Polygon Becomes Latest To Enter AI Field With "Copilot" Chatbot
Polygon's Copilot AI chatbot makes learning about the platform easy for users of all levels, and can even mint NFTs.
AI is set to transform almost every area of work and society in the coming years. The crypto world—already comfortable with life at the bleeding edge of innovation—has proven enthusiastic when comes to adopting this technology as it comes of age. Several projects, including Fetch.AI and SingularityNET, have sought to create blockchain platforms that directly leverage AI. Others have used AI to improve access and education, with Layer-2 solution Polygon being the latest entrant to the space.
Yesterday, Polygon announced the launch of Copilot, an AI assistant designed to revolutionize the way users navigate the complex world of cryptocurrencies. Trained on the project's extensive protocol documentation, Polygon Copilot was created to provide personalized explanations and insights tailored to users with varying levels of knowledge.
Polygon Copilot build's on OpenAI's cutting-edge GPT-4 technology, arguably most popular AI product in existence. The app itself is a creation of AI development company Layer-E.
Enhanced Learning With Personas
One of the standout features of Polygon Copilot is its ability to assume different levels of expertise and familiarity, or "personas", enabling it to communicate information effectively to both beginner and advanced users by adapting its language and approach.
For those seeking a more unconventional and lighthearted experience, Copilot even offers a "Degen" mode that injects insights and analytics with memes: An ever-popular element of the crypto space.
From Information To Action
Polygon Copilot goes beyond just educating users by enabling them to take certain actions from directly within the app's chat interface. Users can instruct Copilot to mint zkEVM and proof-of-stake-based NFTs, allowing them to put their newfound knowledge to immediate use.
However, the Polygon team has implemented limits on the number of requests users can submit to the bot in order to prevent spam. Community members can obtain additional credits through various referrals and partner offers, which allow them to unlock more features and interactions. Moreover, users have the option to enter their own OpenAI API, granting them unlimited credits and uninterrupted usage.
The Expanding Landscape Of AI Crypto Assistants
Polygon's move into AI follows a trend seen across the crypto space. Avalanche recently introduced their own chatbot, AvaGPT, on June 20. Other prominent platforms, including Binance with its Sensei chatbot, Solana with its ChatGPT plugin, Crypto.com's Amy chatbot, and ByBit's ToolsGPT, have also leveraged AI to enhance user experiences.
As the crypto industry continues to evolve, AI assistants like Copilot will undoubtedly play an instrumental role in educating and engaging users in this rapidly expanding digital frontier—as they will in all walks of life—helping to bring new users on board and enabling them to access functionality that was previously beyond their reach.
