However, not all of them feature the 26-year-old co-founder of Ethereum. Some speculated about it Between praising Derek Parfit and figuring out the scalability, Vitalik could be hiding his true chess skills.

In addition to building the world’s largest smart contract platform Vitalik could be most notable as the inventor of a chess variant. In 2019, “1.58-dimensional chess” made its debut on a pyramid level.

And what would a mind sports game be without on-chain prediction markets where viewers could bet on the outcome? The forecast market Yieldwars offers a market for the game with “winner takes all” options for each side, while the Omen Prediction Market offers weighted payouts.

Until now, The market believes Vitalik will have a tough night. Presented as King vs Queen, the Yieldwars market has only raised $ 500 in stakes right now, and the punters prefer Botez. Meanwhile, Omen has raised over USD 650 in stakes once more he bowed heavily to the chess streamer.

A possible option for the disadvantaged founder? An irregular opening. The weekend editorial team at Cointelegraph humbly suggests the orangutan.
