Blue Ocean Online System Review: FutureNet Power Matrix?
There is no information on the Blue Online System website indicating who owns or runs the business.
The Blue Ocean Online System website domain (“boos.business”) was registered on the 16th of September, with “Futurenet INC” listed as the owner. An address in the Marshall Islands, an offshore tax-haven, is also provided.
FutureNet Inc. first appeared on BehindMLM’s radar as part of the FutureNet opportunity.
FutureNet was a $1685 six-tier Ponzi cycler. Alexa statistics reveal the business is still chugging along, with Turkey, Khazakstan and Romania account for over 50% of traffic to the FutureNet domain.
Thors Albers of Falkito fame was the only name we were able to peg to FutureNet, however I wasn’t able to find anything linking him to Blue Ocean Online System.
A marketing video on the Blue Ocean Online System website was uploaded to the YouTube account “Stephan Morgenstern” on September 22nd.
Morgenstern was promoting FutureNet on his Facebook profile in November 2014, around the time it launched.
Recent marketing post to Morgenstern’s Facebook profile suggest Blue Ocean Online System is a new opportunity within FutureNet itself:
This suggests that FutureNet might be cash-strapped, hence the need to launch a new “Power Matrix” opportunity.
Morgenstern’s Facebook profile location is set to Berlin in Germany, which is likely where Blue Ocean Online System is being operated from. Morgenstern’s specific role within Blue Ocean Online System and FutureNet meanwhile remain unclear.
Read on for a full review of the Blue Ocean Online System MLM business opportunity.
The Blue Ocean Online System Product Line
Blue Ocean Online System has no retailable products or services, with affiliates only able to market Blue Ocean Online System affiliate membership itself.
Once signed up Blue Ocean Online System affiliates are able to then purchase $10 and $25 Power Matrix positions.
Bundled with these positions are access to a “Power Matrix video and sponsoring information system”, 50 GB storage in “the future cloud”, a “variety of e-learning offers”, video email sender, a “FutureNet fan page”, website templates and a hosting platform and advertising on the “FutureNet platform”.
The Blue Ocean Online System Compensation Plan
The Blue Ocean Online System compensation plan sees affiliates purchase $10 and $25 positions in a 3×10 matrix. They are then paid to recruit other afiliates who do the same.
A 3×10 matrix places an affiliate at the top of the matrix, with three positions directly under them:
These three positions are the first level of the matrix, with level 2 generated by splitting each of the three level 1 positions into another three positions each.
Level three of the matrix is generated by splitting level 2 positions into another three positions each, and so on and so forth down a total of ten levels (88,572 positions).
Matrix positions are filled via direct and indirect recruiting of affiliates, who each purchase a position.
Note that as matrix position fees are monthly recurring, so too are the commission payouts per position filled below.
$10 Power Matrix
The $10 Power Matrix pays out commissions as follows:
- level 1 – 50 cents per position filled (3 positions)
- level 2 – $2.50 per position filled (9 positions)
- level 3 – $1 per position filled (27 positions)
- levels 4 and 5 – 50 cents per position filled (324 positions)
- level 6 to 10 – 40 cents per position filled (88,209 positions)
$25 Power Matrix
The $25 Power Matrix pays out commissions as follows:
- level 1 – 50 cents per position filled (3 positions)
- levels 2 to 10 – $1 per position filled (88,569 positions)
Blue Ocean Online System affiliates are able to earn a matching bonus percentage on the matrix earnings of their personally recruited affiliates.
An advertised “up to 50%” match is available, with further specifics not provided.
According to the Blue Ocean Online System compensation plan material, once a year
the most succesful FutureNet members take off for a luxury vacation.
The material specifically mentions the $25 Power Matrix, suggesting qualification is not tied to filling the $10 Power Matrix.
Joining Blue Ocean Online System
Affiliate membership with Blue Ocean Online System is tied to the purchase of matrix positions.
A $10 Power Matrix position is $10 a month. A $25 Power Matrix position is $25 a month.
Participation in both matrices will cost a Blue Ocean Online System $35 a month.
Given the similarities between Blue Ocean Online System and that of FutureNet, Blue Ocean Online System would appear to be little more than an attempt to sustain interest in FutureNet.
It is likely that after almost a year recruitment in FutureNet has died down, so through Blue Ocean Online System the idea is to extract new funds from existing members.
Basically they’re launching another scheme, in the hopes it’ll replicate whatever initial interest there was in FutureNet.
Given that Blue Ocean Online System is a reload scheme, it’s likely heavily preloaded with position from management and existing FutureNet affiliates.
This pretty much ensures those who join Blue Ocean Online System but had nothing to do with FutureNet, will lose money.
As to the compensation plan itself, it’s a pretty straight forward matrix-based pyramid scheme.
Affiliates pay either $10, $25 or $35 a month (based on how much they want to earn, which is “pay to play”), and are then paid out of monthly fees subsequently recruited affiliates pay each month.
Then, as long as everyone keeps paying their monthly fees, commissions continue to be paid out.
The reality is that when recruitment dies down in Blue Ocean Online System, those at the bottom of the company-wide matrices will stop paying their monthly fees.
This means that those above them will stop getting paid each month, and if they can’t recruit new affiliates, it won’t be long before they too stop paying their fees.
Over time his effect slowly trickles up the Blue Ocean Online System company-wide affiliate genealogy, with an irreversible collapse triggered once it reaches the top tiers of the matrix.
At that point either a new scheme is launched, or those who didn’t manage to recruit enough people under them lose out.
