The idea and vision behind the development of Pi Network

Hello fellow Pioneers!

I just want to share with you my brief interview with Vince McPhillip, one of the founders of the Pi Network. At the time I was still trying to fully grasp the idea behind the Pi Network project.

In the early days of the Pi Network, I had the rare chance to talk to Vince when I submitted my project proposal to start the Pi Social Project with the goal to advance the agenda of Pi Network. The Pi Social Project was aimed at bringing the Pi Network to the heart of every culture, globally – stemming from our belief that Pi Network is much more than just a currency. Because early on we saw the Pi Network as a vital tool in resetting the imbalance of the word’s current financial systems.

Below is an excerpt of the abovementioned interview:

[2:42 PM]

Bonafide: Vince, tell me, what’s the idea behind Pi Network project? What is the motivation, driving force why the Core Team developed the Pi Network?

Vince: (referred to https://thepolitic.org/vincent-mcphillip-yc-10-head-of-community-at-pi-network/)

Bonafide: Vince follow-up question, why did the team use the Pi name and symbol?

Vince: We thought it represented the values of the movement we wanted to create.

Pi is infinite. A reflection of the deep potential each person brings to the network.

Pi contains all numbers and permutations of numbers making it all inclusive. Reflecting the fact that Pi Network had a place for everyone.

Pi is circular which reflects the way in which we come together to secure and build the network. It’s also a mathematical constant which reflects stability.

Bonafide: Thanks, Vince.

Vince: We are building more than a currency here.

Bonafide: That’s what I want to know, the “more than,” because to me I thought this idea of Pi is to replace fiat; it’s ambitious but it’s doable.

Vince: We will be sharing more of our vision and mission for Pi in the upcoming weeks. We also want the community’s input to gauge why YOU believe in Pi.

I admire of what Mr. Vince said that Pi is more than a currency. It's not just about money. It's all about us, the people. Our contributions on the Pi network is important. It will serves as a fuel for it to keep going.

I believe in Pi just because of the shear amount of people that's gotten involved.I mean 30 Million people already, tell me what other crypto has ever had that many followers before it even makes it to Main Net. Just remarkable I say.

I believe because PI was built not after value but a big network.. later everything is digital, we can't avoid this need. I saw a video when President Jokowi of Indonesia was specially invited by the founder of Facebook. He sees the future... what we are doing now is still in the early stages.
