The Solana Foundation has integrated a ChatGPT plugin with the Solana Network. The Layer 1 blockchain wants to improve user experience on the network.
The artificial intelligence industry has been a trendy buzz since OpenAI launched ChatGPT, a conversational AI chatbot, last November. Since then, Microsoft has teamed up with OpenAI to offer generative conversational chats while Alphabet Inc. launched its own ChatGPT rival called Google Bard.
And now, it looks like web3 companies are joining the conversation, with Solana Labs, the team building products and tools on Solana developing a ChatGPT plugin to help users buy and list NFTs, find NFT collections by floor prices, transfer tokens, and checkout transactions, among others.
Solana Labs first teased the plugin via a tweet in late April calling it “an open-source reference implementation for a ChatGPT.” According to the tweet, the plugin lets users interact with Solana Network directly from ChatGPT.
“Users will be able to check wallet balances, transfer tokens, and purchase NFTs once ChatGPT plugins are available,” Solana Labs wrote in the tweet.
The Solana Labs’ new product also allows developers to test and launch their own versions of the plugin by forking its GitHub code.
According to Tal Tchwella, head of product at Solana Labs, the ChatGPT plugin will be able to read on-chain data from multiple sources and disseminate that information to users querying the AI chatbot.
Although the ChatGPT plugin will initially focus on NFTs, there are plans to roll out the service across multiple products in the Solana ecosystem. According to Tchwella, integrating AI with web3 products can help non-crypto native users understand what the industry is all about.
“We believe that the blockchain space is way too technical,” Tchwella said. Bringing the popular ChatGPT service to Solana “offers a new opportunity for people to engage with it and understand what’s really happening.”
Solana Foundation also revamped its accelerator program that focuses on AI products from $1 million in April to $10 million on Tuesday. According to Solana, the initial launch saw more than 50 AI-focused projects apply for the grant program, with a few already selected for backing.
