AI tokens have been rising since the announcement of Sam Altman’s return to OpenAI as the company’s CEO.

According to data provided by CoinGecko, the AI tokens category rose by around $50 million in the past few hours — rising from $6.45 billion at around 06:00 UTC to $6.5 billion at the time of writing. 

The total 24-hour trading volume for the AI category has reached $793 million, per CoinGecko data.

The rise comes after OpenAI announced the return of Altman with a new board of Bret Taylor, Larry Summers, and Adam D’Angelo. The new agreement between Altman and OpenAI comes while the CEO had offers from Cardano and Microsoft.
