Worldcoin Foundation Announces World Chain Developer Initiative

World Chain is described as a new blockchain that prioritizes humans and is designed to scale with the growth of the Worldcoin project in support of all of humanity.

The launch of the World Chain developer preview “provides a unique opportunity for developers around the world to reach more than 10 million people across 160 countries who are using compatible wallets, starting with World App, built by project contributor Tools for Humanity (TFH).”

The preview is now open to “a limited number of participants, interested developers can get access here.”

Reth, a “high-performance” Ethereum execution client developed by Paradigm, will “operate in shadow mode during the developer preview, marking a first for Optimism.”

The developer preview offers an opportunity “for developers to explore, build, test and provide feedback on World Chain before its mainnet launch.”

It also enables builders to set up their deployments “ahead of the migration of 10M+ users from OP Mainnet to World Chain expected later this summer.”

Built on the OP Stack and integrated with the Worldcoin protocol, World Chain is secured by Ethereum as an L2 and “will be engineered for scalability as part of the Superchain ecosystem.”

Developers can start building on World Chain today “ahead of a public launch later this year.”

World Chain is supported by a host of partners “that are committed to delivering the best in-class tooling and infrastructure available to developers choosing to build on the chain, including Alchemy, Safe and Elliptic.”

Additional partnerships will be announced in “the coming weeks, including node providers, analytics companies, wallet infrastructure providers, block explorers, bridges and many others.”

Thibaut Sahaghian, Head of Network, Safe said:

“We are dedicated to achieving self-custodial ownership for every human, and we’re thrilled to support World Chain with Safe’s advanced smart account infrastructure. During the World Chain developer preview, developers can use Safe{Core} infrastructure to create exceptional user experiences for millions of verified humans on World Chain.”

Ryan Wyatt, Chief Growth Officer, Optimism Unlimited said:

“We’re beyond excited to have Worldcoin, one of the largest projects in our space, build World Chain using Optimism’s OP Stack, joining the Superchain and working alongside other core development groups to push the OP stack forward while contributing sequencer revenue to the Optimism Collective. The launch of World Chain’s developer preview marks a significant step forward, enabling Worldcoin’s developers to leverage the power of the OP Stack to build ambitious applications, further enhancing the Superchain’s impact.”
