Worldcoin announces the launch of WLD token, to be distributed to over 2 million people worldwide
Worldcoin releases a signed open letter by Sam Altman, announcing the launch of the WLD token by the cryptocurrency project co-founded by Sam Altman, Worldcoin, and its distribution to over 2 million people worldwide. In today’s statement, Worldcoin promises to accelerate registrations by deploying Orbs in over 35 cities across 20 countries globally. Individuals verified through Orbs will initially receive 25 WLD tokens, as well as future periodic grants. The exact token economics of the project are expected to be announced later tonight. Due to regulatory uncertainty, WLD will not be available for use in the United States.
It is reported that the project is one of the most controversial projects in the field of cryptocurrency. Its focus is to help people verify credentials through iris scanning balls and prove their identity online. Over 2 million people (most of whom are from countries in the southern hemisphere) have been verified, and today they will all receive their deserved WLD token allocation.
Worldcoin has launched on the OP mainnet and is distributing tokens.
The Worldcoin Foundation and the development partner Tools for Humanity announced today that the Worldcoin protocol has launched on the OP mainnet (formerly known as the Optimism Layer 2 blockchain). Optimistic.etherscan data shows that the current total supply of WLD-Optimism is 175,500,064 tokens, with 94,574 holding addresses. The contract address for WLD-Optimism is: 0xdc6ff44d5d932cbd77b52e5612ba0529dc6226f1. Alongside the launch of the Worldcoin protocol, the Worldcoin Foundation has also introduced the World ID system and expanded its World App to more than 80 countries, with plans to increase this number to 120. In addition, market data shows that WLD is currently priced at $1.988, reaching a high of $2.7501.
Worldcoin releases token economics: circulating supply of 143 million, team allocation of 9.8%
Worldcoin has released the token economics for WLD, with 75% allocated to the community, of which the target allocation to users is ≥60%, the initial team allocation is 9.8%, TFH investors account for 13.5%, and TFH reserves account for 1.7%. Over 43 million WLD tokens have been distributed prior to the release. The circulating supply is 143 million, with 100 million loaned to market makers.
dYdX proposal to shift rewards from LP to market makers has been approved, with market maker rewards increasing by 0.85bps
According to the Snapshot voting page, the dYdX proposal to shift rewards from LP to market makers has been approved. The proposal suggests increasing market maker rewards from 0.5bps to 0.85bps and reducing LP rewards by 50%, from 1150685 DYDX/epoch to 575342.5 DYDX/epoch. The reduced LP rewards will enter the reward treasury for distribution through DAO voting. It is expected that this reduction will improve exchange liquidity, reaching or approaching the top of the order book. Economically, it is roughly neutral for LPs, but it will significantly reduce monthly DYDX releases. The proposal has already been approved, and the reduction in LP rewards will require an on-chain vote within a short lock period.
DeFi lending protocol Granary Finance to airdrop early users and LGE participants

Vitalik expresses his views on “biometric proof of personhood”
Vitalik Buterin, co-founder of Ethereum, published an article today titled “What do I think about biometric proof of personhood?” expressing his views on biometric proof of personhood. The article mentions projects such as Worldcoin, Proof of Humanity, and Circles co-founded by Sam Altman. Vitalik also introduces how Worldcoin operates and the main problems it faces, as well as how the team addresses decentralization issues. Vitalik states that Worldcoin faces four main risks: privacy, accessibility, centralization, and security. He also expresses his views on preventing coercion in biometric identification systems and preventing the rental/sale of IDs.
He finally stated that the concept of identity proof seems to be very valuable in principle, although there are risks in various implementation methods, there are also risks without any identity proof: a world without identity proof seems to be more likely to be dominated by centralized identity solutions, money, small closed communities, or some combination of the three. Vitalik believes that in an ideal situation, different technologies such as social graph, general hardware biometrics, and professional hardware biometrics should be seen as complementary and combined together.
