We have added a #DEFI use case to our development roadmap. The development team is evaluating an implementation of Chainlink with the Paichain.info API.
Some PAI Community members recently reported that despite having a high number of referrals, the amount of referral earnings they have is showing up as zero. The core contributing engineers discovered that there’s an issue in which the number of PAI Coin are being calculated and displayed, and are currently testing and deploying a solution. The Project PAI contributors thank all the PAI Community members for their feedback.
Reminder: If you need to access your PAI Up Wallet across multiple devices, the PAI Up Web Wallet is another way to do so. You can send, receive, and manage your PAI Coin securely from all major web browsers. Access your wallet on now at wallet.paiup.com
