My Say on Pi Network

Pi Network has crossed 23 million miners across the globe last month and today it would have crossed 25 million. Looks like it has reached more than 175 countries.

With such enormous spread and rapid growth, the future currency for mass adoption will be the Pi Network. Financial institutions across the globe will see as well as feel the impact and monetary authorities will try their means to deviate people from using Pi Network.

Today there are around 11,145 different cryptocurrencies as per the report from ‘The Economist.” Unfortunately, none of 11,145 different cryptos can be used daily for buying goods and services, rather cryptocurrencies are used to buy another cryptocurrencies.

This depicts that cryptocurrencies need to integrate into our day-to-day lives for payment of utility bills, purchase of goods and payment to services delivered, and so on.

Who is The Owner of Pi Network?

The brain behind Pi Network is Stanford PhDs. Today, billions from the globe use the products of tech giant companies like Google and YouTube of which the founders are all from Standford graduates.

Standford graduates have never stopped amazing billions of users across the globe and surely one of the assurances for Pi Network is being the CT is from the University of Standford.

And the Google Playstore bristles with different apps where cryptocurrencies can be mined in which the ideas were all copied from the Pi Network.

Some of their white papers are copied from Pi Network even word by word. Dr. Nicolas replied once in a developer forum that “imitation is the greatest form of flattery.”

Although we can mine other cryptocurrencies on the phone, as a miner, we mustn’t use the same user credentials and CT has repeatedly announced on Pi’s front screen not to share the passphrase. If shared mistakenly, it is important to generate a new passphrase before manner.

Although other cryptocurrencies are available on iOS and Google Playstore, none of them can compete with Pi Network and I am confident after reviewing their white papers and algorithm used. Some apps have ads to watch so that they generate income although the project may or may not succeed in the future.

Now September 30 is approaching nearer, I think the pioneers across the globe should not miss voting the utility apps built during Hackathon. I think CT will announce this soon as September 12, as a deadline is over.

Having utility apps in Pi Browser will SHOWCASE THE POPULARITY OF PI COINS in the coming decades.

Happy Mining. Never miss mining when it is free. Avoid having double accounts. Follow CT instructions and never believe thousands of speculations available on other platforms.
