Looking for quick ways to resolve your PI KYC verification issues?
Perhaps you keep getting this error, ‘KYC slot unavailable’ each time you try to verify your PI KYC and you need to resolve this problem immediately?
And if you have applied and submitted your application for Pi KYC and are yet to receive a confirmed notification that your application was successful, then this update is for you.
A lot of pioneers have been reaching out to me for assistance to pass PI KYC after reading my article on how to apply for KYC verification; some claimed to have submitted their application over 5 months ago. Pioneers are sadly going through a hard time verifying their KYC successfully. This we cannot ignore.
Since the Core Team’s ultimate objective is to foster a vibrant Pi ecosystem by providing reliable and safe-proof onboarding to ensure the intrinsic quality of the network, KYC is one of the essential ingredients to achieve this overall goal.
So, if your application is stuck for weeks or months, there is good news for you. This article is focused on helping people whose Pi KYC verifications are taking too long to find solutions.
Pi KYC Verification Solutions
In a recent update released in the early weeks of December 2022, the PI Core Team revealed that they are doing everything they can to scale KYC as soon as possible. Some of the major progress the team has achieved are:
The PI team has improved the efficiency of the KYC app infrastructure; thus, pioneers can expect more completed applications as the loading time of each screen has reduced.
The team has also created technical processes to analyze the KYC funnel and why some applications are stuck in the funnel. It is currently designing a solution to unblock this issue.
Deployed several more features to support the KYC solution, such as a custom camera feature for older devices and OS and user experience.
Improving their ability to process pioneers’ name change appeals, has delayed some pioneers from successfully passing KYC.
Pi pioneers whose KYC applications have been stuck for months would start seeing their results in no time.
Nevertheless, for more specific issues, you can check the bullet points below for updates on your applications.
- PI KYC Verification Process is Taking so Long
If you fall under this category and you are not in the regions where they practice special Tentative KYC, then know that the Core Team is working on unblocking 56% of the pioneers with stuck KYC application.
So, if your application is stuck due to an ID issue, perhaps you used NIN, then your application may be one of the applications the team will unblock soon.
- I appealed to change my account Name
For pioneers who appealed to change their account name and are stuck in the KYC process because their name appeals can’t be resolved by machine automation, KYC human validators will be able to resolve and unblock them in the KYC process.
- Rejected Applications
Pioneers whose applications for KYC were rejected would be able to appeal for resubmissions. Thus, pioneers who applied with unrecognized IDs, such as NIN and rejected applications can submit an appeal form to provide additional information for another chance for reconsideration once this feature is deployed.
The Bottom Line
The PI Core Team is making significant progress to improve the safety of the KYC app and expand the KYC application to as many pioneers in different regions as possible; the ideal thing for PI pioneers whose verifications are still pending or stuck in the KYC funnel to do is to be patient.
This also includes those whose applications for pi KYC were rejected. The core team is working really hard to rectify these issues.
