The iris biometric crypto project called Worldcoin has made a deal with the Kenyan government to start working again in Kenya. Worldcoin representatives are working with government officials to follow Kenya’s rules.
“Worldcoin plans to start using iris scanning in Kenya again in early 2024. “
According to a report, Worldcoin may have made a deal with Kenyan officials to start using their iris biometric cryptocurrency project again with new rules. The report said that this will probably happen in early 2024, but it didn’t say who told them.
Worldcoin plans to start giving out WLD tokens again to people who let their eyes be scanned. This comes not long after the government in Kenya stopped this kind of activity. According to Bitcoin. com News, Kenyan authorities were clear that Worldcoin didn’t have the right permission to operate in the country.
After being stopped, Worldcoin representatives went to Kenya and went in front of the country’s lawmakers. But, a report from Citizen Digital says that Worldcoin may have addressed the concerns of regulators.
Worldcoin is talking with government officials to follow Kenya’s rules, especially as the government is thinking about making new laws. “Stipends will continue and will be available in more places all over the country,” a source without a name said.
The report didn’t say when the Kenyan parliament will approve new rules for data that will affect companies like Worldcoin.
