Hello Steemians! The World Cup got underway yesterday with Russia beating Saudi Arabia 5-0 in the opening match. Amazing display of attack and teamwork from the Russian football team. My personal favorite goal was the third goal by Artem Dzyuba. If you missed the match, do check out the official highlights video from FIFATV below,
However, this post is not to provide you with World Cup updates, rather it is intended to give you an update of the Steem-Oracle Project. I am absolutely humbled by the responses I am getting so far. For the first 3 contests that were posted, there were over 30 predictions each. A big thank you to everyone who has participated thus far! Please continue to support this initiative and spread the word. As more Steemians participate, the more accurate the predictions should be.
Let's take a look at the current predictions by the Wisdom of Steemians so far for the 3 contests,

On a side note, please follow the rules carefully. I am now using scripts to gather the data and look through each entry manually. But moving forward, the statistics and rules checking will be fully automated. So if you do not follow the rules closely, you entry might be voided.
