The Prosperity Grid Review: $500 a pop cash gifting
The Prosperity Grid provides no information on their website about who owns or runs the company.
The Prosperity Grid’s website domain (“theprosperitygrid.com”) was registered on March 6th, 2021.
The mostly private registration only reveals the domain was registered with a South African address.
This syncs with The Prosperity Grid marketing videos, which predominantly feature participants with South African accents.
This suggests that The Prosperity Grid is being run from South Africa and primarily promoted to South Africans.
I did note that one woman who seems to be a The Prosperity Grid admin claimed to be in Dubai.
As always, if an MLM company is not openly upfront about who is running or owns it, think long and hard about joining and/or handing over any money.
The Prosperity Grid’s Products
The Prosperity Grid has no retailable products or services.
Affiliates are only able to market The Prosperity Grid affiliate membership itself.
The Prosperity Grid’s Compensation Plan
The Prosperity Grid affiliates participate in a $500 a pop gifting scheme.
Gifting payments within The Prosperity Grid are tracked via a 2×3 matrix.
A 2×3 matrix places an affiliate at the top of a matrix, with two positions directly under them:
These two positions form the first level of the matrix. The second level of the matrix is generated by splitting these first two positions into another two positions each (4 positions).
The third level of the matrix is generated in the same manner and houses eight positions.
Positions in the matrix are filled via direct and indirect recruitment of The Prosperity Grid affiliates who gift in $500.
Matrix positions can also be filled by existing affiliates re-gifting $500 for a new position.
Gifting payments are calculated on the third level of the matrix. $500 payments from these eight positions goes to the affiliate who owns the top position of the matrix.
Once all eight position are filled, the matrix splits into two new 2×3 matrices with blank third levels.
The process of filling these eight positions repeats, with payments going to the new top of the matrix position.
Through this gifting model, one $500 gifting payments is intended to pay out $4000.
Re-gifting to create a new $500 position and continue earning is optional.
Joining The Prosperity Grid
The Prosperity Grid affiliate membership is tied to a minimum $500 gifting payment.
The Prosperity Grid is a simple $500 in, $4000 out gifting scheme.
You sign up, gift $500 and that money is sent to an existing member. You then hope recruitment of new participants continues, such that you can steal $4000 and cycle out of your matrix.
This process continues as long as recruitment of new participants happens.
Existing The Prosperity Grid affiliates re-gifting $500 for new positions helps, the but they don’t cycle out without new members signing up and gifting in.
The recruitment dependency of The Prosperity Grid makes it a pyramid scheme. This is true of all MLM gifting schemes.
Once recruitment dries up, payments stop, enough matrices stall and The Prosperity Grid collapses.
The math behind MLM gifting schemes sees the majority of funds gifted in paid to admins and early participants (typically friends or acquaintances of the admin).
A few recruiters get whats left, leaving the majority of participants with an eventual loss.
Behind The Prosperity Grid’s fluffy marketing pitch is simple math: 1 person taking payments from eight creates an 8:1 deficit.
Rinse and repeat a few times and things snowball further. Over time that deficit continues to grow exponentially.
Recruitment inevitably dies and kaboom.
Update 21st May 2022 – Recruitment is down and The Prosperity Grid is on its way to inevitably collapsing.
Update 28th May 2022 – The Prosperity Grid has deleted all videos from its YouTube channel.
I did provide one link to an example video but, in light of the video being deleted, have disabled the link.
