Discussing the integration of AI and Crypto undoubtedly stands out as one of the most prominent hot topics in today’s tech landscape. For a long time, due to inherent differences in technology, much like the illustration in ueth blog post, people might assume that these two domains only have a slight overlap. However, with the rapid advancement of technology, their deep integration has become a prevailing trend.

It is not hard to notice that the production process of AI models — from data collection, model training, to subsequent application — all require significant resource inputs. This has often led to the monopolization of AI model production by large enterprises, as they control the sources of data and the model training process, thereby exacerbating industry exclusivity. However, the characteristics of Crypto may bring about a turning point in this situation.

The distributed nature of Crypto provides us with a new way of storing and validating data. Within this schema, each user can manage their data clearly and decide how this data is utilized by AI. This not only safeguards user privacy but also ensures the legitimate use of data, providing richer and more compliant data resources for AI model production.

Furthermore, the transparency of Crypto brings greater openness to the production and usage processes of AI models. Leveraging blockchain technology, the training process, usage details, and algorithmic decision-making processes of AI models can be recorded and made public, making the use of AI algorithms fairer. This transparency not only enhances the credibility of AI but also provides regulatory bodies with effective means of oversight.

Additionally, the decentralized nature of Crypto also holds the promise of reducing the energy consumption of the AI industry. By establishing a decentralized computing power market, computational resources can be utilized more efficiently, avoiding the resource wastage seen in traditional centralized computing power markets. This not only helps reduce the operational costs of the AI industry but also aligns with society’s current pursuit of sustainability.

Of course, the integration of AI and Crypto is not achieved overnight. Currently, one of the most widely integrated cases is the “AI as a participant in Crypto mechanisms” mentioned by Vitalik in his recent blog post — the MEV bots on Ethereum. By monitoring transactions and market conditions and utilizing arbitrage strategies to generate profits, AI can now replace the role of traders by learning or creating more efficient strategies.

Imagine if AI could more deeply engage in the Crypto ecosystem, its potential would be immeasurable. Taking Dapp Omen as an example, which is a betting platform for information markets. If AI possesses powerful capabilities and cost-effectiveness that make participation in betting profitable, then a large number of AI prediction results could become crucial reference points, making prediction markets feasible.

Furthermore, AI’s on-chain operations also offer composability. In the future, our daily lives may be filled with various AI services, whether it’s booking hotels, purchasing flights, finding parking spots, or calling for a ride, all of which can be accomplished through intelligent AI agents. These services will be decentralized, transparent, and secure. Such services are particularly suitable for being hosted on TOP, whose fee-free model will attract many C-end users. If on-chain systems can also incorporate AI usage incentives and service combination incentives, it will undoubtedly stimulate more innovation and development combinations.
