Worldcoin is a new global digital currency that will launch by giving a share to every single person on earth. We believe that the transition to a native financial layer on the internet is an important step for humanity. It is free, frictionless and not controlled by anyone. This transition has already started on a small scale for insiders, but cryptocurrencies have failed to reach mass adoption over the last 10 years. Worldcoin aims to rectify this by creating a new cryptocurrency and distributing it to everyone on earth through a novel approach: a dedicated hardware device ensuring both humanness and uniqueness of everybody signing up, while maintaining their privacy and the overall transparency of a permissionless blockchain.
