Introducing the Orb: Unlocking Your Crypto Destiny

Worldcoin revolves around three key elements:

  • World ID – your personalized biometric digital identity, with the company promising to guard your privacy fiercely
  • Worldcoin token (WLD)– a digital currency, will be generously distributed among users for free during sign-up
  • World App – WLD can be used to transact through the World-ID compatible app called World App.

Sounds like a cosmic trio, doesn’t it?

Beta Tales: Controversies Amidst Innovation

Even in the universe of groundbreaking technology, challenges await. During beta testing, Worldcoin faced its share of doubts. Hackers sneaked into Orb operators’ devices, causing a ruckus. And then, there were whispers of Worldcoin’s quest for test users in developing countries – an exchange of biometric profiles for money. Drama and innovation, hand in hand!

The Case of WLD Tokens

Ah, the intrigue of cryptocurrency! Worldcoin has capped the total supply of WLD tokens at 10 million for the next 15 years. But here’s the twist: the company already holds a cool 20 percent of the tokens. With only 143 million tokens in circulation at the global launch, you might want to hold on tight to yours.
