Blast Premier World Final is finally here. This will be the last tier 1 CS2 tournament this year. 6 of the top 8 teams are competing for a share of the $1M prize. Vitality looks solid after winning the Fall Final in November while teams with recent roster changes look shaky (ENCE, Heroic, Mouz). Frozen first match with Faze seems convincing though, let's see how they'll fare against G2 today.

My picks for today's matches

BetBoom vs VP in BetBoom Dacha CS will start in a few minutes. It'll be interesting to see whether BetBoom can pull off another upset like they did against C9 yesterday. The 3.00 odd for BetBoom seems attractive considering that.



Not sure if anybody else caught the IGN video game awards show last night:
Glad to see Cyberpunk getting some love again. The comeback arc of this game has been amazing since its crappy launch in 2020.

I was not expecting Jito airdrop to be that massive. I'm surprised that there weren't even 10k eligible wallets for the airdrop. I posted about it last month 2 weeks before the snapshot, hopefully someone read it and implemented the strategy.

For me, staking during a bull run has been akin to hitting two birds with one stone as enjoying the rewards from staking and potentially benefiting from the rising value of the staked assets.
Same case here. Staking Solana in the past months has been not just hitting two birds for me, but more because of the potential airdrop from several projects. I mainly stake it on Jito, then deposit those JitoSOL into margin.fi. Both protocols (Jito and Margin) have points system which likely is meant for their upcoming airdrop. So with that strategy I got:

  • 7% SOL yield
  • Rising SOL price
  • Jito points
  • Margin.fi points

That's four birds with one stone.

Anyway, good list OP! Jupiter airdrop will also have 4 phases, so it's still highly recommended to use the protocol regularly (where else would you swap duh Cheesy). Another thing, Solblaze already had a token $BLZE, though they still have a reward system for users who stake and provide liquidity for $bSOL

Is it was available just recently.  However, could people buy it presale and if so how much was the cost and what was the max amount you could buy?
There was no presale for $JTO.

Only farmable criteria is 5th one, and for that you should have used StarkEx before June 1st 2022. You see snapshot has been taken so early, this should exclude most of farmers.
The image linked in tvplus post is incomplete. In the original leak, the first criteria is Starknet users (image link). I don't think the snapshot for Starknet users will be the same as StarkEx as there wasn't much of anything in Starknet back in 2022. The activity in Starknet started picking up in Q2 when ArgentX launched the Xplorer campaign. Taking the Starknet snapshot before Q3 2023 would make a lot of people disappointed Cheesy

Anyway, when do you guys think the token release will be? I'm hearing it's going to be January next year.

Surprisingly your bets both went to 2-0 in your favor @dbshck !
So congrats on those wins to you!
That Complexity comeback was one for the book, wouldn't have predicted it either Cheesy Nice win indeed.

Amazingly Faze Clan's streak remains with their last game which just ended with an stellar double OT against Cloud 9.
Twistzz said he had to take a new role as AWPer to win the match. Hence going with two while C9 went with none that last round which helped them win that to make it to the semis.
Yeah, can't believe FaZe did it again. They really almost lost it on Anubis, 9-11 with only pistols but were somehow able to steal the round.

I wasn't sure MR12 would work at first but I do enjoy it now. Seems overtime and comeback are more often with the new format which makes it more interesting to watch.

Finally a T1 counter strike LAN is back as blast premier fall final starts today

The first match is Faze vs NIP and faze are reaaally big favorites at 1.2 odds. This is also the debut of new NiP igl alex so a bet on nip handicap might not be a bad idea..
It was way to early for me to watch this match but seen the result at the end with Faze winning it cleanly.
"FaZe have now won their last 10 LAN best-of-threes after beating Ninjas in Pyjamas in their Fall Final opener. Their seven-map pool came in handy once again, diverting the veto to Vertigo (13-6) and Nuke (13-9), and showing the championship form we are now used to seeing from FaZe in Counter-Strike 2."
source: https://www.hltv.org/news/37567/faze-extend-win-streak-to-16-with-opening-win-over-nip
Wonder how long can FaZe keep their winning streak. With all the roster changes in effect, this tournament could be another easy trophy for FaZe. Also, there's no ENCE, G2, and Mouz. Their closest competition is Vitality, but then again this is Vitality's first tournament with a new roster (-Magisk +mezii).



That said, I'm still going for Vitality for their match against Heroic because Heroic roster is an even bigger mess at the moment Cheesy

I used Solona Dapp but honestly first time i am hearing this name. I checked my EVM and Solona wallet by connecting, unfortunately not eligible for this airdrop. @dbshck is so lucky and got huge airdrop. I hope the price will be above 0.5$. Unofficial trading already started in Kucoin. If anybody want to sell then pre listing sell options is also available but I will recommend to hold. People are selling below 0.4$ price.
Sorry to hear that. Seems the eligibility criteria is quite strict on this one. Yeah I feel very lucky, didn't expect that even the pre-market OTC could reach above $0.4.

I am eligible for Solona another airdrop comes from Jupiter Exchange. If anybody interected then he is eligible 100 percent.
What an exciting time to be a Solana user now. Airdrops from major dApps all over the place and there's still a lot more to come: Margin, Jito, Drift, etc. 2024 will be so fun.
10  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Speculation (Altcoins) / Re: Pyth network retrospective airdrop eligibility checker live on: November 14, 2023, 03:25:47 PM
Kucoin created an OTC market for the upcoming $PYTH token. It's currently trading at $0.3, equivalent to $3B FDV which is around 20% of $LINK FDV.  https://twitter.com/SolBulletin/status/1724426462315372704

What do you guys think? Are you expecting a higher or lower price after the launch?
11  Economy / Gambling discussion / Re: ESports betting -CS:GO, DOTA 2, LOL, Valorant - Sportsbet.io discussion thread on: November 13, 2023, 12:52:03 PM
FaZe Clan are on a tear and were looking in form during this tournament in Shanghai.
Did you hear they had the longest match for CS2 during the match they had against Ninjas in Pyjamas? 53 rounds if I am not mistaken while watching one of those programs on Counterstrike news.
"FaZe Clan and Ninjas in Pyjamas have set an interesting new record early on in CS2. During the CS Asia Championships 2023, the pair set a new record for the longest LAN match in CS2. The pair were playing for a spot in the Semi-Finals of the tournament, with the loser heading down to the Quarter-Finals."
source: https://www.esports.net/news/csgo/longest-cs2-lan-match-record-broken-by-faze-and-nip
Ah, I must've missed that. I didn't really follow that tournament until the semi-finals Cheesy

It's amazing how many times FaZe were close to losing but miraculously came back and then won it in overtime. In that NIP match FaZe was down 11-5, then forcing it to overtime somehow in their CT side.

The same thing happened last night too. Against ENCE they were down 10-4 on the last map Anubis but somehow managed to force it to overtime yet again and winning it. This is with the grand final spot on the line.  Also on Nuke against Mouz in the grand final, down 12-5 before winning 6 CT rounds in a row to force overtime. Their ability to remain calm under pressure and maintain focus until the very end is truly remarkable.

G2 Esports had removed their team from the CS Asia Championships tournament which has already started today:
"G2 have pulled out of the CS Asia Championships, the organizers of the $500,000 tournament taking place in Shanghai, China on November 8-12 have announced."
source: https://www.hltv.org/news/37351/g2-pull-out-of-cs-asia-championships

According to the article the team is undergoing a rebuilding process the same as Team Liquid had also stated was the reason for their absence of the tournament in Shanghai.
Lynn Vision is currently going up against Tyloo who I am familiar with in this region of CounterStrike play.
This tournament looks like another easy $250K for FaZe. They are still unbeatable since IEM Sydney. Rooting for them to keep the win streak against ENCE later today, and also in the grand final should they make it.



If they really win this tournament, that's 3 trophies and $600K prize money within a month. What a way to start their CS2 journey, reminds me of peak NIP.

Anyway, I haven't seen it yet but somebody told me that OKX tweeted something and it looks like it's something to do with Layer Zero.  After the Binance one, these mofos are prolly just taking advantage of the fact that a lot of folks in CT are waiting for the airdrop?  :/
This tweet yeah? https://twitter.com/CC2Ventures/status/1722820021640937562

Agree LOL this whole LayerZero prediction starting to give conspiracy theory vibes in it. Also good for farming engagement I guess. But anyway I wouldn't complain either if they really did it sooner. The current trend makes it a perfect time to do an airdrop.
15  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Speculation (Altcoins) / Re: Layerzero Speculation airdrop on: November 08, 2023, 09:54:05 AM
Thats right mate everyone is hoping for one too. But maybe will get some even though the farmers at layerzero are too huge. They should really filter bots or sybil here to protect real users.

Btw guys have you seen this? Not sure if this is a layerzero related case but it seems it is.

https://twitter.com/binance/status/1721513080100622756?t=Z4CvsASO8LyRpMgt3lQmPA&s=19

https://twitter.com/leshka_eth/status/1721522053851893837?t=D5I7vQCNYkOREQ5oFrzNdA&s=19

Speculations but cant seem to be ignore especially layerzero is quite noisy now.
This turned out to be the announcement for Binance's own Web3 wallet https://twitter.com/binance/status/1722154485928317010. So not related to LayerZero at all Cheesy



Anyway, update regarding the SSL certificates, seems LayerZero team is denying the rumor. Their CEO said that they weren't the ones who initiated the SSL cert registration. Screenshots here https://twitter.com/KashKysh/status/1721874133305184531
16  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Altcoin Discussion / Re: Best sites for trading / investing technical discussion / analysis? on: November 06, 2023, 02:39:07 PM
Thanks. Is there a particular section of this site where TA and PA is discussed, or is it just on th alt section and btc section?
Yes, you can discuss TA/PA in speculation sections, Bitcoin Speculation and Altcoin Speculation.

Regarding other places to discuss crypto TA, it's mostly on Twitter, Telegram, and Discord. Start with following some crypto Twitter accounts who likes to share TA, over time you may stumble upon some high quality group/chats in Telegram or Discord.
17  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Speculation (Altcoins) / Re: Time to invest AI coins? on: November 05, 2023, 12:40:00 PM
Now Ai coins are in trend. FET, AGIX and OCEAN are suppose to be good for investment. What do you Think? Time to invest AI coins or you avoid?
A solid AI coin that isn't mentioned often is Bittensor ($TAO). It's designed as a decentralized network for machine learning models, so it's not just another token on an existing blockchain—it's an entirely independent network. Getting started was somewhat complex due to the requirement of its own wallet software. I still haven't got a deep understanding of how it operates, the project seems like one of the more promising AI project out there.

In terms of speculation, its current FDV is already high at $550M, so we probably won't see a 100x type of run. But a 5x from here should still be possible IMO if they don't fumble it.
18  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Speculation (Altcoins) / Re: Layerzero Speculation airdrop on: November 05, 2023, 06:21:53 AM
That's an SSL certificate.  And according to some guys Arbitrum airdropped a couple of days after they created their SSL certificates.  :/  So we'll prolly have an announcement in the next coming days from the Layer Zero devs?
This SSL certificate discovery certainly caused a stir, with LayerZero Q4 airdrop predictions hitting 75% on Polymarket at peak yesterday. But it has going down back to 44% now.



Man...  Now that I feel it's really coming the lesser I think I am of my eligibility.  Like how I used Arbitrum, it was all real, organic usage.  No bs farming.  But my transaction volume for both is over 10k.  I hope it's enough.
Yeah with over 3 million wallets already farming not sure how much we can get from it. Hopefully they implement a robust sybil filter for this one.
19  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Speculation (Altcoins) / Re: Pyth network retrospective airdrop eligibility checker live on: November 04, 2023, 03:02:13 AM
It appears that only my Solana wallet qualifies, despite my extensive activity across various EVM-compatible platforms. Most likely none of the dApps I've engaged with are using Pyth as Chainlink is the preferred choice usually. Still better than nothing.

If $PYTH can get the same FDV as $LINK, we could potentially see $1 per $PYTH token. That's the optimistic scenario. Realistically though, I would estimate the price to settle in the range of $0.1 to $0.5.
