YEREVAN (CoinChapter.com) — Pi Network, the new star on the crypto block, is losing stream. After its native token, the Pi Coin rallied extensively to reach an all-time high of $330.65 last December, it is now on a steep decline. The platform’s new Open Source (PiOS) License program is not doing much to help either.
Pi Crypto lost an additional 16% on February 8, dragging the token’s price to the $50 mark from its daily high of $60. Over the past week alone, Pi Coin has lost nearly 30%, having held a value of $70.05 at the beginning of February.
However, the newcomer altcoin has lost far more than that. When 2023 kicked in on January 1, Pi Network was valued at around $250. It has since lost 80% of its value year to date (YTD).
Pi Network presents itself as an inclusive cryptocurrency project allowing users to mine Pi Coin using their smartphones. Over the years, the community has grown thanks to its technology that lets everyone take part even if they have limited knowledge of cryptos.
Although Pi is still undergoing the Enclosed Network period of Mainnet, several platforms have allegedly listed it to make money. The developers have issued a statement warning the community to be careful of such “unauthorized third party exchanges”.
