Mine at a higher rate while you can. The mining rate will either halve or fall to zero when Pi reaches 10M engaged Pioneers. As we crossed the mark of 5 Million, we plan to hold an online convention by the end of Q3 2020. Read more about the initial plan for the convention.
Initial plan of the Pi Convention
Pi Network right now has over 6 Million engaged Pioneers, which exclude Pioneers who didn’t reach the third mining sessions and also any suspected fake accounts that we have detected and marked internally. As mentioned in our initial White Paper, we would hold a global convention when we reach 5 Million Pioneers. The Core Team has started planning on the convention and aims to hold it sometime during Q3 of this year. Due to the pandemic of COVID 19, the global convention will be online only. Here are the initial plans we have for the convention.
In addition to the discussion on governance initially mentioned in the White Paper, the convention will also be dedicated to discussions on the development and ecosystem-building of Pi. Specifically, we hope the convention could be an opportunity for the community to discuss 1) the progress in decentralization, i.e. node, Testnet and technical challenges and solutions; 2) the applications of Pi and the direction of the Pi Platform, e.g. showcase of applications by developers, how to create demands for Pi through applications and the platform development.
On governance, through the convention, we hope to surface community leaders and experts to form a committee that will be able to better solicit community voices to help build the future Pi governance structure. At the convention, we can discuss the criteria of electing such committee members, e.g. previous contributions to Pi Network, expertise in different areas, leadership and conflict of interest, and design processes where the committee helps solicit community voices. This committee hopefully will be more responsible for organizing Pi’s future conventions.
The convention will include not only Core Team updates and outlook into the future, but also speakers from Pioneers as third-party developers, moderators and regional representatives, and speakers outside of Pi Network on industry trends. During Q3, we will give further updates as to the specific agenda and format of the convention, on which specific topics we look for from Pioneer speakers, and the selection criteria for such speakers.
