  • The Solana Foundation has created an open-source reference implementation that allows users to interact with the Solana network from within ChatGPT, facilitating actions such as buying NFTs and transferring tokens.
  • Solana is integrating artificial intelligence (AI) to make its blockchain more usable and understandable. Developers should consider interacting with applications through AI models, which represents a new approach to communicating with computers.
  • Solana has seen a spike in activity due to high fees on Ethereum and Bitcoin. The average number of new addresses has reached its highest point in a long time, and Solana’s native token, SOL, has seen a significant recovery and a 101% increase in value this year.

The Solana Foundation announced that it has developed an open-source reference implementation that allows users to interact directly with the Solana network from within ChatGPT, via a downloadable plugin on Github.

This Solana Labs integration serves as a guide on how AI can make Solana data and protocols easier to understand and can be used for various actions such as buying NFTs, transferring tokens, inspecting transactions, and analyzing public account data.

Anatoly Yakovenko, the co-founder of Solana and CEO of Solana Labs, emphasized that AI will make the Solana blockchain more accessible and understandable for users.

He also highlighted the importance for consumer app developers to consider interacting with their apps through AI models, as this represents a new paradigm for giving instructions to computers.

Solana has seen a spike in activity recently due to high fees on Ethereum and Bitcoin, which has led some users to explore alternatives. The network has seen a significant increase in new addresses compared to the past few months, with a seven-day moving average of 323,000 addresses last week, the highest number since June 2022.

Solana’s native token SOL has seen a remarkable recovery since its crash last year, up 101% year-to-date. It is currently trading at 20 USD.

In addition, the Solana Foundation has increased the amount available in its AI-focused grant program from $1 million to $10 million and has already received 50 applications for new projects. They have also launched a three-month accelerator program for college students, which includes a cohort dedicated to experimenting with blockchain and AI.
