Golden Way provides no information on its website about who owns or runs the company.

Golden Way’s website domain (“goldenway.world”), was privately registered on June 6th, 2021.

In an attempt to appear legitimate, Golden Way provides incorporation documents for Dubai:

Dubai is a scam-friendly jurisdiction that provides a lawless haven for scammers.

Any MLM company hinging its legitimacy on ties to Dubai is an immediate red flag.

One interesting thing to note is, despite Golden Way’s current website domain being only seven months old, the company originally launched back in 2019.

The first video uploaded to Golden Way’s YouTube channel is an office opening in Dubai.

The video appears to feature actors. The woman represented to be running Golden Way speaks Russian.

Golden Way has long gotten rid of the original actors it hired to front the company. Today different actors are used to represent Golden Way spokespeople:

As opposed to Dubai, Golden Way’s official FaceBook page is managed from Ukraine:

Once again we have a faceless MLM company run by eastern Europeans pretending to be in Dubai.

At time of publication Alexa ranks top sources of traffic to Golden Way’s website as Saudi Arabia (44%), Algeria (30%) and Egypt (3%).

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.

Personally recruited investment volume is investment from personally recruited affiliates.

Downline investment volume is funds invested by your total downline (direclty and indirectly recruited affiliates).

Recruitment Commissions

Golden Way affiliates earn 5% of funds invested by personally recruited affiliates.

Residual Commissions

Golden Way pays residual commissions via a unilevel compensation structrue.

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.

Commissions on funds invested across the unilevel team are based on rank:

  • Partner – 10%
  • Manager – 10.5%
  • Gold Manager – 11%
  • Mentor – 11.5%
  • Gold Mentor – 12%
  • Master – 12.5%
  • Gold Master – 13%
  • Director – 13.5%
  • Bronze Director – 14%
  • Silver Director – 14.5%
  • Gold Director – 15%
  • Platinum Director – 15.5%
  • Topaz Director – 16%
  • Sapphire Director – 16.5%
  • Ruby Director – 17%
  • Emerald Director – 17.5%
  • Black Diamond Director – 18%
  • Diamond Director – 18.5%
  • King Diamond – 19%

Residual commissions come into play by way of 19% being paid out on every investment.

This sees higher ranked affiliates paid the difference between their ranked residual commission rate and lesser ranked affiliates in their unilevel team.

E.g. a Master recruits someone who invests €1000 EUR.

The Master is paid their 12.5%, leaving 6.5% to pay out.

The system searches upline for a Gold Master or higher to pay the remaining percentage out to.

If a Sapphire Director was found first, they’d receive 4% (the difference between 16.5% and 12.5%), still leaving 2.5% to pay out.

The system would continue to search upline for either a Ruby Director or higher.

This continues until a King Diamond is found, at which point whatever is then left to pay out is paid out.

Note that nothing is ever passed up from King Diamond affiliates.

Golden Way Conclusion

Golden Way represents its affiliates are investing in gold. To that end the company purports to sell gold on its website:

This has nothing to do with the MLM side of the business. It’s simply a ruse to mask new investment being used to pay existing Golden Way investors.

For starters, investing in gold doesn’t generate a consistent 530.4% annual ROI.

Golden Way don’t provide any explanation for the returns offered.

Even if they did, this brings us back to the meaningless Dubai documents. Golden Way fails to provide audited financial reports detailing any external revenue generation.

This is because there isn’t any.

Furthermore, Golden Way is not registered to offer securities in any of its primary investment markets.

Boris CEOs, Dubai and Ukrainian scammers – the Ponzi trifecta.

The only impact the gold ruse has on Golden Way’s Ponzi scheme is an excuse to charge affiliates a 20% withdrawal fee. This is in lieu of taking an imaginary gold delivery.

Such to the extent Golden Way might be pressed on this, they’d no doubt buy gold with what they’d have to pay out anyway. Everything, including delivery,  would then be billed to the withdrawing affiliate.

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

This will starve Golden Way of ROI revenue, eventually prompting a collapse.

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