Worldcoin has announced its integration with major platforms, including Shopify, Mercado Libre, Minecraft, Reddit, and Telegram.
The company’s reach is expanding, with recent onboarding operations commencing in Mexico and Singapore. Its ambition to make Orbs available worldwide is part of a broader strategy to achieve mainstream adoption despite facing challenges like the recent ban in Kenya over data privacy concerns.
Worldcoin Adds More Integrations
Worldcoin’s World ID 2.0 is a protocol that aims to enhance online verification processes. Tiago Sada, head of product for Tools for Humanity, highlighted its effectiveness in distinguishing between bots and verified humans for platforms like Shopify, Mercado Libre, Minecraft, Reddit, and Telegram.
“It’s a much easier way for developers to build integrations. We’ve rebuilt the way it works… So they know you’re not spamming. This is not just about the first wave of applications, but a new developer platform where developers can build. We’re excited to see what people come up with […] the best ideas come from developers,” Sada said.
The company has introduced three distinct authentication levels – casual, standard, and high. These range from a simple profile creation in the Worldcoin app to more robust security measures involving iris and facial recognition scans. According to Sada, users can maintain anonymity while proving their uniqueness.
