Worldcoin (WLD) has unveiled “World ID 2.0” to enhance and revolutionize the online experience of cryptocurrencies. To upgrade the digital identity platform, “World ID 2.0” utilizes advanced iris scanning technology to provide faster and more accurate user verification compared to their previous version. This optimized biometric identification, to differentiate between humans and bots, aims to make digital identity creation more accessible to a wider global audience.
Additionally, World ID 2.0 prioritizes user privacy through selective information-sharing permissions, enabling users full control over what personal data they choose to disclose when establishing their digital IDs. Users can confidently provide only the necessary identification details required for ID authentication or verification.
Furthermore, Worldcoin has launched this innovative tool supporting integrations with popular tools like Shopify, Reddit, etc. to target a wider array of users.
With over 10 million World IDs already in circulation globally, Worldcoin is ambitiously targeting 1 billion user sign-ups by 2025. The upgrades in World ID 2.0 in terms of improved accuracy, privacy, and security demonstrate their focus on making decentralized digital identity mainstream through enhanced user trust and product refinement.
As per the official announcement by Worldcoin, these advancements will help reduce losses caused by unidentified bots. Moreover, it will no longer be mandatory for users to reveal their personal information with the applications they are utilizing on a daily basis. Despite some controversy regarding its data privacy practices, World ID strives to continue to roll out its version 2.0 throughout 2024 and beyond.
