Ponzi Scheme

Par Cryptomcmillan1 | Mis à jour le May 24, 2020
A Ponzi scheme is also referred to as pyramid scheme, and typically takes the form of an investment scheme which pays existing investors with funds collected from new investors. Ponzi schemes usually come with the promise of high returns and little risk, while requiring members to actively recruit more members to join the scheme. Once recruitment stops the schemes usually go bust as they run out of funds to pay existing members.
