Worldcoin experiences 25% price increase due to rumors of Altman’s return to OpenAI
The cryptocurrency Worldcoin (WLD) has recorded an increase of 25% within 24 hours. This development is due to rumors that Sam Altman, co-founder of OpenAI, could return to the organization.
Price increase despite uncertainty
Despite Altman’s yet unconfirmed return, the price of WLD has reached a peak and was traded at a price of $2.57, which corresponds to an increase of 25.23%. At the time of reporting, however, the price has dropped to $2.40.
Change in sentiment at OpenAI
