Solana launches ChatGPT plug-in to help users interact with its network!!

The Solana Foundation launches AI accelerator program and ups grant program to $10 million.

As the artificial intelligence market continues to heat up, a number of crypto players — big and small — are diving in.

The Solana Foundation, the nonprofit organization behind the layer-1 blockchain Solana, has officially integrated AI into its network with a ChatGPT plug-in developed by Solana Labs, the team exclusively told TechCrunch+. (Solana Labs is the team building products and tools for the blockchain.)

The plug-in, which was teased by Solana Labs in late April, will be geared toward end users initially, with a focus on helping them onboard into the web3 space. It can be used to buy and list NFTs, transfer tokens, check out transactions, interpret data and find NFT collections by floor price, Solana Foundation shared.

Solana is plugging ChatGPT into an RPC node that will read data from multiple sources on-chain and disseminate that information to questioning users, said Tal Tchwella, head of product at Solana Labs.

For example, users can ask the AI questions about NFT collections, which NFTs they can buy with the SOL tokens they have in their account and so on. “There’s a lot of places this could be useful … we’re hopeful to see more experimentation by dApps — and that’ll be the exciting part.”

The ChatGPT plug-in will initially focus on NFTs and given that Solana’s NFT sales by volume was about $58 million in the past 30 days, the subsector is likely a good choice given that it is already heavily used by the blockchain and its users.

But there’s also initiatives on the developer front to help accelerate the growth of AI within its ecosystem, too, Tchwella shared.

The ChatGPT integration offers a new way for Solana users and developers to ask the AI service questions, while “making the experience simpler,” Tchwella said. As opposed to reading an 800-page document on a Solana-based project, the AI does it for you and then can share answers to people’s questions.

“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.”
