Orius Capital operates in the cryptocurrency MLM niche.

The company claims to be based out of Hong Kong and headed up founder and CEO Diago Lopez Vea.

Vea has no digital footprint outside of Orius Capital, so there’s a question mark on whether he actually exists or not.

Orius Capital’s marketing videos appear to be populated with actors. I’m basing this on none of them seeming to exist outside of the videos themselves.

In contrast to the non-Asians used in Orius Capital’s marketing efforts, their Asian counterparts do exist. Or at least one of them does.

Enge Chee Seng is cited as Orius Capital’s COO of Asia Market.

Seng featured in a recent video purportedly depicting an Orius Capital  marketing event held in Vietnam last month.

Diago Lopez Vea wasn’t at the event.

In fact beyond the badly cropped image on their website, there doesn’t appear to be any other footage of Vea in relation to Orius Capital.

The Hong Kong corporate address provided on Orius Capital’s website belongs to Get Started HK Limited.

According to their website, Get Started HK Limited offers Hong Kong company formation services.

Thus it appears Orius Capital has no actual physical presence in Hong Kong. Their incorporation there appears to be that of a meaningless shell company.

Despite Orius Capital’s focus on marketing in Vietnam, Alexa currently pegs the US as the top source of traffic to their website (37%).

Canada comes second at 15%, followed by Vietnam at 10%.

Orius Capital Affiliate Ranks

There are four affiliate ranks within Orius Capital’s compensation plan.

Along with their respective qualification criteria, they are as follows:

  • Supervisor – recruit at least two affiliates who have each invested
  • Manager – recruit at least five affiliates who have each invested at least $1000 and generate $5000 in weaker binary team side volume each month
  • Director – invest at least $10,000 yourself, recruit at least ten affiliates who have each invested at least $1000 and generate $50,000 in weaker binary team side volume each month
  • Founder – maintain an active $10,000 investment, recruit at least fifteen affiliates who have each invested at least $1000 and generate $100,000 in weaker binary team side volume each month

Residual Commissions

Orius Capital pays residual commissions via a binary compensation structure.

A binary compensation structure places an affiliate at the top of a binary team, split into two sides (left and right):

The first level of the binary team houses two positions. The second level of the binary team is generated by splitting these first two positions into another two positions each (4 positions).

Subsequent levels of the binary team are generated as required, with each new level housing twice as many positions as the previous level.

Positions in the binary team are filled via direct and indirect recruitment of affiliates. Note there is no limit to how deep a binary team can grow.

At the end of each day Orius Capital tallies up new investment volume on both sides of the binary team.

Residual commissions are paid out as a percentage of funds invested on the weaker binary team side.

Orius Capital determines residual commission rates by affiliate rank:

  • Supervisors are paid a 5% residual commission rate
  • Managers are paid a 6% residual commission rate
  • Directors are paid a 7% residual commission rate
  • Founders are paid an 8% residual commission rate

Joining Orius Capital

Orius Capital affiliate membership is tied to a minimum $200 investment.

Orius Capital only accepts bitcoin and ethereum for investment.

Conclusion

Orius Capital claims to generate external revenue through a “trading bot & signals”. The company also claims to have a “strategic partnership” with Orus Bank, a fictional entity purportedly based out Belize.

No verifiable evidence exists of Orius Capital using trading revenue or any other source of external revenue to pay affiliates.

Furthermore Orius Capital’s business model fails the Ponzi logic test.

If Enge Chee Seng and his co-conspirators were able to legitimately generate a consistent 2.8% daily return, what do they need your money for?

Even a modest starting amount would soon balloon into a fortune at 2% a day compounded.

Yet here’s Ormius Capital, selling access to such a return for just $200.¬†Riiiiiiiiiiight.

Owing to the passive nature of Orius Capital’s investment opportunity, quite clearly it is offering a security.

Orius Capital is not registered to offer securities in any jurisdiction it operates in, namely the US and Canada.

In addition to securities fraud, the rest of Orius Capital’s compensation plan is a pyramid scheme.

Affiliates sign up, invest and are then paid to recruit new affiliate investors.

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

This will starve Orius Capital of ROI revenue, eventually prompting a collapse.

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