Police Raid Worldcoin Warehouse in Nairobi

Kenyan police have raided a warehouse belonging to WorldCoin cryptocurrency in Nairobi, seizing documents and machines believed to store data gathered by the firm. The government has suspended WorldCoin’s operations in Kenya due to security concerns, and investigations into the company’s activities are underway. WorldCoin, founded by US tech entrepreneur Sam Altman, offers free crypto tokens to people who agree to have their eyeballs scanned. The company claims to be creating a new global “identity and financial network” but has faced criticism and scrutiny from privacy experts and regulators in several countries. WorldCoin has plans to collaborate with the government before resuming work.
