Artistic Universal Review: ARTC bagholder dump scheme
Artistic Universal provides no information on their website about who owns or runs the company.
Artistic Universal’s website domain (“artisticuniversal.com”), was privately registered on October 3rd, 2021.
Artistic Universal claims it’s a “New Zealand based advanced program”.
We’re not sure what an “advanced program” is, but there’s no evidence to support Artistic Universal’s claimed ties to New Zealand.
As always, if an MLM company is not openly upfront about who is running or owns it, think long and hard about joining and/or handing over any money.
Artistic Universal’s Products
Artistic Universal has no retailable products or services.
Affiliates are only able to market Artistic Universal affiliate membership itself.
Artistic Universal’s Compensation Plan
Artistic Universal affiliates invest tether (USDT), on the promise of a 500% ROI (Pool Bonus below).
- Dreamer – $20
- Iron – $50
- Bronze – $120
- Silver – $240
- Gold – $460
- Diamond – $1100
- Platinum – $2500
- Challanger (sic) – $4800
- Master – $7500
- Grand Master – $10,000
Returns are paid in Artistic Coin (ARTC), a BEP-20 token created by Artistic Universal.
The MLM side of Artistic Universal pays on recruitment of affiliate investors.
Although not explicitly clarified, I believe all Artistic Universal commissions and bonuses are paid in ARTC.
A unilevel compensation structure places an affiliate at the top of a unilevel team, with every personally recruited affiliate placed directly under them (level 1):
If any level 1 affiliates recruit new affiliates, they are placed on level 2 of the original affiliate’s unilevel team.
If any level 2 affiliates recruit new affiliates, they are placed on level 3 and so on and so forth down a theoretical infinite number of levels.
Artistic Universal caps payable unilevel team levels at ten.
Referral commissions are paid as a percentage of tether invested across these ten levels as follows:
- level 1 (personally recruited affiliates) – 15%
- level 2 – 7%
- level 3 – 5%
- levels 4 and 5 – 4%
- levels 6 to 10 – 3%
Artistic Universal takes 50% of USDT invested and uses it to calculate a Pool Bonus.
The Pool Bonus is an a 500% ROI passive investment scheme.
- invest at the $20 Dreamer tier and receive $100
- invest at the $50 Iron tier and receive $250
- invest at the $120 Bronze tier and receive $600
- invest at the $240 Silver tier and receive $1200
- invest at the $460 Gold tier and receive $2300
- invest at the $1100 Diamond tier and receive $5500
- invest at the $2500 Platinum tier and receive $12,500
- invest at the $4800 Challanger (sic) tier and receive $24,000
- invest at the $7500 Master tier and receive $37,500
- invest at the $10,000 Grand Master tier and receive $50,000
Artistic Universal withholds an undisclosed amount from the Pool Bonus.
This amount is redistributed to Platinum, Challanger (sic), Master and Grand Master investment tier affiliates via “artificial intelligence”.
From the diagram above, this appears to be through an equal share in four 25% smaller pools.
Staking appears to be an additional passive investment opportunity within Artistic Universal.
- invest $100 to $500 and receive 5% after 12 months
- invest $600 to $2000 and receive 7% after 12 months
- invest $2500 to $7000 and receive 9% after 12 months
- invest $9000 or more and receive 11% after 12 months
Note that although the amounts above are quoted in USD, Artistic Universal don’t specify what currency investment and returns are paid in.
If I had to guess it’d be tether in and ARTC out.
Joining Artistic Universal
Artistic Universal affiliate membership is tied to a $20 to $10,000 investment in tether (USDT).
Upon earning a 500% passive return, reinvestment is required to continue earning.
Artistic Universal Conclusion
As far as I can tell Artistic Universal is an ARTC bagholder dump scheme.
ARTC launched on or around September 2021.
ARTISTIC COIN LISTED ON MANY CRYPTO EXCHANGES LIKE PANCAKESWAP, POOCOIN, COINMARKETCAP, WAZIRX, VINDAX, ETC.
ARTISTIC COIN WORKS WITH BINANCE BLOCKCHAIN IN BEP20 TOKEN.
I imagine whoever’s running Artistic Universal bought heavily into the shitcoin, which to date hasn’t gone anywhere (it’s a pointless shitcoin).
Cue the launch of Artistic Universal, through which the admin hopes to dump their ARTC bags onto greedy investors.
Said investors are lured into Artistic Universal on the promise of a 500% ROI, paid in worthless ARTC.
Meanwhile Artistic Universal’s admin collects tether, which they go and cash out.
Based on Artistic Universal’s poor spelling and grammar, whoever is running it likely from a non-English speaking country.
India is a good candidate, as a lot of the company’s marketing is targeted at a Hindi-speaking audience.
In any event, between the ARTC investment scheme and pyramid recruitment, the only source of revenue entering Artistic Universal is new investment.
This is tied to affiliate recruitment. When it inevitably dries up, Artistic Universal will collapse.
The math behind MLM Ponzi schemes guarantees that when they collapse, the majority of participants lose money.
