Worldcoin World Chain Developer Preview Launched for Developers Ahead of Mainnet Launch


The Worldcoin Foundation on Monday launched a developer preview of its upcoming World Chain project, giving developers a chance to try out its upcoming blockchain mainnet. Despite facing regulatory challenges in many parts of the world, Sam Altman’s controversial Worldcoin project continues to grow.

World Chain Developer Preview Launched

Instead of choosing the traditional method of testing the upcoming mainnet (using a testnet designed to help developers pinpoint potential issues with the upcoming mainnet), the Worldcoin Foundation has opted to let developers test the blockchain on the open-source development framework OP Stack.

“Worldcoin user transactions currently represent approximately 44 percent of the OP mainnet’s activity, making it the largest application on the network. Often during spikes this rises to over 80 percent, and sometimes even exceeds this limit,” the Worldcoin Foundation said in an announcement on Monday.

World Chain is designed so that Web3 developers can leverage its scalability feature to connect with over 10 million on-chain users in 160 countries via compatible wallets.

The Worldcoin Foundation has decided to keep this blockchain ‘permissionless’ so that ‘all of humanity’ can operate it.

“Everyone will be able to submit transactions to the World Chain, but transactions created by verified people will be prioritized for faster confirmation times. Verified addresses will also receive some free gas,” the Worldcoin Foundation said.

The release of the World Chain blockchain is scheduled to take place later this year, but no concrete timeline has been provided by the Worldcoin Foundation.

The controversial Worldcoin project aims to provide humans with a universal certificate called the ‘World ID’. This ID will distinguish humans from bots and eliminate the need for humans to reveal personal details on the web.

For people to receive this World ID, they must agree to an iris scan via Worldcoin’s own biometric device, called the Orb.

A number of governments have expressed concerns about Worldcoin’s eye scan collection, and cited threats to the security of their citizens, many of whom have already signed up for the project.

As of Wednesday, the project has achieved more than six million World ID verifications. Over the past seven days, 143,620 new accounts have been created as part of the project. In addition, the amount of WLD tokens claimed by project users has surpassed the 208 million mark.
