    Just because I were curious enough to check this out, from Wikipedia:

    Worldcoin aims to provide a reliable way to authenticate humans online, to counter bots and fake virtual identities facilitated by artificial intelligence. Using a distribution mechanism for its cryptocurrency similar to UBI, Worldcoin attempts to incentivize users to join its network by getting their iris scanned using Worldcoin’s orb-shaped iris scanner.

      Does it also mention that he basically deployed it exclusively in the third world, in places that the regulations were/are lax?

        I think you got it backwards. The scanning was available everywhere, including the US… where the lack of privacy regulations allowed him to siphon biometric data without giving any crypto in exchange.

        He isn’t a “crypto bro”, he’s a guy who hyped the danger of AI in order to get as much biometric data as possible, everywhere.
