Trinity Mining claim to generate external ROI revenue through cloud mining operations in Portugal.
We will maintain all our mining machines and source all the required energy from our solar wind turbines preserved in Portugal.
Specific cryptocurrencies Trinity Mining claims to mine are bitcoin, bitcoin gold, ethereum, litecoin and zcash.
Unfortunately Trinity Mining provide no evidence of mining operations or external revenue being used to pay affiliates.
As it stands the only verifiable source of revenue entering Trinity Mining is new investment.
Using new investment to pay existing affiliates an annual ROI makes Trinity Mining a Ponzi scheme.
Additional elements supporting this are Trinity Mining’s withdrawal fees and lack of disclosure regarding company ownership and management.
Withdrawal fees make no sense if Trinity Mining was in fact actually mining cryptocurrency.
One of the core benefits of cryptocurrency is the ability to transfer funds between holders at little to no cost.
The MLM cryptocurrency niche is rife with fraud; such that if a company is unwilling to disclose basic information, it’s a safe bet nothing presented to potential investors is legitimate.
Trinity Mining ticks all of the boxes for your typical MLM cryptocurrency Ponzi scheme.
The math behind Ponzi schemes guarantees that when they collapse, the majority of investors lose money.
When Trinity Mining inevitably collapses, best of luck recovering your funds from a virtual address in Panama.

Krstic was arrested in Serbia on behalf of US authorities in mid 2020.
