Since interest peaked and Microsoft invested billions in Chatgpt, the demand for AI-driven crypto-currency projects has increased dramatically. For example, the crypto-currency project Fetch.ai has seen its native FET token increase by 212% in the past 30 days, and another AI project, Singularitynet, has seen its AGIX token increase by 293% against the U.S. dollar.
There is growing interest in AI-driven crypto-currency projects.
During the week of January 22-28, 2023, the Google Trends global theme score for the term “AI” was 94 out of 100. In the first week of December 2022, the search term reached its highest score of 100 on Google Trends. It’s safe to say that the world is increasingly interested in artificial intelligence (AI) since the release of AI-infused art platforms like Dall-E, Deep AI, Jasper Art, Starry AI, Nightcafe and others. In the past couple of months, the Openai Chatgpt or GPT-3 platform has become a widely used AI phenomenon.
Google Trends shows the global search score Term “Chatgpt” was 100 during the week of January 22 to 28, 2023, and it is up since the first week of December 2022. The information also shows that Microsoft has entered the third phase of its long-term partnership with Openai through a “multi-year, multi-billion dollar investment“that funding could reach $10 billion. The growing trend of artificial intelligence (AI) and the demand for this technology has spilled over into blockchain projects incorporating AI into their protocols.
For example, a crypto asset created by the singularitynet.io project has seen its native AGIX token increase by 293% in the past month. Although singularitynet (AGIX) was down more than 6% on January 29, 2023, it has risen 17.5% in the past two weeks. The project aims to support the next generation of decentralized AI. Another blockchain-powered AI project, Vectorspace AI (vspb.science), has a token called VXV that is up 95.9% in the past month. Fetch.ai has seen similar demand over the past four weeks.
In the last 30 days, the Fetch.ai token FET project’s popularity index has increased 212% against the U.S. dollar. The Fetch.ai team claims that the project is creating a “autonomous agent technology“for peer-to-peer applications with automation and AI capabilities, with or without direct access to the blockchain. Another AI-based blockchain project, Ocean Protocol and its ocean token have gained more than 130% in the past 30 days. Ocean Protocol, named a technology pioneer by the World Economic Forum, aims to unlock data at scale through the monetization of encrypted data.
It’s unclear how long the demand for AI-related crypto assets and the popularity of these tokens will last. All AI-related crypto assets are currently ranked below the top 75 in terms of market capitalization and have recently experienced price spikes due to increased interest in AI/Chatgpt.
