Hedgefinity Review: Bitcoin matrix cycler Ponzi
Hedgefinity provides no information on their website about who owns or runs the company.
The Hedgefinity website domain (“hedgefinity.com”) was privately registered on July 20th, 2018.
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.
Hedgefinity has no retailable products or services, with affiliates only able to market Hedgefinity affiliate membership itself.
The Hedgefinity Compensation Plan
Hedgefinity affiliates purchase positions in an 2×8 matrix cycler.
A 2×8 matrix places an affiliate at the top of a matrix, with two positions directly under them.
These two positions form the first level of the matrix. The second level of the matrix is generated by splitting these first two positions into another two positions each (4 positions).
Levels three to eight of the matrix are generated in the same manner, with each new level housing twice as many positions as the previous level.
Each matrix level in a Hedgefinity 2×8 matrix functions as a cycler tier.
Positions in each tier are filled via subsequent position purchases, made by existing and newly recruited Hedgefinity affiliates.
Once all positions in a matrix level tier are filled, a “cycle” commission is generated and the next level is unlocked.
Commission payments across Hedgefinity’s 2×8 matrix cycler are as follows:
- level 1 (positions cost $11, 2 positions to fill) – $10 cycle commission and unlocks level 2
- level 2 (4 positions to fill) – $20 cycle commission and unlocks level 3
- level 3 (8 positions to fill) – $80 cycle commission and unlocks level 4
- level 4 (16 positions to fill) – $640 cycle commission and unlocks level 5
- level 5 (32 positions to fill) – $10,240 cycle commission and unlocks level 6
- level 6 (64 positions to fill) – $327,680 cycle commission and unlocks level 7
- level 7 (128 positions to fill) – $41,943,040 cycle commission
Note that the Hedgefinity website mentions an either divine level tier but provides no further information.
Also note that Hedgefinity pays an additional $5 commission is paid per affiliate personally recruited.
Hedgefinity affiliate membership is free, however at least one $11 matrix position purchase is required to participate in the attached MLM opportunity.
All payments in Hedgefinity are made in bitcoin (both paid and received).
As evidenced by website article titles such as “What Are Bitcoins? & How Do Bitcoins Work?”, Hedgefinity is pitched at people who have no idea what cryptocurrency is.
Probably because Hedgefinity pitches their scheme as a way to see “how $11 gets turned into $42 Million”.
To put that into perspective, at a bare minimum you’d need 3.8 million $11 payments to satisfy just one $42 million commission payout.
And that’s not factoring in the referral commission, which eats almost half of deposited funds (so you’re looking at closer to 8 million payments).
In reality nobody is going to get anywhere near marking $42 million in Hedgefinity.
So why go to the effort of even trying to pitch ridiculous numbers at gullible idiots?
Well, for Hedgefinity’s anonymous admin and early adopters, they make their money being at the top of the company-wide matrix.
This ensures the majority of deposited funds are funneled up to them.
The Hedgefinity admin also keeps $1 of every $11 deposit. They also keep funds trapped in matrix levels that haven’t filled yet when Hedgefinity inevitably collapses.
Despite billing itself as a “social enterprise business funding platform”, Hedgefinity is nothing more than an $11 buy-in Ponzi scheme.
Hedgefinity affiliates invest $11 on the promise of a $42 million ROI.
That ROI is paid out of subsequently invested funds, making Hedgefinity a Ponzi scheme.
As with all MLM Ponzi schemes, when affiliate recruitment dries up so too will newly invested funds.
Being a matrix-based scheme this will see affiliate’s stuck in stalled matrices.
Once enough matrices stall company-wide, an irreversible collapse is triggered.
The math behind a Ponzi scheme guarantees that when it collapses the majority of participants lose money.
