Worldcoin is transitioning to pay its Orb Operators, which can scan people's irises, in its native token, Worldcoin (WLD), phasing out USD Coin (USDC) from November. This step is part of the transitional phase after the project's official launch in July. Approximately 100 million of the 134 million WLD tokens invested were distributed as loans to market makers, while the rest went to Orb operators and new users as free grants. Market makers will now return or purchase the remaining 25 million, increasing the loan expiration to December 15. The WLD token's price, after a post-launch dip, currently levitates around $1.64.
