Human Protocol to Use Solana

Human Protocol wants to help educate computers and aims to use decentralized pools on the Solana blockchain.

Singapore-based Human Protocol trained in using humans to do mundane tasks through tools like hCaptcha. The company announced recently that it was launching a new service on the Solana blockchain.

Human Protocol aids machines to learn. It does this by approaching people to perform so-called labeling tasks like identifying raw data, such as videos, images, and text. In turn, it provides meaningful information and background for machine learning to improve tasks like speech and visual recognition.

Now the Singapore-based Foundation announced that it is integrating with Solana, a blockchain designed to provide fast, secure, and scalable decentralized apps and marketplaces. Scalability is important to equipping developers or organizations with additional resources to perform task labeling, and Human Protocol believes that the Solana blockchain’s capacity is perfect for the job.

Solana Labs was co-founded in 2017 by former engineers from Qualcomm, Dropbox, Intel Alan Yu, Anatoly Yakovenko, Eric Williams, Greg Fitzgerald, and Raj Gokal, Stephen Akridge. Scalability and transactions per second (TPS) have been a viral topic in the blockchain industry.

Bitcoin can handle around 5 – 7 TPS and Ethereum 20 – 30 TPS (ETH 1.0) and approximately 100,000 TPS (ETH 2.0), Ripple 1500 TPS, Bitcoin Cash 60 TPS, and Litecoin 56 TPS. Solana claims its blockchain can handle up to 710,000 transactions per second on a 1GB network without being disbursed.

What is Human Protocol?
Human Protocol was founded in 2017 by Eli-Shaoul Khedouri and Alex Newman to support distributed marketplaces and reward users for contributing and aiding machines to get jobs done. This help comes by way of providing reasoning and knowledge to Human Protocol’s applications.

“By launching Human Protocol on Solana, we are allowing devs to launch decentralized work pools on the Solana blockchain using technologies like CVAT, the free, open-source annotation tool, created by Intel,”

Lonnie Rae, Human Protocol’s head of operations.

Up until now, Human Protocol’s most recognized use case is hCaptcha, a verification web application that aims to disrupt Google’s reCAPTCHA with a privacy-focused alternative. hCaptcha integrated with Cloudflare in April 2020 and replaced Google’s reCAPTCHA, which has been used by the Internet services provider. It is now one of the most used CAPTCHA, with over 1179 websites using it.

The Future with Solana
This recent announcement shows the faith Human Protocol is putting in the Solana blockchain. Other projects that use Solana are Civic, Star Atlas, The Media Network, Bonfida, and Arweave.

The COO and Co-founder of Solana, Raj Gokal is compelling on the relationship between Human Protocol and Solana saying:

“Human Protocol is creating a global brain formed through billions of interactions in a decentralized marketplace. This is the rare combination of vision, execution, and ambition Solana was built for.”

The Human Protocol launch on Solana is scheduled later this year.
