The Solana Foundation has finally caught up with the AI bug and has decided to work on some interesting stuff that is at the intersection of blockchain and artificial intelligence (AI). As a result of this, the Solana Foundation has announced $1 million in small-scale grants that would range from $5k to $25k.
Solana said that both the new as well as existing projects can apply for the grant. The Solana Foundation believes that the blockchain’s high throughput and scalability offer a unique opportunity to build new ideas using artificial intelligence.
“These grants are meant to encourage the Solana ecosystem to explore new use cases of these novel technologies,” they added. However, to be eligible for the grant, the tool of dApp built atop the Solana blockchain should meet three criteria:
- It should be publicly available for others to use.
- It should be open-sourced when launched.
- It should have a source code that is always available to the Solana Foundation.
Solana Implements the ChatGPt Plugin
As we know, the introduction of OpenAI’s ChatGPT has created a major uproar in the global tech industry. ChatGPT is slowly turning into everyone’s go-to place for finding new and interesting stuff as well as the answer to most user queries.
In an interesting development, Solana Labs has created an open-source reference implementation for a ChatGPT plugin that will allow users to interact with the Solana network directly from ChatGPT.
Some users have also tried a hands-on experience with sending some SOL to a specified address using ChatGPT. In response, ChatGPT provides them with the exact steps required to sign and submit the transaction. Of course, users need to have a Solana wallet with sufficient funds for the transaction to go through.
Similarly, users can also ask ChatGPT to purchase Solana-based non-fungible tokens (NFTs) by specifying the price they are willing to pay. Besides. ChatGPT can also show all the NFTs that a particular Solana addresses holds.
