Binance has announced it will list Worldcoin’s native token WLD, which is already available on Huobi, OKX, and Bybit.
Binance revealed the planned listing of the WLD token in a blog post on July 24, stating that spot trading for pairs WLD/BTC and WLD/USDT opened on July 24 at 9:00 UTC.
While users can start depositing the token on the platform, Binance announced that withdrawals would also tentatively open on July 25. Worldcoin’s token will be added as a borrowable asset with WLD/USDT as the isolated margin pair. This feature will open on July 26.

Apart from Binance, Worldcoin has had a broad rollout across many crypto exchanges. Deposits and trading are already open on Huobi and Bybit, with the former supporting WLD/USDT trading pair, while the latter supports WLD/USDT and WLD/USDC trading pairs.
Bybit announced that withdrawals would be available on July 25 starting 10:00 am UTC. Huobi, on the other hand, revealed that the token surged over 5000% since it began trading on the crypto exchange.
According to a press release, OKX also listed WLD with deposits already live on the cryptocurrency exchange. However, WLD/USDT spot trading will begin “once the WLD token deposit meets our requirements,” said OKX.
The token is also available for trading and deposits on Gate.io.
WLD token price up over 50%
The Worldcoin crypto project, co-founded by OpenAI CEO Sam Altman, Alex Blania, and Max Novendstern in 2019, went live on July 24. However, the project has not been free of criticism, mainly because of its iris-scanning functionality, which has raised privacy concerns.
Meanwhile, Altman, in a statement, said that the crypto startup “aims to provide anyone in the world, regardless of background, geography or income, access to the growing digital and global economy in a privacy-preserving and decentralized way.”
Data from Coingecko shows that the WLD token is up 53% at $2.55 at the time of writing.
