The Guru Network is a forward-thinking decentralized project operating at the intersection of blockchain and AI technology. Many of its services are tailored for businesses and projects that require multi-step process automation. This guide covers everything you need to know about Guru Network and its native GURU token in 2024.

What is Guru Network?

The Guru Network is an innovative ecosystem of products and services. The network is developing an AI compute multi-chain layer for blockchain-based projects and apps looking to build or enhance AI functionality.

The expansive project was initially launched as a decentralized exchange (DEXGuru Trading Terminal) and has since evolved into an all-in-one platform (Guru Network), merging real-world business processes with artificial intelligence (AI) and blockchain technology. In 2024, the platform is a key driver in simplifying AI-focused application development and deployment.

Guru Network provides a framework for blockchain business process automation (BBPA), which facilitates app development with minimal coding requirements. This abstracts the complexity away from its users, who, in turn, can focus on creating value for their own customers.

The multi-chain AI compute layer will allow builders to natively embed orchestrated AI agents into their applications on multiple blockchains.

Why it matters: Assessing limitations in real-world business processes with AI

The Guru Network contends with a number of limitations in current AI automation offerings for business. Modern-day AI models can be used for pattern recognition, natural language processing (NLP), data analysis, and many other menial tasks. However, there are a few real-world instances that expose the chinks in the armor of AI, thereby limiting its potential in business processes.

For example, modern AI models struggle with automating processes that involve several stages. This makes it impractical to rely exclusively on such models in situations where objectives are complex.

It’s very important to have a precise problem so that you can solve a precise problem. When you’re not clear, then it’s trying to solve a problem that you don’t even know what the problem is.

Furthermore, when AI is used in large-scale operations or processes that involve multiple participants, it fails to scale. This drawback can pose significant bottlenecks in fast-paced environments.

Lastly, AI systems lack confidence when interacting with real-world events and actions. This limits their potential to bridge the gap between the physical and digital realms effectively.

Guru Network aims to solve some of these issues. By seamlessly merging blockchain and AI, Guru Network super-charges efficiency and ensures that applications are crucially context-aware, optimizing performance within a decentralized framework.

Guru Network features

The Guru Network offers a suite of features that enhance the functionality and efficiency of decentralized applications (DApps). These features ensure secure, scalable, and efficient operations across various sectors.

AI-driven user flow orchestration

The Flow Orchestrator acts as the central hub and coordinates activities across the network. It defines and dispatches business processes to the BBPA Engines and sources data from the Guru Data Warehouse, Block Explorer, and trading terminal (DexGuru).

Essentially, the Guru Flow Orchestrator links AI models, on-chain processes, and off-chain data, ensuring a seamless flow of operations. This enhances efficiency and broadens the scope of DApps.

This feature provides users with a minimal code development environment and a user-friendly interface that streamlines project creation and management.

Cross-chain interoperability

Chainlink Cross-Chain Interoperability Protocol (CCIP) is a solution for transferring tokens and sending arbitrary message data to smart contracts on other blockchains. The integration of CCIP into Guru Network’s services ensures secure and efficient off-chain computations and data feeds.

This architecture allows for improvements in scalability in sectors like finance, supply chain, and automated customer interactions. Furthermore, CCIP is functional on multiple EVM-compatible blockchains, which allows the Guru Network to expand its services to even more networks.

Natively embedded AI agents into routines

User workflow with individual agents:

Individual Agents on the Guru Network are similar to AWS Lambda functions. AWS Lambda functions are computing services that run code for applications in response to events or requests without the need to manage servers.

Individual Agents, on the other hand, subscribe to tasks, execute various operations, and interact within the Guru Network’s economic framework. The tasks that they execute can vary widely, which may include:

  • Executing AI model requests
  • Performing non-custodial transactions
  • Calculating buy and sell signals based on trading strategies and indicators

Block Explorer

The Guru Network’s Block Explorer is essentially an Etherscan alternative for appchains. It offers some of the same features you see across standard block explorers, such as portfolio view, token balances, smart contract verification, and more.

Some of the other advanced features it includes are tracing, an ABI Execution interface, TradingView charts, APIs for developers, and integration into EVM-compatible blockchains. These include:

Data warehouse

The Data Warehouse is an on-chain data access solution that supports data-intensive applications such as analytics, AI, and machine learning (ML). It provides advanced tools for data ingestion, visualization, and real-time streaming.

With this tool, you can integrate your services with the Block Explorer, allowing for advanced data querying; utilize an AI-powered visual SQL editor; create dashboards to visualize complex data; integrate with data warehouses; use community-driven API endpoints; and more.

GURU Framework

The GURU Framework, a software development kit (SDK), is designed to streamline the development process for developing, deploying, and managing DApps. It gives users a set of tools and libraries that allow them to integrate AI into DApp development.

Some of its specific features are integration with the Flow Orchestrator, access to the BBPA engines, synchronization of smart contracts across multiple blockchain networks, an API that bridges web2 and web3, the creation and management of individual agents, and the utilization of the Shared Event Bus.

Community and engagement

Several necessary participants are involved in the Guru Network, each with a unique task that creates a cohesive system for long-term sustainability. Here’s a snapshot of the setup:

GurusIncludes core contributors: AI processors, Compute Node Runners, and Individual Workers. 
Individual AgentsFlexible, event-driven computational units. They respond to specific tasks issued by BBPA Engines. As integral economic units within the Guru Network, individual agents receive fees for successfully completing tasks.
Ecosystem ProjectsThese are retail and business projects that combine multiple BBPA orchestrations and data scenarios to solve specific tasks or business functions. They can also act as Gurus and have the opportunity to publish their AI Processors, GURU AI Assistants, and Individual Workers in an IAAS (infrastructure-as-a-service) Catalog.
IntegratorsIntegrators are a middle layer that provides business-to-business adoption of the Guru AI Flow Orchestrator and Framework.
Retail UsersRetail users use their wallets as assistants on the network. They can also take advantage of the “Compute by Earn” feature, which lets them select which Individual Agents to launch when their device or wallet is idle.

Users’ engagement in these roles is crucial, as it creates a feedback loop that generates value throughout the entire Guru network. This value is set to be further enhanced as governance mechanisms, hackathons, developer programs, and the Guru token enrich the ecosystem —and rewards and incentive features are rolled out.

GURU token

$GURU is the native token of the Guru network. It will be used for distributing revenue among many participants in the Guru ecosystem, such as contributors and stakers. As well as being a revenue distribution tool, the token will power the extensive Guru ecosystem. GURU will be utilized to pay transaction and service fees, AI usage and compute fees, Flow orchestrator fees, and more.

Tokenomics and incentive mechanisms

Gurus and Individual Agents are primarily incentivized through two mechanisms:

  • Instantiation fees from BBPM processes that are listed in the IAAS Catalog.
  • Fees from providing Individual Agents as a service, and supporting network operations by offering their infrastructure for computational tasks.

Users can also lock GURU tokens to support the network and earn rewards. The token will also offer passive income activities beyond staking, including lending, borrowing, and yield farming. GURU will also be used to support bridging and interoperability services.

The total supply of GURU is set at 1,000,000,000 GURU. The initial circulating supply will be around 20-30% of total supply.

In terms of token allocation, the breakdown is as follows:

  • Key contributors: 20%
  • Organization treasury: 20%
  • Ecosystem development: 10%
  • Investors: 20%
  • Advisors: 2%
  • Partnership: 1%
  • Early liquidity and pricing: 10%
