Xelius Review: Space themed Ponzi with XEL token exit-scam
Xelius provides no information on its website about who owns or runs the company.
On the “about” section of Xelius’ website, it claims to be “a private innovation company based in Hong Kong.”
To that end a Hong Kong incorporation certificate for Xelius Innovation Limited, purportedly incorporated in January 2021, is provided.
For the purpose of MLM due-diligence, basic incorporation anywhere is meaningless.
Xelius’ website domain (“xelius.me”), was first registered in December 2020. The private registration was last updated on October 27th, 2021.
A visit to the Wayback Machine reveals Xelius’ current website went live on or around January 9th.
This coincides with Alexa first recording traffic to Xelius’ website on the same date.
This suggests the current owners took possession of Xelius’ website domain on or around October 27th.
Additionally supporting this is Xelius’ official YouTube channel being created on December 26th. The company’s official Twitter profile was also created in December.
This further casts doubt on the Xelius Innovation Limited incorporation having anything to do with Xelius the MLM company.
Suggesting Xelius instead has ties to Russia and/or Ukraine, is Xelius’ official Android app being developed by “Ольга-Соломия Туряница”.
This developer doesn’t exist outside of Xelius’ Google Play app page.
As ranked by Alexa, Vietnam (17%), Ukraine (9%) and Egypt (9%) are top sources of traffic to Xelius’ 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.
Xelius has no retailable products or services.
Affiliates are only able to market Xelius affiliate membership itself.
Xelius’ Compensation Plan
Xelius affiliates invest funds on the promise of advertised returns.
- Edison – invest $10 or more and receive 2.2% a day
- Tesla – invest $100,000 or more and receive 3.5% a day
There doesn’t appear to be any income caps on the investment side of Melius.
Melius’ MLM compensation plan pays commissions on investment made by recruited affiliates.
Xelius 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.
Xelius caps payable unilevel team levels at eight.
Referral commissions are paid out as a percentage of funds invested across these eight levels as follows:
- level 1 (personally recruited affiliates) – 6%
- level 2 – 3%
- level 3 – 2%
- level 4 – 1%
- level 5 – 0.8%
- level 6 – 0.5%
- level 7 – 0.3%
- level 8 – 0.1%
Representative ranked affiliates earn slightly higher referral commission rates:
- level 1 – 8%
- level 2 – 4%
- level 3 – 3%
- level 4 – 2%
- level 5 – 1%
- level 6 – 0.8%
- level 7 – 0.5%
- level 8 – 0.3%
Note that Xelius do not disclose Representative qualification criteria.
Xelius affiliate membership is free.
Full participation in the attached income opportunity requires a minimum $20 investment.
Xelius solicits investment through USD (Perfect Money) and various cryptocurrencies.
Xelius’ website is draped in space-themed imagery.
There’s talk of “proprietary technologies”; jet eco-engines, nuclear engines, pulse detonation engines, nanosatellites, nanosensors and so on.
Naturally there’s no evidence of any of this. It’s all a marketing ruse to front a Ponzi scheme.
All the funds that customers have invested in Xelius Innovation Limited are immediately invested in our technological developments in order to be able to pay our declared profitability to each of our clients as quickly as possible.
Consideration of the claim above, taken from Xelius’ website, makes absolutely no sense.
Innovation costs money, it doesn’t produce it. At least not directly – and certainly not to the tune of 3.5% a day.
But of course Xelius’ marketing claims aren’t supposed to make sense. It’s a dog and pony show meant to separate you from your money.
As it stands the only verifiable source of revenue entering Xelius is new investment.
Using new investment to pay daily returns makes Xelius a Ponzi scheme.
As with all MLM Ponzi schemes, once affiliate recruitment dries up so too will new investment.
This will starve Xelius of ROI revenue, eventually leading to a collapse.
Xelius’ exit-scam appears to be the shit token route. To that end XEL tokens were introduced on February 9th.
Today we inform you that you can now withdraw the XEL token to wallets that support the BEP20 network and allow you to import the tokens.
In particular, to withdraw the XEL token, you can use MetaMask, SafePal and Trust Wallet.
XEL is a BEP20 token created on the binance smartchain. BEP20 tokens take about 5 minutes to set up at little to no cost.
Naturally there’s no interest in XEL outside of Xelius. What happens is Xelius will use invested funds to buy back XEL tokens from affiliates through trading.
This works until Xelius’ admins decide to pull the plug, leaving affiliates bagholding yet another worthless MLM shitcoin.
The math behind Ponzi schemes guarantees the majority of participants lose money.
