HUMAN Protocol Foundation adds Solana integration
The HUMAN Protocol Foundation has today announced plans to integrate with Solana as the Foundation begins expanding upon new applications that can be built on HUMAN Protocol’s open source framework.
Through HUMAN Protocol, hundreds of millions of humans seamlessly interact with on-chain requests, labeling immense amounts of data for machine learning through permissionless marketplaces. As the Foundation and users of the HUMAN Protocol face the challenges of onboarding millions of laborers into decentralized work pools, exploring multi-chain support became an obvious priority.
After thorough evaluations of layer 1 blockchains and layer 2 systems, the Foundation has selected Solana as one of the leading choices to integrate with HUMAN Protocol and is excited to share that the integration is currently underway, with plans to launch new labor pools later this year.
Anatoly Yakovenko, President of the Solana Foundation: “Blockchains possess the ability to coordinate large-scale, human and economic resources. The HUMAN Protocol is doing just that by pioneering decentralized labor markets. After making huge strides in gaining market share in machine vision models, an area that has historically been monopolized by Google’s reCAPTCHA, we’re proud to support HUMAN Protocol developers as they unbundle the rest of the machine learning market and unlock new applications that are uniquely enabled by blockchain.”
HUMAN Protocol provides the underlying technology that supports hCaptcha, the world’s most-used blockchain application. hCaptcha’s trustless labor market spans over 15% of global internet traffic and utilizes HUMAN Protocol technology to publish work requests and escrow task bounties on the blockchain, and outsource them to HUMANs around the globe.
As the Foundation brings HUMAN Protocol cross-chain, it aims to allow developers in each ecosystem to access HUMAN Protocol’s toolstack, which includes the ability to publish work requests, escrow task bounties, and access new applications such as Intel’s CVAT (Computer Vision Annotation Tool) a free, open source, web-based image and video annotation tool used for labeling data for computer vision algorithms. In the future, the Protocol aims to enable HUMANs on multiple blockchains to search, list, and discover new types of data-labeling work, joining or creating human labor pools.
Coinciding with this announcement is the release of the new HMT.ai website, which will become the portal for HUMANs to set and complete tasks.
