WLD Falls As Musk-OpenAI Lawsuit Emerges

-WLD is reckoned as a unique proxy bet on OpenAI, a burgeoning AI company owned by Sam Altman

Worldcoin’s native token (WLD) declined in early European trading as reports surfaced of an unexpected lawsuit against artificial intelligence firm OpenAI filed by lead investor Elon Musk. Regulatory filings revealed Musk is accusing OpenAI and CEO Sam Altman of contractual breaches made when co-founding the company in 2015.

OpenAI maintains close ties with controversial startup Worldcoin, where Altman serves on the board. The project’s dubious aims involve scanning human irises globally in exchange for digital identification and tokens.

By late Friday morning, WLD sank 2.2% over the past hour while broader crypto markets represented by the CD20 dropped 0.57% in tandem. The revelation of tensions between Musk and OpenAI leadership seemed to dampen sentiment.

This news arrives on the heels of Microsoft announcing multi-year multibillion-dollar backing for OpenAI in January 2023 to accelerate artificial intelligence breakthroughs for public benefit. Unlike Microsoft however, Musk owns no formal OpenAI stake.

According to the Financial Times, Musk’s lawsuit focuses on ensuring OpenAI sticks to its original vision for developing transformative AI that equally serves humanity rather than specific groups. This emphasis likely resonates given Worldcoin’s questionable motives around mass eyeball scanning.

The unfolding drama captures wider market attention as developments across the AI sphere often dictate sentiment tied to related crypto assets. Last February, ALT and ENG saw double-digit price pops as chipmaker Nvidia’s earnings topped estimates and OpenAI unveiled an anticipated text-to-video generator.

With outsized influence and cultish followings, soap operas starring Musk and his orbiting projects frequently trigger cryptic token market moves. How Worldcoin navigates its OpenAI affiliation challenges could determine future price volatility.
