Spain Bans Worldcoin Operations Over Data Privacy Concerns

Spain's data protection agency, AEPD, has imposed a temporary ban on the operations of Worldcoin, a cryptocurrency project co-founded by OpenAI CEO Sam Altman, due to concerns over the collection and processing of personal data. The AEPD emphasized that the processing of biometric data, which is subject to special protection under the European Union's General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), entails high risks for individuals' rights. The AEPD has received several complaints against the company, citing insufficient information, the collection of data from minors, and the inability of users to withdraw consent, among other alleged infringements.
