Kenyan officials are stepping up their efforts to purge the East African nation of the Worldcoin project, accusing it of conducting espionage.
An ad hoc parliamentary committee is demanding Kenya’s IT regulator terminate digital ID and cryptocurrency-maker Worldcoin’s operations in the country immediately, until stronger rules can be enacted, according to Reuters news agency.
Quoting a report published by the committee, Reuters reported that Kenya should “disable the virtual platforms of Tools for Humanity Corp and Tools for Humanity GmbH Germany (Worldcoin) including blacklisting the IP addresses of related websites.”
Several nations have accepted the Worldcoin project, but others, like Kenya have not. There are inquiries in Argentina, India, Mexico, the United Kingdom and Germany, where the project is based.
