Welcome to this week’s Arweave Weekly Digest.

In this issue we’ll discuss some upcoming Arweave events (some sooner rather than later), new ao Computer releases, and community infrastructure being built around ar.io network.

Let’s get into it!

Weekly Digest

ao 🤝 ai with AOVM

AOVM has recently been announced in the ao and Arweave scene, and seems to be the protocol for integrating LLMs such as Llama-3 into ao.

This is interesting as they are calling themselves a protocol - so this may sit on top of ao (and therefore Arweave) with its own consensus layer, and is taking inspiration from other L2 blockchains such as rollups.

Having a decentralized layer for AI is important, as it can help with issues such as content attribution and verifying the responses received by an LLM.

Not to mention it open up more opportunities for DeFi and AI, like Autonomous Finance’s DCA agents.

🛠️ Arweave Berlin and Arweave Day

Sam Williams, the founder and CEO of Arweave, has also teased that there will be a big announcement on the 6th to continue growing the Permaweb.

🇮🇳 Bring On Arweave India Demo Day

🐘 ArSwap, now with memecoins

ArSwap are building out DeFi on ao Computer. Recently they announced a new trading pair with $TRUNK, the first memecoin on ao.

It may seem like small steps, but we’re slowly seeing an entire DeFi ecosystem come to life on ao, which is awesome as it’s all backed up by Arweave and permanent storage.

ArSwap also supports wrapped $AR from aox_xyz and a number of other test tokens you can trade for $AOCRED.

They’ve also released some improvements to the ArSwap UX to make trading more efficient.
