SuperOne Review 2.0: Failed Ponzi reboots with trivia app
SuperOne launched two years ago as an ethereum smart contract Ponzi scheme.
The company sold SuperOne token lottery tickets for 0.1 ETH each. Lottery winners were allegedly selected by “proprietary algorithms”.
On the back-end affiliate investors were able to invest in and cash out SuperOne tokens, which went up in value as more ethereum was invested.
The MLM side of SuperOne’s business model was pyramid recruitment.
You signed up, invest in SuperOne tokens and commissions were paid when you recruited others who did the same.
Of the two billion SuperOne tokens created out of thin air, founder Andreas Christensen retained half.
SuperOne collapsed shortly after launch, leaving Christensen and initial investors bagholding worthless tokens.
In an effort to create an opportunity to sell off SuperOne tokens, a few months ago the company was resurrected.
Same company owner, same tokens… but they’ve added a mobile game and changed the comp plan up.
Andreas Christensen (right) is from Norway. Whether he’s running SuperOne from Norway or elsewhere however is unclear.
SuperOne is incorporated in the UK as “SuperOne Limited”.
UK incorporation is dirt cheap and effectively unregulated. It is a favored jurisdiction for scammers looking to incorporate dodgy companies.
Christensen was not disclosed as the owner of the company on SuperOne’s launch website in 2018.
Two years on and SuperOne’s website still fails to provide company ownership and management information.
In light of the relaunch and changes to the business, today we’re revisiting SuperOne for an updated review.
SuperOne has no retailable products or services, with affiliates only able to market SuperOne affiliate membership itself.
SuperOne’s Compensation Plan
SuperOne affiliates invest in SRX tokens.
- SuperLaunch 100 – invest $100 and receive 3000 SRX tokens
- SuperLaunch 1000 – invest $1000 and receive 30,000 SRX tokens
- SuperLaunch 5000 – invest $5000 and receive 200,000 SRX tokens
- SuperLaunch 10,000 – invest $10,000 and receive 460,000 SRX tokens
- SuperLaunch 25,000 – invest $25,000 and receive 1,300,000 SRX tokens
- SuperLaunch 50,000 – invest $50,000 and receive 3,000,000 SRX tokens
- SuperLaunch 100,000 – invest $100,000 and receive 6,600,000 SRX tokens
Commissions are paid on the direct and indirect recruitment of affiliates who also invest.
SuperOne Affiliate Ranks
There are nine affiliate ranks within SuperOne’s compensation plan.
Along with their respective qualification criteria, they are as follows:
- Star – recruit two affiliates who have invested
- SuperStar – recruit two Stars
- Director 10K – generate $10,000 in downline investment volume
- Director 20K – generate $30,000 in downline investment volume
- Director 30K – generate $100,000 in downline investment volume
- Director 50K – generate $200,000 in downline investment volume
- Director 100K – generate $300,000 in downline investment volume
- Director 150K – generate $500,000 in downline investment volume
- Legend – generate $1,000,000 in downline investment volume
SuperOne affiliates are paid 5% of funds invested by personally recruited affiliates.
Residual Commissions (matrix)
From a SuperOne affiliate’s fourth affiliate, they are paid 10% of funds invested by affiliates placed into a 3 wide matrix.
A 3 wide matrix places an affiliate at the top of a matrix, with three positions directly under them.
These three affiliates are sourced from the first three recruits of personally recruited affiliates (from the 4th onward).
The second level of the matrix is populated by the first three recruits of the placed level 1 affiliates, and so on and so forth down a theoretical infinite number of levels.
To clarify, each fourth and subsequently personally recruited affiliate generates a new 3 wide matrix.
These matrices are filled by the recruitment effort of affiliates in that recruitment leg.
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.
Each week SuperOne tallies up new investment volume on both sides of the binary team.
Affiliates are paid 10% of funds invested on the weaker binary team side.
- Stars can earn up to $500 a week
- SuperStars can earn up to $2000 a week
- Director 10Ks can earn up to $10,000 a week
- Director 20Ks can earn up to $20,000 a week
- Director 30Ks can earn up to $30,000 a week
- Director 50Ks can earn up to $50,000 a week
- Director 100Ks can earn up to $100,000 a week
- Director 150Ks can earn up to $150,000 a week
- Legends can earn up to $250,000 a week
SuperOne pays a flat 30% matching bonus on on commissions earned by personally recruited affiliates.
An additional 10% match is paid out from the Director 10K rank.
Director 10Ks earn a 10% match paid through unilevel team generations.
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.
Within a unilevel team, generations are defined in each leg by downline Director 10K and higher ranked affiliates.
The first Director 10K or higher ranked affiliate found in a unilevel team leg caps off the first generation for that leg.
The second generation for that leg begins after them and is capped by another Director 10K or higher found deeper in the leg.
If no such ranked affiliate exists, the second generation extends down the full depth of the leg.
Using this generation structure, SuperOne affiliates can earn a 10% match on up to seven generations per unilevel team leg.
- Director 10Ks earn a 10% match on one generation per leg
- Director 20Ks earn a 10% match on two generations per leg
- Director 30Ks earn a 10% match on three generations per leg
- Director 50Ks earn a 10% match on four generations per leg
- Director 100Ks earn a 10% match on five generations per leg
- Director 150Ks earn a 10% match on six generations per leg
- Legends earn a 10% match on seven generations per leg
SuperOne affiliate membership is tied to a minimum $100 investment:
- SuperLaunch 100 – $100
- SuperLaunch 1000 – $1000
- SuperLaunch 5000 – $5000
- SuperLaunch 10,000 – $10,000
- SuperLaunch 25,000 – $25,000
- SuperLaunch 50,000 – $50,000
- SuperLaunch 100,000 – $100,000
There is also a free and $10 tier but these are locked out of MLM commissions.
There’s not much to SuperOne’s 2020 reboot.
The tokens affiliates are investing into are the same ERC-20 tokens SuperOne launched with in 2018.
SuperOne’s core investment business model is mostly the same:
- invest in SRX tokens
- the more people invest the higher SuperOne sets the internal SRX token price
- start cashing out when you think you’ve built enough of an SRX token balance
Withdrawals are made through an internal exchange. SuperOne pays withdrawals with subsequently invested funds, retaining the original 2018 Ponzi model.
The MLM side of SuperOne is still pyramid recruitment too. It’s nothing more than a financial incentive to keep new investment flowing to feed the Ponzi side of the business.
On the marketing side of things, SuperOne justifies investment fraud by claiming they are selling credits for the recycled app game (more on that in a bit).
This is straight pseudo-compliance. It’s no different to other MLM crypto Ponzi claiming to sell educational packages bundled with free tokens.
However you want to dress it up, SuperOne affiliates are investing in SRX tokens, which the company represents will increase in value.
This is based on nothing more than continued investment from recruited affiliates.
Also as far as MLM Ponzi schemes go, SuperOne is heavily stacked against regular investors. More so than normal.
Top investors and recruiters are given “binary priority positions”, which means their binary teams are fed from elsewhere in the company.
These investors are also provided with undisclosed “special terms” perks:
And when the time comes to withdrawals, naturally top recruiters will be given first dibs on pillaging SuperOne’s invested funds balance:
We love to be rewarding, and therefore we provide an exclusive double bonus for investors in the first $1 million of the $10 million early round.
This is your chance to secure yourself some more extra valuable tokens.
We will open for early investors to exclusively liquidate their positions at a token price of $1 per token.
At this point, you will as an early investor be able to sell your tokens with a massive upside.
If you were recruited by one of these top irecruiters, you and everyone else will be thrown whatever’s left after the top dogs have drained the trough.
The other significant change from SuperOne’s 2018 launch is the game app. The lottery malarkey has been replaced with a pre-school project tier swipe trivia app.
I’m not exaggerating. SuperOne’s app throws up a photo and possible name. Users then swipe left or right to confirm or reject whether the subject matter matched the provided name.
Now before people who’ve already invested in SuperOne rush to throw out cliches like “pOtEnTiAl” and “GiVe It A cHanCe!”, let’s take a look at Andreas Christensen’s other company, Mowjow.
Mowjow launched in 2013 and as per the company’s website:
Since our initial launch, we have developed and published a portfolio of visual quiz game formats that are designed to appeal to a broad global audience of smartphones and tablet users who play our browser-based web applications or install our games through direct-to-consumer digital storefronts.
Seven years on, how did that go?
As I write this Mowjow has failed to launch a successful game app. The company’s current Alexa traffic ranking sits at 3.7 million, which is as good as dead.
SuperOne is just a repurposed Mowjow game. The ruse is that now, for no particular reason, all of a sudden the company’s trivia app will be a runaway success.
In reality nobody will use the trivia app outside of SuperOne itself. And even then only for marketing promo videos.
There is no successful track record behind Mowjow. Thus the only thing propping SuperOne up is investment fraud.
Which is the exact same premise the company first launched on in 2018.
Even SuperOne’s failed 2018 Ponzi launch wasn’t Andreas Christensen’s first crypto fraud rodeo. In early 2018, prior to SuperOne’s launch, Christensen was flogging a Mowjow ICO to Japanese investors.
It flopped just as hard as Mowjow itself and SuperOne’s first iteration.
As with all MLM Ponzi schemes, once affiliate recruitment dies off so too will new investment.
This will starve SuperOne of ROI revenue, eventually prompting a collapse.
The math behind Ponzi schemes guarantees that the majority of participants lose money.
