What is Pi?

- Pi is a new digital currency developed by Stanford PhDs, with over 3.5 million members worldwide.

- Pi is a new cryptocurrency for and by everyday people that you can “mine” (or earn) from your phone.

Pi is not Free Money!

- It is a long-term project whose success depends on the collective contributions of its members.

How does this app work & how do I earn more Pi?

- This app allows you to earn Pi by making simple contributions to Pi’s community.

- The more you contribute, the more Pi you earn.

Do I need to leave the app open to mine? Does the app drain my battery or data?

- You do not need to leave the app open to mine.

- Pi does not affect your phone’s performance, drain your battery, or use your network data. 

- Once you hit the lightning button, you can even close the app and you will continue to mine Pi.

Can I withdraw my Pi? What is the timeline for withdrawals?

- No, you cannot withdraw Pi yet! You will be able to withdraw Pi or exchange Pi for other currencies in Phase 3 of the project (now is going phase 2) when Pi transitions to a fully decentralized blockchain.

Is this app a wallet? Will we hold our own private / public keys? And can we use an external wallet to hold our Pi in the future?

- Yes, your phones will serve as a cryptocurrency wallet that will be linked to your current accounts (number / Facebook)

Download Node (available for Windows OS & Mac OS)

* If your PC/Laptop have a virtualization function - You should turn on it in the BIOS. In other case - don't try to install Node!!!

For example:


PS: I can't write more info about Node & how to use Node because I didn't install it!

4. Why do earlier members mine at a higher rate?

Earlier members mine at a higher rate to reward contributions to the network when they are most needed. 

"Pi aims to be the world’s most widely used and distributed cryptocurrency. To achieve that goal, Pi incentivizes its earliest members to make contributions that will ensure its success (e.g., securing and growing the network). To reflect the importance of early contributions, the rate of mining decreases as more people join the network. At this time, the base rate of mining halves every time the number of active users increases by a factor of 10 (see graph below). This rate will eventually fall to 0 when the network reaches a certain number of users (e.g. 10 million or 100 million). At that point, just like Bitcoin, miners will continue to be rewarded through transaction fees and not through the minting of new currency."  

5. What is the Ambassador role? How does the earning team work?

As an Ambassador, you earn up to a 25% bonus on your base mining rate for each person you invite to the network.

6. What is the Contributor role? How do I become a contributor?

Becoming a Contributor allows you to earn more Pi by building a security circle of 3-5 trusted members.

7. What are security circles?

Security circles are groups of 3-5 trusted people built by each of Pi’s members. Security circles secure the currency by building a global trust graph that prevents bad actors from executing fraudulent transactions (fell free to add me to your security circle!)
