A British Geological Survey chart shows the seismic activity during the UK earthquake last week

SHOCKING figures show there have been 21 earthquakes in the UK in the last 50 days, including the biggest in ten years, with the majority striking Wales.

The news that Brits are living on shaky ground comes after a 4.6 quake struck in Wales last week, and was reported to be the strongest to have hit the UK in 10 years.

The British Geological Survey has registered the specific location of the quake to be the village of Cwmllynfell near Swansea.

BGS figures show that four others struck in Cwmllynfell the same day.

The 4.6 quake at 2:31pm was followed by a 1.8 quake at 2.35pm, a 1.2 quake at 3.09pm, a 1.5 quake at 4.27pm and a 2.2 quake at 11.17pm. Read Tom’s complete article <<<HERE>>>


China unveils plans for hypersonic jet that can fly anywhere in the world in three hours.

new hypersonic aircraft could ferry passengers anywhere in the world in under three hours.

Travelling at up to 3,800 miles an hour, more than six times the speed of a typical commercial jet and twice as fast as a supersonic aircraft, it has been developed for the Chinese military, but could be used for passengers.

Researchers from the Chinese Academy of Sciences say they have tested a scaled-down model of the hypersonic jet in a wind tunnel, where it reached a top speed of 5,343 km/ph.

Writing in the Physics, Mechanics and Astronomy journal, Cui Kai said: “It will take only a couple of hours to travel from Beijing to New York at hypersonic speed.

“This could provide more convenient and efficient transportation than present subsonic airplanes for long-distance journeys in future.’

The aircraft will have two sets of wings that use one another to reduce turbulence and drag.

What is hypersonic travel?

It is loosely defined as “Mach 5”, or five times faster than the speed of sound, which would be 6,200km per hour at sea level

Why is it difficult to achieve?

In hypersonic travel, temperatures get so hot that the air molecules become unstable and start losing electrons. The air begins to change chemically and becomes an electrically-charged field

 Dear Subscribers and guests.

D9Clube as we all know has vanished. Please be careful with all the other Crypto and ICO garbage out there.

I will keep this site going but it will go in a slightly different direction. I will report and write about news that may be of importance to you and actually to all of us. Whether it is how to avoid the latest MLM scam or why China has ‘Ghost Cities,’ there will always be something to go ‘hmmmm’ about.

Thanking everyone for their support so far.

D9 Clube Arrests

It has passed November 25, 2017.

Authorities are taking action.

It has passed November 25, 2017.

The Authorities continue to close in.

Hello everyone.

I received the following image from a loyal subscriber here.

Below is the link:

https://scontent.fnbo5-1.fna.fbcdn.net/v/t1.0-9/fr/cp0/e15/q65/23722796_2002611706641001_6402744854955974008_n.jpg?efg=eyJpIjoidCJ9&oh=8e47cda5b9575853a5e7913c8883eca0&oe=5A8C62E6

I could not fully verify it online through the ‘Daily Monitor’ online newspaper but I’m posting it anyway.

Let me know what you think. Personally, I do not know why the authorities are not going after the top first?

Next Post…will be in a few days.

Guess what?

I don’t feel too, too good today.

I can’t believe I fell for this.

Yet another Scam.

It starts with an email:

If you click on ‘Claim Your Bitcoin Gold’

You will end up the following URL:

https://blockchain-bitcoin.gold/news.php?a=how+to+claim+your+bitcoin+gold

https://blockchain-bitcoin.gold/#/

 

To be updated.

Please do not fall for this after a Bitcoin Fork.

I did fall for this and instead of getting free bitcoingold, this organization relieved me of not only my bitcoin, but also my bitcoincash and ethereum.

Play safe.

It can get a bit confusing, but the main point to remember is this:

When a Bitcoin fork occurs, anyone holding any amount of Bitcoins will get the same amount of the new currency as well. This doesn’t happen automatically; you do need to claim these coins, but each new coin has a different claiming mechanism, and not all of them are legitimate.

If you do claim your new coins successfully, you can then hold on to them or sell them if they’re being traded on an exchange. This means that you can basically generate money for nothing; all you did was claim coins from thin air and sell them on an exchange. Easy money! Or is it?

Bitcoin Gold Wallet Scam Sees Fraudsters Steal $3.2 Million

“”A bitcoin gold (BTG) wallet scam recently managed to net over $3.2 million after taking advantage of bitcoin users looking to claim their BTG tokens. A link to the fraudulent MyBTGWallet was, before the scam came to light, placed on bitcoin gold’s website, but was quickly removed once users started noticing their balances were missing.

According to various reports, the website containing the fake wallet essentially encouraged users to upload their private keys or recovery seeds to claim their bitcoin gold….”

The result was a $3.2 million theft, as the scammer behind the website managed to obtain at least $107,000 worth of bitcoin gold, $72,000 of litecoin, $30,000 of ethereum, and $3 million of bitcoin.

Remember, the one rule you should always follow before trying to claim any coins is to move your Bitcoins to a new wallet with a new seed phrase. This move will reduce the chances of you losing your Bitcoin to almost zero.

D9Clube Is A Ponzi/HYIP

Beautifully Giftwrapped In A Very Clever MLM.

Before I start, I would like to say that at the time of publishing this post, I still do not know what is going on with D9Clube. The Site has been down for some time now and access to the back office is non-existent.

What can one do when they shut you out and run away with the bitcoin and the money?

This post is an attempt to get a better understanding of what is going on now not just with D9, but with Internet Money, Alt Coins, Coupons and all the rest of the stuff that has come along with them…

Mainly the Scams and Frauds.

From your loving son


The History of Ponzi

The Namesake: Carlo (charles) Ponzi

The most famous financial pyramid.

The ‘King of Get Rich Quick,’ Charles Ponzi became a millionaire in just six months back in the early 1920’s.

Charles Ponzi was best known for the financial crimes he committed when he conned investors into giving him millions and paid them returns with other investors’ money.

Although he did not invent the scheme that later came to bear his name, Charles Ponzi’s scam was so extensive and initially lucrative that it brought national attention to the fraudulent operation for the first time.

Born Carlo Ponzi on March 3, 1882 in Parma, Italy, he arrived in Boston, USA aboard the  S.S. Vancouver in November 1903. He later told the New York Times that he had gambled most of his money on the voyage to America. “I landed in this Country with $2.50 cash and $1 million in hopes, and those hopes never left me.”

This young immigrant had charm, charisma and confidence. The details of his early life are difficult to verify but it is believed that he was fairly well educated having attended the University Of Rome La Sapienza.


His Early Days

He began working his way taking odd jobs throughout the East Coast. On one particular job he worked as a dishwasher in a restaurant sleeping on the floor and gradually became a waiter. He was fired because he was caught shortchanging the customers and stealing from the restaurant.

In 1907 Charles Ponzi arrived in Montreal, Canada and found a job working as a bank teller for Banco Zarossi. This bank was owned by Louis Zarossi and was very popular with  thousands of Italians who had immigrated to Canada. Ponzi charmed his way and rose to becoming a manager at the bank where he later learned that the bank itself was in trouble.

The bank had made some risky loans that were not being repaid and desperately needed an influx of cash. He also learned that the bank was doing its own early version of a Ponzi Scheme by promising to pay the desperately needed investors 6% interest while the bank was only earning 3%. He realized that  Zarossi had started dipping into the accounts of his customers to pay the investors.


From Rags to Riches

Ponzi eventually found his way to get rich quick using a ‘loophole’ within the postal system. It was completely legitimate and involved the concepts of ‘Arbitrage.’

At the time, it was common for letters going abroad to include an international reply coupon ‘Voucher.’ This voucher could be exchanged for minimum postage back to the country from which the letter was sent. Thus, for example, if I sent my friend in England a letter, I could include a coupon so that he could respond back.

However, because exchange and postal rates fluctuated, there was an opportunity to make a profit. You only had to purchase postal reply coupons cheaply in some foreign country, send them back to the U.S. to swap them out for American stamps of a higher value, then sell these stamps. This arrangement was perfectly legal; it was just cleverly gaming the system. Ponzi started buying and selling postal reply coupons using agents in his native Italy, and he was making a good living doing it.

Unfortunately, whatever mental defect made Ponzi steal from his employers and pass bad checks in the past prompted him to get greedy here, too. He started to recruit investors into his system with the promise of huge returns. He borrowed $500 and with what he had learned at Banco Zarossi, he opened up a Credit Bureau of sorts and began to give obligations to pay $1500 for every $1000 invested within 90 days. The Scheme lasted only about one year.

Is D9Clube a Ponzi Scheme?

Goto: Track the best ways to throw away your money.

Click on image to read a good article from http://unusualinvestments.com HYIP Monitor – Track the Best Ways to Throw Your Money Away

Not only is D9 a Ponzi Scheme, it’s also a Hyip. And to attract members without having to do it online (because it is slow to do it that way), they used the troops on the ground by giftwrapping it in an MLM.

“HYIP” stands for a ‘high yield investment program.’ Here are the Mechanics.

Making it simpler, HYIP’s  in the eyes of the novice investor represents a way to make huge amounts of money in a very short period of time without having to do anything but invest some hard earned money. In a Nutshell, D9 lured their victims into the program under the guise that the D9 club Executive Team were a team of highly trained and respected “Arbitrage Sports Trading’ professionals that could provide an average daily return of 1.8%.

They also included a very comprehensive MLM plan to lure more victims more quickly. Then the final ingredient was the use of Bitcoin because they know that Bitcoin transactions are very difficult to reverse without an escrow service.

The Internet says that Long-term HYIP’s are the projects calculating 0.01% to 5.00% daily.  D9 was claiming 1.8% daily and was completely doable if they actually traded in Arbitrage. (Unfortunately there is no evidence that this company actually traded at all).

Any project giving 5.00% or more can be considered short-term. So what is the attraction? I’ll tell you in a nutshell…’Get Rich Quick.’ Most novice movers will lose. Those with a certain level of expertise will gain. This is a very dangerous game to play.

Please understand that I have always said that ‘to get rich quick, you have to do it slowly.’ Regardless of if you are a seasoned professional or novice in this field or any field for that matter…you must know what you are doing.

Let’s look into some background…because too many people get involved without knowing what they are getting into.


What is a HYIP/PONZI?

10 reasons why you should not

Click on image to read 10-reasons-you-should-avoid-using-hyips

Nearly all HYIP’s work as a Ponzi scheme, meaning they are all pyramids in set-up. More often, a HYIP is closed when the payment amount reaches 85% of the entire amount. What do I mean by this?

Simple.

When the amounts that need to be paid out reaches 85% of the maximum income of the the HYIP Company…It is time to shut down. It is no longer sustainable. The primary reason for this is that these HYIP start-ups are not performing the way they promise to perform. They are not Trading to generate profits.

The more interest rate (return to novice investors) that is offered, the shorter the term of the HYIP run. Please understand this.

The average “lifetime” term of long-term HYIP is about 1 year. We have all encountered this here at D9. Actually they made it past the year mark (approximately 16 months) and they did most of their damage in the last 2 months of their existence orchestrating their exit plan.

The short-term HYIP’s “lifetime” cannot be defined in my opinion but can be verified by my 85% assertion . Every HYIP has its own lifetime. It’s hard to predict the end. That is why short-term HYIP’s are considered to have a higher risk degree than long-term ones and offer a higher rate of return.


Bitcoin is being exploited by Scammers

Bitcoin high yield investment programs, also short Bitcoin HYIPs, may pay you high returns for a small amount you invest in them. These programs are supposed to get the profits by trading forex, stocks and bonds, sports betting and others.

HYIPs pay hourly, daily, weekly or monthly. The daily income rates depend on the HYIP itself and range from 0.5% to 6%. Some even go as far as to claim 10%.

D9Clube was offering a daily return of 1.8% on the purchase of each $2046.00 package based on Sports Trading.

Those of my readers that know me, know that I have always said from the beginning, that if D9 does successful ‘Arbitrage Sports Trading‘ then there will never be a problem.

It works something like this (The Graph above explained):

The lifespan of a HYIP can be divided into three stages.

Phase 1: The Launch after The Pre-Launch

Pre-launch is where people can join for free to position themselves within the organization. In other programs, they can invest a minimum to maximum amount and have for example, ‘founder’ or ‘Premier’ status.

Investors invest Bitcoin through cash and Admin pays the promised percentages. Admin is essentially paying out from their own pocket and the pockets of the founders and early investors at this time and are incurring losses or just breaking even.

Phase 2: The Upswing.

Enough Momentum has been acquired through the planning stages and it is time to pull the trigger.

The SCHEME is now booming and many people are signing in and investing. Many with up to One Hundred Thousand USD plus.

The potential profit of the admin now grows faster than the amount they need to pay daily to the investors. They have reached the Pinnacle. They finally have the money to do for the people what they promised. To turn the investment into regular profit.

And then that’s when most of these ponzies fall apart.

They have made it this far with their shenanigans but now the game is real.

They have sold us on the idea that they are professional traders. But they are not.

Sooner or later, the payouts will stop.

They plan their exit strategy. Can take anywhere from 10 to 40 days plus. D9 was about 40 if not a few more.

During all this time they keep you handcuffed and at ransom while at the same time encouraging to continue to invest and reinvest.

Phase 3: The Fall.

Over time, fewer and fewer people continue investing in the platform. This means, that the potential earning is getting less, due to the fact that the admin needs to pay out a profit daily plus the MLM Bonuses.  Admin decides, that now is the point of maximum earnings for them.

First, admin stops all the payments out of the website, but allows continued investment into the program (sound familiar)?

Remember at D9…Nobody got paid for almost two months but they encouraged people to continue to purchase packages under the guise that they were making the platform even better. Then when they had ‘milked’ the program to the maximum they ran away and closed the website. So they had a run from January 2016 to approximately Septeber 2017.

Note: Most Hyip’s hiding behind an MLM or Network Marketing structure will last much longer than a HYIP on its own. 

This is why the next question is very important:

How To Minimize The Risk?

As seen in the upper graphic, the periods you are going to earn are phase 1 and 2. This means you need to join as early as possible, equivalently, you need not join too late. To find out if the HYIP is in the beginning of phase 2 or at the end is not easy.

Therefore, there are some common rules of thumb on joining hyips:

  • Do your homework. Especially if they are promoting the program through the issuance of a new Alt Coin or new Blockchain Technology. With these, you want to see ‘The White Paper.’
  • Be wary (Like D9) of Company Communication done in only one language other than English.
  • Have anyone that is recruiting you to show the validity of the program.
  • Establish if the program is a HYIP or a HYIP disguised as an MLM. Remember, the ones hiding behind an MLM structure will last much longer.
  • If the Hyip is just a Hyip paying more than 5% daily, then don’t join it after it has been there for more than three weeks.
  • If the hyip is paying between 2.5% and 5.0%, then don’t join it after it has been there for more than five weeks.
  • If the hyip is paying less than 1.5%, then the choice is even harder. The website might pay for a very long time like HashOcean (more than a year), or stop like Business Angels (less than three months).
  • Don’t get Greedy. Most HYIP’s want you to continue to roll over your gains back into the program. Would a better approach not be to extract your initial money and then play their game with their money? and finally,
  • Don’t forget to request your withdrawls as soon as they become available.

Internet Marketers that are trying to earn a living honestly are very small fish in a very large pond. We are basically just the small guys that work under a much larger business group called “The Syndicate.” Yes there is actually such a thing. Read on. This is going to blow your mind.

The Syndicate (Business Group)

Scamworld: The Video

Members of the Syndicate use online advertising, email marketing, affiliate marketing and multi-level marketing to sell “info products”, such as self-published books and videos that purport to teach customers how to get rich through online business.[1] They also do lead generation for pressure-sales telemarketing companies called “boiler rooms“.[1] The Syndicate’s members use the group as a way of coordinating product launches and release dates, and of enhancing perceived credibility through social proof.[1][3] According to Syndicate member Frank Kern, “We all work together, all the top people work together.”[3]

Critic Jason Jones, who blogs as The Salty Droid, has accused the Syndicate of being a cartel that harms customers through price fixing and unfair competition.[1][4]Syndicate member Frank Kern denies this, and claims that the Syndicate’s purpose is to “help the customer have a great experience”.

HYIP Administrators & HYIP Operators

HYIP Administrators.

Click on image to learn more about HYIP Administrators

Click on image to learn more about HYIP Administrators

High Yield Investment Program’s Admin. This term is very common because HYIP Admin is a key person in a high-yield investment project. The term HYIP Admin implies chief executive and even the technical administrator of the site. HYIP Admin is the most important person in the project. Very often a few people hide behind a HYIP Admin. However, the opposite scenario is also true: one person often hides behind many people. Therefore, despite the fact that many programs have pretty solid legends, developed infrastructure and a lot of convincing names, most of the regular online investors do not believe in them. Moreover, because of established attitudes to the “teams” of high-yield investment projects, the concept of “administrator” is also used as regards to the services operating in the HYIP Industry (monitors, forums, blogs, etc). Therefore, very often the employees of such services are called “admins”: Monitor Admin, Forum Admin, Blog Admin.

HYIP Operators.

Warning Signs That Your High-Yield Investment May Be a Scam

Click on Image to link to Zamansky LLC.

High Yield Investment Program Operators .

At least half of the programs that operate in the market were created by professionals in this business. They launch one pyramid after another and sometimes reach the fanatical zeal in cloning and copying projects. By saying “HYIP operators”, I mean those who are engaged in systematic and consistent creation of HYIPs.

HYIP Operators differ from each other and each of them creates projects with their own distinctive features. Some of them prefer having one type of program, some prefer the simultaneous operation of programs of various types. Others do not have more than one project at a time. Fortunately, some HYIP Operators adhere to certain principles in their work and thus it is possible to determine the prospects of such operator’s programs quite accurately.

Are HYIP’s similar to a Ponzi or Pryamid Scheme?

Link to Investor.gov...U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission.

Fraudsters frequently promote pyramid schemes through social media, Internet advertising, company websites, group presentations, conference calls, YouTube videos, and other means…

From: http://www.investopedia.com/ask/answers/09/ponzi-vs-pyramid.asp

Pyramid schemes and Ponzi schemes share many similar characteristics in which unsuspecting individuals are fooled by unscrupulous operators who promise extraordinary returns. However, in contrast to a regular investment, these types of schemes can offer consistent “profits” only as long as the number of investors continue to increase. Ponzi and pyramid schemes are self sustaining as long as cash outflows can be matched by monetary inflows. The basic difference arises in the type of products that schemers offer their clients and the structure of the two ploys.

Ponzi schemes are based on fraudulent investment management services – basically investors contribute money to the “portfolio manager” who promises them a high return, and then when those investors want their money back they are paid out with the incoming funds contributed by later investors. The person organizing this type of fraud is in charge of controlling the entire operation; they merely transfer funds from one client to another and forgo any real investment activities.

On the other hand, a pyramid scheme is structured so that the initial schemer must recruit other investors who will continue to recruit other investors and those investors will then continue to recruit additional investors and so on. Sometimes there will be an incentive that is presented as an investment opportunity, such as the right to sell a particular product. Each investor pays the person who recruited them for the chance to sell this item. The recipient must share the proceeds with those at the higher levels of the pyramid structure.

There are two additional important factors to consider: the only guilty party in the Ponzi and pyramid scheme is the originator of the corrupt business practice, not the participants (as long as they are unaware of the illegal business practices). Secondly, a pyramid scheme differs from a multi-level marketing campaign which offers legitimate products.


Define a Pyramid Scheme

PYRAMID SCHEMES & MLM

Don’t let your Facebook friends fool you: They’re not making money in the multi-level marketing company they keep pitching to you. And you won’t either. Multi-level marketing is not a business. More than 99% of participants in multi-level marketing (MLM) lose money.

A pyramid scheme is defined as an illegal hierarchical business model encouraging investors to recruit new members to the business model by requiring them to invest massive sums of money and then using the money from those new members to pay earlier investors. The base of the pyramid scheme consist of all the new members who provide the majority of the funds which are then given to the earlier investors who are above them, thus you have the pyramid scheme definition

In March 2014, Herbalife, a Los Angeles-based nutritional supplement company, became the newest likely pyramid scheme to be exposed when an official investigation by the United States FTC (Federal Trade Commission) was launched. The investigation began when billionaire hedge fund manager Bill Ackman accused Herbalife of misleading the distributors, selling commodity products at excessively overinflated prices and a huge misrepresentation of sales figures.

Sources indicate that the government will most likely not shut down Herbalife, but instead sanction them with fines up to $50 million dollars for false claims of excessive income to their new investors while refusing to provide documentation to support their claims, unethical lead generations, and false product claims. If nothing else, Herbalife will most likely have to pay for their sins of the past. The FTC is not the only agency that is investigating Herbalife for operating under a pyramid scheme. The Federal Bureau Investigation (FBI) is also investigating Herbalife as well as other entities.

Hi,

My name is Paul.

I am in Ontario, Canada. My little website has opened up a completely new reality for me by allowing me to share with people all around the World. I do not know why, but Africa, somehow has an attraction for me to spend my final years there and I will try to make it there to end my final days. I think it is about maybe meeting up with some of the wonderful people that I am meeting here on this site.

I am saddened (but not surprised) to know that there are so many fraudulent ponzi/hyip/mlm Schemes ravaging the ‘New Frontier’ commonly known as Africa. And, many of these are Ponzi Schemes Using Virtual Currency.

I created this site in early 2016 as an information based utility for the D9 Clube operating out of Bahia, Brazil.  D9 Clube is no more.

D9 Clube was a hoax, it was a Coup. It was a Ponzi.  ‘Arbitrage Sports Trading,’ never occurred.

Most D9’ers that came in toward the middle and end all have their money tied up. Those that re-entered into D9.2 also have their money tied up. Many, that took out loans (Why?) are now in a position placing them unable to repay loans they took out. There is much distress.

Danillo Santana and the crew executed a very elaborate Coup and have vanished. No access to the site, no access to our back offices, nothing.

The SEC writes, “Be suspicious if you don’t receive a payment or have difficulty cashing out your investment. Ponzi scheme organizers sometimes encourage participants to “roll over” promised payments by offering higher investment returns.”

If the company holds your money hostage via convoluted withdrawal requirements, there’s a good chance it’s operating as a ponzi scheme.

This is exactly what D9 Clube did. They kept encouraging people to “Roll’ their money back in to realize higher gains.

What do Zeek Rewards, WCM777, TelexFREE, Cyber Kids, Zhunrize and eAdGear all have in common? They were all shut down as ponzi schemes AND they all had auto-reinvestment components. In legitimate network marketing programs, rewards go out based on volume. There’s no need for the company to hold YOUR money. If you earn it, you get it. In a ponzi scheme, they need to keep cash inside the system to protect themselves in the event enrollments (money coming in) slow down. What do these requirements look like? Daily withdrawal limits, percentage of your commissions automatically used to purchase more “product,” hold periods for when you can actually sell your “Coins” after purchase, etc. These measures are taken to keep cash inside the system, protecting itself in the event of a crash.

With that being said, we all know now that hundreds of thousands of people (i’m just guessing) were left holding an empty bag as a result of the D9 Ponzi.

Enough about D9. It makes my stomach turn.

Let’s get back to “Is Africa Ready for Bitcoin?”


Africa is Ripe for Bitcoin & Cryptocurrencies

South Africa Has Been Among the Slowest of the Advanced Economies to Develop Cryptocurrency Regulations

Click on image to link to www.news.bitcoin.com Some great articles and views.

Cryptocurrencies are gradually being discovered in Africa. In countries like South Africa, Ghana, Kenya, Botswana, Zimbabwe and Nigeria, there is a semblance of digital currencies, primarily bitcoin, taking roots.

These countries have got Exchanges and Start-ups in the crypto space, and their businesses are recognizing the significance of Cryptocurrencies in fostering cross-border trade and payment. As a matter of reality, there are more than 1000 merchants accepting Bitcoin in South Africa.

Moreover, the infrastructure for the takeoff of digital tokens is solid. Telecommunication liberalisation across the continent has enabled internet accessibility remarkably.

Figures from GSMA indicates that half of the population in Africa subscribed to mobile telephony. Also, the statistics intimate that for the past two years smartphone usage in the continent has doubled to reach 226 million.


Termed the Money Transfer Protocol of the internet…Interviews from CNN

Does Bitcoin/Blockchain make sense for international money transfer?

Click on image to link to www.saveonsend.com Does Bitcoin/Blockchain make sense for international money transfer?

Below are two Interviews that I have sourced through CNN.

In the first, CNN spoke to Werner Van Rooyen, Head of Business Development and Growth at LUNO, the biggest Bitcoin exchange in Africa about how Bitcoin and Cryptocurrencies are naturally poised to offer Africans financial inclusion.

Please read carefully and leave behind some comments on the contents of the interview.

 

Interview number 1:

CNN: Has Bitcoin Anything to Offer Africa?

A very good link to techmoran.com

Click on image for a good link to Techmoran dot Com. Good articles and insights into Crtptocurrency.

Werner van Rooyen:

Absolutely. There is a huge potential for Bitcoin in Africa. Many Africans could move straight to a cryptocurrency, like Bitcoin, or a bank of the future, such as Luno.

Much of the existing financial infrastructure is inefficient: banks and branches are expensive, currency transfers can often be expensive and slow and most of the developing world is still unbanked.

 

There is the potential for Africans to leapfrog some of the existing financial services, in the same way, that many Africans skipped the part of owning a cumbersome and expensive land line and went straight to owning a mobile phone.

CNN:

Most African currencies are reeking of inflation. Does this make Bitcoin attractive as a store of value to Africans?

Werner van Rooyen:

Bitcoin has proven to be the best-performing currency in the world in 2016. I believe more investors in high-inflation countries are looking at alternative asset classes, things like gold or Bitcoin.

Bitcoin has been found to be largely uncorrelated to other asset classes. With most asset classes, there is a correlation (or inverse correlation), like when a country’s stock market goes down, the currency’s exchange rate usually also follows, same for the housing market. Bitcoin is largely uncorrelated, meaning it is becoming an attractive alternative to many investors.

CNN:

What do you make of some African governments tagging Bitcoin as a tool for terrorism and money laundering?

Werner van Rooyen:

I think this is mostly fueled by incorrect data, click-driven media hype and lack of understanding about Bitcoin. Firstly, I should say that the biggest facilitator of organised crime, including money laundering and terror financing, is cold hard cash.

Many other modern inventions, such as the Internet, Twitter, cars and cellphones, are currently being used to facilitate crime. It doesn’t mean that we should shut these technological advances down (I doubt anyone is seriously proposing it), but rather that the good that comes with it outweighs the bad.

Lastly, there is very little proof that Bitcoin is currently being used for these nefarious purposes. Remember: Bitcoin is only pseudo-anonymous: all Bitcoin transactions ever conducted are recorded in the Blockchain.

Studies by the UK government looking into the best channels for laundering money has consistently found the risk of Bitcoin being used as very low.

CNN:

Adoption in Africa is irritatingly slow. How do we push penetration?

Werner van Rooyen:

Education and user experience. At Luno, we’re doing a lot to tackle this. Our aim is to make Luno the easiest place to buy, sell and learn about Bitcoin. Something which is no trivial task, but we’re seeing fantastic growth in Africa, especially for our mobile wallet. We’ve also created a Learning Portal to help new people with some basic concepts about Bitcoin.

CCN:

Do you think Africans will finally embrace Bitcoin?

Werner van Rooyen:

I don’t think they will, I think they already have! We are seeing fantastic adoption in places like South Africa and Nigeria and I’m sure it will ripple to other African nations too.

CCN:

What makes Bitcoin more expensive in Africa than anywhere else?

Werner van Rooyen:

Bitcoin is a very liquid instrument: it’s easy to move around the world. This, in theory, means that it can and will trade at roughly the same exchange rate, wherever it is available.

Obviously, there are many factors at play, but since the price is determined by supply and demand, it means that in some places where the demand is low, it may trade at a lower price (and vice versa).

Another issue is connectivity: to transact in Bitcoin, you need an Internet connection and ideally a smartphone. Many places are still underserved by the telcos, but this is changing fast. The price of smartphones is also continuously getting cheaper.

CNN:

Could you paint a picture of the future of Bitcoin in Africa?

Werner van Rooyen:

It’s really too soon to tell, but what we’re seeing already today is really fantastic and I believe Bitcoin has a lot of potential in emerging markets in Africa and abroad.


Interview Number 2

Click on image to link to "Bitcoin Africa"

Click on image to link to “How to buy Bitcoin in Africa.”

CNN also spoke to Adewale Bankole, President of the Bastiat Society and Humaniq Ambassador of Nigeria about the future of Cryptocurrencies in Africa.

Adewale Bankole:

Africa is an emerging market with lots of opportunities. People have been failed over time by fiat money that doesn’t hold value. It is ardouous for our local business people because the local currency doesn’t hold value and most of the time it has to be changed to dollars in order to access International Markets for raw materials and machinery for example. However, with Cryptocurrencies holding the same vallue Globally, it will become more and more seamless to transact business by Africans Globally. This will absolutely create a circle of human and economic development in Africa in the long run.

CNN:

So, it’s Africa that has a lot to offer Bitcoin and other Cyrptocurrencies and not the other way around?

Adewale Bankole:

Yes, the market is here for cryptocurrencies in Africa. Africa has lots to offer Bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies, simply because Africa needs an alternative to the weak and not – always – available fiat money. All products of cryptocurrencies will be well embraced if promoted in Africa. As we speak the vacuum for alternative means of payment is obvious in Africa at the moment.

CNN:

And do you believe Africans would embrace Bitcoin if the necessary awareness is created?

Adewale Bankole:

Absolutely. Once they see that it works. Africans really want something that works with value. The missing link here is the awreness about the technology.

 CNN:

Do you think that the necessary infrastructure is there to make it thrive?

Adewale Bankole:

Yes, infrastructure is the key. However, average Africans have smartphones these days, which means that Bitcoin and other Digital Currency transactions can be done. Moreso, with their advent of their Fintech App, has made Africa a most fertile land for Cyrptocurrencies.

CNN:

From your perspective, do you see any challenges?

Adewale Bankole:

Sure. There are always going to be challenges from State and or Central Banks. Definately, they will feel threathened that Cryptocurencies will send them out of the Money Market Monopolisation. But with the persistent success of cryptocurrency transactions in Africa that are slowly solving problems and raising human development, cryptocurrency will surely take over.

CNN:

Penetration and adoption is painfully slow. What is the way forward?

Adewale Bankole:

At this point, I think that a wise governement in Africa that cares about FDI and overall economic growth should just adopt cryptocurrency and let it work in their respective countries. I beleive adoption will rise steadily once the cryptocurrency companies spend more in sensitising African business people and Africans in general. It is obvious that people want an alternative to fiat money. People are tired of working hard for money and working harder to transact with it which is the current situation with fiat money in Africa. This is what I see on a daily basis.

CNN:

What about Civil Society? Do they have a role here?

Adewale Bankoe:

Yes, Civil Society has a special role to play because especially Civil Society promotes business.

Civil Society works to promote human development, and I think that they should be a major partner in this Cryptocurrency drive in Africa, since most Civil Society Organizations already have an area of interest and keen followers.

CNN:

Finally, why will you choose cryptocurrency over fiat currency?

Adewale Bankoe:

That’s obvious.

The ‘store of value,’

‘Easy to transact with,’

‘Accepted Globally,’ and

‘Appreciating progressively.’

CNN:

Thank you.

Tanzania is the latest African Country that is embracing the tecnological currency revolution as it shows some impressive growth, despite the small numbers.

In Africa, it is Kenya, Nigeria and South Africa that are pioneers of Cryptocurrenency, but as the World of Bitcoin spreads, even places like tanzania are starting to show growth.

“The main hindrance to adoption of Bitcoin technology, which we do not often talk about, is the lack of awareness and skills to adopt the technology. Bitcoin currently is a sophisticated technology compared to the simplicity of existing platforms like M-Pesa, which my grandmother who does not even speak English can use. The Bitcoin technology needs to get simpler or integrate into other simpler platforms. We also need to get better at educating Africans about this technology.” – John Karanga of BitHub.Africa

Latest News D9 Club

Latest News D9Clube

Hello everyone.

The following ‘Bits and Pieces’ of information are trickling in from wonderful subscribers in Kenya and other parts of the World. I am extremely grateful of my subscribers as we all try to move forward here with the D9Clube…meaning whether we want to continue or not.

For everyone to have a proper understanding of what is going on, we all need to know and understand the new D9Clube terminology.

Update October 24, 2017.

D9Clube, Danillo Santana and and his band of co-conspiritors have vanished. The website and back offices are not accessible to any one.

So, the article below is not going to be any value other than History.


First and foremost, I am going to ‘label’ the initial D9Clube program from January 2016 to end of July 2017, as D9.1

Anything to do with the D9Clube after August 1, 2017, I am going to refer to as D9.2.

Everyone that accepted the ‘Terms and Conditions’ of the new D9.2 program, now have access to their own back office.

So please,

Everyone log-in to their back office.

Goto:

https://office.d9clube.com/login

and you will see the following:

Now Enter your following information: (See above).

  1. Enter your login username
  2. Enter your password
  3. ‘Check’ I’m not a Robot
  4. Click on ‘Entrar.’

And you will see the following page below:

Now you need to click on ‘Access my statement.’ See the red arrow on the green pane. Click on it

and you will see a page very much like this:

You will see 4 different Balances on this page. It is important to understand what each of these balances are and what they relate to.

I my case as shown in the illustration, all of my balances are ZERO.  Different people will have different amounts showing.

  1. D9 Balance – This is the Balance that you can make ‘withdrawals from.’ Minimum $300.00, Maximum $1,000.00 weekly.
  2. VIP Balance – This is the balance that is equivalent to your Bitcoin involvement. This value is in Bitcoin.
  3. VIP B Balance – is reserved for those that want to purchase the $5,000.00 package.
  4. D9B Balance – is the balance that has been carried forward into D9.2 from D9.1

Now, Let’s move forward…based on what we have.

If you have decided not to renew your main pre-existing account, no weekly DLD9 Payments or Direct Referral bonuses will be generated from those accounts. However, you will still receive funds from the Binary and bonuses from any new activation of new accounts under your existing account.

As a Networker/Builder it is advisable to register and  activate new purchase packages linked to your main pre-existing account to generate the binary, indirect and residual amounts.

NO DIRECT REFERRAL BONUSES WILL BE PAID FROM THOSE NEW ACCOUNT ACTIVATIONS.

Balance D9-B

The Balance D9-B was created exclusively to return the value to the associates who did not recover their original purchase package amount. This can be any amount up to $2046.00 per package.

Balance D9-B cannot be requested as a withdrawal. Balance D9-B can only be used for existing account renewals and activations of new accounts.

Balance D9-B may be added to Balance d9 in the activation of a package. In the renewal of an Existing Package or in the activation of a new package, the maximum percentage of balance D9-B that can be used is 50%.

BALANCE D9-B DOES NOT HAVE AN EXPIRATION DATE.

Renewal Options to Receive DLD9

Those who have received the full $2046 of Balance d9-b, may use $1024.50 of this balance and will need to buy an additional $1024.50 in VIP Balance (Bitcoin) to activate a new Gold + account.

There will still be $1021.50 of Balance D9-b that can be sold or used to activate new accounts.

Those who receive $2046 of Balance D9-B, and do not want to reactivate or register new people, they can sell half of the D9-B Balance to an Upline or Downline member. This way, they will have the funds required to buy VIP Balance(Bitcoin) and reactivate their Gold+ package. Another way, which is a little bit more difficult, would be to exchange Balance D9-B for VIP Balance, to be able to buy a new Gold+ Package.

Career Plan Points and The Net Work Tree:

With the restart of D9Clube.2, the points of the Career Plan will still be maintained.

The Career Plan continues as the same as before. The rewards will be delivered at the company’s 2 year event in March 2018.

Due to all of the adjustments that have been made, the D9Clube claims that they have become the most solid Company among all companies in the Digital Marketing Arena. They will encourage all of their associates to make weekly withdrawals (minimum $300, Maximum $1000.00) to their respective Bitcoin Accounts.

Any associates that are no longer interested in being part of the D9Clube can sell their respective D9 Balances. D9.2 anticipates that in the beginning, most people will put up their D9-B balances up for sale first. They believe that by October 31st, all D9-B balances will have been purchased from all D9 members and non-members.

I am told…

That once each purchase account has received a net gain of $6241.00, then that purchase account has to be re-activated using the methods outlined above. In my opinion only, this raises yet another ‘redflag’ that the company is not using the funds generated from existing members to create profit on the markets to pay out the responsibilities on each package. Even though D9.2 has control now, they still have to perform to generate profits in order to pay out to their members without relying on new members coming in.

Please see video tuturials below to see what they are supposed to be doing:

Also, before leaving you here, I would like you to look at the sustainability and viability of this project.

I did some homework to see if it could be done.

Please see below:

Is The D9 Project Sustainable?

Sustainability & Viability

A question that many of us will have is “How can this D9 program maintain such payouts and still be around a few years from now?”

The answer lies in “Arbitrage Betting,” or more precisely, “Arbitrage Trading.”

Arbitrage Trading is the only way to make constant profits from “Sports Betting.” You don’t even need to have an interest in sports or betting to take advantage of an Arbitrage Bet. Arbitrage is a trading technique that uses the difference in the price (odds) to make instant profit. It has been used for a very long time in financial markets, which can be difficult for non-professionals to access.

Read More Here

Unlike other MLM and Networking programs that rely solely on the recruitment of new members to pay the previous members (Read About Charles Ponzi Here), the D9 Club has a team of “Traders” including the Owner and CEO, that specialize in Arbitrage Sports Trading.

Let’s have a look at a Gold Plus package ($1996.00) that belongs to an Affiliate that does not participate in the Recruiting aspect of the D9 Compensation and Program.

The cost of the Gold Plus Package is $1996.00.

The Maximum Direct Referral Bonus paid out to the Affiliate that sold the package is $170.00 (50% of the 340 points).

The maximum payable in Binary Commissions would be $408.00 (40% of 340 points X 6 levels deep divided by 2 legs = $136.00 X 6 = $816.00 divided by 2 legs = $408.00).

The Indirect Referral Bonus paid out on six levels is $58.00.

This would leave a balance of $1360.00 for the D9 Traders to generate the $170.00 weekly required to pay the holder in due course of this Gold Plus Package for 52 weeks.

Arbitrage Sports Trading is a seven day per week platform. This would mean that the traders are required to generate $24.28 per day using the $1360.00 to sustain this 1 particular package. If we were to divide the amount required ($24.28) by the amount available ($1360.00), we would see that the Traders need to generate an ROI (Return on Investment) of only 1.8% per day.

1.8% per day ROI in the hands of a Competent Trader is very reasonable. Would you not agree?

The D9 program not only seems Viable, it also seems to be completely Sustainable. 

Listen, people.

Was D9.1 a scam? Yes I think it was because all the profits were taken by top leaders through their personal accounts and never reached Danillo Santana and D9.1.

So those ‘Top Leaders” scammed all of us and ran away with the money. They are nowhere to be found.

However, Danillo is still here.  I do not know this man, so I cannot vouch for him. The fact that he is still here, does say something.

Now, if he is setting up many more millions into another ‘Scam’…I cannot be sure of.

You and I are our own ‘Network Marketing’ Control Board.

I, on this site, simply try to provide information. Your actions are your own.

Here’s what I think….If you have come across this post, then reply to it.

Let’s get as much feedback as possible to move things forward in a proper manner based on the options given to us above.

Hopefully, this makes sense.

Kindest regards,

Paul.

IS D9CLUB DEAD?

iMAGE READS 'iS d9 CLUB DEAD'

Is the D9 Club Dead?

Updated October 24, 2017.

Yes, the D9Clube is Dead.

Hi, Everyone.

Please forgive me for not writing earlier, but I have been waiting just like everyone else to see how one should move further.

As we all know, the original D9clube (let’s call it D9.1) started to wind down during the last three weeks of July with hopes of rejuvenation in August with the new and improved D9.2.

Actually by August 7th, D9.2 was up and running.

My biggest concern from the beginning and even to today is that if anyone is operating a ‘Global’ business, why would it not be done in the Universal Language of English?

Please leave your thoughts in the comments section below.

I think that the biggest and most urgent question that we are all asking is…Did we get ‘scammed’ out of our money?

From what I have learned so far, I can say only yes, and no.

I can only use myself as an example to see how it may affect others and their story.

I purchased a package from D9.1 in February 2017. My reasoning was that I cannot write objectively about this concept unless I am involved with it. The concept of ‘Arbitrage Sports trading’ see the video tutorials here

http://d9club.siterubix.com/sports-arbitrage-video-guide

is what got me involved to seek further knowledge and ultimately set up an Information Website.

I am not a professional MLM or Network Marketing Specialist, but I do take some risks in programs that are ‘Passive.’ D9.1 said that I did not have to do any recruiting and that on my purchase package of $2046.00, I would earn $170.00 per week for 52 weeks which would give me a net gain of $6,241.00 over one year.

To me, this was completely viable based on ‘Arbitrage Sports Trading,’ and as long as they were ‘Trading’ to generate profits, this program could be sustainable.

See my thoughts on sustainability of the program here:

http://d9club.siterubix.com/is-the-d9-project-sustainable

Right from the ‘Get Go,’ I told people here in Canada, that the D9.1 platform did not have a ‘seamless’  payment and joining process and this was a huge ‘red flag.’ Not too many listened because of the ‘outlandish’ amounts of money that one could make.

Those ‘Outlandish’ amounts of money were only made by the leaders and Danillo Santana and we were left holding the bag. (More on this in another post as I gather my information).

From the information that I have, D9.1 had huge amounts of cash flowing, but not through the company. It all went through the hands of a few top distributors who can no longer be found and even more importantly, some high level sub distributors that have turned their backs on their downlines.

All I can say is D9.1 is a complete MESS and I am told that by March of next year, refunds will be coming to those that were ‘messed up in the process.’

We can only wait and see.

The only ‘ray’ of light I see so far is that Danillo Santana did not run away and is trying to bring his vision to light through D9.2.

As more information becomes available to me, I will write and share what I know about D9.2 and what requires to be done to recover our funds.

Please leave your thoughts in the comments below as it will help me to help you.

Also feel free to subscribe to this website by going here:

Welcome To – D9Clube Digital Entrepreneurship Scam

On The Subject of Me…

Updated January 2018.

Hi, my name is Paul and I welcome you to my Digital Entrepreneurs site.

I am a former Professional Chef and my experience in the Hospitality Industry has spanned almost forty years.

I am a regular guy who used to have regular jobs and at one time owned and operated my own restaurant with my now ex-wife (I never re-married). I have one grown son attending University where he is pursuing his ambition in ‘Sports Medicine.’ My Son and Ex-Wife live in Calgary, Alberta.

I now live a simple lifestyle without too many distractions in a humble and quiet setting and I have been blessed with a very trusted circle of friends.

I have also been blessed with one older brother, one older sister, four nephews and one niece. Dad passed away in 2013 (may his soul rest in peace). Mom is still with us but requires some special attention that neither of us kids can any longer provide sufficiently.

The original theme behind this site was to show savvy and like minded people how to get involved with the D9Clube of Sports Traders and to also show them about some of the tools they would need to make their digital online journey easier.

Arbitrage is a concept that has always fascinated me.

In economics and financearbitrage (US: /ˈɑːrbɪtrɑːʒ/UK: /ˈɑːbɪtrɪ/UK: /ˌɑːbɪˈtrɑːʒ/) is the practice of taking advantage of a price difference between two or more markets: striking a combination of matching deals that capitalize upon the imbalance, the profit being the difference between the market prices. When used by academics, an arbitrage is a (imagined, hypothetical, thought experiment) transaction that involves no negative cash flow at any probabilistic or temporal state and a positive cash flow in at least one state; in simple terms, it is the possibility of a risk-free profit after transaction costs. For instance, an arbitrage is present when there is the opportunity to instantaneously buy low and sell high. Read more here: ‘Arbitrage Trading.’  

Sports Arbitrage Trading can be regarded as one of the hottest sources of income on The Internet. Put simply, Sports Arbitrage Trading is the action of wagering on both sides of a game at different Sports Books to guarantee a profit no matter the outcome of a game. Put more simply, by backing all competing sides of a sporting event at different Bookmakers using the highest odds available, Traders can set up “probability situations” where each outcome will result in winnings greater than the total amounts wagered.

These probability situations arise from a difference in opinion about the fair odds of an event by bookmakers, and one bookmaker has given the favorite higher than usual odds, while the other bookmakers have given given the underdog higher than usual odds. Individually neither bookmaker will incur a loss. However, if you take the combination of the two or more higher than usual odds, it is possible to wager on all outcomes so that no matter who wins the sports event, ‘Trader Winnings’ will cover all bets completely and return a profit. Sounds simple right?

Unfortunately, Arbitrage Sports Trading is not as easy as it seems.


D9Clube Launches in Early 2016

Link to a blog hosted by Linda.

Click on this image to get another view of the D9Clube History.

For that reason, the D9Clube of Traders headed by a Danillo Santana launched the D9Clube in early 2016. They started in Bahia, Brazil and all of their marketing materials were in Portuguese.

It looked like they had a good plan and concept but it was not easy to decipher through the language barrier.

You can read another version of what D9Clube was by clicking on the D9Clube image.

They went into the European and African markets in September 2016 and came to the US and Canada in January 2017. By now they were Worldwide and had attracted many of the top leaders in the MLM/Network Marketing Communities.

I bought one of their packages in Q1 2017 mostly because of my interest in Arbitrage and also to create my first information website. You see, I am a mature student enrolled in an Online Certification Program.

You can view my Wealthy Affiliate University profile here.

Creating this website for those who do not speak or understand the Latin languages was my first project at WAU. This site was created as an information site only and has nothing to do with nor has any connections with the official D9Clube of Sports Traders.

As we all know now, D9Clube and its crew of thieves are long gone. I can only guess how many have been negatively affected by this very sophisticated Scam.

I have decided to leave this Site open for now as it has a lot of very valuable information on it.

Certain content will be moved to another more secure site as I progress through my learnings at Wealthy Affiliate University.

Make notes and feel free to leave comments and questions on the various pages or contact me direct: paulmindra.wau@gmail.com

I’ll see you on the inside, and hope that you find the content and opportunities contained within not only helpful but also useful. I look forward to learning, sharing and serving with you as we all move forward here.

Kindest regards,

Paul.

Let’s have a look at a Gold Plus package ($1996.00) that belongs to an Affiliate that does not participate in the Recruiting aspect of the D9 Compensation and Program.

The cost of the Gold Plus Package is $1996.00.

The Maximum Direct Referral Bonus paid out to the Affiliate that sold the package is $170.00 (50% of the 340 points).

The maximum payable in Binary Commissions would be $408.00 (40% of 340 points X 6 levels deep divided by 2 legs = $136.00 X 6 = $816.00 divided by 2 legs = $408.00).

The Indirect Referral Bonus paid out on six levels is $58.00.

This would leave a balance of $1360.00 for the D9 Traders to generate the $170.00 weekly required to pay the holder in due course of this Gold Plus Package for 52 weeks.

Arbitrage Sports Trading is a seven day per week platform. This would mean that the traders are required to generate $24.28 per day using the $1360.00 to sustain this 1 particular package. If we were to divide the amount required ($24.28) by the amount available ($1360.00), we would see that the Traders need to generate an ROI (Return on Investment) of only 1.8% per day.

1.8% per day ROI in the hands of a Competent Trader is very reasonable. Would you not agree?

The D9 program not only seems Viable, it also seems to be completely Sustainable.
