The sensational crypto startup Worldcoin turned out to be a scam
In reality, none of the project participants interviewed by journalists saw real money
The year is 2022, which means that the time has come to fulfill the promises made by the founders of the sensational Worldcoin cryptocurrency. Alas, in practice, everything is exactly the opposite – for a whole year we have neither heard nor spirit from them, and none of the ordinary participants in the project received the promised reward. There is another large-scale scam with the collection of biometric data of the population.
Recall that the Worldcoin startup appeared at the end of 2021 and attracted attention by promising a reward in a new cryptocurrency for scanning users’ retinas. In a number of large cities, mainly in Latin America, scanner spheres were installed, with the help of which anyone could register in the Worldcoin system and leave a scan of their retina. For this, they promised a share of the total capital, which will be paid in the future, when the new cryptocurrency gets stronger and becomes much more valuable than at the start.
In reality, none of the project participants interviewed by journalists saw real money, and their accounts in the project system were blocked. There is also no connection with the organizers, despite the fact that they managed to attract a certain amount of real investment. as well as there is no information about who and for what purposes now uses the collected scans of the retinas. It is possible that these biometric data were simply sold to interested parties.
