How to Download Pi Network

The Pi Network has been running on testnet for over half a year now and is looking set to launch its mainnet soon.

The project has amassed a huge community across the world and the project has swelled to over 35 million users and 2 million Twitter followers, and has a bustling internal social media network.

The Pi Network is available on mobile through Android and iOS, so users will be able to start playing from anywhere in the world. And don’t worry, with over 50 available languages, Pioneers can’t get started in a language familiar to them!

Here in this article, we will explain how to get started with Pi Network and become a PIoneer yourself!

Step 1:

KYC — Pi Network requires users to KYC before getting started. You can get started with either your Facebook profile, phone number, or your iOS account or Google Play account.

Step 2:

Users will be prompted to pick an available username and choose a password. Be sure to pick something fun! This will be the name you use when chatting to other Pioneers in the vast Pi Social Media network!

Names must be between 4 and 20 characters. Sorry, no tiny titles here!

Your Pi Network name will serve as the invitation code to other members as well. By inviting more members, you take on a new role as an Ambassador of Pi.

Step 3:

Next will be the referral page. Users can submit a referral code to start mining at a higher rate and join another Pioneers direct community. To get extra 25% on mining rate, use the Referral code: limbix

Step 4:

Once you clear the account and referral pages, you are good to go start mining!

For information on the Pi Mining Rate, read the Pi White Paper.

Pi Network Features

The Pi Network internal Decentralized Application (dApp) has several features to enhance the Pioneer experience.

Users can chat with other Pioneers on the internal chat system and can join together into communities to learn more about who is within their network. It’s a great way to connect with like-minded people.

The Pi Dapp also gives access to the Pi Browser, an outside app that brings the best of Web2 browsing into the decentralized world.

Please be sure to read the Pi disclaimer. The project insists it is not free money and users should do well to DYOR by reading the Pi Whitepaper.

What is Pi Network:

Pi Network is a mobile blockchain mining project on a mission to give everyone access to the cryptocurrency revolution. The project was founded by a team of Stanford University Ph.D. candidates who designed a mobile-friendly blockchain mining algorithm.

Pi Network has evolved over the years, organized a hackathon, built a couple of working Pi blockchain apps, and is now in the final stages of transition to public mainnet.
