Worldcoin was released today upon an unsuspecting investor community, reaching a market cap of $22 billion USD:
Seventy-five percent of the supply will be allocated to the Worldcoin “community”, 9.5% to the initial development team, and 13.5% to Tools for Humanity investors (ie. the VC team who may or may not dump the token the first chance they can).
So the “initial” development team is sitting on tokens worth a cool $2 billion. I should have taken programming courses in university, but no, I wanted to be a writer.
Anyways, what is Worldcoin? Well, it’s…different:
“Worldcoin is one of the most audacious projects in recent memory—a company directly out of a sci-fi movie, with a promise to gift individuals crypto tokens if they scan their eyeballs using a futuristic orb.”
I don’t have any tokens. I am too squeamish.
But the Winner for BEST Crypto Project this Summer is…
No, I am not making this up. We now have the ability to bet on livestreamed hamster races:

I am not a financial advisor. Betting on hamsters is especially risky and in no way do I condone the activity of hamster racing, although I find it hilarious, and I consider it less stupid than having your retina scanned by a weird-looking orb.
I do not own any Worldcoin tokens. I do not own any Hamsters tokens at time of publication.
I do however reserve the right to buy Hamster tokens in the future.
I have never bet on a Hamsters race but I do reserve the right to bet on future Hamster races, especially on the weekends and if I have been drinking.
