Falcon Coin Review: 180 day ROI “trading bot” ICO lending Ponzi
Falcon Coin provide no information on their website about who owns or runs the business.
The Falcoin Coin website domain (“falconcoin.co”) was privately registered on October 7th, 2017.
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.

Full participation in the Falcon Coin MLM opportunity requires a minimum $1 investment.
Falcon Coin presents itself as yet another ICO lending Ponzi scheme.
Falcon Coin claim to generate ROI revenue through a “trading bot and volatility software”, however no evidence of either is provided.
Despite this, Falcon Coin represent to affiliate investors that ROIs of more than 300% every 180 days will be paid out.
As it stands the only verifiable source of revenue entering Falcon Coin is new affiliate investment, the use of which to pay affiliates a 180 day ROI makes it a Ponzi scheme.
Lending ICO Ponzis like Falcon Coin play out as follows:
Admins (who are typically anonymous) offload worthless pre-generated points in exchange for real money. In this case it’s FFC points.
The admins then use some of this money to pay promised ROIs for as long as new affiliates sign up.
Once affiliate recruitment dries up so does the ROI reserve.
When a predetermined threshold is reached, the anonymous Falcon Coin admins pull a runner with what’s left.
Early Falcon Coin investors make a bit of money (mostly via recruitment of new investors). But same as any other Ponzi scheme, the reality of such scams is that the majority of participants eventually lose money.
Update March 5th 2018 – As of March 4th Falcon Coin has collapsed. The company website has been taken offline.
As expected, those who recruited Falcon Coin investors made a bit of money and everyone else lost out.
