Solana Labs announced the availability of its ChatGPT plugin on Tuesday. According to the company, this solution, which is offered as a Github download, is the first layer 1 download to merge blockchain with artificial intelligence (AI).

Malware is being used by bad actors to exploit ChatGPT vulnerabilities, he warned. It has been blocked since March, according to the business.
