Worldcoin now integrates now with Minecraft, Reddit and Shopify

Worldcoin is a new project that was created by OpenAI CEO Sam Altman - was launched in the spring of this year. Its most recent update of World ID offers a service that allows you to distinguish between humans and bots online. Through creating your own World ID profile and, in the event that you want you want, scanning your eyes.

For instance, the latest integrations offered by Worldcoin permit Shopify proprietors to use World ID for fraud prevention and one-time offers. Reddit moderators may grant permission for users using their World ID to ensure they don't post spam.

As TechCrunch reported, Tiago Sada the head of Tools for Humanity at Worldcoin declared:

"This isn't just talking about the initial waves of apps, but a new developer platform where developers can create," Sada said. "We're curious to see the ideas that developers can come up with. [...] the best ideas directly from the developers."

The extents of the new World ID integration

This integration comes with renewed authentication levels, creating three kinds of world IDs. Firstly, the 'casual' level requires downloading the Worldcoin application and creating a World ID. At this point you don't need to scan your iris - you simply need to create your profile.

The next step, the standard World ID Orb level requires the creation of a profile as well as having your iris scanned by a Worldcoin Orb, in order to verify your identity. Finally, the 'high' (or World ID Orb+ requires the use of facial recognition in order to be able to use the app protocol.

Incredibly, you don't have to add a name when creating an World ID. As Sada said:

"You can use it totally and anonymously. The only thing you're doing is proving you're unique."

Users are able to create a 'casual' World ID per device however, once choose to be scanned by an Orb you will only be able to have only one World ID.

In a speech on the benefits to using the World ID system Sada said:

"It's not yet perfect, but it might aid in preventing people from abusing systems, like having to vote 100 times on a single poll or having hundreds, if not thousands, of accounts,"

Worldcoin security of data concerns

While the crypto project has been growing steadily, it is facing some negative reactions. The year before, Kenya banned Worldcoin from scanning its citizens' iris on the grounds that it failed to inform users of the necessary data and security measures it had taken.

Some critics have voiced concerns that Worldcoin is geared towards developing countries, giving those who sign up with the company 25 WLD tokens (worth approximately $60.50). Despite this, Worldcoin still maintains steady growth with around 5 million users worldwide having an account with a World ID and 2.6 million having scanned their irises via it's Orb hardware.

On Worldcoins development, Sada said:

"Five million people are quite a ways from the entire world (adopting it,)"

"So (2024 2024 is) about making things better, but still reaching out to all those around the globe."
