Binance, the world’s largest cryptocurrency exchange, has officially listed Worldcoin (WLD), the highly anticipated digital asset founded by Sam Altman, CEO of OpenAI. The announcement, made today at 12:00, has attracted considerable attention from the global crypto community, with investors eager to join this new venture. Trading pairs like WLD/BTC, WLD/USDT, and WLD/USDC will be available for trading.
Worldcoin (WLD) has ambitious goals to empower humanity in the Age of AI and revolutionize the digital identity landscape in the era of artificial intelligence. The project introduces the World ID system, Orb with iris scanner, and World App wallets, all governed by the WLD token. Despite initial privacy and security concerns expressed by experts, Altman is confident that Worldcoin’s open-source AI technology with iris scanning capabilities will address these issues over time.
In addition to Binance, several other prominent exchanges, including OKX, Huobi, Bybit, and Gate.io, have embraced the listing of Worldcoin’s WLD token, generating a positive and optimistic response from the market. Notably, during its initial trading on ByBit, the token experienced an impressive surge, soaring to a peak of $2.79 within mere minutes of its introduction. The total token supply of 10 billion has contributed to the WLD token’s fully diluted value, which currently stands at a remarkable $25.6 billion.
Sam Altman’s mission to provide universal access to cryptocurrency has resonated with investors worldwide. The World ID system, authenticated through iris scanning technology known as “The Orb,” aims to establish a trustworthy global identification system for all individuals. Jack Dorsey, co-founder of Twitter, has shown interest in World ID’s potential to distinguish between real humans and AI-generated entities, expressing confidence in its bright future.
With $115 million in funding from its Series C round, the project is expected to make significant strides toward achieving its goals. However, as Worldcoin gains momentum and potential implications on the economy and universal basic income emerge, the ultimate consequences of this ambitious endeavor remain uncertain.
