This change is going to be implemented for all Orb operators around the globe covering almost all regions. The project claimed that paying the Orb operators in USDC tokens was part of the transitional phase that marked its official launch on 24 July 2023.

However, some Orb operators received payments in the form of WLD token during the pilot phase. The project iterated that starting in November, all the operators will start receiving remuneration in the form of WLD tokens.
