Ride to the Future operates in the forex and cryptocurrency trading MLM niches.

The company doesn’t provide a corporate address on its website.

In a marketing presentation provided on Ride to the Future’s website, the company claims its head office is in Panama.

Further research reveals this address is virtual office space provided by Regus.

On their official Facebook account, Ride to the Future cites itself as an “internet marketing service in Frankfurt, Germany”.

Heading up Ride to the Future is CEO Nair Segura.

On her LinkedIn profile, Segura claims she’s a “corporate communication consultant” based out of Panama.

Seguna doesn’t appear to have an MLM history, which when combined with

  • Ride to the Future’s German Facebook presence;
  • Panama being a scam-friendly jurisdiction; and
  • Seguna’s professional history seeing her speak for corporations

…is pretty suspicious.

Seguna has appeared in at least one Ride to the Future corporate video, so she’s an actual person. What I’m not convinced about is her actually running the company.

Read on for a full review of Ride to the Future’s MLM opportunity.

Ride to the Future Affiliate Ranks

There are ten affiliate ranks within Ride to the Future’s compensation plan.

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

  • Milestone – personally recruit and maintain two affiliates (one on each side of the binary team) and generate $1000 in downline investment volume
  • Consultant – maintain two personally recruited affiliates (one on each side of the binary team) and generate $2500 in downline investment volume
  • Senior Consultant – maintain two personally recruited affiliates (one on each side of the binary team) and generate $7000 in downline investment volume
  • Ambassador – recruit and maintain four recruited affiliates (two on each side of the binary team) and generate $20,000 in downline investment volume
  • Senior Ambassador – maintain four personally recruited affiliates (two on each side of the binary team) and generate $70,000 in downline investment volume
  • Ruby – generate and maintain four Senior Consultants in your downline (two on each side of the binary team) and generate $200,000 in downline investment volume
  • Diamond – generate and maintain four Senior Ambassadors in your downline (two on each side of the binary team) and generate $600,000 in downline investment volume
  • Black Diamond – generate and maintain two Rubies in your downline (one on each side of the binary team) and generate at least $2,000,000 in downline investment volume
  • Vice President – generate and maintain four Diamonds in your downline (two on each side of the binary team) and generate $4,800,000 in downline investment volume
  • President – generate and maintain four Black Diamonds in your downline (two on each side of the binary team) and generate $9,600,000 in downline investment volume

In order to count towards rank qualification, downline affiliates (personally recruited or otherwise) must have an active investment.

Note that Ride to the Future’s rank qualification criteria mentions PV per day.

I initially thought this referred to the maximum investment volume counted per day but given the higher rank volume runs into the millions, this doesn’t make sense.

No explanation as to what PV per day with respect to rank qualification means is provided.

Referral Commissions

A 10% referral commission is paid on bitcoin invested by personally recruited affiliates.

Residual Commission Volume

Residual commissions are paid as a percentage of the following corresponding dollar amounts:

  • B1 investment = $20 residual sales volume
  • B2 investment = $50 residual sales volume
  • B3 investment = $100 residual sales volume
  • S1 investment = $200 residual sales volume
  • S2 investment = $500 residual sales volume
  • S3 investment = $1000 residual sales volume
  • G1 investment = $2000 residual sales volume
  • G2 investment = $4000 residual sales volume

Residual Commissions (unilevel)

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.

Ride to the Future caps payable unilevel team levels at seven.

Residual commissions are paid out as a percentage of bitcoin invested across these seven levels, based on rank:

  • B1 to B3 affiliates receive 15% on level 1 (personally recruited affiliates), 10% on level 2 and 5% on level 3
  • S1 to S3 affiliates receive 15% on level 1, 10% on level 2 and 5% on levels 3 to 5
  • G1 and G1 affiliates receive 15% on level 1, 10% on level 2 and 5% on levels 3 to 7

Note that these percentages are paid on residual sales volume (see “residual commission volume” above), not the total amount of funds invested.

Residual Commissions (binary)

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 Ride to the Future tallies up new investment on both sides of the binary team.

Affiliates are paid a percentage of residual sales volume generated on the weaker binary team side:

  • B1 to B3 affiliates receive 40%
  • S1 to S3 affiliates receive 45%
  • G1 and G2 affiliates receive 50%

Note that these percentages are paid on residual sales volume (see “residual commission volume” above), not the total amount of funds invested.

  • qualify as a Senior Consultant and receive a “branded watch”

  • Diamonds receive equal share in a 0.25% Global Pool
  • Black Diamonds receive equal share in a 0.5% Global Pool
  • Vice Presidents receive equal share in a 0.75% Global Pool
  • Presidents receive equal share in a 1% Global Pool

Conclusion

Ride to the Future represents it generates external revenue via forex and cryptocurrency trading.

Our platform provides super-fast execution of trade transactions for major currency pairs, such as bitcoin, bitcoin cash, litecoin, ethereum, dash, ripple to traditional currencies USD and EUR.

Interestingly enough that exact same spiel, taken from Ride to the Future’s official marketing presentation, features on about five hundred other websites (copy and paste it into Google to verify).

Aside from that, Ride to the Future provides no evidence of actual trading place. Nor is there any evidence that external revenue of any kind is being used to pay its investors.

Furthermore, Ride to the Future’s passive investment opportunity is a securities offering.

Securities in Germany are regulated by BaFin. Ride to the Future is not registered with BaFin, meaning the company operates illegally in Germany.

Panama does have a Securities Commission but effectively it’s an unregulated scam-friendly jurisdiction.

There’s no legitimate reason for an MLM company to pretend or actually be based out of Panama.

In summary, Ride to the Future is yet another MLM crypto Ponzi committing securities fraud.

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

This will starve Ride to the Future of return revenue, eventually prompting a collapse.

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