What are AI crypto tokens, why are they popular, and will they be a sustainable investment after the ChatGPT hype?
There are two era-defining technologies of the 2020s — blockchain and AI.
While both have their roots in the 20th century, their exponential growth has just begun recently, with the boom of crypto and AI-powered tools.
Naturally, great minds have thought of ways to complement one another — leveraging the strengths of both techs. But have they succeeded?
Let’s find out in this article and look beyond the hype of AI crypto tokens.

The broad definition for AI tokens is “cryptocurrencies that utilize AI in some way to improve security, user experience, scalability.“ — YF
But that isn’t quite the case if we look at any list of the top 100 AI tokens.
Therefore, here is a better definition of AI tokens with some general stats:
AI tokens are one of the hottest topics of 2023.
People are still actively discussing and searching for the next big AI project. And there is a good reason for that. While most crypto narratives come and leave after a few months, AI is here to stay for generations, making a good case that the trend will only increase over time.
But how exactly did AI tokens become a crypto narrative?
Before answering this question, here is a little story.
In 2022, among the many informational pieces I released, there was one particular publication on the “7 Ways To Invest In Artificial Intelligence”.
While the article didn’t trend like other Medium posts, it contained some entirely accurate analysis points. And by the way, the article was published just 13 days before the announcement of ChatGPT.
Below are some chart comparisons from the article.
AI ETFs are up
Exactly 3 months after the publication of the article, AI ETFs are up, with some of them, like ARK, up by +10.30% in the last month.
AI chips & hardware companies are up
The top two AI chips and hardware providers, NVIDIA and AMD, skyrocketed by over 100% on their 5-year performance.
Microsoft buys shares in OpenAI
While the article's fourth method (left picture) was unavailable to the public, Microsoft indeed took advantage of the opportunity (right picture).
Before moving forward, here is an important disclaimer — the above piece was entirely informational, and while the list thrived in the last 3 months, it is not a guaranteed for the future. Predicting the AI boom, in a sense came to two things — the growing capabilities of the tech and the undervaluation of the AI-related investments.
Here is the cherry on top.
The sixth analyzed investment at the time was “tokens in AI blockchain companies.” Since then, the boom of these projects is evident and is probably the reason why you opened this article.
Here are some fundamentals and tech analyses on three crypto tokens.
SingularityNET is a blockchain-powered platform that, through its globally accessible AI marketplace, enables anyone to easily “create, share, and monetize” AI services. Users can browse, test, and purchase a wide range of AI services via the SingularityNET marketplace using the platform’s native utility token, $AGIX.
Technical analysis of the $AGIX AI token
SingularityNET’s $AGIX token is one of the strongest performers since the beginning of the recent AI hype, with an increase of +935.43% since Nov 30, 2022 (ChatGPT’s release). The token also trades at $0.4325 —three times more than its peak during the last year.
One Click Crypto is a Web3 software development company specializing in DeFi products. By using AI/ML models, the team has already produced 8+ crypto trading bots that use the $OBT token as part of their utility.
Technical analysis of the $OBT token
One Click Crypto’s $OBT token is up by +48.95% since the release of ChatGPT and is currently trading at $0.0277 — still below 50% of its ATH from one year ago at $0.60, showing room for growth.
Numerai is an Ethereum-based platform that allows developers and data scientists to experiment and build more reliable machine-learning models.
The platform’s primary goal is to decentralize the data science field and enable developers to compete in creating effective ML prediction models. The $NMR token is used in a novel auction mechanism to make overfitting economically irrational in the Numerai ecosystem.
Technical analysis of the $NMR AI token
Numerai’s $NMR token is up by +82.66% since ChatGPT’s release and is currently trading at $20.55 — about 33% below its 12-month peak from April last year at $33.4.
The short analysis of these 3 AI crypto projects shows that some native tokens have jumped by nearly +1000% since the beginning of the ChatGPT hype and are well beyond their previous highs, while other AI tokens are still on their hike to fill their previous maximums.
Additionally, the macro state of the AI market shows general undervaluation, as seen from the charts in the previous section. The AI sector remains a lucrative investment opportunity even as of February 2023, but profits can never be guaranteed.
Now, the question is…
Re: Never too early to research.
Everything is still undervalued, but that doesn’t necessarily mean that FOMO-ing will guarantee returns.
The underlying principle is that AI will likely be part of our lives in upcoming decades → therefore, AI investments would thrive and still hold ground, but there are always unpredictable events.
For that reason, always do your own research and consult a financial expert before making any decision.
AI and crypto are here to stay.
Those words aren’t coming from another DeFi degen, but the president of the World Economic Forum — Klaus Schwab, during a speech on Feb 15 at the World Economic Summit (link to the official video).
Conspiracy theories aside, the WEF leader indeed got one thing right: “Who masters those (new) technologies — in some way — will be the master of the world.” Creepy, indeed.
With all the world leaders and billionaires like Elon Musk, Bill Gates, and Jeff Bezos rushing to shape how humans and AI will live together, it’s vital for the everyday person to stay ahead of the curve with all available resources.
