Pi Network, the decentralized cryptocurrency platform, has been facing criticism from its users over the pending KYC verification process. Pi Network has been inviting its users, referred to as Pioneers, to submit their KYC requirements to migrate to the mainnet and exchange Pi Coins. However, many Pioneers who completed the requirements are still waiting for verification, with some pending for almost six months.
Pioneers have expressed their frustration on social media platforms, stating that they are unable to access their Pi Coins due to the pending KYC status. Without KYC verification, users cannot migrate to the mainnet and exchange their Pi Coins for other cryptocurrencies or fiat currency.
Pi Network’s website states that the KYC verification process should take 24-48 hours, but many Pioneers are still waiting for verification months after submitting their documents. Some users have also reported that their documents were rejected without any explanation or reason, leading to further frustration.
Pi Network has acknowledged the delay in KYC verification and has stated that they are working to resolve the issue. However, Pioneers are growing increasingly impatient and are questioning the credibility of the platform. Some users have even accused Pi Network of running a scam, citing the prolonged KYC verification process as evidence.

The delay in KYC verification is not only affecting Pioneers but also hindering Pi Network’s growth and adoption. Many users who were initially interested in the platform are now hesitant to join due to the reported issues with KYC verification.
Pi Network’s team needs to address the concerns of Pioneers and provide a clear explanation for the delay in KYC verification. They must also work to expedite the verification process to ensure that users can access their Pi Coins and migrate to the mainnet without further delays. Otherwise, Pi Network risks losing the trust and support of its user base.
Pi Core Team Responds to Pioneers’ Grievances on KYC Verification
In light of the growing complaints from Pi Network users, the Pi Core Team has responded with a statement addressing the delayed KYC verification process. The Pi Core Team acknowledges the importance of KYC verification and utility building in the launch of the Pi Network’s mainnet and has assured Pioneers that they are working to address the issue as urgently as possible.
Nicolas Kokkalis, one of the founders of Pi Network, has also suggested a possible solution for the KYC verification issue. He encouraged Pioneers who have already passed the KYC process to apply to become validators on the platform. Validators are responsible for verifying KYC in their respective countries, which could help to speed up the verification process and alleviate the backlog.
The Pi Core Team’s response has been met with mixed reactions from Pioneers. Some have praised the team for their transparency and efforts to address the issue, while others remain skeptical of the proposed solution. Some users have expressed concerns that relying on validators to verify KYC could lead to potential security risks and fraud.
Despite the concerns, the Pi Core Team remains committed to launching the mainnet as soon as possible. The mainnet launch is a crucial step in the development of the Pi Network, and the team is working tirelessly to ensure that all technical hurdles, including KYC verification, are addressed before launch.
As the Pi Network continues to grow in popularity, it is important for the team to prioritize the needs and concerns of their user base. The delayed KYC verification process has been a major issue for Pioneers, and the Pi Core Team’s response is a step in the right direction towards resolving the issue and maintaining the trust of their users.
