World Coin (WLD) has announced its launch in Singapore, a week after suspending operations in three other countries.
WorldCoin, founded by OpenAI CEO Sam Altman, says in a new company blog post that its launch in Singapore caps a landmark year for identity verification protocols.

Worldcoin’s orb is a helmet-shaped peripheral that customers use to verify their identity. To use it, an investor must download a wallet compatible with her Worldcoin app, access the orb, and scan their eyeballs as a means of verifying their identity.
WorldCoin says it plans to continue expanding access to its protocol, launching in cities in Spain, Germany, Chile, Argentina, and Japan.
But last week, the project suspended service in India, Brazil and France, coinciding with a roughly 22% drop in WLD prices at the time, without giving a specific reason.
