Following this development, Ottr Finance is sunsetting its wallet as the team joins Tools for Humanity. According to the Ottr team, wallet users can start exporting their seed phrases and private keys to Solana-compatible wallets. These include Phantom and Solflare.

Ottr’s backend will continue to be operational until June 1, 2024 before the Ottr app is removed from App stores.

Meanwhile, the Ottr team will now focus on helping develop the World App – Worldcoin’s digital wallet. Data on the Worldcoin website shows there have been 3.86 million World ID sign ups since the Sam Altman co-created project launched in July 2023.

Users have claimed over 82.6 million WLD tokens since launch, while transactions on the World App have reached 31.1 million in 220 days.
