OneDollarExplosion Review: $1 cash gifting with cycler
There is no information on the OneDollarExplosion website indicating who owns or runs the business.
The OneDollarExplosion website domain (“onedollarexplosion.com”) was registered on the 14th of January and lists a “Keno” as the domain owner. An address in Kingston, Jamaica is also provided.
Other domains registered with the same email address as that of OneDollarExplosion include “ten2millions.com” and “unlimited100.com”.
Ten2Millions is/was a matrix-based pyramid scheme, where affiliates purchase positions for $15 and are then paid to recruit others who do the same.
The domain Unlimited100 is now defunct but going by the name, presumably it was a similar sort of scheme.
Read on for a full review of the OneDollarExplosion MLM business opportunity.
The OneDollarExplosion Product Line
OneDollarExplosion has no retailable products or services, with affiliates only able market affiliate membership to the company itself.
The OneDollarExplosion Compensation Plan
The OneDollarExplosion compensation plan sees affiliates purchase matrix positions, and get paid when others are recruited who do the same.
There are two matrix systems in play in OneDollarExplosion, a 2×9 matrix and a series of 2×2 matrices grouped together as a cycler.
A 2×9 matrix places an affiliate at the top of a matrix, with two positions directly under them (level 1):
These two positions branch out into another two positions each, forming level 2 of the matrix. Those postions also branch out into another two positions each, forming the third level.
In this manner, all nine levels of the matrix are generated. Positions in the matrix are filled via affiliates purchasing positions.
It costs $1 to purchase a position in the matrix, which has two positions to fill.
- level 2 (4 positions) costs $2 and pays out $8
- level 3 (8 positions) costs $5 and pays out $40
- level 4 (16 positions) costs $20 and pays out $320
- level 5 (32 positions) costs $120 and pays out $3840
- level 6 (64 positions) costs $500 and pays out $32,000
Levels 7 to 9 are not explained in the OneDollarExplosion compensation plan material.
Note that the above amounts are payable only when each level of the matrix is filled. The costs of each level serve as a qualification fee, with an affiliate unable to receive payments from other members on a level they have no qualified (paid in) at.
2×2 Matrix Cyclers
A 2×2 matrix has two positions on level 1 and two positions on level 2:
OneDollarExplosion offer affiliates a three-tier matrix cycler, with positions in the first tier costing $20.
Once all six positions in this first matrix are filled, OneDollarExplosion pay out $40.
The affiliate is also provided a new position in the first matrix tier and entry into the second-tier.
The second tier matrix pays out $400 when full, and once again provides re-entry into a second-tier matix and entry into the third-tier
The third-tier matrix pays out $900 and re-enters an affiliate back into a new third-tier matrix.
Affiliate membership with OneDollarExplosion is free, however an affiliate must spend at least $648 (the full cost of nine levels is not provided) to participate in the 2×9 matrix.
Positions in the matrix cyclers initially cost $20, however participation appears to be optional.
Thus the minimum cost of OneDollarExplosion affiliate membership is, as the name suggests, $1 (one 2×9 matrix position at level 1).
OneDollarExplosion combines a $1 gifting scheme with a three-tier matrix cycler.
The 2×9 matrix gifting scheme sees affiliate directly pay eachother:
DO YOU OFFER REFUNDS?
No, we do not offer any kind of refunds as the nature of our program does not allow it. All payments are member to member.
Despite this, the OneDollarExplosion insists it is not a cash gifting scheme, because ‘we actually have a product per pay level’.
Products bundled with gifting qualification fees are ebooks and various internet marketing videos, software, graphics and scripts.
Basically the usual crap nobody would purchase separately, outside of OneDollarExplosion’s cash gifting scheme.
Furthermore the inclusion of products at each qualification level does not change the fact that affiliates are paying (gifting) eachother. That’s what makes the 2×9 matrix a gifting scheme, with and bundled products being entirely irrelevant.
Affiliates pay their qualification fee to unlock a matrix level, and then using a company-wide queuing system wait for new and existing affiliates to send them money.
That’s about as straight-forward a cash gifting scheme as you can get.
The matrix cyclers meanwhile add a Ponzi/pyramid hybrid element to the scheme, seeing affiliates buy in for $20 and then realize an eventual $900 ROI once enough subsequent matrix positions have been invested in.
In both the 2×9 matrix and 2×2 matrix cyclers, existing affiliates are paid with new affiliate funds, placing OneDollarExplosion squarely in scam territory.
Once affiliates stop purchasing positions recruiting new affiliates to buy into the gifting scheme, both matrices will stall.
In the gifting scheme this means gift payments will stop, whereas the cycler matrices will simply stall.
Anyone who has funds still trapped in the system at that point loses out.
