After steering OpenAI from a valuation of $0 to a staggering $80 billion over five years, the AI company faces a turning point with Altman’s departure and Mira Muratti, former chief technology officer (CTO), taking over as interim CEO.Thank you for reading this post, don't forget to subscribe!
Altman has not divulged his next steps; however, he shared on social media that he will “have more to say later.” Seizing this opportunity, Charles Hoskinson, the creator of Cardano, has extended a bold proposition to the ex-CEO on the X social media platform to collaborate in establishing a decentralized language learning model in partnership with the Cardano blockchain.
@sama Since you have some free time now. If you are interested in doing a decentralized LLM, contact me. Would be a fun Cardano partnerchain

Hoskinson’s Aspiration for a Decentralized Language Learning Model
Charles Hoskinson envisions AI embracing decentralization and openness. With his background as the founder of Cardano and former co-founder of Ethereum, he is well-versed in building decentralized networks. Hoskinson’s vision for a decentralized language learning model is ambitious yet promising.
On the other hand, if anyone understands language learning models, it’s unequivocally Sam Altman. The former CEO is renowned as one of the creators of the language model powering ChatGPIT, which has gained widespread adoption since its launch in November 2022.

If Altman accepts Hoskinson’s offer, it could signify a pivotal moment in how AI models such as ChatGPT are developed and how they cater to users. A decentralized LLM would essentially be accessible to everyone and impervious to censorship, manipulation, and dominance by governments and large corporations, addressing concerns surrounding existing LLMs.
Post Sam Altman’s Dismissal as CEO
Altman’s removal as CEO has stirred the AI and crypto industries. Greg Brockman, president of OpenAI and one of the co-founders, also revealed his departure from the company.
As anticipated, WorldCoin reacted negatively to this news. WorldCoin (WLD) plummeted by 12.75% following the announcement of the CEO’s dismissal, based on CoinMarketCap data. Nevertheless, the crypto has rebounded and is now exchanging at $2.38.
According to OpenAI’s announcement, the board of directors concluded that Altman’s lack of transparency in communications had eroded their confidence in his ability to continue as CEO. However, rumors abound that OpenAI investors are exploring reinstating Altman as CEO.
At the time of writing, Cardano ADA is trading at $0.375. According to a crypto analyst, if ADA manages to break out of the current falling wedge pattern, it could ascend to the $0.78 mark.
