On the other hand, many believe the education industry will be shaken the most. Although, Elon Musk’s statement suggests that it won’t be a quick change, “It’s easier to land a man on Mars than to change the school system”.
WAGPT’s Birth Story
One Saturday afternoon in Cape Town, South Africa, Christian was popping in at a supermarket to buy a loaf of bread. Before purchasing he was trying to ask ChatGPT about low carb bread and what to look out for, but while loading the homepage his data ran out. So he texted his girlfriend via WhatsApp to ask ChatGPT and let him know. This was possible due to his cheap WhatsApp bundle he gets monthly. While waiting for her response, he thought by himself - if he was able to access ChatGPT via a WhatsApp contact, he would have uninterrupted access to ChatGPT even without general data bundles which is much more expensive.
According to Christian, he didn't sleep for a few days and made ChatGPT available via a WhatsApp contact for 13 friends and family. Two days later, there were 45 people using it. He realized that he is not the only one interested in a no extra app install, but convenient solution to access ChatGPT on the go.
Today it’s about 5 weeks later since then, WAGPT is in about 42 countries and counting with $0 spent on marketing to date. WAGPT is committed to helping OpenAI shape the future of this technology, and how people access it.
WAGPT is building a convenient, affordable and secure way for everyday people to get access to this revolutional AI assistant called ChatGPT. This way is by adding a contact in WhatsApp, called WAGPT via their website https://www.wagpt.co or by receiving the contact’s number from someone manually.
Christian said that he isn’t the first one to integrate ChatGPT into a social messaging tool like WhatsApp, but he added that he definitely is one of the few who have decided that he will take this to the people who he believes need this technology. There are also many people that don’t have a $20 money bank as per OpenAI pricing to access ChatGPT without interruption. WAGPT is able to bring the convenience, security of user messages as well as a more affordable solution to the market by having a subscription model around ¼ of $20, that will be implemented sometime this year.
Yes, WAGPT is currently free to use. Christian said it will be free to use for as long as his personal income allows. He sees paying for the accessibility as an investment to grow rapidly.
WAGPT.co believes they have an edge over their competitors due to their ability to have a cheaper pricing model for their near future, some unseen innovative in-chat features and their vision to create some advanced tools for their users that can inspire and educate them on what WAGPT is capable of on a daily basis, which he adds will be inspired by users.
Christian mentioned that WAGPT measures their success by the amount of people and countries who they have been able to educate and enable with this technology. WAGPT has the ability to radically accelerate productivity on the go. Have it being research, learning or everyday tasks like writing emails.

The most touching moment for Christian is when a user reaches out within direct messages to thank him for creating this convenient way to use ChatGPT via a WhatsApp contact. Christian says those small things make those 5am work nights worth the grind.
