Crypto Products

Crypto products can be highly risky and their regulatory treatment is unsettled in many jurisdictions. There may be no regulatory recourse for any loss from transactions in WLD. Any value ascribed to WLD may change quickly and may be lost in its entirety. Further, the technologies comprising the Worldcoin Platform, including the WLD token, are experimental in nature. There is no guarantee that the network will operate as planned. For more information, visit Holding, buying, or selling WLD may not be permitted where you live, and it is your responsibility to comply with all applicable laws. Worldcoin (WLD) tokens are not intended to be available to residents of the United States or certain other restricted territories. More details can be found at

Token Features

The native digital cryptographically-secured utility token of the Worldcoin Platform (WLD Token) is a transferable representation of attributed functions specified in the protocol/code of the Worldcoin Platform, designed to play a major role in the functioning of the ecosystem on the Worldcoin Platform, and intended to be used solely as the primary utility and future governance token on the platform. The goal of introducing WLD Token is to provide a convenient and secure mode of payment and settlement between participants who interact within the ecosystem on the Worldcoin Platform, and it is not, and not intended to be, a medium of exchange accepted by the public (or a section of the public) as payment for goods or services or for the discharge of a debt; nor is it designed or intended to be used by any person as payment for any goods or services whatsoever that are not exclusively provided by the issue. WLD Token may only be utilized on the Worldcoin Platform, and ownership of WLD Token carries no rights, express or implied, other than the right to use WLD Token as a means to enable usage of and interaction within the Worldcoin Platform.
