Popular decentralized, open-source blockchain smart contract, Tron has unveiled its $100 million AI and Web3 development fund. The protocol announced the development in a statement on its website on Thursday. Through the funding, Tron intends to encourage developers to create application on its blockchain using the emerging AI tools, including OpenAI’s ChatGPT both in the backend and frontend of development.
Notably, the development fund emerged as part of Tron’s moves to integrate AI with its blockchain network. According to Tron Founder, Justin Sun, AI is transforming the tech industry. He further that Tron is at the fore front of this revolution with its AI-oriented integration.
More so, Sun said the platform intends to offer AI oriented decentralized payment framework for ChatGPT and OpenAI.
