Tron3X Review: 300% ROI smart-contract Ponzi
Tron3X provides no information on its website about who owns or runs the company.
Tron3X’s website domain (‘tron3x.io”) was privately registered on September 1st, 2020.
Tron3X’s official YouTube channel hosts a marketing video featuring “Michael”:
Whoever Michael is he gives off some pretty strong Fivver vibes.
Update 7th November 2020 – Since this review was published, Tron3X has deleted all videos uploaded to their YouTube channel. /end update
Alexa currently ranks Venezuela, Colombia and Kazakhstan as top sources of traffic to Tron3X’s website.
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.
Tron3X has no retailable products or services, with affiliates only able to market Tron3X affiliate membership itself.
Tron3X’s Compensation Plan
Tron3X affiliates sign up and invest 100 TRX on the promise of an advertised 2% daily ROI, paid for 150 days (300%).
Note that referral commissions and the Daily Top Referrer Pool count towards the 300% return cap.
Once 300% is accumulated, Tron3X affiliates must reinvest in order to continue earning.
Subsequent investments are subject to the following restrictions:
- first reinvestment must be between 1000 to 100,000 TRX
- second reinvestment must be between first reinvestment amount and 300,000 TRX
- third reinvestment amount must be between second reinvestment amount and 900,000 TRX
- fourth reinvestment amount must be between third reinvestment amount and 2,000,000 TRX
Tron3X pays referral commissions 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.
Tron3X pays caps unilevel team levels at fifteen.
Referrral commissions are paid as a percentage of daily returns paid out, on the day a unilevel team affiliate makes a withdrawal.
- level 1 (personally recruited affiliates) – 30%
- levels 2 to 5 – 10%
- level 6 to 10 – 8%
- level 11 to 15 – 5%
Note that to unlock each of the fifteen available unilevel team levels, recruitment is required.
Recruit one affiliate to unlock level 1, recruit two affiliates to unlock level 2 etc.
Daily Top Referrer Pool
Tron3X takes 3% of company-wide investment and places it into a Daily Top Referrer Pool.
The Daily Top Referrer Pool is paid out daily to the company’s daily top four recruiters.
Tron3X affiliate membership is free.
Full participation in the attached income opportunity however requires a minimum 100 TRX investment.
Tron3X is a simple smart-contract Ponzi run by person(s) unknown.
Like any Ponzi scheme, Tron3X will primarily benefit the scammer(s) running it.
When recruitment stops so too will new investment, prompting Tron3X to collapse.
The math behind Ponzi schemes guarantees that when they collapse, the majority of participants lose money.
Update 7th November 2020 – Tron3X collapsed on October 31st. Affiliate investor losses are believed to be upwards of $130,000.
yeah, turn all of your books with spine facing the wall. That’s not suspicious AT ALL.
It doesn’t just look ridiculous, I’d never trust someone who has so few books on his shelves that it is something he can easily do.
Only one book has a visible title. It’s something called “From Coach to Awakaner”, by one Robert Dilts, and it’s a piece of NLP crap.
I’ve always found that the most interesting thing about Neuro-Linguistic Programming is that it’s got absolutely nothing to do with either neurology, linguistics, or programming.
In particular, it teaches one something the author calls “Large C Coaching”:
One presumes one of those amazing new behavorial competencies is the ability to turn all of the two dozen books you own around before making a video.
And one of the new cognitive capabilities is thinking that isn’t a totally ridiculous thing to do, which just makes everyone wonder what you want to hide.
I’m still new at this, so maybe I’m making a “Well, duh” statement, but it tells me they hired the mouthpiece and gave him a script, caring little who sees him. But they anonymized the background, trying to hide where they shot the video.
“Show the face, not the place,” was the phrase that popped into my head.
The one readable title is a psychobabble book on NLP, and that kind of crap is big, big, BIG among MLM-ers, whether mainstream or underbelly. This was probably shot at the home (or office, or Mom’s basement) of a founder.
I see that I forgot to add another “[sic]” after “empowering eliefs”. Yes, that’s straight from the book’s promotional copy on Amazon. The behavorial competencies it teaches clearly do not include proofreading one’s own material.
I wonder for how long we’ll continue to see this by now standard “it uses a smart contract, so it can’t be a scam” sales shtick.
I will never understand that logic. The first time I saw a scammer/victim (it’s hard to tell which they are, sometimes) claim “It cannot be a scam because no human is involved,” I about spit coffee all over my keyboard.
Come on, a scam can’t be automated? What is wrong with these people?
It’s even funnier when you take a look at some of these smart contracts (which is an intentionally deceitful term to begin with).
For example, the Kuailian people make a big song and dance about theirs.
It turns out that’s just 15 lines of ultra-simple code, and the only thing it does is transfer money (well, Ether) from a Kuailian wallet to the wallets of the investors.
If Kuailian doesn’t manually transfer enough into the source wallet first, obviously the payouts stop.
It’s got as much to do with either being smart or being a contract, or with guarantueeing that actual payment happens, as someone printing out checks from their computer rather than write them by hand.
For anyone wanting to check:
Shohan Bowala promoted this scam too! He has a bunch of scams hidden from sccial media on his website at (removed).
He is a big ass scammer… BIG ASS and FAT ASS too!
Tron3X might have collapsed. They’ve just nuked all their social media profiles.
Confirmed, Tron3X collapsed. Added collapse article link.
