What is an Artificial Intelligence or AI token?

AI cryptocurrency is designed to support and facilitate AI-driven protocol’s or networks. This combination aims to enhance various aspects of the cryptocurrency, such as security, transaction speed, and predictive analytics. Essentially, it leverages AI to optimize and innovate beyond what traditional cryptocurrencies can offer.

AI can be utilized in several ways within a cryptocurrency:

  1. Security and Fraud Detection: AI algorithms can detect unusual transaction patterns and prevent fraudulent activities.
  2. Market Predictions: AI can analyze vast amounts of data to predict market trends and provide insights to investors.
  3. Efficient Mining and Energy Use: AI can optimize mining processes to make them more energy-efficient.
  4. Smart Contracts: While Ethereum introduced smart contracts, AI can enhance them by enabling more complex and adaptable contract conditions based on real-time data and machine learning models.

What is an AI Token?

An AI token is a type of digital asset issued on a blockchain that has specific functionalities related to AI applications. These tokens can be used within AI-driven platforms or ecosystems to access services, data, or even participate in governance.

AI tokens have a variety of use cases, often tied to the unique capabilities of AI:

  1. Access to AI Services: Tokens can be used to pay for AI services such as data analysis, machine learning models, or computing power on decentralized AI platforms (e.g., Render Network for rendering services or Ocean Protocol for data sharing).
  2. Incentivizing Data Sharing: Platforms like Ocean Protocol use AI tokens to incentivize users to share their data securely. The data providers are rewarded with tokens, which can then be used or traded.
  3. Decentralized AI Networks: Tokens enable users to participate in decentralized AI networks, where they can contribute computational resources or data in exchange for tokens. These tokens can then be used to access AI-generated insights or models.
  4. Governance: Similar to some traditional tokens, AI tokens can grant holders voting rights in the platform’s development and decision-making processes.

Practical Example - Ocean

Let’s take Ocean Protocol as an example: Ocean's native token, $OCEAN, is used to facilitate a decentralized data exchange. Data providers stake tokens to make their data available, and consumers use tokens to access this data.

  • AI algorithms within the protocol ensure data privacy and quality, optimizing the data marketplace.
  • Token holders can participate in governance, influencing the direction and policies of the protocol.

By integrating AI, these cryptocurrencies and tokens not only perform traditional functions but also add layers of intelligent automation, predictive capabilities, and enhanced security. 

Following the publication of this article Ocean Protocol, and SingularityNET will complete a merger forming the new Artificial Superintelligence Alliance (Token: ASI). The merger will combine the three companies' research, brands, technologies, and products to create a decentralized AI infrastructure that uses blockchain to ensure ethical AI development and deployment. 

Note: Once third-party integrations are finalized FET, AGIX and OCEAN will cease to trade independently and merge to the ASI token.

Top 5 AI Tokens supported by Topper 

Here are the top AI tokens by market capitalization according to CoinMarketCap that are available on Topper.

  • Render Token (RNDR) uses blockchain technology to improve the usage of GPUs across the world. The network seeks to connect media creators in need of computing power to perform render jobs to people who have their hardware idle and want to monetize that. 

    The platform’s native token is RNDR, used to reward node operators for sharing their computational resources with the network.The RNDR token is used to pay for animation, motion graphics, and VFX rendering on the network.
  • (FET) is building a decentralized machine learning platform based on a distributed ledger that enables anyone to share or exchange data. The network hosts a number of software agents known as  ‘autonomous agents’ that represent and act on behalf of their owners across a variety of ecosystems, benefiting both suppliers and consumers. is looking to optimize trading for financial services users, reconfigure public transport networks, support smart cities’ ability to adapt to citizen behavior, remove middlemen from the gig economy, and connect energy networks to smart grids by decentralizing access to data. The FET token provides access, a means of payment, security, and the ability to earn rewards in the network through staking.
  • AIOZ is a layer-1 blockchain supporting a CDN betting on decentralization as the way forward for higher-quality, cheaper streaming services. AIOZ was built in the Cosmos ecosystem. Its dCDN uses P2P edge nodes, also called gateway nodes, for storing, streaming and transferring data, as opposed to relying on traditional data centers.

    AIOZ is the network's native token. It’s used for staking and as a means of payment for network services which also include file sharing and data storage.
  • Ocean Protocol, detailed above as an example of an AI token, is available on Topper. OCEAN, the network’s native utility token, is primarily used as a unit of exchange for data tokens and enables the buying and selling of data as well as governance.
  • OriginTrail (TRAC) is an Ethereum-run blockchain protocol for supply chain data. It allows companies throughout the global supply chain to share data securely, end-to-end, via a graph network monitored by AI and oracles. The network is designed to be a neutral interconnection hub for the Web3 era.

    The network's TRAC token pays for data processing and storage.
