobile screen time will get lower then usual. Are you ready for football related sarcasm and just a little pill of crypto news?

The Qatar 2022 World Cup is the last big stage event that Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi will share, and their last chance to lead their teams towards the ultimate crown. It's the final boarding for the GOAT(s).

I don't have a favorite in the Messi v Ronaldo debate, as both are GOATs. Just to mention that Cristiano is the first ever player to score in 5 different World Cups. He started in 2006 and marked the record with his goal against Ghana. He still has at least 2 games to add more goals to his impressive career.

Speaking of GOATS ... been to a farm and this dude was posing at people! I had a paper cup with food and the dude stole it from my hand, spilled the food and eat the paper cup.

One of the things that shocked me was the additional time... with some insane numbers added at the end of each half. England v Iran had 10 minutes added on the board but the second half was extended even more with the VAR debate over Iran's penalty.

Another thing that shocked me was the upper class culture showed by the Japanese fans. They beat Germany and they cleaned up their sector before celebrating. They have a league of their own! RESPECT!

Expensive pints in Qatar, but free ones in a pub in London! Everyone can have free drink during all Italy and Scotland games at the World Cup! Are you in for a freebie? It's as genuine as telegram airdrops!

Is it soccer or football? It's not even a debate as you can't call football a game where you pick an "egg" in your hands and run with it. It's called football because you kick a ball with your foot! Also the world cup will be watched by 1 bullion people while the Super Bowl audience was 114.4 million viewers.

In case you are reading this from Qatar, make sure you use the right toilet! Keep in mind that rainbows are banned and you can get arrested if you are drunk in the community. Just imagine what will happen if you enter the women's toilet by mistake!

The "One Love" rainbow armbands were a hot topic, as FIFA said a big NO. The teams idea to wear rainbow armbands in support of the LBGTQ community was banned. This came just a day after Qatar banned beer from the stadiums. However, Marmite launched a rainbow Elton John edition ... you either love it or you hate it!

There is a whole team of stars missing the World Cup, including Sadio Mane, Timo Werner, Paul Pogba, Budweiser or Reece James. I seen that the fans can buy a pint outside the stadium, in special zones, and pay 20 dollars for it!

If the crypto market kept diving to new lows, I managed to pull a 4x on a tenner! Played some corners bets on Mexico v Poland, France v Australia and Germany v Japan to earn few quids.

Argentina and Messi wasn't as lucky as I was, as they lost against Saudi Arabia! This is so shocking as they had 23:1 odds at the start of the game and 67:1 after Messi scored in the 10th minute. Do you remember the Saudi NFT collection? MAX STAKING BROS!

It's a celebration, and football gave me a crypto break! Now tell me that Christmas is coming without telling me Christmas is coming. I just bought a Baileys' Yule Log as a weekend treat!

I got into festive mood while taking the children to McDonalds! Just give me that "Dad of the Year" award for the Elf Boss drawing. Worth saying that the McDonalds staff seen it and asked me if they can pin it on their event board ... and I accepted the free shilling. You want it as an NFT?

Crackers Christmas Tree looks like a palm tree... and don't get me wrong ... is nothing wrong with palm trees and the festive period. However, it's a reason why you shouldn't put Christmas lights on them.

Nomis Protocol - Scoring and Credentials for Better DeFi Products

I said I had a crypto break, but that was only during the football games. The hustle never stops and a man must provide for his family. The Cryptoverse exploration continued and I found Nomis Protocol, an open-source wallet scoring and credentials protocol created to helps on-chain developers to build better Web3 DeFi products. Every transaction and on-chain data is collected and shaped into credit scores. The date can be use the history and reputation for better DeFi lending terms.

Nomis v1.2 can be used to check your wallets score and on-chain reputation based on DAO activity, NFT credentials, age and transaction history. My Ethereum activity is small, and my Nomis score is only 43.
