Worldcoin has taken another step by launching an NFT project. The NFT project, called ourZORA collectible, commemorates the Worldcoin platform. The collection becomes the first the “Sam Altman backed project” is launching.
Founded over three years ago by Sam Altman, Alex Blania, and Max Novendstern, Worldcoin’s ambitious goal was to create an inclusive and privacy-preserving platform that offers economic opportunities, distinguishes humans from AI entities online, enables global democratic processes, and explores the potential for AI-funded Universal Basic Income (UBI).
The Worldcoin ecosystem consists of two essential components: the privacy-preserving digital identity system called World ID and the digital currency known as WLD, which is distributed to individuals simply for being humans.
The World App, the project’s first protocol-compatible wallet, allows users to reserve their share of the digital currency. By leveraging Orbs for biometric verification, users can obtain a World ID, validating their uniqueness while preserving privacy.
To mark this momentous occasion and celebrate the project’s successful launch, Worldcoin has announced the launch of an exclusive Non-Fungible Token (NFT) collection.
According to Binance, Worldcoin users will also have the opportunity to deposit WLD tokens starting immediately, while withdrawals will be enabled on July 25, 2023, at 09:00 UTC.
In a landscape where AI and blockchain integration is becoming increasingly prevalent, Worldcoin stands out as a project with a vision and a mission to empower individuals globally while safeguarding their privacy, and enabling access to global finance.
However, blockchain personalities such as Jack Dorsey of Block and Vitalik Buterin of Ethereum have expressed their criticism of what Worldcoin represents. “At no time should a corporation or state own any part of the global financial system,” Jack said while Vitalik suggested a better solution to the problem Worldcoin is addressing.
