Crypto Arbitrage Team fails to provide executive or ownership information on its website.

Crypto Arbitrage Team currently operates from the domain “mycat-team.com”, privately registered on October 22nd, 2022.

As of December 2022, SimilarWeb tracked negligible traffic to Crypto Arbitrage Team’s website.

The original incarnation of Crypto Arbitrage Team operated from “mycat.team”, privately registered on August 8th, 2022.

Based on official marketing videos on Crypto Arbitrage Team’s YouTube channel (example right), the original launch was on or around August 28th.

The reason Crypto Arbitrage Team changed domains appears to be a Bank of Russia pyramid fraud warning, issued on October 21st, 2022.

Twenty-four hours after CBR’s fraud warning was made public, Crypto Arbitrage Team registered its current domain.

To hide who’s behind Crypto Arbitrage Team, the company represents it is headed up by a CEO wearing a cat mask.

The person behind the mask has a digitally modified voice. I can’t quite place the accent but it’s definitely European.

Two actual people we can tie to Crypto Arbitrage Team are Luiza Ave and Ashok Sharma.

Ave is based out of Dubai and cites herself as the founder of Almalakia Capital Investment.

No idea what Almalakia Capital Investment is, but I couldn’t help but notice Ave claims to have obtained a Masters degree from Lomonosov Moscow State University.

In Crypto Arbitrage Team marketing videos, Ave is cited as as a “Global CAT Representative”.

Ashok Sharma is a Mumbai, India based serial promoter of crypto Ponzi schemes.

Recent MLM Ponzi schemes Sharma promoted include FVP Trade, LIQRCoin and Forsage.

FVP Trade was a Russian Boris CEO Ponzi scheme. The scam collapsed in July 2022.

Between the CBR fraud warning, a Boris CEO in a cat mask, Luiza Ave and Ashok Sharma, we have red flag ties to Dubai and Russia.

Russians are behind the vast majority of Boris CEO Ponzi schemes. A Boris CEO is an actor hired to mask the true operators of scams.

Dubai, equally notorious as Russia, is the MLM crime capital of the world.

BehindMLM’s guidelines for Dubai are:

  1. If someone lives in Dubai and approaches you about an MLM opportunity, they’re trying to scam you.
  2. If an MLM company is based out of or represents it has ties to Dubai, it’s a scam.

Crypto Arbitrage Team’s Products

Crypto Arbitrage Team has no retailable products or services.

Affiliates are only able to market Crypto Arbitrage Team affiliate membership itself.

Crypto Arbitrage Team’s Compensation Plan

Crypto Arbitrage Team affiliates invest Binance Coin (BNB). This is done on the promise of a 2% to 5% daily ROI.

  • invest 0.1 BNB to 1.9 BNB and receive 2% a day
  • invest 2 BNB to 29 BNB and receive 3% a day
  • invest 30 BNB to 79 BNB and receive 4% a day
  • invest 80 BNB or more and receive 5% a day

Crypto Arbitrage Team pays referral commissions on invested BNB via a unilevel compensation structure.

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.

Crypto Arbitrage Team caps payable unilevel team levels at ten.

Referral commissions are paid as a percentage of funds invested across these ten levels as follows:

  • level 1 (personally recruited affiliates) – 12%
  • level 2 – 8%
  • level 3 – 6%
  • level 4 – 4%
  • levels 5 and 6 – 2%
  • levels 7 and 8 – 1%
  • levels 9 and 10 – 0.5%

Joining Crypto Arbitrage Team

Crypto Arbitrage Team affiliate membership is free.

Full participation in the attached income opportunity requires a minimum 0.1 BNB investment.

Crypto Arbitrage Team Conclusion

Crypto Arbitrage Team represents it generates external revenue via “crypto arbitrage”.

The CAT team takes part in crypto arbitrage, targeting BRICS regions with 8-10% daily yield.

No evidence of Crypto Arbitrage Team generating revenue via arbitrage is provided. Ditto any other source of external revenue.

Furthermore, Crypto Arbitrage Team’s business model fails the Ponzi logic test.

Crypto Arbitrage Team pitches an annual return of up to 1825%.

Nobody capable of generating that legitimately on a consistent basis is wasting their time with cat mask Boris CEO scams. They simply don’t need your money.

As it stands, the only verifiable source of revenue entering Crypto Arbitrage Team is new investment.

Using newly invested BNB to pay existing investor withdrawals makes Crypto Arbitrage Team a Ponzi scheme.

I’m tempted to say the same scammers behind FVP Trade are behind Crypto Arbitrage Team. I haven’t been able to confirm this though so I’ll leave it as speculation.

As with all MLM Ponzi schemes, once affiliate recruitment dries up so too will new investment.

This will starve Crypto Arbitrage Team of ROI revenue, eventually prompting a collapse.

The math behind MLM Ponzi schemes guarantees that when they collapse, the majority of participants lose money.

 

Update 28th January 2023 – Crypto Arbitrage Team has collapsed.
