What is Worldcoin?

Worldcoin is an open-source protocol, supported by a global community of developers, individuals, economists, and technologists committed to expanding participation in, and access to, the global economy. The Worldcoin Foundation is the steward, and will support and grow the Worldcoin community until it becomes self-sufficient. Tools for Humanity helped launch Worldcoin, and currently serve as advisors to the Foundation and operators of World App.


Worldcoin is building the world’s largest identity and financial network as a public utility, giving ownership to everyone, with the aim to create universal access to the global economy regardless of country or background. The goal is to accelerate the transition to an economic future that welcomes and benefits every person on the planet.
