DeFi

DeFi has transformed how we access and leverage financial services. Exchanging value and assets through decentralized protocols — rather than traditional institutions — enables the permissionless creation of complex financial products. Until crypto came along, a few influential entities controlled the monetary systems. This concentration of centralized control had, for decades, prohibited universal access to advanced investment tools.

The Allora Network utilizes technologies like zkML and federated learning to chart a new course for DeFi. Decentralized AI plays a pivotal role in crafting advanced investment tools, especially those involving real-time data analysis, AI-powered insights for dynamic valuations, risk assessment, and predictive analytics. With these capabilities, financial products built on Allora are more efficient, transparent, and accessible than centralized frameworks.

1. AI-Powered Reward Strategies

Current DeFi return strategies often struggle with real-time market responsiveness and are limited in their ability to process vast datasets, resulting in less optimized returns. AI, on the other hand, can analyze data with speed and efficiency that no human could replicate, overcoming these limitations.

Based on these analyses, DeFi protocols like RoboNet could implement an AI model that develops dynamic return strategies, involving a combination of buying, holding, and selling at specific intervals or price points. This strategy would then be executed automatically to optimize for maximum return, ensuring anyone has access to institutional-grade investing strategies.

2. AI-Enhanced Prediction Markets

Traditional prediction markets often suffer from low liquidity, especially in niche areas. AI agents can overcome these limitations by efficiently managing market making and trading strategies. AI agents, being more efficient than human traders, can significantly increase trading volumes. This higher activity boosts liquidity, making markets more efficient, all while delivering more accurate projections across niche events.

Prediction markets could build on Allora Network to create AI agents that specialize in various fields, analyzing vast datasets including historical trends, current events, and nuanced market indicators, and then trade in different prediction markets based on those analyses. This leads to more granular predictions that were previously unattainable. These agents could then manage on-chain DeFi vaults, using deposited funds to trade across relevant prediction markets autonomously, thus facilitating dynamic market making and trade execution to bolster liquidity and volume.

For a more in-depth analysis of how AI agents would work in prediction markets, read Upshot CEO Nick Emmons’s post here.

3. AI-Optimized Liquidity Management on Perp DEXs

AI-powered swap aggregation and transaction routing addresses the limitations of current DEX methodologies by introducing real-time adaptability to optimize trading for factors such as fees, slippage, and liquidity. Leveraging AI to analyze vast amounts of data across multiple platforms would help identify the most efficient transaction paths, surpassing traditional static routing methods. An AI agent, capable of evaluating liquidity, transaction fees, slippage rates, and available trading pairs in real time, ensures that trades are executed in the most advantageous manner possible.

For a DEX aggregator, AI-enhanced routing could continuously scan and assess possible swap routes across a myriad of DEXs. The AI could then pinpoint the optimal path that minimizes costs and maximizes returns for the trader. The result would be an automated, smart contract-executed swap, following the AI-recommended route, thereby streamlining the trading process and ensuring traders receive the best possible deal with every transaction.

Here’s how this might work in practice:

  • A trader wants to swap one token for another on a DEX.
  • The AI agent evaluates all possible swap routes across multiple DEXs.
  • It identifies an optimal route that minimizes fees and maximizes return.
  • The swap is executed automatically via smart contracts, following the AI-recommended route.

8. Intent-Based Blockchain Solvers Using AI

Unlike traditional solvers that operate on explicit commands, AI-powered solvers can understand and efficiently execute complex user intents, even when dealing with nuanced requests. Instead of merely executing transactions based on explicit commands, “intents” allow users to delegate transaction construction and execution to new actors called “solvers.” AI models equipped with natural language processing and context-awareness can interpret these intents with a level of nuance far beyond basic instructions.

DeFi platforms could all users to employ AI-driven solvers to uncover intelligent ways to fulfill different intents. For example, an intent such as “I want to buy 10 ETH for no more than $3,500 per ETH” could be addressed by an AI solver that assesses a wide range of market opportunities, potentially taking on minimal risk to maximize profit and value. This would allow DeFi protocols to offer more personalized and efficient financial services, ensuring transactions are executed in alignment with users’ trading goals.

9. Advanced Loan Underwriting

Loan underwriting is largely governed by straightforward logic encoded in smart contracts, which often lacks the depth and flexibility needed for complex risk assessments. AI can develop more advanced, capital-efficient lending systems, offering nuanced evaluation of risk factors. This approach leverages AI to evaluate borrower credibility, assess collateral values for RWAs, and adapt to changing market conditions. This would elevate capital efficiency and align lending terms more closely with the nuanced needs of borrowers.

Lenders could significantly enhance their lending framework by incorporating Allora’s AI risk modeling solution. This integration would allow for a more granular assessment of collateral and borrower reliability, facilitating the customization of loan conditions such as interest rates, loan-to-value ratios, and repayment schedules. Setting terms that accurately reflect the risk and borrower’s circumstances could expand credit access.

10. Decentralized Bond Issuance and Valuation

Current bond issuance and valuation face inefficiencies, limited accessibility, and insufficient real-time data analysis. These issues have long plagued the bond market. AI could meticulously assess bonds based on market conditions, issuer creditworthiness, interest rates, and projected returns.

Municipal governments could fund an infrastructure project through bond issuance using an AI agent that evaluates the government’s financial health, the project’s viability, and prevailing market conditions to accurately determine the bond’s value and subsequently set a competitive interest rate. Investors could then purchase these bonds directly on a DeFi platform, with all terms efficiently managed via smart contracts. Moreover, the AI agent could continuously reevaluate the bond, making the bond issuance process streamlined, transparent, and dynamic.

11. AI-Powered Insurance Vaults

The insurance industry spends too many resources settling claims. Their processes are bogged down by manual administration and slow decision-making. AI could revolutionize this sector by automating these processes and ensuring more accurate and quicker settlements. By employing AI for the automation of policy management in decentralized vaults, the process from claim submission to final settlement becomes not only faster but also more precise.

AI could automate every aspect of the insurance lifecycle — administration, tracking, and updating of policies, alongside assessing and settling claims based on rigorous, predefined criteria. Insurance companies already use predictive models to estimate hurricane damage, for example. But imagine an AI-powered insurance product that, based on sophisticated risk models, could pay out a percentage of a hurricane claim on day 0, even before the storm clears. The result would be a much more efficient process, for both the insurance company and the insured.

DAOs

DAOs theoretically allow for a more agile and responsive governance model, where decisions reflect the collective will rather than the interests of a few. Yet, in practice, DAOs face significant challenges, including inefficiencies in processing vast amounts of information for decision-making, and difficulties in achieving true consensus. This can lead to governance paralysis and reduced operational effectiveness. The lack of advanced analytical tools to sift through proposals and predict their outcomes has often left DAOs struggling to fulfill their governance potential.

12. DAO Treasury Management

DAOs struggle to accurately predict the outcomes of their treasury decisions. By leveraging AI, DAOs can analyze data to predict cash flow, investment returns, and financial risks, facilitating more strategic fund allocation and management decisions.

DAOs could utilize AI-powered analytical models to enhance its treasury management. These models would enable the platform to make data-driven decisions regarding investments, budgeting, and liquidity management. This approach not only aligns with the transparency and trust that DAOs strive for, but also ensures the treasury’s resources are managed more efficiently, safeguarding the organization’s financial health.

13. AI Agents as Governance Participants

AI agents could solve the widespread issue of voter apathy in DAOs. These agents would introduce a means for precise, data-driven participation, thereby combating voter apathy and the frequent misalignment between DAO delegates and their constituent interests. The absence of such technology has previously left DAOs and political systems alike struggling to maintain active and representative governance structures.

AI agents could participate in governance decisions, automatically voting on proposals or aiding in the formulation of policies. These AI representatives would be trained on the individual political preferences and values of their constituents, enabling them to automatically vote in alignment with these interests. These agents could potentially represent the specific preferences of their constituents more accurately than human representatives. This automated involvement would ensure all decisions are consistently aligned with the community’s interests. Ultimately, this would foster a governance environment that is more engaged and in tune with the collective will.

Previously, the challenge has been accurately verifying the authenticity of physical movement without invasive tracking or easily spoofed systems.

However, move-to-earn platforms can use zkML technology like Allora’s zkPredictor to enable a secure, privacy-preserving validation process. zkML, or zero-knowledge machine learning, allows the system to verify physical activities without exposing any individual user data. This ensures that rewards are distributed fairly, based on verified activities, and combats fraudulent claims of physical activity.

19. AI-Powered Anti-Cheat

As games have become more financialized, cheating has become more lucrative than ever. Players even use bots to grind for items and sell them online. Entire businesses have emerged to farm items and sell them to players, while other cheats like aimbots and teleportation hacks can completely ruin the gaming experience. There are anti-cheat systems in use today- — they work by running a program on the player’s computer to check for suspicious activity. But it’s an endless game of cat and mouse, with hackers finding ever-effective means of circumventing detection, such as running cheats on a separate laptop connected to their gaming PC.

With players in web3 games owning their in-game items as NFTs, the incentive to cheat will only grow. AI could be an effective means of catching and preventing these cheats. By analyzing player behavior and transactions, AI systems could identify irregularities that suggest cheating. For example, AI could flag players who fall outside the expected bell curve for matches won, time played, in-game currency earned, and other behaviors. It could also detect bots that grind low-level content for long periods of time without ever going offline. With AI monitoring for these red flags, game publishers could take swift action against cheaters, ensuring a fairer and more enjoyable gaming experience for all players.

Renewable Energy

Using renewable energy sources symbolizes a critical step towards sustainability, aiming to reduce carbon emissions and a global reliance on fossil fuels.

27. Synthetic Identity Detection

Synthetic identity fraud involves creating identities using a mix of real and fake information, an increasingly difficult form of fraud to detect. The primary hurdle has been the lack of advanced, scalable tools capable of analyzing the depth of data needed to identify these fabricated identities accurately.

A financial institution could utilize AI to cross-reference new account applications against a comprehensive database of known patterns associated with synthetic identities. Analyzing discrepancies in application details, transaction behaviors, and credit usage patterns that deviate from the norm would allow the institution to flag potential synthetic identities for further review. This reduces the risk of financial loss due to fraud and streamlines the account verification process.

28. AI-Powered Crypto Portfolio Tracker

Current crypto portfolio trackers only provide a superficial view of holdings without in-depth risk analysis or strategic advice. An AI model could assess a specific portfolio’s risk based on its performance against market benchmarks, and even provide strategic insight for portfolio optimization or even copy-trading.

For example, by analyzing a portfolio’s historical performance data, current market trends, and individual asset volatility, AI can suggest strategies for rebalancing, diversification, or exploring new investment opportunities tailored to the user’s risk tolerance and goals. Beyond mere tracking, this AI model could allow users to emulate the strategies of successful portfolios, thereby democratizing access to expert investment tactics.

29. AI-Driven Financial Behavioral Analysis

Traditional financial analysis often struggles to capture the full scope of an individual’s financial behavior, missing out on opportunities for personalized service. AI could analyze each customer’s financial transactions, behaviors, and preferences, such as how they spend, invest, save, and their approach to risk. This detailed analysis has been largely impractical in the past due to the complexity of data and the need for real-time adaptability.

Implementing AI models allows financial institutions and DeFi platforms to tailor their services precisely. For instance, after evaluating a user’s spending habits and investment activities, a platform could recommend customized investment products, suggest budgeting strategies, or offer loan options with personalized interest rates. This level of customization could potentially increase user engagement and loyalty to the platform.

30. Predictive Healthcare

AI’s role in healthcare, particularly in disease prediction and diagnosis, marks a pivotal shift towards early and precise medical interventions. The crux of this advancement lies in AI models’ capacity to digest and interpret extensive datasets — ranging from electronic medical records and genetic sequences to detailed imaging studies. This depth of analysis facilitates the identification of disease markers well before conventional methods might catch them, offering a significant edge in the early detection of conditions like cancer.

For example, AI could be used to analyze x-ray images for the early detection of cancer. Traditional review processes might miss early or subtle signs of cancer, especially in dense tissue. An AI model, trained on billions of x-rays, can detect minute irregularities indicating early-stage cancer, often before they become clinically apparent. This leads to earlier intervention, potentially improving patient outcomes by starting treatment sooner. Through such applications, AI optimizes the diagnostic process.

31. AI-Powered Supply Chain Optimization

Optimizing supply chain shipping routes, package placement, and shipping frequency is a complex task. Current supply chain management systems, although advanced, often struggle to keep up with ever-increasing demands.

AI has the potential to improve supply chain optimization by analyzing vast amounts of data such as fuel costs, delivery deadlines, parcel dimensions, and more to determine the most efficient way to pack and transport goods. Furthermore, AI can be applied to assembly lines, predicting which parts need to be replaced and subsequently automatically ordering and shipping them to prevent downtime.
