OpenAI's CEO, Sam Altman, unveils Worldcoin, a cryptocurrency project by Tools for Humanity, featuring the World ID as a "digital passport" to distinguish humans from AI bots.

The beta phase attracted 2 million users, and the launch will expand to 35 cities in 20 countries.

Worldcoin's core is the World ID, using the 'orb,' a silver sphere conducting an in-person iris scan, ensuring human authenticity and trust.

The project extends to 35 cities across 20 nations, rewarding new adopters with the WLD cryptocurrency token.

On Binance, its value surged from $0.15 to $5.29 with $25.1 million in trading volume.

Worldcoin ensures privacy using blockchain technology, safeguarding World IDs from manipulation or control.

World IDs are crucial in distinguishing humans from AI, holding the potential to revolutionize AI interactions and shape the future economy.

Sam Altman envisions a UBI powered by AI, tied to World IDs to combat income inequality and create a fair economic landscape.
