In a recent episode of the SlateCast hosted by Liam “Akiba” Wright and Nate Whitehill, Navin Vethanayagam, Chief Brain of, discussed the project’s latest AI initiatives and the importance of decentralizing AI systems.

The Rise of IQGPT

One of’s major achievements is the creation of IQGPT, the first AI system specifically designed for the crypto industry. As Navin explained:

“We used all of the data from IQ Wiki, thousands of wikis created over several years by our community, to create IQGPT, which is the first AI system for crypto.”

IQGPT has gained significant traction, with numerous integrations on platforms like Telegram and Discord. Navin highlighted the recent adoption by major projects like Frax Finance and the Neko meme coin.

Introducing IQCode: AI for Smart Contract Security’s next major AI product is IQCode, an AI system focused on enhancing smart contract security. Navin emphasized the pressing need for such a solution:

“We need to come up with new tools to protect token holders and stakers and people who are involved in protocols. So we kind of came up with this because we realized that, yeah, it could be really good at coding and it could be really good at auditing code.”

IQCode aims to provide a faster, more cost-effective alternative to traditional bug bounties and auditing firms, allowing developers to debug and check their code before deployment quickly.

The Importance of Decentralized AI

As AI systems become more prevalent in various industries, including finance, healthcare, and even governance, Navin stressed the importance of decentralizing these systems to ensure transparency and accountability:

“In the future, we could live in a world maybe in 10 years, 20 years, where you’re actually having like AIs make really important political decisions… And for that, you would really need it to be on chain.”’s long-term goal is to move its AI applications on-chain, ensuring that users can verify the used models and prevent potential scams or misuse.

Expanding into Asian Markets

During the discussion, Navin also touched on’s expansion into Asian markets, highlighting the project’s global team and presence in regions like South Korea and China. He emphasized the importance of having high-level representatives in different countries to build a genuine understanding of local contexts.

Looking Ahead

As the crypto industry continues to evolve, Navin sees AI and meme coins as two of the biggest narratives driving the next cycle. He anticipates further developments within the AI ecosystem, with projects focusing on various aspects of the AI stack, such as hardware, models, and training data.

With its decentralized approach and innovative AI products, is well-positioned to play a pivotal role in shaping the future of AI in the crypto space, fostering transparency, security, and accessibility.
