- The plugin aims to facilitate the interactions of ChatGPT with the Solana blockchain.
- Solana Foundation incubates projects that unify blockchain and AI with a $1 million fund.
Solana Labs, the creators of Solana, enables the integration of OpenAI’s ChatGPT chatbot with the Ethereum scaling network through an open-source plugin. Chiefly, this launch lets users pull in Solana-focused data “directly from ChatGPT,” as per the announcement.
The company released the plugin’s source code on GitHub on Monday, welcoming developers to test and contribute to it. The teams stated that this would be installed as an “unverified plugin.” No official information on the public launch of this plugin to all users is available as of now.
Through this new plugin, users can retrieve data on account balances, details of NFT IDs, and the NFTs held on specific Solana addresses. In particular, this release is also primed to facilitate the transfer of crypto tokens and significantly purchase NFTs through the OpenAI-powered chatbot.
The integration of blockchain and artificial intelligence (AI) is seemingly the prioritized paradigm in the tech ecosystem. Undoubtedly, Microsoft-backed OpenAI’s ChatGPT has laid the foundation. Various crypto entities are curiously coming forth to accelerate this development.
On Monday, the largest crypto exchange Binance unveiled Sensei, its new AI Web3 mentor, to upgrade the way users learn about the crypto ecosystem. Similarly, the crypto trading platform FalconX launched a ChatGPT-powered crypto bot “Satoshi.”
As per a tweet on Apr. 25, Solana Foundation allocated a $1 million fund to support the development of projects that combine the pros of blockchain and AI.
