0G's Newton Testnet Pioneers the Future of AI-Blockchain Fusion

0G Labs launches with whopping $35M pre-seed to build a modular AI blockchain

Why OPL is bullish on the Future of 0G

Bullish on the Modular blockchain(vs. Monolithic)

It's highly likely you're familiar with names like Eigenlayer, Celestia, and Avail, among others. You might wonder why there's such a fervent interest from both builders and investors in the concept of modular blockchains, particularly the Data Availability (DA) layers. The reason is straightforward: we are still a considerable distance from achieving mass adoption, with scalability being a significant hurdle. Upon closer examination, it becomes evident that the limitations in scalability largely stem from the monolithic structure of traditional blockchains. In response, the development of modular blockchains is being pursued as a promising strategy to address these scalability challenges.

Advantages of Modular Blockchain

  • Scalability: Unlike monolithic blockchains that process all transactions on a single layer, modular blockchains enhance scalability by allowing specific components to be updated or modified as necessary.
  • Flexibility: Modular blockchains offer developers unparalleled control, enabling the creation of bespoke applications with tailored mechanisms and rules, a stark contrast to the fixed structures of monolithic blockchains.
  • Shared Security: By leveraging existing consensus mechanisms and validators from other networks within the same ecosystem, modular blockchains circumvent the need for developing these systems from scratch, thereby fostering secure interchain connectivity, exemplified by modular Layer-2 networks.

Bullish on the intersection of AI and Web3

Q: Why must AI be Decentralized?

A: The most powerful technology in the world cannot be controlled by just a few organizations.

  • Decentralized Database

A decentralized database ensures individual control over data, combatting the monopolistic hold big companies often have over user information. It grants users complete autonomy over their data, establishing some of the most reliable systems for data sharing and storage. This shift not only empowers users but also introduces a new paradigm of data governance and accessibility.

  • Decentralized AI

Decentralized AI transforms traditionally opaque AI systems into transparent networks by using blockchain technology. This shift enables the coordination of machine intelligence towards common goals within open and trustless environments, allowing applications to deploy AI without relying on a concentrated group of powerful organizations. Currently, much of AI technology is centralized, controlled by a few influential entities, limiting the technology's broader democratizing potential and concentrating societal, financial, and creative influence. By distributing AI's development and governance across diverse entities, it aligns more closely with varied human needs, fostering a spectrum of applications rather than a monoculture dominated by few models. Furthermore, decentralized AI acts as a safeguard against the risks of mass surveillance and manipulation by central authorities, thereby preserving individual freedoms against the potential abuses of advanced technology.

Bullish on the series Entrepreneurs and Degens

I've known Michael and Ada for nearly a decade. I've watched them navigate the web2 space, tackle numerous challenges, and solve many real-world problems. I fondly remember spending hours on calls with Michael discussing web3 opportunities back in 2017. After years of hard work, OnePiece Labs and Michael's 0G have joined forces once again! I'm thrilled to be collaborating with old pals as we build the next chapter of the first modular AI chain!

Although I haven't had the chance to meet all the founding team members in person, our numerous, lengthy cross-time-zone phone calls have assured me that this group is comprised of experienced serial entrepreneurs. They have previously built unicorn companies like Conflux and Garten, successfully raising and generating revenues in the hundreds of millions!

THE PLAN - Partnership between OPL and 0G

OnePiece Labs and 0G are joining forces to cultivate a global Web3 and AI ecosystem. Announced at Token2049 in Dubai, OnePiece will orchestrate a series of events for builders and developers, including:

We are thrilled to announce our partnership with 0G, founded on shared community values and a commitment to growth, focused on empowering AI-related Web3 projects to drive innovation and advance the development of decentralized applications.
