Malaysia, a South-East Asian country occupying parts of the Malay Peninsula and the island of Borneo is one of those few countries that have persistently involved in Pi Network’s affair especially since the beginning of barter. Recently, the PiChainMall listed Malaysia amongst the first countries it was going to launch barter.
Prior to the launching of the barter by PiChainMall, P2P transactions have been reported amongst the Malaysian pioneers but the one that thrilled everyone is October 2nd barter carnival.
On the second day of October, Malacca City (also spelled Melaka) the capital of the coastal state of Malacca, in South-Western Malaysia witnessed a transformational tsunami in the history of the Pi Network. The Pi barter carnival which attracted pioneers from Kuala Lumpur, Kota Kinabalu, George Town, Johor Bahru, Putrajaya and those resident in the heart of Melaka was put together by the Pi world cafe.[irp]
Several items were displayed for sell and the unit of payment was 100% Pi (π). The Pi World Cafe sold many items ranging from mobile gadgets which were mostly phone accessories, Car universal holders Pi branded shirts and groceries as well.
This development has triggered pioneers from other countries to organize more pi barter events as we may be witnessing in the coming weeks.
In case you are not aware
Barter was known as the exchange of goods and services for other goods e.g Mr. A needs cup while Mr. B needs plate, because Mr. A already has plates Mr. B will give Mr. A cup and collect his plate and vice versa. But in this context barter will be the exchange of goods or services for Pi Network’s virtual Coin.
