Why does Worldcoin use iris biometrics?

Biometrics provide an exceptionally sensitive method to verify uniqueness. And our research showed that iris scanning offers the most accurate biometrics with an acceptable user experience. The iris has strong fraud resistance and data richness, which means it can be used as a fair and inclusive way to differentiate among billions of unique human beings.

Because commercially available iris imaging devices did not meet our technology and security needs, our team had to create our own. While approaches such as KYC and fingerprint scanning have limitations, our proprietary Orb technology enables Worldcoin to establish the most inclusive digital identity and financial network for millions of individuals. Verifying uniqueness through the iris is the most inclusive solution for users around the globe.
