Worldcoin Issues New Updates; Measures to Build Trust and Transparency

In this post:

  • Worldcoin unveils the ability to unverify World IDs through the permanent Iris Code deletion to provide more control over user data.
  • In-person age verification checks have been implemented to ensure users are above 18 years old.
  • Worldcoin continues to battle negative PR, playing right by data regulation authorities.

The Age of AI is at our doorstep, and Worldcoin is leading the way. It is not benefiting from the attention it receives regarding its negative PR, but the Worldcoin team is doing much to foster crypto enthusiasts’ trust. Worldcoin has released several incorporations and announcements on its blog explaining the new steps and trust users can expect when using the platform.

The organization needs to be open and transparent about how they handle the biometric data to show commitment to users’ privacy amid safety complaints. Worldcoin is driven by World ID, which is a protected digital ID used to confirm humanness.

The concept behind World ID is to create a clear-cut differentiation between bots and humans in this age of AI. The Worldcoin developers also mentioned that World ID is explicitly inaccessible to them. This means that even the developers can only determine humanness but cannot determine or actually unveil the identity of the human.

Today, the Worldcoin team announced two major milestone updates to their policies in a bid to foster trust and transparency. The organization announced Worldcoin’s ecosystem ability to unverify World IDs via a permanent iris code deletion and also new steps to ensure age verification checks. 

According to the announcement, World ID holders can request to delete their data. Once the request is made, the system will immediately make the World ID invalid, and the ID becomes unavailable for verification for a 6- month period. Within the six-month period, the World ID will be set to a “temporary” state before being permanently deleted at the end of the period. These measures have been taken to protect from immediate re-verification, which could lead to fraud.

How Worldcoin adjustments will impact its growth. 

This development has increased personal control on the platform. The increased power of choice that allows users to delete the iris code permanently is a huge trust-building move, a potentiality for a growing platform. Following their Tweet on X, fans got excited, with many comments praising the coin. 

Many fans continuously ask where they can get verified, while others are interested in when Worldcoin will resume its operations in such restricted countries as Kenya, where its operation was illegalized last year.

The update to eliminate underage signups through a special program to roll out on-site age-verification checks at all ORB locations before World ID verification has ensured the project conforms to data regulation. The policy changes to the platform have elicited pleasant reactions among crypto fans, especially after they confirmed that these steps will not interfere with the overall commitment to personal privacy. 

The Worldcoin project has been amended to comply with data regulation by updating underage signup restrictions through a separate project. The on-site age verification checks will be done at all ORB locations before World ID verification. These changes to the project have elicited a positive response from the crypto space. We believe that this is because of the anticipated results that Worldcoin will continue to attract users because of its unique selling proposition and use cases, as well as its commitment to protecting personal privacy.
