No doubt, AI tokens are here to stay. Their relevance in today’s digital space is not unconnected to the growing popularity and usage of AI blockchain protocols. Recall that these protocols are specifically designed for users to build, share and monetize AI services. So, each of them has a native token which powers and coordinates all their economic activities. With these tokens, users are able to access the platforms to enjoy artificial intelligence services. Remarkably, these tokens share a lot of features with other classes of cryptocurrencies. They are decentralized and as well tradable. To know more on the features of AI tokens, it is recommended that you read this article.

As AI tools are gaining relevance across different sectors, projects relating to the innovation in the crypto space are enjoying similar attention. Due to that, AI Tokens are recording notable price surges. In 2024, investors should closely watch AI coins relating to projects like SingularityNET,, The Graph, Render, NumerAI, Alethea AI, Ocean Protocol, Oasis network, Phoenix, and iExec.

It is worthy of note that following the launch of ChatGPT, an AI-based project in November, the entire crypto industry was agog. Developed by a San Francisco–based OpenAI, ChatGPT is enveloped with numerous features, including language translation, text generation, language modeling and many more. However, barely a month after its launch, the innovation had already secured more than a million users. In January, OpenAI collaborated with Microsoft to support its project research. According to reports, the ChatGPT developer received $10 million in funding from Microsoft to finance its project. 

Fortunately, this development started the most significant rise in the popularity of AI cryptocurrencies. As of today, some of these tokens like The Graph, SingularityNet and others have gained remarkable prominence in the global crypto market, outperforming others to rank amidst the top 100 cryptocurrencies.

Nevertheless, what every potential investor must bear in mind is that these AI tokens are not immune to the extreme volatility of the broader crypto market. This is evident in the manner in which some of these tokens responded to the prevailing BTC price rally. Recall that the largest crypto by market cap began to enjoy a positive price movement on March 10 following reports of the collapse of major banking institutions in the US. Occasioned by this development, many investors moved their investments into crypto. To know more on how this price movement impacted top AI tokens, it is recommended that you read this article.
