Recently, OpenAI CEO formally re-introduced a Worldcoin project of his that was eclipsed by the popularity of ChatGPT.

About Worldcoin Project: 


  • It is an initiative to create a digital network in which everyone can claim some kind of stake, and join the digital economy.
  • This venture runs on a simple model: allow your eyes to be scanned in order to prove your human uniqueness, and receive some crypto and an ID (called a World ID) in exchange.
  • Using a device called “Orb,” Worldcoin volunteers known as ‘Orb operators’ scan a person’s iris pattern to collect their biometric data and help them get a World ID through the World app.
  • With the app, scanned participants can collect a cryptocurrency called Worldcoin [WLD] at regular intervals or make transactions with their World ID where possible.
  • This process is called “proof of personhood” and makes sure that people do not sign themselves up multiple times in exchange for crypto.
  • Worldcoin claims it is building the “world’s largest identity and financial public network” open to people worldwide.
  • Worldcoin lists 18 locations — largely in Delhi, Noida, and Bangalore — where Orb operators are scanning people’s eyes.


Q1)  What is Cryptocurrency?

Cryptocurrencies are digital or virtual currencies that use cryptography for security and operate independently of a central authority, such as a government or financial institution. These digital currencies use blockchain technology, which is a distributed and decentralized ledger to record transactions securely.
