Hello everyone and how is it going today? I hope you guys are doing well. And with everything that has gone thus far I hope you guys are hanging in there. Now I know I haven’t really updated you guys on Pi Network, but we will here in this post.
So if you guys remember my last post about an issue with my name on my Pi Network account and was not able to fix it which in turn would cause issue with me being able to KYC (know your customer) a form of identity verification. Meaning I could possibly lose all my Pi which I have been mining or getting Air drops of tokens since the project started would be gone. But so far the project looks like it will be a success even though at this moment it seem like things are taking a long time.
So, in my last post about Pi Network I was discussing the lack of support from the project in where I need to fix my name on my account because I believe that when I signed up I used my Facebook account which has my online username/handle. I didn’t get an answer for quite sometime. Recently at the end of November I had finally got an answer in a mass email from the Pi Network support ticket system. Nice to get an answer regardless on how long it took. Reason, I’m a little more understanding I sometimes don’t get things done right away either but I do my best to though. You can read the answer I got in the below quoted text from my support ticket email:
Lisa from Pi Network commented:
This is a mass email because you previously submitted a form through the Support Portal and checked the “Change Name” box. We apologize that we cannot address individual issues.
Changes to your account cannot be made via email, since we have no means to securely verify the request is coming from the genuine account holder.
We recognize that genuine Pioneers may have either made typos when first inputting their Pi account name or missed the 2-week name update window. Therefore, we are allowing Pioneers to appeal for an opportunity to make a correction to your name information and explain the reason for the appeal. However, name update appeals will only accept changes like minor changes to spelling, switching first name and last names, adding a middle name, adding a prefix/suffix or aligning it with the name displayed on your identity document.
A complete name change that has no resemblance to the current name and suggests two completely different people will be rejected.
Please note that appeals will take time to process, and they will be processed as a later part of our overall KYC process. The appeal feature will be available for the next few months. We appreciate your patience.
Here’s how to submit an appeal:
1. From the Pi home screen, tap on the ≡ icon in the upper left corner to open up the Pi sidebar menu.
2. Tap on “Profile.”
3. Below “Settings,” click the orange “See How” button next to “ask to change your name.”
4. Review your current inputted name and then tap “Appeal Name Change” in the bottom right corner.
5. From here, follow the in-app instructions. Please note the name on the ID has to match one of the two names, either in English or in the native language.
Note that if your name information is already correct, this information does not apply to you. Please do not submit an appeal. Thank you.

Now I have done just that above to hopefully fix my issue and have submitted a name appeal to fix my actual name. I think this might have been a issue for a lot of people just to have the feature added to the Pi Network mobile app account area. This means if you have this same issue. The above is kind of the way you can fix your name as well because any issues can mess up you being able to KYC once and if Pi Network hits mainnet which as long as I have been following the project I believe it will become a cryptocurrency/blockchain powered token soon.
Now with this being said I Rukun will follow all the way through with this project like I do for all things I test and in fact all staff who write about this subjects are going to be required to do the same thing as we don’t want to feed you any bullshit. Now like I said I have got an answer and submitted the fix for my name issue. Doesn’t means all issues are being solved right away. At the time of this post Pi Network app on Android, i.e Google Playstore has been from what I found to be temporary removed. You can read more about it here: https://e.vnexpress.net/news/business/economy/crypto-pi-app-disappears-from-google-play-store-4406225.html. So you can still download if from the main site and it will be back accord the link above. Now I still plan on running a node for the network. Just got to finish building some devices and what not. Here is a the possible current price or value of the token but still yet to be determined as still need to hit mainnet you see more here: https://coinstats.app/coins/pi-network-iou/. Also you can see and read more about what has been written about Pi Network by clicking/following Pi Network tag on Thoughts Of Everything here: https://www.thoughtsofeverything.org/tag/pi-network/.
Now if you would to get involved and test this project with me you can download from here: https://minepi.com/rukun1028 or from the app store for your device and because you will need a referral code use mine and I will reward you for your activity with advertising and what not. Now just enter “rukun1028” for your referral code.
