Once a year OneCoin management front the company’s affiliate-base and try to keep them interested in the business.
It’s not an easy task, and last year was held in London against a backdrop of broken promises (going public and lying about having already signed up hundreds of thousands of merchants).

I say was, because apparently Chinese authorities have now been instructed to make sure the event does’t go ahead. [Continue reading…]
