While the debut of Worldcoin drew attention to artificial intelligence-powered tokens(AI-tokens), recent trading data from Kaiko indicates that these AI tokens have shown resilience despite the controversy surrounding Worldcoin’s launch.
According to recent Kaiko data, the trading volume of AI-related tokens remained stagnant during the past month. The examination revealed a moderate increase in the trading volume of AI tokens last month, reaching approximately $870 million, up from $570 million at the close of July. Nevertheless, when compared to the volume at the beginning of the year, there was a significant decrease.
In the same vein, Dessislava Ianeva, an analyst from Kaiko, noted that enthusiasm for AI tokens began to diminish in July, primarily due to a change in global risk sentiment. The total open interest for five major AI tokens, namely FET, GRT, RNDR, OCEAN, and ROSE, dropped from $170 million in February to $60 million by August.
