World Dollar ($35bn) has just surged past Bitcoin in terms of market cap.* 10,000 WLD is now worth 0.01 BTC, which is worth just more than 5 USD. You can claim your World dollars now from Coin Autonomy, our first Issuer, at www.coinautonomy.com, and you can buy and sell WLD on Ripple at www.rippletrade.com.
World Dollar is the future of money. The key principle behind World Dollar is the Equal Opportunity Standard. This represents the idea that, as money is nothing but a social convention, the ultimate basis for money is for it to be issued to everyone, equally. For this reason, every person is eligible to receive 10,000 World dollars once.
Money, being a social convention, is guaranteed acceptance by virtually the entire human race by adopting the Equal Opportunity Standard.
*This market cap calculation takes 5 USD to be value of 10,000 WLD, and then this is multiplied by the approximate human population at the present time, 7 billion, to give 35 billion USD. Under this assumption, it is held that the total supply of WLD at this time is 70,000,000,000,000. However, please note that the amount of WLD that has actually been "claimed" by people at this time is nowhere near the level of 70,000,000,000,000, and so 35 billion USD is NOT a representative figure for the valuation of all WLD currently in circulation for the purpose of payments and trading.
