An identity protocol allows users to prove ‘online’ that they are not a bot without providing their data

WorldCoin has developed a system that acts like a global digital passport that users can store locally on their devices, allowing them to prove they are real people and share their personal details on the Internet. There are no ‘bots’ without being provided.

The company has launched the technology, which is currently available in beta version in some countries including Spain, which prioritizes the privacy of internet browsers.

This, without sharing confidential information like your name or email.

In fact, the manufacturer maintains that it is designed to protect privacy even “beyond zero-knowledge proofs,” or zero-knowledge proofs, which is an advanced cryptographic protocol used in anonymous distributed systems and high-security systems. Used to build security.

They caution from Worldpoint that World ID does not have any link with its owner’s biometric data or other personal information, such as their telephone number or any other aspect that identifies the user.

Users can identify themselves in the system with data such as their telephone number or opt for biometric verification, by analyzing the iris of the eye with a device called an ORB, “for extreme accuracy,” according to a release. explained by the company.

To use it, you need to download a ‘wallet’, starting with the World app. In addition to Spanish users who already have this anti-VIP access to mobile, web and cryptographic SDK applications, those in Portugal can use the service. , Argentina, Chile, India and Kenya, although “higher deployments are expected later this year.”

Worldcoin recalls that this open source protocol has the support of a global community of developers, individuals and economists who advocate for increased participation and access to the global economy.
