This will be a Double Round Robin tournament between capped at eight players. Each player plays two games against each opponent. Point system is as follows: wins earn 1 point, draws earn 1/2 point, losses earn zero points.


After doing some research, I think this is the first over-the-board chess tournament entirely in cryptocurrency!

I’m interested, keep me posted


Very important to practice using a clock before the tournament! It’s not just a battle of wit, it’s also a battle of time management. Running out of time, even in a dominant position, is going to be a loss or, if your opponent lacks sufficient mating material, a draw.

Time management is another dynamic to the game that can give you another path to victory. Or it can be a liability that could cause unnecessary losses. Clocks are not to be feared, so make sure you play some games before the tournament to get used to it!
