Private Instant Verified Transaction, PIVX, is a privacy-focused decentralized open source cryptocurrency launched in Feb 1 2016 under the name of Darknet (DNET), before it was professionally re-branded to PIVX. The initial Proof of Work (PoW) distribution phase ended August 2016 when DNET transitioned to the current Proof of Stake (PoS) phase.
PIVX runs on Blackcoin PoS 2.0 protocol and is based on Bitcoin core 0.10.x code base. It utilizes a network of masternodes for an openly visible decentralized governance and increased transaction privacy.
The main goal of PIVX is to achieve near instant private transactions and a governance that helps sustain the network for the benefit of all of the users involved.

PIVX (CRYPTO:PIVX) is yes, a technology, however with that, it's also much more that just bits of code and elaborate algorithms. It's a community. It's an organically growing network of individuals assembling a set of core principals, beliefs, visions, and ideas, collaborating together to develop PIVX. We are, at the end of the day, a collective of human beings coming together, inputting our various energies, resources, talents, and visions. Some of us are phenomenal coders. Others are expert project managers. Some are new to crypto, while others have been at crypto since the dawning of bitcoin (including the individual involved in the historical "bitcoin pizza" transaction). That said, there are a few folks who were at the core of the project, and from that, the community rapidly grew. As a reminder, often in tech and crypto realms, individuals are known by their "handles" (think nicknames) more than their own names.
