powering the

bot economy

on blockchain

What is SEED?

SEED is a decentralized marketplace for developers and deployers of conversational user interfaces (CUIs), where they will find the best resources, intellectual property, and network for deploying front-ends to AI technologies. Blockchain and the SEED community make it all possible.

SEED democratizes AI by offering an open and independent alternative to the monopolies of a few large corporations that currently control CUI and AI technologies. SEED's licensed, open-source platform supports collaboration and creative compensation that will exceed the proprietary deployments from industry giants.

The SEED token and network are designed to create a thriving economy of CUIs while enabling user control of their personal data. The SEED Token is uniquely designed to support authentication, smart contracts, payments, and ratings in order to reward quality and positive actors in the SEED economy and guard against negative ones.

Why we are investing in Botanic & SEED Token

Today, AI is all around us, with bots generating more Internet traffic than people.
