Worldcoin Suffers 18% Drop After DeFi Analyst’s Disclosure.

Following a recent claim made against the Worldcoin team and insiders in an X post by DeFi analyst DefiSquared, Worldcoin (WLD) saw significant dumps on Tuesday.

WLD’s value drops by 18%.

Tuesday was a bad day for Worldcoin as its price dropped steadily, falling almost 18%, according to CoinGecko data. On the last day, WLD fell from a peak of $6.23 to $4.64.

A total of $4 million in long liquidations have been initiated by derivatives traders due to the price cash, as WLD is under growing bearish pressure.

The latest charges made against Worldcoin in an X post by DeFi analyst @DefiSquared could be the cause of the crash.

According to him, operator claims and grant emissions, “which are sold almost immediately based on on-chain analytics,” devalue WLD by 0.6% per day. The analyst also stated that when WLD’s team and venture capital unlocks start to vest in 70 days, the company’s supply will start to increase by 4% every day.

He emphasized that $200 million worth of tokens, or 18% of the total amount in circulation, will be sold by the Worldcoin Foundation. These tokens were formerly designated for community allocations. “The manipulative low float/hhigh FDV design is straight out of the SBF playbook and directly enriches insiders as they hedge their locked allocations at high valuations pre-unlock via perps/OOTC,” stated DefiSquared.

He added that Sam Altman is not actively involved in the initiative and that Worldcoin is not associated with OpenAI. Bloomberg did, however, disclose in April that both businesses were considering a collaboration.

Commenting on DefiSquared’s article, renowned crypto researcher ZachXBT said, “Send this scam to zero with haste.”

Requests for responses on these allegations have not yet received a response from the Worldcoin team.
