Tether CTO Paolo Ardoino, believed that AI would pick Bitcoin (BTC) over more centralized cryptocurrencies and stablecoins. According to Ardoino, BTC may serve as the preferred native money for sentient machine intelligence. If AI were to embrace a digital currency, Bitcoin’s (BTC) decentralized protocol would be the obvious choice, Ardoino added. He stated that “I think AGI will definitely only choose Bitcoin.” Artificial general intelligence (AGI) is the idea of a machine that can learn how to carry out an intelligent task.
The potential for AI and AGI to completely transform industries has been opened up by the recent introduction of big language learning models like ChatGPT. According to Ardoino, a combination of AI and humans may very well be a part of the future of humanity. Additionally, he pointed to initiatives like Elon Musk’s Neuralink as one of the best examples to investigate the prospect of enhanced cognition.
Why will AI choose Bitcoin over others?
Bitcoin (BTC) is one of the most decentralized projects out there. According to Ardoino,
“A machine will always choose something that is fully decentralized that no one can control. If machines have to pay for electricity to work, they will always use something that humans cannot control.”
Furthermore, speaking on the future, the Tether CTO said that humanity is moving more towards augmented intelligence. This will lead to “AI co-mingling with normal brains,” he stated. The U.S. SEC has also left Bitcoin (BTC) and Ethereum (ETH) out of its recent crackdown on crypto firms, calling them “non-securities.” BTC’s decentralized nature has a part to play in this aspect.
There is no denying the fact that the future is becoming all the more digital. Human currencies, likewise, might eventually follow into the digital realm. In such a scenario, Bitcoin will stand out as one of the few currencies which is beyond the reach of control. In such a scenario, Ardoino’s argument makes sense.
