Also, the daily trading volume for WLD has surged by 80% to $644 million. The Worldcoin (WLD) price has been under selling pressure with a 14% drop over the past week.

Worldcoin Whale Deposits

On-chain data shows that the Worldcoin (WLD) whales have been moving their coins to the exchanges with the possible intent of selling and are not willing to hold longer.

According to insights from on-chain data provider LookonChain, a significant move was observed involving the cryptocurrency $WLD, totaling 624,479 tokens valued at $3.33 million. Reportedly, a whale who had amassed this amount over the past month opted to deposit it into Binance after realizing an approximate loss of $50,000.

As we know, Worldcoin has been unlocking new coins in the market to increase distribution and usage. Of course, this increased WLD supply creates selling pressure on the cryptocurrency. On the other hand, some market players are warning that Worldcoin has been moving away from its goal of universal basic income.

Popular Bybit trader DeFi^2 stated that “Most retail buyers are likely not even aware that Sam Altman currently has no active involvement in Worldcoin and that it’s a completely disjoint entity with no relation to OpenAI at all”. Recent rumors suggested that Worldcoin is reportedly working on an OpenAI partnership. Another popular crypto analyst and economist Alex Kruger, said that it’s no more worth holding Worldcoin (WLD).

Not a coin to hold any longer IMO. The Worldcoin L2 catalyst is already behind. Careful with coins with massive dumping pressure ahread. https://t.co/1UwdsZwOr5

WLD Expansion Continues, What’s Ahead?

Last week, Worldcoin announced that it continues to expand its ID verification services to Peru. Verification through World ID orbs is now accessible in Lima, the capital of Peru. Residents aged 18 and above can now verify their humanity online.

Some market analysts believe that the negative sentiment around Worldcoin might not last longer. Renowned crypto analyst World Of Charts took to Twitter to underscore a recent development: WLD broke out of a bullish pattern several days ago. The prevailing price trend could be attributed to WLD’s retesting of its support. Should the token effectively test this support level, there’s potential for its value to surge to $18 in the ensuing weeks.
