~ 50K WLD

Lead by David Chaum - a pioneer in cryptography and privacy-preserving technologies, Zanzibar’s breakthrough encrypts biometric scans immediately and can test for a match with the encrypted database without ever decrypting.

Zanzibar is a privacy technology enhancement for Worldcoin’s “proof of personhood” - and for the privacy and security problems of a wide range of other biometric uses as well.
