HUMAN Protocol Moves to Solana Blockchain In Search Of Scalability And Speed
- Hybrid labor protocol, HUMAN protocol, is moving to Solana blockchain.
- The partnership aims to provide scalable and secure decentralized labor pools.
HUMAN Protocol is a hybrid framework that helps in machine learning techniques by providing a marketplace for humans to contribute their reasoning, mental skills, and knowledge. These activities include labeling tasks, voicing tasks, and identifying photos, videos, and sounds to improve machines' intelligence.
The company is partnering with Solana blockchain, an open-source and scalable blockchain, to build a decentralized labor pool to complete these tasks. Growing demand for the protocol and scalability constraints has seen HUMAN Protocol turn to Solana to settle the large number of transactions on-chain, settle labor pools efficiently and make payments instantly.
Earlier today @human_protocol officially announced they will be integrating with Solana to launch their decentralized labor pools.

The Solana Foundation team is working on deploying the decentralized labor pools on a functional marketplace. HUMAN Protocol developers work on easing the onboarding process for developers and users on the platform. Lonnie Rae, Head of Operations at HUMAN Protocol Foundation, said in a statement on the partnership. Rae added,
“Building on Solana should enable us to scale our decentralized labor pools significantly for better operating performance across the HUMAN platform,”
“We’re so excited to see what we can build together.”
Solana currently provides over 700,000 transactions per second (TPS) – way above the transaction speeds of Bitcoin at 5-7 TPS, ETH 1.0 (15-20 TPS), and ETH 2.0 (100,000 TPS) – which provides a stable option for the HUMAN Protocol, the statement further reads.
HUMAN Protocol is gradually taking over the global CAPTCHA market, which has previously been monopolized by Google’s reCAPTCHA module. hCAPTCHA, built using HUMAN Protocol tech, currently captures over 15% of the market share and disburses the vast information to an open marketplace for anyone to train their machines. This democratizes the access to data important to machine learning, reducing the power Google holds.
“In my mind, they’re creating a global brain formed through billions of interactions in a decentralized marketplace,” Raj Gokal, COO at Solana said. “This is the rare combination of vision, execution, and ambition that Solana was built for.”
HUMAN Protocol now joins a vast list of projects leveraging Solana’s blockchain to optimize speed and utilize the scalability properties it offers. Following the integration of Circle’s USDC stablecoin on Solana, one of the largest blockchain-based music streaming platforms, Audius, integrated on the blockchain, and Velas, a self-optimization blockchain platform, also joined the blockchain to increase transaction speed.
