We aim to launch the Mainnet by the end of this year. Once we are on mainnet anyone can exchange Pi freely directly through the pi blockchain.
Ok. No problem. Your old stats are still stored under your username, and you will be invited again. Invitations are based on specific node installations, so now that you reformatted your system your old installation is gone but the stats we have for you are still there. So no worries. Give it some time.
@YQ8866 There are two kinds of KYC at play here. One is the current solution we have that we announced 100K slots. And the other is the future solution that will be able support all pioneers, that can be found in the brainstorm section, along with many other proposals by pioneers. We will make more announcements in the coming weeks about both.
@killerfrost01 The wallets need to be designed well for everyone to be able to understand. Right now we have launched them only for moderators. And soon we will invite all nodes to try them. However this is not the final version. We need more design iterations before the wallets are ready to be released to everyone. The major consideration is how to design them so that people have full control of their assets while at the same time we make it easy for them to not loose their private keys, loosing their assets.
Typo: soon we will invite all NODES to try them. Mods are already using them.
@ngocmai2012 Nice. We will have a block explorer after the wallets are released. We are focusing on the wallets first.
@mmc49101 Good to know your incoming connections are full. We have about 5000 functioning nodes now.
@ngocmai2012 Pi has not publicly launched its mainnet yet, so there cannot be a block explorer for pi mainnet yet. The testnet is live and could have a block explorer but we are focusing on the wallets right now instead. Maybe a community member can build a block explorer for the testnet if they like, other we will definitely create one after wallets.
@kangwei0612 Everyone will have a wallet eventually. But initially the wallet will only be able on the desktop version of Pi. This only available to nodes.
