HiveBuzz World Cup Contest - Semifinals - Recap of Day 2

in Word Cup 2023last year (edited)

Here are the results of the second day of the semifinals

This time that's it, we finally know the names of the teams that will compete in the small final and in the final of this world cup.

France has indeed beaten Morocco which fought courageously to the end but which did not succeed in dethroning the current world champion.

We will therefore have a small final between Croatia and Morocco and the last match of this surprising World Cup will take place between France and Argentina.

Will France manage to retain its title of world champion and even acquire a third? Will Argentina succeed in grabbing it for them? We will know in a few days.


We now have 531 registered participants who will share the 7052 HIVE from the prize pool.

If you want to join and participate, please read the announcement and the contest rules here before making your bet!

Contest distribution and ranking

We are progressing in this World Cup and the ranking is slowly becoming clearer among the participants.

Here is a breakdown by the number of badges:


Here are the top 25 players. Remember that the sooner you make your bets, the higher you will find yourself in the ranking compared to other players with the same score.

Not much change in our ranking except for @azj26 who bet on Morocco and didn't get a badge today. He comes out of the group of five participants likely to catch up with the leading trio made up of @soluce07, @onlyhive and @andyblack.

There are only two matches left to decide. Otherwise, it will be the speed of bets that will make the difference. You have been warned once again.

Get ready! Set? ...

If you are not listed above, you can check the Ranking Page to find out how far you are from the top.
