Recent data indicated Worldcoin [WLD] and Litecoin [LTC] were among the top trending tokens on the 6th of May.

However, a closer examination revealed that these assets were trending for distinct reasons.

Worldcoin and Litecoin lead trending tokens

However, by the end of 6th May, LTC had slipped to third place, while WLD maintained its position as the top trending token. 

Santiment attributed Worldcoin’s trend to controversial remarks regarding potential illicit financial activities, particularly those related to Artificial Intelligence (AI).

In contrast, Litecoin garnered attention due to anticipation surrounding the possibility of a future ETF. As of the latest update, WLD ranked fourth on the trending list, while LTC was eighth.
