The identity-focused crypto project Worldcoin, co-developed by Sam Altman, announced that it broke a one-day registration record despite local investigations in Argentina. According to Argentine authorities, approximately 9,500 Argentinians had their identities verified in a single day.
Identity Verification Every 9 Seconds
There seems to be a high demand for the World ID service in Argentina for the project called Worldcoin. Furthermore, in a blog post published today, Worldcoin stated that this record signifies the verification of a person’s identity every 9 seconds in Argentina.
The Worldcoin project was officially launched on July 24th and encourages users to register with World ID through iris scanning to digitally prove their identities. For more information about Worldcoin, you can read our article below.
