WLD now available on Coinhako

WLD now available on Coinhako

We are thrilled to share that Worldcoin token (WLD) is now listed on Coinhako.

What is Worldcoin and WLD?

Worldcoin is an iris biometric cryptocurrency project that aims to provides a reliable solution for people to verify their human identity, and differentiate themselves from bots and AI algorithms.

Worldcoin is developed by and co-founded by Sam Altman (creator of ChatGPT) and the WLD token is its native cryptocurrency to facilitate global transactions and act as a medium for payments, purchases, and transfers within the ecosystem.

There is a max supply of 10,000,000,000 WLD and WLD has traded for $10.99 at its peak back in early March 2024.

How does Worldcoin work?

At Worldcoin’s core is World ID, a concept that utilises the groundbreaking Proof of Personhood (PoP) via the cutting-edge iris-scanning device called the Orb.

When the Orb scans a user’s iris, it captures the unique structure of the iris and generates an IrisCode, a special identification code — this code is not tied to any personal information and exists solely to prevent any single individual from acquiring multiple World IDs. Once the iris scan is complete and securely stored a unique World ID is issued to the user. Each generated World ID is added to the Worldcoin blockchain and the iris images are then permanently deleted.

The World App functions like a crypto wallet with a few additional features. It is tied to the user’s World ID and allows it to be used with Worldcoin’s related services, such as Worldcoin grants. Other World ID benefits include Learn-to-Earn courses for new users to learn more about crypto and earn BTC, ETH and more on the World App and gas-free transactions when using the wallet.

Why does WLD stand out?

Designed with the citizens of developing nations in mind, World ID aims to be a decentralized, privacy-protected identity solution that allows each user to prove that they are, indeed, a unique individual.

It is like a digital passport that lets you remain anonymous while proving that you are a unique and real person. The data stored is protected by zero-knowledge technology, which is used to verify a user’s personhood without revealing their actual identity or their online habits to counterparties.

The World ID is simply proof that the user is verified and can be trusted to be an actual human user and not tied to the actual biometric data. The use cases of the World ID include allowing users to "sign in with Worldcoin" on a website, mobile app or cryptocurrency DApp.
