Users can check account balances using a network explorer or programmatically access them using the plugin’s use of the mirror node Rest API.
Blockchain and artificial intelligence (AI) have converged in an exciting development involving ChatGPT and Hedera, the native cryptocurrency of the Hedera network. This integration takes advantage of the decentralized nature of blockchain networks to establish secure interactions between ChatGPT and Hedera, enabling access to key Hedera services such as the Hedera Consensus Service, Hedera Token Service, and Smart Contract Service.
Developer Ed Marquez took to Twitter to share step-by-step instructions on creating a plugin that specifically focuses on retrieving token balances of Hedera accounts. Users have the option to view account balances through a network explorer or programmatically retrieve them using the mirror node Rest API, which the plugin will seamlessly incorporate. Notably, token balances are denoted in tinybars (tℏ), with one ℏ equivalent to 100,000,000 tℏ.
The network’s ledger contains securely stored Hedera accounts, including the native coin HBAR as well as fungible and nonfungible tokens produced on Hedera. This all-encompassing strategy guarantees the thorough management and monitoring of various tokens connected to Hedera accounts.
Users gain a lot from ChatGPT’s connection with the Hedera network through the plugin, especially in terms of more efficient asset monitoring and administration. ChatGPT transforms into an effective tool for users looking for convenient insights into their holdings and overall portfolio performance by retrieving HBAR and token balances straight from Hedera accounts.
Users can easily install the plugin within the ChatGPT user interface after it has been constructed and the mirror node Rest API is functioning. Users may communicate with ChatGPT and easily check the HBAR and token balances linked to their Hedera accounts thanks to this straightforward installation method, which eliminates the need for extra external tools or interfaces.
The plugin connects to the Hedera mirror node Rest API in order to make it easier to retrieve important data. As a trustworthy data source and a gateway to the Hedera network, the API enables the plugin to obtain the most recent HBAR and token balance data, providing accurate and timely responses.
