Double Triangle Matrix Review: Recruit in 21 days or else…
There is no information on the Double Triangle Matrix website indicating who owns or runs the business.
The Double Triangle Matrix website domain (“doubletrianglematrix.org”) was registered on the 29th of April 2015, with “Vladimir Stojanovic” of “Global Profit system LTD” listed as the owner.
An address in London, UK is also provided, however further research reveals this belongs to a mail forwarding service.
As such it appears Double Triangle Matrix has no physical presence in the UK.
The default country for new signups for Double Triangle Matrix is Croatia.
The default language for the Double Triangle Matrix website is Croatian, as are all the posts made to the official Double Triangle Matrix Facebook page.
This strongly suggests that Stojanovic is likely operating Double Triangle Matrix out of Croatia itself, or failing that somewhere in Europe.
Possibly due to language-barriers, I was unable to put together Stojanovic’s MLM history.
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.
The Double Triangle Matrix Product Line
Double Triangle Matrix has no retailable products or services, with affiliates only able to market Double Triangle Matrix affiliate membership itself.
Bundled with Double Triangle Matrix affiliate membership is access to an eBook and audio library.
The Double Triangle Matrix
The Double Triangle Matrix compensation plan sees affiliates purchase a position in a “Standard Matrix”, which in turn feeds into a “premium” matrix.
Both appear to be 2×9 matrices.
A 2×9 matrix places an affiliate at the top of a matrix, with two positions directly under them:
These first two positions form the first level of the matrix, with the second level generated by splitting each of the first two positions into another two positions each.
Thus the second level of the matrix has four positions in total.
The third level is generated by splitting the second level positions into another two positions each (eight positions), with each subsequent level generated in the same manner.
In total, a 2×9 matrix has 1022 positions.
A Double Triangle Matrix purchases a position in the Standard Matrix for $25. They then have 21 days to recruit new affiliates, otherwise they lose this position.
Double Triangle Matrix sell filled positions for $25 ($50 to qualify), which are purportedly affiliates recruited by other affiliates (in excess of their required two).
The sale of these $25 positions is claimed to go to the affiliate’s selling their excess recruits.
If two new affiliates are recruited within 21 days, a Double Triangle Matrix affiliate is then paid $2 per position filled in their matrix.
Positions in the Standard Matrix are filled via the direct and indirect recruitment of new affiliates.
Once an affiliate has filled the fourth level of their Standard Matrix, $42 is deducted from their commission payout and they are entered into a Premium Matrix.
The Standard Matrix meanwhile continues to fill and pay out as normal.
The Premium Matrix operates in the same manner as the Standard Matrix, with positions filled as affiliates fill the first four levels of their Standard Matrix.
The commission payout per position filled in a Premium Matrix is $4.
Once all nine levels of either a Standard or Premium Matrix are filled, the position terminates.
If a Double Triangle Matrix wishes to continue earning, a new Standard Matrix position for $25 must be purchased.
Joining Double Triangle Matrix
Double Triangle Matrix do offer free membership, but its purpose is unclear.
As per the Double Triangle Matrix FAQ:
How do I can join?
A.) Very simple. You only need to buy the Standard package and that is the way how to enter into the profit distribution system.
A “Standard package” costs $25 and creates one position in the Standard Matrix.
Double Triangle Matrix utilizes the old ebook library business model, which is combined with a chain-recruitment pyramid scheme.
The “recruit within 21 days or else” twist is interesting, punishing those who fail to market the scheme to new victims.
I suppose the idea is to emphasize the importance of new recruits (no new $25 payments entering the system = no commissions).
Effectively either affiliates are going to pony up $50 to qualify, lose $25 by not qualifying or put their reputation and credibility on the line by promoting a pyramid scheme.
And for what, the promise to make $2 to $4 a pop per recruit?
That’s a cheap ass price to sell your reputation and credibility out for.
As with all chain-recruitment pyramid schemes, once recruitment slows down so too will Double Triangle Matrix commission payouts.
Eventually recruitment will have slowed down such that the matrix commissions stall (both, seeing as the Premium Matrix relies on position in the Standard Matrix being filled), with Double Triangle Matrix then collapsing altogether.
At this point anyone who hasn’t filled enough positions to recoup their $25 position purchase loses out, with Stojanovic making off with trapped funds.
