TrafficAdBlast Review: Ripple (XRP) adpack Ponzi scheme
TrafficAdBlast operate in the advertising MLM niche and appear to be based Brazil.
Cited as “Head of Staff Team” on the TrafficAdBlast website is Cleiton Maronni.
On his Twitter profile, Maronni claims to be the founder of TrafficAdBlast and cites his location as Rio de Janeiro.
TrafficAdBlast appears to have first launched in 2017 as a 1 cent a click opportunity.
A few months ago Maronni (right) relaunched TrafficAdBlast as a Ripple (XRP) revenue-sharing opportunity.
Read on for a full review of the TrafficAdBlast MLM opportunity.
TrafficAdBlast has no retailable products or services, with affiliates only able to market TrafficAdBlast affiliate membership itself.
TrafficAdBlast affiliates invest funds on the promise of an advertised ROI.
Bundled with these investments are adcredits, which can be used to display advertising to other TrafficAdBlast affiliates.
The TrafficAdBlast Compensation Plan
TrafficAdBlast affiliates invest the Ripple cryptocurrency (XRP) on the promise of an advertised 120% ROI (up to 3% a day):
- Mini-Adpacks – 5 XRP
- AdPack Plan 1 – 10 XRP
- AdPack Plan 2 – 25 XRP
- AdPack Plan 3 – 50 XRP
In order to qualify for daily ROIs, TrafficAdBlast affiliates must watch ads provided by other affiliates.
Note that TrafficAdBlast affiliates can only invest at each adpack tier up to one hundred times.
Also note that 40% of ROI payouts must be reinvested into new adpacks.
TrafficAdBlast affiliates who pay a 30 XRP fee are designated “Premium” affiliates.
Premium TrafficAdBlast affiliates earn referral commissions on funds via a unilevel compensation structure.
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.
TrafficAdBlast cap payable unilevel levels at five.
Referral commissions are paid out as a percentage of funds invested across these five levels.
Note that TrafficAdBlast do not disclose paid referral commission rates on their website.
Free TrafficAdBlast affiliates earn 1 XRP per affiliate they recruit who invests.
For Premium TrafficAdBlast affiliates this is increased to 2 XRP.
TrafficAdBlast affiliate membership is either free or 30 XRP for Premium.
Premium affiliate membership is required for participation in the TrafficAdBlast MLM opportunity.
Premium affiliates are also able to withdraw up to 100 XRP a day, whereas free TrafficAdBlast affiliates are capped at 30 XRP.
TrafficAdBlast is built around the concept of new investment being used to pay existing affiliates a daily ROI.
All Adpack earnings are distribued [sic] of the total SALES in the Whole Platform.
The rest of the TrafficAdBlast “platform” is smoke and mirrors, in an attempt to add legitimacy to what is otherwise a typical adcredit Ponzi scheme.
As with all Ponzi schemes, once TrafficAdBlast affiliate recruitment dies off, so too will new investment.
This will starve TrafficAdBlast of ROI revenue, eventually prompting a collapse.
There are signs TrafficAdBlast’s reboot earlier this year is already in trouble, prompting Cleiton Maronni to launch TrafficAdCoins.
TrafficAdCoins operates in the same manner as TrafficAdBlast. Whereas TrafficAdBlast is limited to XRP however, TrafficAdCoins expands Maronni’s Ponzi empire to include bitcoin, litecoin and ethereum.
In the TrafficAdCoins affiliate backoffice, Maronni claims he had to launch a new Ponzi scheme because ‘there are some features that is too hard to add in TrafficAdBlast‘ (below, click to enlarge):
Other than that it’s the same old adcredit Ponzi scheme story: Cleiton Maronni and a few early TrafficAdBlast investors will receive the majority of invested funds, everyone else loses out.
