We are giving Worldcoin to everyone on Earth, for free. Reserve your free share today.
Worldcoin is a collectively owned global currency that will launch in the next few months. Our goal is ambitious: to become the largest and most inclusive cryptocurrency network in the world by giving Worldcoin to everyone, for free.
We believe that everyone has the right to complete privacy and anonymity. Our systems are designed to give you total control over your data. You decide how much, if anything, you want to share.
The App lets you create a digital wallet, find an Orb Operator and reserve your free share of Worldcoin. When we launch, you’ll be able to claim your free share in the App. Until then, the App will show you how much Worldcoin you are due to receive.
In the meantime, you can earn Bitcoin, Ethereum and Dai just by learning about them, with many more features on their way. Soon you will be able to receive airdrops of other cryptocurrencies, learn about Worldcoin and interact with the world of crypto, all from within the App.
The Orb checks that you’re real and that you haven’t signed up before. How? By capturing and processing images of you and your unique iris pattern. Since no two people have the same iris pattern and because these patterns are very hard to fake, the Orb can accurately tell you apart from everyone else without having to collect any other information about you—not even your name.
Importantly, the images of you and your iris pattern are permanently deleted as soon as you have signed up, unless you choose to share these images with us so that we can continue to improve the accuracy of the Orb. Either way, the images aren’t connected to your Worldcoin tokens, transactions or App.
World ID is your anonymous digital ID. Soon, everyone who signs up at an Orb will receive one. World ID will be the most private ID you’ve ever had: it will tell everyone that you are real (not a bot) and unique (you only have one World ID), without revealing anything else about you, not even your wallet address.
A true gamechanger, World ID will allow you to fairly and anonymously participate in airdrops, democratic digital voting systems, platforms that only want users to have one account, and much more. World ID will be your gateway to the future of the internet.
The Worldcoin Software Development Kit (SDK) will allow developers to use the World ID system to build applications free of bots, duplicate identities and spam. Think of all the things developers could do if they knew every account on their application belonged to a real, unique person. The possibilities are endless…
From fairer airdrops to democratic digital voting systems, the Worldcoin SDK will usher in a new era for the internet by serving as an essential primitive for Web3.
