Pi Network is aware of reports that several unauthorized third party exchanges, and potential unknown third parties, are seeking to list Pi or tokens purporting to be Pi, or some purported derivative of Pi, without the consent, authority or involvement of Pi Network.

It is important to reiterate that Pi is currently in the Enclosed Network and is not approved by Pi Network for listing on any exchange or for trading, and Pi Network was not involved with any of these purported postings or listings.

Currently, Pi Network recommends to all Pioneers and potential Pi users not to engage with any of these exchanges or third party actors as their actions are not affiliated with Pi Network, and could result in substantial loss or damage to Pi users. Pi Network is also requesting these posts and exchange listings removed, and evaluating additional actions with respect to the third parties and exchanges. In the interim, it is important to reiterate that the transaction of Pi through an exchange is explicitly prohibited during the Enclosed Mainnet period, and doing so would be a violation of Pi’s policies.

The unique innovative design of Pi’s Enclosed Network period is a strategic choice to build a network of true substance and utilities with the best interest of the network, the community and individual Pioneers in mind. The current Enclosed Network period of Mainnet allows Pi Network to focus on two priorities: mass KYC/migration and ecosystem utilities-building. Both are essential steps towards our ultimate objective of building a viable ecosystem to get ready for Open Mainnet.
