Price Surge Fueled by Sora

On February 18, Worldcoin announced that the daily active users of the World App surpassed one million. This surge in user engagement coincides with the broader attention on OpenAI’s new innovation and AI technologies.

The Feb. 15 introduction of text-to-video model Sora by OpenAI, which allows the creation of detailed videos up to 60 seconds long, has fueled interest in Worldcoin.

At the current stage, OpenAI only plans to grant access to Sora to a limited number of creators initially, showcasing advanced video-generating capabilities.
