Binance has made an official announcement about the listing of Worldcoin’s native token, WLD. This token is already available on other platforms like Huobi, OKX, and Bybit. Binance shared the news in a blog post on July 24, stating that spot trading for WLD/BTC and WLD/USDT pairs commenced at 9:00 UTC on the same day.
Although users can now deposit WLD on Binance, the platform plans to enable withdrawals tentatively from July 25. Additionally, Binance will include Worldcoin’s token as a borrowable asset, with WLD/USDT as the isolated margin pair, starting from July 26.
Apart from Binance, Worldcoin has been widely introduced on numerous other crypto exchanges as well. For instance, Huobi and Bybit have already opened deposits and trading for WLD. Huobi supports the WLD/USDT trading pair, while Bybit supports both WLD/USDT and WLD/USDC trading pairs.
Bybit revealed that withdrawals for WLD would be available from July 25 at 10:00 am UTC. On the other hand, Huobi reported that the token experienced a significant surge of over 5000% since it started trading on the exchange.
According to a press release, OKX has also listed WLD, with live deposits available on the platform. However, spot trading for WLD/USDT will begin once the WLD token deposit meets OKX’s requirements.
Furthermore, the WLD token is tradable and depositable on Gate.io as well.
The price of the WLD token has risen by over 50%, reaching $2.55 at the time of this report. The Worldcoin crypto project, founded in 2019 by OpenAI CEO Sam Altman, Alex Blania, and Max Novendstern, officially launched on July 24. However, the project has faced criticism, particularly due to its iris-scanning functionality, which has raised privacy concerns.
Sam Altman stated that the crypto startup aims to provide global access to the digital economy in a privacy-preserving and decentralized manner, regardless of an individual’s background, geography, or income.
