Pi Network Ads Cause Division Among Users on Social Media

While Pi ads will contribute to the network’s maintenance, there is disagreement about the feature among Pioneers in the DeFi space.

Pi Ads Cause Controversy

Pi Network ads recently caused unrest on social media, particularly on Twitter. Many Pioneers and crypto enthusiasts had numerous things to say about the protocol’s ads feature.

According to the Pi mobile application, users who turn on the ads feature contribute to the network’s server and maintenance costs. While it will benefit the mining protocol’s growth, users had conflicting ideas, with some calling for the protocol to disable ads and others in support. One Twitter user, Benjamin, urged users to keep the ads feature on.

Another Twitter user, Tom, called for Pi ads to be blocked. One primary reason for the negativity surrounding Pi ads is Pioneers' impatience. The Pi coin cannot be traded because it's still in an enclosed mainnet, and users need more patience to wait till it can be traded. Funding the protocol’s aspirations by viewing ads without making any profit has heightened Pioneers' impatience.

The CoFounder of BSC News, Ben Antes, highlighted users’ impatience on January 21 via Twitter. He stated that their inability to make money from Pi while they fund the protocol’s aspirations through viewing ads might make them impatient with the network. Users' DMs about selling their Pi coins at a cheap rate prompted Ben’s tweet.

With the controversies surrounding the feature, users have the license to turn it off or on through their mobile app settings. However, it is essential to note that Pi ads are necessary for the protocol’s stability in the long run.
