2021 Pi2Day

To celebrate the Pi2 day, Pi is excited to launch the new Pi Apps utilities platform, Pi Developer Portal and Pi Hackathon. Community developers will now be able to begin building and testing applications on the Pi platform for millions of users to use.

Project overview and significance

Pi is a global cryptocurrency with high transaction throughput, providing instant global financial settlements. On top of this utility, Pi Network seeks to self-actualize by providing value through a decentralized network of programmatic utilities (apps) that use the Pi blockchain as a medium of exchange to transact goods and services. The new Pi Utilities Platform is built as the infrastructure to that end, connecting with the Pi Testnet blockchain in the backend (and eventually the Mainnet) and with Pi Browser’s user accessibility in the frontend.

Pi Utilities Platform Launch

Through community development, Pi apps will be implemented as web-apps that run inside the Pi Browser. With the current SDK, Pioneers can make Test-Pi payments to third-party apps and vice versa. A Pi payment is always initiated and permitted at the computing device of the sender, be it an individual Pioneer or a third-party app, because it’s the sender who must sign it with their own private key. Third-party Pi apps can request a Pioneer to pay them Pi for goods and services through the Pi wallet with a simple JavaScript call using the Pi JavaScript SDK. Pioneers pay by signing the transaction through their Pi Wallet. Third-party Pi apps can send Pi to Pioneers by signing through their developer wallet on their servers.

Pioneers can visit a third-party app website through Pi Browser. When they want to purchase something on that app, they can tap to pay-in-Pi to be redirected to the Pi wallet’s address wallet.pi, where they can access their own wallet and approve the payment. After the payment is successfully registered on the Pi blockchain, they will be redirected back to the address of the third-party app to proceed.

All transactions occurring on the current platform use only Test-Pi since its SDK and Pi apps payment flows are connected with the Pi Testnet blockchain. Our goal is to iterate and improve the Platform and its Pi Apps with the community so that they will be compatible and ready to go once Mainnet launches.

For ecosystem app developers to focus on developing Pi utilities and features without worrying about scalability and server costs, we built standardized development and deployment resources — a specialized Kubernetes cluster with accompanying docker containers. Ecosystem apps developers can upload their apps directly onto the Pi’s cluster of thousands of server CPUs, ready to run. More details about this resource will be released soon.

Pi Developer Community Launch

Launched a few weeks ago, Pi Network's new Developer Portal allows community developers to register for credentials to access Pi Platform APIs and create third-party Pi apps on the Pi Testnet. Through the Developer Portal, Developers can access different resources and perform compliance check-ins in the future.

For announcements, iterative communications and developer community management, we are also launching a dedicated Discord server for developers to connect & build Pi together. The Discord server will provide educational resources, AMAs and community events dedicated to help the developer community build the next-generation of Pi Apps. Participants who 1) pass a developer quiz on Brainstorm to become a verified developer and/or 2) join a Hackathon team will be invited to this Discord server. If you belong to either category above, please wait for our invitation inside our Pi app.

#BuildPi2gether Pi Hackathon Announcement

To kick off our developer community’s launch, Pi Network is announcing the start of our new Pi Hackathon today! The #BuildPi2gether Hackathon is a collaborative event where Pioneers & developers join together to build the future of Pi. We will be hosting the Hackathon over 7 weeks from June 28-August 10th.

There are two categories of apps to build:

Ecosystem apps - Functional apps that better the ecosystem & functions. Business apps - Apps that serve a consumer or commerce product.


$100,000 USD and 100,000 Pi will be offered as prizes for top team projects that meet the criteria.

For each category of apps (Ecosystem & Business apps)

1st prize = US$20,000 + 20,000 Pi

2nd prize = US$15,000 + 15,000 Pi

3rd prize = US$10,000 + 10,000 Pi

Honorary mentions (5 winners) =- US$1000 each + 1,000 Pi

l: Up to US$50,000 and 50,000 Pi in prizes per category, which makes $100,000 USD and 100,000 Pi for both categories.

Selected judges and the Pioneer community will evaluate completed projects, and the Pi Core team will decide winners based on these ratings.

To participate in the online hackathon:

Join the Hackathon on the Brainstorm app

Propose an idea or join an existing team.

Join your hackathon team’s dedicated discord channel after the invitation to the new developer Discord server.

Start building your idea with your team until August 10th with a mid-term progress report and final video presentation!

A well-balanced Hackathon team will compromise of experts in:

Development: Builders of the third-party Pi app with code

Business: Professionals determining the business viability and growth of the project

Marketing and Communications: Specialists presenting their product vision to the community

Design: Artists creating the UI/UX of the app for Pioneers’ usability

Others: Pi Hackathon is open to everyone! Communicate and utilize your special skill sets to contribute to the future of Pi. Reach out to teams and share your expertise.

For the detailed agenda of the Hackathon, read more on this blog post.

Overall, the Pi Hackathon will help foster the decentralized development of Pi’s ecosystem on the Pi Platform, leveraging the power of our global community to achieve the breadth and scale of traditional economies, where real value and utilities are created.

Pioneers, let’s #BuildPi2gether!!!



2021 PI2日

为了庆祝Pi2日,Pi兴奋地推出了新的Pi应用程序实用程序平台Pi开发者门户和Pi Hackathon。社区开发者现在可以开始在Pi平台上构建和测试应用程序,供数百万用户使用。


Pi是一种具有高交易吞吐量的全球加密货币,提供即时全球金融结算。在这个实用程序之上,Pi网络寻求 自我实现 通过使用Pi区块链作为交易商品和服务的交换媒介的程序化实用程序(应用程序)的分散网络提供价值。新的Pi实用程序平台是为此目的而构建的基础设施,与 Pi Testnet区块链 在后端(最终在主网)和 Pi浏览器 前端的用户可访问性。


通过社区开发,Pi应用程序将作为 web应用程序 在Pi浏览器中运行。使用当前的SDK,先驱可以 向第三方应用程序支付测试Pi,反之亦然。 Pi支付总是在发送者的计算设备上发起和允许的,无论是个人先驱还是第三方应用程序,因为它是 必须签名的发件人 它有自己的私钥。第三方Pi应用程序可以请求先锋通过Pi钱包向他们支付Pi商品和服务,只需使用Pi JavaScript SDK进行简单的JavaScript调用。先驱者通过他们的Pi钱包签署交易支付。第三方Pi应用程序可以通过服务器上的开发者钱包签名,将Pi发送给先驱。

先锋可以通过Pi浏览器访问第三方应用程序网站。当他们想在那个应用上购买东西时,他们可以 点击以Pi支付 重定向到Pi钱包的地址 wallet.pi,在这里他们可以访问自己的钱包和 批准付款。在网上成功注册付款后 Pi区块链,它们将被重定向回第三方应用程序的地址继续。

当前平台上发生的所有事务都使用 仅测试Pi 自从 SDK和Pi应用程序支付流 与 Pi Testnet区块链。我们的目标是迭代和改进平台及其Pi应用程序,使之与社区兼容,并在Mainnet启动后随时可用。

为了让生态系统应用程序开发人员专注于开发Pi实用程序和功能,而不必担心可伸缩性和服务器成本,我们构建了标准化的开发和部署资源- 一个专门的Kubernetes集群,附带docker容器。生态系统应用程序开发人员可以将他们的应用程序直接上传到Pi的数千个服务器cpu集群上,随时可以运行。有关此资源的更多详细信息将很快发布。


几周前推出的Pi网络 开发者门户 允许社区开发人员注册凭据以访问Pi平台API并在Pi Testnet上创建第三方Pi应用程序。通过开发人员门户,开发人员将来可以访问不同的资源并执行法规遵从性签入。

对于公告、迭代通信和开发人员社区管理,我们还推出了 专用Discord服务器 供开发人员连接和构建Pi。Discord服务器将提供教育资源、AMA和社区活动,帮助开发者社区构建下一代Pi应用程序。参与者1)通过头脑风暴的开发人员测验,成为 验证开发者 和/或2)加入 编程马拉松 团队将被邀请到此Discord服务器。如果您属于上述任一类别,请在我们的Pi应用程序中等待我们的邀请。

#BuildPi2gether Pi Hackathon公告

为了启动我们的开发者社区的发布,Pi网络宣布 今天是我们新的Pi Hackathon的开始! “BuildPi2gether Hackathon”是一项合作活动,先锋和开发者共同打造Pi的未来。从6月28日到8月10日,我们将举办为期7周的Hackathon。






一等奖=20000美元+20000 Pi

二等奖=15000美元+15000 Pi

三等奖=10000美元+10000 Pi

荣誉奖(5名获奖者)=每人1000美元+1000 Pi






ps:说重点,其实就是pi项目方拿出来10万美金+10万pi举办活动,邀请全球的开发者加入pi network网络开发基于pi生态的区块链应用,大家可以参考以太坊生态,今天的以太坊生态之所以如此强大,是因为以太坊上诞生了无数的区块链落地应用。而派作为高效的,全球性流通的加密货币,如果想有更高的价值,那么拥有强大的使用生态是关键。

所以项目方拿出如此可观的开发者奖励,就是激励开发者参与pi的生态项目建议,因为任何一个又实际价值的区块链项目,没有落地应用,那就是空气。所以pi项目方邀请更多的参与者来一起为pi 赋能,你大概能理解到这点就可以了。

所以我们说,未来pi 的生态上会诞生很多类似电商易货,服务交换等根植于流通领域的项目。从现在开始大家可以仔细的关注这些项目,尤其是前期没有跟随pi很好的挖矿的矿工朋友,真的看准了一个pi上面的生态项目,那获得的回报肯定也是丰厚的,可以多去了解下以太坊及以太坊生态的历史,以太坊生态上诞生了很多的子应用,比如去中心化的交易所,金融借贷服务,NFT等等,这些子应用的代币价值也是非常高的。
