The Pi Network has different Roles that people can fill during this initial Phase. One very important role is The Contributor Role, which unlocks the ability to fill your Security Circle, helping the network weed out bad actors, building trust and helping you earn more Pi per Hour.
Folks new to the Pi Network Mobile app come from a broad range of disciplines, cultures and understanding of digital applications - particularly digital wallet and cryptocurrency applications. While the Pi Network Whitepaper does a good job explaining the Why behind this endeavor, many people do not understand the ins and outs of cryptocurrency and do not know what to do with this mobile app once they download it and sign up.
It is important to understand that this is not "free money." This is a mobile application in development, still in Phase 1. And your primary contribution is simply helping the Developers secure the network by tapping the charging icon once every 24 hours.
Every 24 Hours, one Icon on the face of the application, must be tapped in order for you to continue "earning Pi."
But something magical happens on Day 3 if you've tapped that icon 3 times.
Welcome to the Contributor Experience! When you have tapped that Lightning Bolt icon 3 times, you pass a "gate" and unlock a new Role, The Contributor Role, on The Pi Network. And you are rewarded with this:
Thank you for being a Contributor.
"Earning Pi as a Contributor means tapping here as well. However, you also help secure the Pi Transaction history by setting up your Security Circle. In return, you're rewarded in Pi with a higher earning rate."
We are in the Distribution Phase of the Pi Network Roadmap. An invitation is still needed to join The Pi Network. I would be thrilled to help you sign up with my Invitation Code freqflyer and help you get started earning Pi. There is nothing to buy and no credit card or payment needed.
See you on Chat inside the App! - Val (freqflyer).
