Agents engaging in commerce via self-custody of a wallet

AI Agents could have goals and engage in financial transactions, whether it is selling specialized services or purchasing digital goods/services.

Fully independent AIs can’t KYC at a bank and so would have to self-custody a crypto wallet, and would then be able to engage in a decentralized commerce economy. This also opens up the possibility that they can pay humans for actions taken in the physical world.

The question is, do you think AIs will be able to safely control their own wallet, and what does a network of interacting agents look like to you?
