According to the developers, the platform has gained strong popularity since its launch a few months ago. In a statement, Dr. Chengdiao Fan, one of the co-founders said:

“Staked DMs is Pi Network’s attempt to answer this need by allowing members across the Pi Network community to message each other directly on a one-to-one basis. And thanks to its Web3 mechanism designed to signal constructive connections while curbing unwanted communications, it may ultimately solve for DM spamming problems common to Web2 platforms while allowing more accessibility.”

In addition to its browser and Fireside Forum, Pi Network is also incentivising developers to build apps in its ecosystem through its hackathons. Developers have created apps in key industries like social media, decentralised finance, and even gaming.

For starters, Pi Network is a cryptocurrency that seeks to disrupt the industry. It does that by simplifying how people mine digital currencies. Unlike Bitcoin, which requires advanced computers to mine, Pi users can mine using any smartphone.

Pi Network has become incredibly popular over the years. Its application has over 50 million downloads in Android while its Twitter platform has over 2 million followers. In contrast, Cardano has 1.3 million followers while while Tron has 1.4 million.

Pi coin cannot be spent or converted into fiat currencies since the coin has been in an enclosed mainnet in the past two years. According to the developers, this enclosed mainnet is needed as they continue to verify the KYC in the ecosystem.
