Coin Place Review: Three-tier cryptocurrency Ponzi ROI plans
Coin Place provide no information on their website about who owns or runs the business.
A corporate address in the ACT, Australia is provided. This corresponds with an office block, however there’s no evidence of Coin Place operating from the location.
The Coin Place website domain (“coinplace.trade”) was privately registered on September 27th, 2017.
Alexa estimate that Japan (38%) and Russia (13%) are currently the two largest sources of traffic to the Coin Place website.
These percentages are high enough to suggest that whoever is running Coin Place is likely based out of one of these countries.
Of the two I’d go with Russia. Supporting this is the Coin Place website defaulting to Russian and presence of an active VKontakte social media profile, again in Russian.
Perusal of the official Coin Place Facebook group (which has no listed admins), also reveals most members have Russian names.
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.
Coin Place Products
Coin Place has no retailable products or services, with affiliates only able to market Coin Place affiliate membership itself.
The Coin Place Compensation Plan
Coin Place affiliates invest cryptocurrency on the promise of advertised returns:
- Starter – invest $10 to $500 and receive a 110% ROI after 15 days
- Medium – invest $25 to $10,000 and receive a 6% daily ROI for 20 days (120%)
- Investor – invest $50 to $10,000 and receive a 5% daily ROI for 30 days (150%)
Referral commissions are available on funds invested by downline affiliates, paid out down three levels of recruitment (unilevel):
- level 1 (personally recruited affiliates) – 8%
- level 2 – 3%
- level 3 – 1%
Joining Coin Place
Coin Place affiliate membership is free.
Full participation in the Coin Place income opportunity is tied to a minimum $10 investment.
The ruse behind Coin Place’s ROI revenue is “trading on cryptocurrency exchanges.”
Our traders benefit from the cryptocurrency volatility, which means they calculate the upcoming rate fluctuations.
For example, they exchange their funds to bitcoins when the exchange rate is low, and then withdraw their money back when the bitcoin rate is at its highest possible mark for the current period of time.
In addition to there being no evidence of trading take place or tied to Coin Place affiliate ROI revenue, this assertion also fails the Ponzi logic test.
Coin Place represent that they already have a trading system in place. Why then do they need to solicit funds from randoms over the internet?
A 150% ROI every 30 days translates into 1825% annually. With compounding that rate increases even more.
If the anonymous admin(s) running Coin Place were able to legitimately and consistently generate that much of a return, they’d keep it to themselves and invest their own money.
The reality is that new affiliate investment is the only verifiable source of revenue entering Coin Place.
The use of newly invested funds to pay off existing investors makes Coin Place a Ponzi scheme.
As with all Ponzi schemes, once affiliate recruitment slows down so too will newly invested funds.
This will see Coin Place unable to meet its ROI obligations, eventually prompting a collapse.
The math behind Ponzi schemes guarantees that the majority of investors lose money.
