Following the race, Solana also joined Binance by launching it’s own AI.

When plugins are made more publicly available by OpenAI, the plugin will enable the AI chatbot to check wallet balances, send tokens, and buy NFTs.

Users of Solana will soon be able to communicate with the network using an open-source plugin activated on ChatGPT, an AI chatbot from OpenAI.

According to a tweet sent out on April 25 by Solana Labs, the company responsible for developing the Solana blockchain, the plugin will enable ChatGPT to check wallet balances, send Solana-native tokens, and buy nonfungible tokens once OpenAI makes plugins available.

Additionally, Solana Labs encourages developers to experiment with retrieving on-chain data using the open-source code.

The snapshot provided by SolanaLabs demonstrates that ChatGPT can retrieve a list of NFTs held by a specific Solana address. Each NFT in the list has a link to its associated metadata, which was most likely obtained using Solana Labs’ block explorer.

If the plugin would be made available to everyone when OpenAI made the plugin feature available, Solana Labs did not specify.

In order to respond to user commands, the new ChatGPT plugins interface with third-party websites and retrieve data from internet databases. All users are presently receiving the feature.

However, not everybody is happy with the change.

One Twitter user urged Solana to first concentrate on creating a “working block explorer,” while another questioned the ecosystem’s potential benefits.

The fact that SolanaLabs also said on April 25 that it would contribute $1 million in funding to initiatives that create AI tools on Solana suggests that the company is now putting more of an emphasis on AI.

Solana ChatGPT users can now delete chat history

The same day, OpenAI said a new privacy feature would allow ChatGPT users to “turn off” their chat history.

In a statement on April 25, the team announced the launch of the new functionality, which was introduced to provide consumers more control over their data.

“Conversations that are started when chat history is disabled won’t be used to train and improve our models, and won’t appear in the history sidebar.”

The function is available in ChatGPT’s settings, which can be modified whenever desired, according to OpenAI.

According to OpenAI, deleted chats will be kept for 30 days so that they can be reviewed to check for harmful content. Conversations will be permanently removed once that has been done.

Additionally, the AI company launched a new “export” option for customers to retrieve their data and better understand the data that ChatGPT maintains.

The new privacy feature is timely given that Italy just became the first European nation to forbid ChatGPT unless it conforms with the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), the EU’s user privacy legislation.
