OpenAI CEO Sam Altman’s Worldcoin Project Secures Additional $100M Funding for AI-Related Problems 

Sam Altman’s Worldcoin crypto project is reportedly on the brink of securing an additional $100 million in funding as the launch of its World App draws near. According to an exclusive report, Altman, CEO of OpenAI, is working to secure the funds to address AI-related problems through the Worldcoin project. 

Last year, Worldcoin raised $100 million through a private token sale, with Andreessen Horowitz leading the investment round at a valuation of $3 billion. With the forthcoming launch of the World App, the project is poised to continue its mission of harnessing the power of cryptocurrency to tackle some of the biggest challenges facing AI. 

The new open-source protocol that has been launched by World App intends to use IRIS scanning to enhance the security of a new digital currency. The protocol is powered by the Worldcoin wallet app and is now live following its release on May 14th. 

Sources report that funding for this groundbreaking project will be derived from a diverse mix of both existing and new investors. Although the precise valuation for this funding round remains undisclosed at present, it is worth noting that this infusion of capital is distinct from the initial private token sale. 

Altman’s Worldcoin, spearheaded by The Worldcoin Foundation (WF), revealed its plans to launch on Optimism on May 11th. The project will have a dual focus, aiming to tackle two key challenges: distinguishing between human users and automated bots and introducing a form of universal basic income to alleviate job losses resulting from AI advancements. 

As generative AI models continue to disrupt industries, experts in the field have voiced their support for implementing some form of universal basic income. This measure seeks to counteract the negative impact of job displacement caused by these innovative AI workflows, specifically putting workers in the “knowledge sector” at risk. 

OpenAI surpassed 100 million users quickly, and Altman wants to solve the predicament he helped create with Worldcoin. TechCrunch predicts that differentiating between human-human communication and human-AI interaction will be extremely difficult in the future. 

Altman believes that cryptocurrency and blockchain technology hold the answer to the existential threat posed by AI. Worldcoin is integrating cutting-edge biometric IRIS scanning techniques with distributed ledger technology to address the pressing challenge of leveraging AI for a better, fairer, and more equitable world without causing widespread job displacement. 

Worldcoin chose Optimism as its launch platform to contribute to the “Superchain vision.” The Worldcoin Foundation and Tools for Humanity (TFH) have committed to supporting Optimism’s goals. 

Since the launch of the World App, Worldcoin has gained significant traction, boasting over 1.7 million users, 60,000 daily wallet transactions, and 25,000 daily World ID checks. 

With the emergence of powerful “Super Apps” like Elon Musk’s Project X and Tencent’s WeChat, the competition for dominance in the AI-powered Super Apps market has intensified. Now, the OpenAI ecosystem is joining the fray, leveraging its expertise in the crypto space to establish a competitive advantage in the burgeoning “super” market.
