TMT Network Review: TMT Matrix Ponzi cycler
TMT Network, aka TMT Matrix, fails to provide ownership or executive information on its website.
TMT Network’s website domain (“tmt-matrix.co.za”), was privately registered on October 30th, 2023.
As of November 2023, SimilarWeb tracked 100% of TMT Network’s website traffic out of South Africa.
The use of a South African domain and 100% local traffic strongly suggests whoever is running TMT Network has ties to South Africa.
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.
TMT Network’s Products
TMT Network has no retailable products or services.
Affiliates are only able to market TMT Network affiliate membership itself.
TMT Network’s Compensation Plan
TMT Network affiliates purchase R100 positions in a 2×3 matrix cycler.
A 3×3 matrix places an affiliate at the top of a matrix, with 3 positions directly under them:
These 3 positions form the first level of the matrix. The second level of the matrix is generated by splitting these first three positions into another three positions each (9 positions).
Level three of the matrix is generated in the same manner, adding another 27 positions to the matrix.
Positions in the matrix are filled via R100 cycler position purchases by directly and indirectly recruited affiliates.
Commissions are generated as positions in the matrix fill as follows:
- level 1 (3 positions to fill) – R100 paid as a commission, R200 used to cycle into level 2 of the matrix
- level 2 (9 positions to fill) – R1200 paid as a commission, R600 used to cycle into level 3 of the matrix
- level 3 (27 positions to fill) – R16,200 paid as a commission
Although not explicitly clarified, I believe R100 is required to generate a new level 1 position. From here the “cycling” process repeats itself.
Joining TMT Network
TMT Network affiliate membership is tied to an R100 matrix cycler position purchase.
TMT Network Conclusion
TMT Network gives the scam away in its marketing;
Bring 3 people. they bring their own and earn R17400 in total.
You sign up, you recruit three victims, they recruit three victims, they recruit three victims etc., and you steal from them all.
On the raw math side of things we have an R100 investment paying out R17,400. That’s 174 new position purchases per single R100 position cycling through the matrix.
This return is exclusively derived from subsequent R100 investments, which is what makes TMT Network a Ponzi scheme.
As with all MLM Ponzi cyclers, once recruitment inevitably dries up matrices will begin to stall.
This will result in less people cycling over time. Once enough TMT Network matrices have stalled, an irreversible collapse is triggered.
In addition to being illegal in South Africa and everywhere else in the world, math guarantees that the majority of participants in Ponzi cyclers lose money.
