Pi Convention Panel on the future of mining, including a Core Team introduction of the panel and representative Pioneers speaking about whether to continue or stop mobile mining. Swipe left for more talks.
Welcome to the fourth session of the Pi Convention. This is a Pi Panel session where the Pi Core Team will introduce the questions in discussion and representative Pioneers will present their views on these questions. The Panel discussion is about the future of Pi mobile mining
The original design of Pi’s economic model and its mining mechanism is to strike a balance between access and scarcity. While setting out to be the most inclusive and widespread digital currency in the world, Pi tries to achieve a level of scarcity through a mining mechanism where the base mining rate halves when the network size increases by 10X. This mechanism also provides a meritocratic reward system to members based on their contributions to Pi. Even though in our White Paper, we specified the network size to be at least 100 Million people, the Core Team had left the decision open, as to whether we will continue or stop mobile mining at the mark of 10M network size, because back then we were uncertain about at least the following three aspects to make a well-informed decision: 1) first, how fast the network grows, for example, how fast we achieve all the previous halving milestones; 2) second the progress of ecosystem building including utilities and applications of Pi at the time of 10M, 3) third, the progress of the mainnet at the time of the 10M. Also, at this network size, the Core Team would want to take input from its members about this question, in order for us to make the final decision that is best for the whole network.
We predicted that the community opinions will be split based on at least simple rational motivations derived from when the Pioneer joined and started mining, i.e. how much Pi the Pioneer has mined. However, more importantly we value voices that support their opinions and sentiment with reasonings and considerations of the overall goals of Pi, the health of the ecosystem, and the interest of the whole community. For this purpose, we went through a sophisticated process to solicit and collect such input from our community, including applications to speakers, moderators recommendations, video surveys to collect video responses, and spend tremendous time watching and processing such submissions.
We’re currently having over 9 Million engaged Pioneers, approaching the 10 Million mark. We’d like to pose this question at this convention in the format of a Panel, where, for some vocal Pioneers who applied to speak and submitted their video responses, we selected well thought-out, articulated, clear and representative videos to be featured as part of the Panel discussion right after this current Core Team video. Even though we only selected a limited number of video responses here, the Core Team watched all the submissions. For the larger number of Pioneers who did not apply to express their thoughts through video format, you can participate in the Panel through the forum in the Topic on the homescreen.
We’re well aware that in some regions, there have been activities campaigning for a certain type of view on this question and some campaigns even use economic incentives to manipulate the popular views. We hope Pioneers can form their individual thoughts independently without any misinformation and disinformation, with the overall benefits of the whole network in mind.
After the Pi Convention, the Core Team will review the written responses in the Topic, in addition to the video responses, and will provide an analysis incorporating these community views, experts’ views and the Core Team’s own views to make the final decision about whether to continue or stop mobile mining when our network size hits the 10 Million mark. We all hope Pi will succeed, and the Core Team is trying to find and evaluate the best option for this decision in a systematic and scientific way.
欢迎大家出席Pi 公约第四次会议。这是一个 Pi 小组会议，Pi 核心团队将介绍讨论中的问题，有代表性的先驱者将对这些问题发表他们的观点。小组讨论是关于 Pi 移动采矿的未来.
Pi 的经济模式和采矿机制的最初设计是在获取和稀缺之间取得平衡。虽然计划成为世界上最具包容性和广泛使用的数字货币，Pi 试图通过挖掘机制实现一定程度的稀缺性，即当网络规模增加 10 倍时，基础挖掘率减半。这个机制也提供了一个精英奖励系统，根据成员对 Pi 的贡献。即使在我们的白皮书,我们指定了网络规模至少 1 亿人,核心团队敞开的决定,是否我们将继续或停止挖矿在 1000 万用户的时候,因为我们不确定至少有以下三个方面:1)首先,网络以多快的速度增长,例如,我们如何快速实现所有的前一半的里程碑;2)第二，1000 万用户时 Pi 的效用和应用的生态系统建设进展;3)第三，1000 万用户时，主网的进展情况， 同样，在这种网络规模下，核心团队希望从其成员那里获得有关此问题的意见，以便我们做出最适合整个网络的最终决定。
我们预测，社区的意见将会有分歧，至少是基于简单的理性动机，从先驱者何时加入并开始开采，即先驱者开采了多少 Pi。然而，更重要的是，我们重视那些支持他们的观点和情感的声音，这些声音是基于 Pi 的总体目标、生态系统的健康和整个社区的利益。为了达到这个目的，我们经历了一个复杂的过程，从我们的社区中征集和收集这些信息，包括向演讲者的申请，版主的推荐，收集视频反馈的视频调查，并且花费大量的时间观看和处理这些提交的信息。
我们目前有 900 多万先驱者，接近 1000 万大关。我们想提出这个问题在本公约的格式面板中,在那里,一些先锋参与并提交他们的视频回复,我们选择深思熟虑,把一些视频清晰和代表特色的小组讨论后的视频公布出去。尽管我们在这里只选择了有限数量的视频回复，但核心团队观看了所有提交的视频。对于没有申请通过视频格式表达想法的大量先驱者，您可以通过主屏幕上主题中的论坛来参加小组。
Pi 公约后,核心团队将审查书面反应的话题,除了视频回复,并且将提供一个分析把这些社区的观点,专家的观点和核心团队的观点做出最后决定是否继续或停止移动矿业当我们的网络规模达到 1000 万大关。我们都希望 Pi 能够成功，核心团队正试图以系统和科学的方式找到并评估这个决策的最佳选择。
