Crypto Trading’s website domain (“cryptotrading.biz”) was privately registered on August 20th, 2020.
In an attempt to appear legitimate, Crypto Trading provides an incorporation certificate for “CryptoTrading LTD” on its website.
CryptoTrading LTD was incorporated in the UK on August 28th, 2020.
UK incorporation is dirt cheap and effectively unregulated. It is a favored jurisdiction for scammers looking to incorporate dodgy companies.
For the purpose of performing MLM due-diligence, UK incorporation is meaningless.
At the time of publication Alexa ranks Russia (12%), Venezuela (7%) and Egypt (6%), as the top three sources of traffic to Crypto Trading’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.

Crypto Trading represents it generates external revenue via
well-diversified intelligent portfolios that generates secure revenue.
No evidence of these portfolios is provided. Nor is there evidence of external revenue of any kind being used to pay advertised returns.
Crypto Trading’s business model also fails the Ponzi logic test.
If Crypto Trading’s anonymous admin(s) were actually capable of legitimately generating a consistent 3.6% daily return, what do they need your money for?
Even a modest capital amount compounded daily at 3.6% doesn’t take long to turn into a fortune.
Furthermore Crypto Trading misrepresents their basic UK incorporation as a financial regulatory equivalent.
Crypto Trading claims both to be a “registered investment platform” and “registered finance company”.
Neither is true. Securities in the UK are regulated by the FCA.
Crypto Trading is not registered with the FCA or any other financial regulator.
As it stands the only verifiable source of revenue entering Crypto Trading is new investment.
Using new investment to pay affiliates a daily 3.6% ROI makes Crypto Trading a Ponzi scheme.
As with all MLM Ponzi schemes, once affiliate recruitment dries up so too will new investment.
This will starve Crypto Trading of ROI revenue, eventually prompting a collapse.
The math behind Ponzi schemes guarantees that when they collapse, the majority of participants lose money.
