Worldcoin Commits to Extend Ban of its Operations in Spain

Reading Time: < 1 minute

Worldcoin will temporarily stop its activities in Spain until the German organization responsible for overseeing compliance with the European Union’s General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) completes its audit, which is expected to be finished by the end of this year.

In addition, Tools for Humanity, a contributor to Worldcoin, has voluntarily agreed to extend the pause on the project’s operations in Spain. This decision comes after various concerns were raised by government agencies regarding the protection of personal data.

The Worldcoin project, spearheaded by Tools for Humanity, aims to create a system where individuals can validate their humanness by undergoing a World ID process through a Worldcoin orb scan, in exchange for WLD tokens.

This process is believed to be essential in the future, where artificial intelligence is expected to play a significant role in online interactions.

Many companies, such as Tools for Humanity, recognize the importance of establishing digital identities for individuals, especially in a future dominated by AI-driven bots. However, this has also raised concerns from government agencies regarding data privacy.
