How to fix this?

I got that car last year and it had an awful big chip in the hood. I cleaned it, put multiple layers of paint and seal coat on it and sanded it. in the end it looked decent except that it was slightly darker then the rest. now over the winter it started cracking and now I have paint chips just falling out.
what do I need to do to fix this permanently? Should I prefill that chip with something?

For a lasting repair you'll probably need to get your hood resprayed. I just had my whole front clip redone and I'm going to get it wrapped in paint protection film to keep it from chipping again.

That looks like a pretty nasty chip. If the rest of the paint in the area is in good shape, you could find a reputable shop to touch up the area. It would involve sanding, primer and blending in of the area. Or just get the entire hood resprayed.
