The inaugural ChippiCon event at Permissionless II is just around the corner! This highly anticipated gathering will bring Chippi enthusiasts from around the globe together in one place for the very first time. So, you might be wondering, what exactly is ChippiCon all about? Can you join in on the event? Or are you still scratching your head, asking, “What on earth is a Chippi?” In today’s article, we’ll cover all these points and provide you with the details on how to be a part of this historical event.
History of the Chippi Community
Enjoy this brief history of the Chippi collection from an excerpt of our article, A Tale of Two NFT Projects.
Born out of Bankless DAO, Chippi are “original, hand-drawn characters” created by the artist, Perchy. At first glance, Chippi are simple, but ingrained within the strokes is a high level of attention to detail, thoughtfulness, uniqueness, and creativity. They come in all shapes and sizes, as each custom Chippi buyer had the opportunity to collaborate with Perchy to create the Chippi NFT of their dreams. Some Chippi are embodiments of their owners, some are personifications or “chippifications” of businesses, and others are themed after popular characters. Many more are made to tell stories and events within web3.
Who are Chippi for? The simple answer is everyone and anyone, but the original Chippi series is limited to 500! While 500 may seem like a little compared to other projects, Chippi are a small, tight-knit community. As of September 2023, all 500 Chippi have been claimed, though a few are available on the secondary market.
So if there are 500 Chippi, where do they all belong? The Chippi roadmap states, “Chippi are inhabitants of Bankless Nation.” Within that Bankless Nation are eight prominent “Bankless Locations’’ (with a ninth bonus location for committed collectors). Like Chippi, these locations are hand-drawn NFTs, each representing a visual timestamp of happenings and current events. For example, Castle Ethereum, a Bankless Location, visually interpreted the much-awaited Ethereum Merge. One perk of owning a piece of the collection is that each Chippi is eventually showcased in one of the Bankless Locations!
ChippiCon Event Details
ChippiCon 2023 is scheduled for Sunday, September 10th, from 7:00 p.m. to 10:00 p.m. CST and will take place at Oddwood Brewing in Austin, Texas. This event is the perfect kickoff for the Permissionless II conference! Notably, there is no entrance fee, and no RSVP is necessary. Everyone is warmly invited to attend, whether or not you’re officially part of the Chippi community.
Chippi hodlers are strongly encouraged to showcase their Chippi spirit by dressing up like their Chippi for the occasion. This alone should be a compelling reason to join us, as we eagerly anticipate seeing all the imaginative costumes. Moreover, there are many other reasons why you should consider being a part of this inaugural event!

ChippiCon offers a fantastic opportunity to connect with your web3 friends in person, but that’s not all. Members of the official Chippi team, Kthay and Perchy, will also be in attendance! This is your chance to engage in conversations and share a drink or two with the creative minds behind the project.
