We are excited to announce that we’ve joined the group of node operators that help secure the Allora Network. With our extensive track record––including securing over $500 million in TVL and our expertise in building successful blockchain products and protocols, such as  Blast, one of the best API infrastructure protocols in the market, and GovScan, our blockchain governance monitoring tool––Bware Labs is uniquely positioned to help the Allora Network establish a strong foundation and enable it to thrive by deploying as a node operator in the beginning days of the network.

“At Bware Labs, we’re committed to being at the forefront of technological innovation, and that’s why we’ve chosen to become node operators for the Allora Network,” says Flavian Manea, CEO of Bware Labs. “By participating in this decentralized ecosystem, we gain access to a diverse pool of AI/ML models and contribute to a future where insights are not only powerful but verifiable and secure.” 

Evolution of the Allora Network and Bware Labs

AI, however, is the most deflationary, expressive form of computing to ever exist and can process large amounts of information much more intelligently. For the past 3 years, Upshot has been building AI-powered crypto infrastructure to power new applications and protocols in gaming, lending, market making, and more. The flagship ML model Upshot Labs created for pricing long-tail assets (such as NFTs) is one of the most effective in the space, pricing more than 400 million assets with more than 95% accuracy.

The team’s earlier work in subjective consensus mechanism design, along with learnings gathered from building AI-powered crypto infrastructure, led them to create the Allora Network, a self-improving decentralized AI network that harnesses both the efficiency of AI and the wisdom of the collective to reach one mission: transform intelligence itself into a digital commodity.

As an Allora node operator, Bware Labs furthers that mission by operating both a validator to secure the Allora chain and a Reputer to rate the performance of the ML models delivered by Allora Workers, performing a critical service that reinforces the self-improvement mechanism of Allora.

“Collaborating with node operators like Bware Labs is crucial to the success of Allora,” says Nick Emmons, CEO of the Upshot team that created Allora. “Flavian and his team’s dedication to secure blockchain infrastructure directly contributes to the growth and security of the network.”

Why We Chose the Allora Network

As a pioneer in Web3 infrastructure, we are always seeking to support the growth of cutting-edge protocols that drive net-new use cases. In our pursuit of this goal, we sought a versatile solution that would allow us to focus on creating innovative infrastructure tools.

After a comprehensive review of available networks, we chose to integrate with Allora due to the network’s unique benefits, which align perfectly with our mission:

  • Collective Intelligence—Models in Allora’s network continuously learn from each other, enhancing its collective intelligence and enabling it to self-improve over time.
  • Tamper-Proof Outputs—Allora utilizes zkML and cryptographic verification to create outputs that are verifiably secure and unalterable, ensuring trust in AI’s decisions.
  • Privacy Protection—Allora protects personal data through local processing, reducing the risk of breaches and preserving user privacy.
  • Universal Access—Allora offers permissionless, composable access to AI, enabling builders everywhere to innovate and create with AI as a foundational element.
  • Balanced Outcomes—Allora leverages diverse data inputs to reduce bias, leading to more balanced and fair AI-driven outcomes.
  • Context-Awareness––network participants forecast each other’s performance under the current conditions, thereby creating a form of context-awareness that enables the network to achieve the best inferences under any circumstances.
