Despite the use of “hodl” verbiage and cryptocurrency for payment, Hodl Game is just another MLM cycler Ponzi scheme.

Hodl Game affiliates buy in, with subsequent investment used to pay a ROI at each cycler tier.

The use of newly invested funds to pay existing investors makes Hodl Game a Ponzi scheme.

What happens on the backend of a Ponzi cycler is over time each tier becomes stuffed with phantom positions. These are generated through “re-entry” and are problematic because they suck money out of the system without providing any new money in.

As time goes on ROI payout times blow out, getting even worse when recruitment inevitably stalls.

As per the Hodl Game FAQ;

It’s Crypto and that’s the beautiy of it all, no chargebacks.

If you cannot afford to lose your initial outlay, do not join.

As more and more cycler tiers stall, eventually the entire scheme collapses.

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