Wise Cryptos at the PDC World Darts Championship
The 6 players flying the Wise Cryptos flag are:
“The Polish Eagle” – Krzysztof Ratajski:
Despite his age (42) Krzysztof is one of the rising stars of the professional darts world. Provisionally up to number 17 in the world, a good run at the world championships could see him edging close to the top 10.
“Heavy Metal” – Ryan Searle:
Currently ranked 48 in the world Ryan has a great opportunity to make a real push towards the top 32 after these world championships.
“Prime Time” – Matthew Edgar:
Former soccer coach and qualified sports scientist and teacher Matthew was the first player we signed to advertise our brand back at the start 2019. Being a shirt sponsor of Matthew all year has confirmed our belief of the benefit of bringing crypto to the public through darts with both being hugely popular topics around the world. Qualifying for the world championships sees Matthew guarantee his professional status for 2020 when he will continue to be an ambassador for our brand.
“Woody” – Luke Woodhouse:
Aged 31, Luke recently made his television debut while sporting the Wise Cryptos logo. Facing what seemed like an uphill task against the world number 6 Daryl Gurney, Luke made a dream television debut by winning his match. The coolness under the pressure of 4,000 fans in the auditorium and the hundreds of thousands watching on TV is the reason we extended our association to include the world championships.
The Riot – Callan Rydz:
The youngster in our band of players at the age of 21, Callan bounced back from the heartache of narrowly missing out on his professional status at the start of the year. Condemned to playing on the challenge tour this year, Callan showed grit and determination to win the tour and his spot at the world championships. This professionalism made him an easy choice for us to have representing the brand for what will be his world championship debut.
Double Dekker – Jan Dekker:
Despite having been on the professional darts circuit for many years, Jan is actually semi-professional as he owns his own company in corporate financial services. This combination of darts and finance made it an easy choice for Wise Cryptos to add Jan to the team for the World Championships. When not playing darts or brokering financial services for his many business clients Jan can often be seen on the Dutch darts TV broadcaster RTL7 offering his expert analysis of matches as a TV pundit.
