Learn, Build, and Monetize with Chipp

Are you an AI builder or just AI-curious? Chipp is hosting a virtual GPT hackathon for you.

GPTs are the custom chatbots that can now be trained on your own data and knowledge. OpenAI is currently limiting access to select paying customers. When you build a GPT, you can’t charge customers or even see who uses it.

Chipp fixes this.

With our new playground feature, you can build and sell a GPT via the OpenAI’s Assistant API. We are excited to see what you will make, so we are hosting a GPT Hackathon!
