A woman who goes by the English name Emma said she recently took her husband to Seongsu-dong in Seoul to have his iris scanned after Worldcoin resumed its service in Korea.”Worldcoin is not a meaningless coin. It was developed by Open AI CEO Sam Altman. There’s a high possibility that the coin’s value will increase in the future. If it happens, you can transfer the coins accumulated in your app to a crypto exchange account and convert them into cash for a tidy profit,” she said.Since having her irises scan in February, she has monetized 280,000 won ($204.48) from the coin.Including Emma, an increasing number of Koreans are looking to register their irises for Worldcoin to receive free coins.

Under the slogan “For Every Human,” Worldcoin uses a device called the Orb to scan people’s irises as “proof of personhood.” After verification, it links the data to its blockchain system and creates a personal ID and digital wallet.In exchange for signing up to the protocol, participants receive 10 Worldcoin tokens in one swoop. Every two weeks, three additional Worldcoin tokens are continuously credited to each individual’s wallet.Since the start of this month, Worldcoin has resumed its iris registration services for the public in six key locations in Seoul, including COEX in Samseong-dong, Yeoksam-dong, Seongsu-dong, Euljiro, Yongsan and Yeouido.The resumption comes two months after the service was suspended in Korea following allegations of illegal use of personal information.According to one orb operator in Seoul, although their branch accepts reservations for up to 100 people per day, all slots are filled for the foreseeable future on both weekdays and 카지노사이트킹 weekends.
