And it is a good opportunity to collect PI coins through daily mining. Once it is listed its value can reach $200 per coin. Like Bit Coin, it is now free. Once Phase 3 is launched, holders will be able to take full control of the keys to their private and public wallet, and use the coin to buy goods and services on Pi's peer-to-peer marketplace, or exchange it for fiat currency.
Without the keys, users cannot transfer or spend the currency they hold. In general, no application can read another application's environment. This means that the pi app process on your phone cannot read the data folders of other apps. Although the app became popular and has many users, there are many who do not understand what its value is, how it really works and whether its referral system is not just another pyramid scheme.
The Pi currency is still in beta mode, but they are looking to add users as nodes to the network through word of mouth. Pi is not traded on exchanges during this phase and it is impossible to "buy Pi with any other currency". Before concluding, I urge you to do your own research on the Pi network and cyrptocurrencies in general to have a full understanding of how they work and have your own opinion on the matter. It is the Pi node software that runs the core of the SCP algorithm, taking into account the trust graph information provided by the Contributors.
Holders of PI will be able to convert them into "real money" when they purchase goods and services in the PI market or exchange PI for fiat currency. So if the only real reasons you think we should skip Pi is because it will potentially never have value and because it is mining our data, then we should drop half the Internet because of those 2 criteria. Early adopters are hoarding Pi cryptocurrency in anticipation of the price going way up after Phase 3 goes live. I have been mining Pi for a long time and have accumulated over 6000 Pi, but suddenly the PI application stopped working.
As a result, the Pi coin is still not available for trading on any cryptocurrency exchange or trading platform. The future of Pi coin will depend on the process of its transition from test network to mainnet operations and the adoption of applications in the Pi Network ecosystem. However, the Pi Network introduced a hackathon event that follows the example of other coins that pay at events. So, go on with your compelling reasons why you think the network would not deliver and as a bonus, give users what they should be looking for and suggest to the community to deliver value (I think you have but it's a bit hard to see with that title mixed with thoughts in the reader's mind).
If you look at the app in the app shop there is always a link that shows what permissions an app has in terms of access to your device.
