Top Biticoin Review: 2×1 matrix bitcoin gifting
Top Biticoin provide no information on their website about who owns or runs the company.
The Top Biticoin website domain (“topbiticoin.com”) was registered on March 17th, 2016 with bogus information.
At the time of publication Alexa estimate that Italy (44%), Germany (40%) and Pakistan (15%) are the primary sources of traffic to the Top Biticoin website.
Whoever is running the company is likely also based out of one of these countries.
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.
Top Biticoin Products
Top Biticoin has no retailable products or services, with affiliates only able to market Top Biticoin affiliate membership itself.
The Top Biticoin Compensation Plan
Top Biticoin affiliates gift bitcoin to eachother via a 2×1 matrix.
A 2×1 matrix places a Top Biticoin affiliate at the top of a matrix, with two positions directly under them:
Positions in the matrix are filled when newly recruited and existing Top Biticoin affiliates make gifting payments.
Prior to the 6th of April, Top Biticoin affiliates gifted 0.03 BTC to enter the matrix. Whether this is still the amount gifted is unclear.
In any event, a Top Biticoin affiliate signs up and gifts a set amount of bitcoin to the affiliate who recruited them. This payment in turn qualifies the affiliate to receive bitcoin from two other Top Biticoin affiliates.
Once both matrix positions are filled, another gifting payment must be made to reenter a new 2×1 matrix.
Joining Top Biticoin
Top Biticoin is tied to a gifting payment.
Prior to April 6th this payment was 0.03 BTC. Whether the amount is still the same is unclear.
Top Biticoin manages to take the bitcoin matrix gifting model and make it worse, by not disclosing the amount of bitcoin affiliates have to gift.
Other than that, Top Biticoin is a cookie-cutter entry into the MLM underbelly’s bitcoin gifting niche.
On the pseudo-compliance side of things, Top Biticoin describe themselves as ‘a donation platform peer-to-peer software 100%‘.
A few paragraphs down on the same page, the company drops the facade and reveals what’s actually being marketed:
How does it work?
Get double any amount of money you choose to invest in this investment platform within 48 hours.
The “doubling” mechanic is paid out over the two matrix positions. You pay A and receive 2*A, corresponding with the two matrix positions under you.
As with all cash gifting schemes, once affiliate recruitment dies down so too will payments. At that point Top Biticoin collapses, leaving the majority of affiliates with a loss.
