German regulator probes Worldcoin crypto currency – Handelsblatt

BERLIN (Reuters) – Germany’s financial regulator Bafin is investigating the digital currency Worldcoin, German business daily Handelsblatt reported on Tuesday.

“If a company turns to the German market without the necessary permission, for example with a website or app in German, we investigate it,” a spokesperson was cited as saying.

Worldcoin did not immediately respond to a request for comment.
