The project coordinated by Sam Altmanthe co-founder of OpenAI, designed a ” of global digital identities “based on the eye scan. The idea is simple: exploit iris recognition to create unforgeable digital identities.
According to Tools for Humanity, the startup behind Worldcoin, theartificial intelligence raises new questions about “what is human and what is not on the Internet”.

To entice users to scan their eyeballs, the project is distributing a token named Worldcoin (WLD). The protocol was recently migrated from Polygon to Optimism.

The Worldcoin foundation plans to keep 20% of total supply of WLD in order to finance “the production of Orb and the initial development of the protocol”. The token is not currently available in the U.S. due to the current regulatory vagueness on the crypto.
Worldcoin is backed by major investors like a16z, Blockchain Capital and Bain Capital. The digital identities project had also raised funds from several crypto giants that subsequently filed for bankruptcy, such as FTX and 3AC.
