Solana unveils ChatGPT plugin that retrieves on-chain data
The plugin can retrieve account data, information about NFTs, and more.
Solana Labs has revealed a ChatGPT plugin that will allow chatbot users to interact with the Solana blockchain, as seen in a tweet on April 25.
Solana launches ChatGPT plugin
Solana Labs said that users will be able to use the plugin to check wallet balances, transfer tokens, and purchase NFTs from within ChatGPT.
In one screenshot, a user asks for a list of NFTs owned by a particular Solana address. In a second sample image, a user asks for help sending a Solana transaction to another address, and in a third, a user asks for help purchasing an NFT. Each prompt returns the relevant instructions or information in natural language.
Technical details on GitHub also suggest that the plugin can retrieve data about account balances, assets held, transactions, signatures, NFT collections, and more.
Solana did not state when a plugin will be launched for general use but said that developers can create their own plugins using the project’s source code.
The project’s GitHub page also suggests that the tool can currently be installed as an unverified plugin by using the address https://solana-gpt-plugin.onrender.com.
