Portugal has ordered the Worldcoin (WLD) crypto project from the OpenAI CEO, Sam Altman, to “stop collecting people’s biometric data.”

Another project that required users to scan their retinas for “proof of identity” was a major setback in another country.

According to a report by Reuters, the data regulator CNPD in Portugal ordered Worldcoin to stop collecting personal data for 90 days.

Worldcoin, which has been at the center of privacy discussions since the first day, was recently suspended in Spain, India, France, and Brazil.

The Portuguese data regulator CNPD stated in its announcement that more than 300,000 people in Portugal had provided data to Worldcoin:

The regulator justified urgent intervention to prevent serious damage, given the high risk to citizens’ data protection rights. More than 300,000 people in Portugal have provided biometric data to Worldcoin.

Worldcoin was distributing WLD tokens as an airdrop in exchange for retinal scans.
