Sam Altman launches his eyeball-scanning crypto project.

Worldcoin, the OpenAI CEO’s “privacy-preserving” cryptocurrency, is starting its global rollout today. The initiative claims to provide a “reliable solution for distinguishing humans from AI online” by scanning people’s retinas with an orb-shaped biometric verification device to create a unique user ID for the currency’s World App crypto wallet.

The founders want to give it away for “free” in some regions, which has caused some prior controversy.
