ABOUT DEVELOPER AMBASSADOR PROGRAM
How does it work?
You may invite others to become New Pioneers by sharing your Referral Code with them. If a New Pioneer satisfies all the criteria to be considered a Qualified Referee, then you will be eligible to receive Ambassador Rewards for the completion by the Qualified Referee of the following activity on or before the Program End Date:
- Tier 1 – Listing in the Company Unverified Mainnet Ecosystem of the Developer Application for a period of not less than thirty (30) continuous calendar days.
For each tier identified above (each referred to individually herein as a “Tier” and collectively as “Tiers” if applicable) for which all criteria is satisfied and therefore completed by a Qualified Referee on or before the Program End Date, the Ambassador shall receive payment of the applicable Ambassador Reward (as described in the link provided in the above definition) within ninety (90) days of the completion of such Tier. You shall receive payment of any such Ambassador Rewards due and payable to you by direct deposit from the Company into the in-app Pi balance associated with your Company account. All Ambassador Awards are subject to a twelve (12) month lock-up period from the date they are distributed to the Ambassador.
For you to be considered eligible for Ambassador Rewards, the Qualified Referee must use your Referral Code when registering as a New Pioneer during the Program Term. If your Referral Code is not used by a Referee when they register as a New Pioneer, or they register after the Program End Date, you will not be eligible for Ambassador Rewards.
Each Tier of the Ambassador Award for each Qualified Referee is only available for the Qualified Referee’s first Developer Application that completes any one of the Tiers, regardless of the number of Developer Applications the Qualified Referee may build on the Company Platform.
Furthermore, you will only be eligible for Ambassador Rewards if you satisfy all eligibility criteria for the Program. If you do not satisfy all eligibility criteria, you will not be eligible for Ambassador Rewards pursuant to this program regardless of whether a Qualified Referee completes the Tier.
During the Program Term, you may share your Referral Code with as many individuals as you like, and it may be shared via whatever means you prefer (i.e. e-mail, social media, etc.); provided, however, you must adhere to the policies, terms and conditions of the delivery mechanism or platform used to share the Referral Code. Once a Referee receives your Referee Code, they should proceed to the Pi Network mobile application to register with the Company as a New Pioneer. During their registration, they will need to use your Referral Code for you to be eligible for Ambassador Rewards. Following registration as a New Pioneer, they need to then register as a Developer on the Company Developer Portal, and register a Developer Application for development on the Company Platform within thirty (30) days of their New Pioneer registration to be considered a Qualified Referee. If a Referee becomes a Qualified Referee during the Program Term, and you are eligible pursuant to the terms of this Program, then you will be eligible to receive Ambassador Rewards upon the Qualified Referee’s completion of the Tier.
In the event that the Referee receives a Referral Code from more than one person, the Referral Code used during the Referee’s registration as a New Pioneer shall be determinative as to whom the Referee is attributable, and to whom Ambassador Rewards, if any, shall be payable.
The Company, in its sole and absolute discretion, may, at any time or from time to time, publish changes to these Terms. In such cases, the Terms as updated, changed or modified shall apply. In the event of a discrepancy between the provision of these Terms and any updated Terms, the then prevailing and updated, changed or modified Terms shall govern this Program.
