‘Of Course’: Jack Dorsey Reacts To List Of ‘Usual Suspects’ Backing Sam Altman’s Worldcoin

Twitter creator Jack Dorsey is the latest among top minds in technology and the cryptocurrency world to raise questions about OpenAI co-founder Sam Altman‘s ambitious project, Worldcoin.

What Happened: Altman’s Worldcoin project, which aims to “increase economic opportunity” and “distinguish humans from AI” has received mixed reactions from the technology community.

Dorsey’s latest tweet about the project strikes an unsurprising tone, responding to a user who pointed out that the Worldcoin project has “usual suspects” backing it.

Some of the prominent Worldcoin investors include Andreessen Horowitz, Coinbase Ventures, and LinkedIn co-founder Reid Hoffman, among others.

Dorsey, who has for long been a cryptocurrency proponent – more specifically, Bitcoin – has come out in criticism of Worldcoin. While he has not explicitly aired his criticism, Dorsey has made his displeasure evident.

“Visit the Orb or the Orb will visit you,” Dorsey remarked at the launch of the Worldcoin project.

Earlier, Dorsey also called out the Worldcoin project, passing a sarcastic comment about the project’s “attempt at global scale alignment”.

Why It’s Important: The Worldcoin project has been criticized by multiple people in the technology and cryptocurrency communities.

Ethereum co-founder Vitalik Buterin was particularly critical of the project, stating that it would lead to a “further erosion of people’s ability to navigate the internet anonymously,” and could lead to “unavoidable privacy leaks”.

Dorsey is familiar with the crypto world too. He has been a proponent of Bitcoin for a long time and donated $10 million as recently as May this year. He is also the CEO of Block, a major cryptocurrency player which helped build the Lightning Network that is trying to make cryptocurrency viable for day-to-day transactions.
