Rockwall Investments Review: Safe Crypto Trading And Mining MLM Business?
Rockwall Investments Works into MLM Niche as Another Ponzi Scheme for Crypto Industry
Rockwall Investments is another MLM company, and they announced early this year that they are in the pre-launch stage. Originally, consumers looking into their website started to increase around May, though research indicates that the majority of that traffic is in Poland and Australia. Typically, a startup like this would not elicit any suspicion, but there are many details missing that lead experts to believe otherwise.
To start, there are very few details about the owners or even the CEOs of the company. Based on the website, Wiktor Zajączkowski and Rafał Krakowiak are the owners, but that is where the information dies. Consumers can find an alleged image of the duo on a Facebook post from September 22nd, which was supposedly take at the Crypto Future Expo in Warsaw the weekend before. Before now, the only details about the co-owners appears to be their involvement with Trade Coin Club and FutureNet, which were both Ponzi schemes.
Another concern is the lack of product. The only product truly advertised and available to investors is an affiliate membership. Affiliates with Rockwall Investments have the choice of a crypto-trading plan or a mining plan. Each one has a minimum investment – $50 for the crypto trading membership and $25 for the mining. However, either membership fee requires a promise of a ROI payouts, which are 14 days perpetually for mining and 150 days for trading, though the percentages differ. Part of this promise is that 55% is required to be reinvested, which means that any member sees less than half of any commission they make.
With each ROI payment, Rockwall Investments holds onto 5%, which the affiliates are required to use for the purchase of matrix cycler positions. Wrapping around the company again, the positions can only be purchased by affiliates, so there is already a certain engagement required to even get involved. The company has a tier system, where each cycler starts with a head position (the first affiliate), which branches out into three positions in level 1. Then, each level is given three positions in Level 2. Even if someone just draws a diagram of these layers for themselves, the pyramid-style of the scheme should be enough to set them off. There can be up to 11 layers beneath each affiliate.
Once the affiliate purchases their position, they have to have the rest of the positions filled underneath them to create their matrix and receive any amount of the ROI allotment. The funds paid to the original affiliate come from the fees that everyone underneath them has covered.
Each tier has different investment requirements and ROI payment promises. The levels include:
- Investment: $10
- ROI payout: $200
- Investment: $25
- ROI payout: $500
- Investment: $50
- ROI payout: $1,000
- Investment: $75
- ROI payout: $1,500
- Investment: $100
- ROI payout: $2,000
- Investment: $150
- ROI payout: $3,000
- Investment: $200
- ROI payout: $4,000
- Investment: $500
- ROI payout: $10,000
- Investment: $1,500
- ROI payout: $30,000
- Investment: $6,000
- ROI payout: $120,000
- Investment: $12,000
- ROI payout: $240,000
One other way that affiliates seem to be able to earn profits is through an 8% commission on referrals, based on the among that the affiliate invested in their position. The commissions for other investments come through a compensation structure that is fairly similar to the matrix cycler. The total commission paid back to the affiliate depends on the amount of people in their downline.
Even with all of these investments, the actual membership is free. However, to get involved in any kind of way, the investments start at $25. To bring in additional revenue, the company says that they plan to integrate themselves into real estate as well, but there is no indication that they have pursued that yet. In fact, aside from some pictures of video card rigs on a shelf, there is nothing to even show that the company has mined or paid any affiliates.
Research indicates that neither of the co-owners are presently registered with the SEC, making them an illegal and unregistered securities offering, at best. Furthermore, they “operate on a zero-refund policy,” so all funds put into the company are entirely lost.
