Antaui was created by Nathan Gudmunson, a PHP
developer who was head of development (and chair of
the board) for Worldcoin. Worldcoin is an alternative
crypto-currency which once had a very active
community base and a market cap peak of nearly 24
million USD in late 2013. These coins were produced
at the time of Worldcoin’s peak value, which has fallen
from about 90 cents (USD) to less 1 percent of that.
Like many alternative crypto-currencies, Worldcoin
was an attempt to innovate on Bitcoin to successfully
launch a new, stable, and global monetary system.
While most attempts at such a lofty goal are likely to be
unsuccessful, the innovations that are taking place are
no doubt setting the stage for something even better in
the future. Coins like this are perhaps the only lasting
physical evidence of the long process of technological
and social progress which may one day transform the
world and society we live in with a new concept of
money and all its unknown consequences.

WDC’, with which it is pre-funded. The backside has a
custom hologram covering the entire surface.
