Worldcoin is a cryptocurrency startup company under the leadership of the former CEO of Y Combinator, Sam Altman, Alexander Blania and Max Novendstern. Worldcoin announced its intention to give every person in the world its cryptocurrency on the condition that they get their eyes examined.

Alexander Blania revealed that although Worldcoin working towards a formal launch, they are working harder on perfecting all that it would take to circulated cryptocurrency to everyone in the world as soon as possible.

So far, Worldcoin has successfully raised $25 million through funding rounds and some of its investors are Reid Hoffman, Day One Ventures, Andreessen Horowitz and others.
