Golden Way Review: the first clue about this platform being a Ponzi is anonymity, zero published trades or profit portfolio, and no regulation.
You can spot the flimsy excuse of a multi-trader that is supposedly the Golden Way if you keep a tab on the crackdown on Ponzi (especially the ones operating on the referral-reward level).
And for that matter, lots of scammed investors reveal that the platform merely hides behind dubbed MLM reward schemes to sell its image as a sensational trade aggregator.
Our Golden Way Review explains crucial parts of the loyalty packages (which merely spurs the recruitment on the platform), emphasizing its semblance to proven MLM triangle schemes. Read on below for details.

Golden Way Review: What Do We Know About the Company?
The question ought to be, what does anyone know about the company? To which the answer is nothing.
Neither the Golden Way official website nor the company’s affiliates provide a shred of information about the business roadmap. However, the company seems to have booted frontend operations in early 2020. So, here is the gist.
The website is an investment tableau, with investors hoping to get profits from a daily, weekly, or monthly plan. It is the same give-one-take-two template all over.
Golden Way does not offer any products, no schedules for NFT arts, crypto mining, or HOLDLER hype. What do you get on the site? Nothing short of a bonus grid. If you sign up for a Golden Way partnership, you enter any of the several weekly or monthly earning schemes (which typically caps incomes after a month).
As it happens, promoters are afield, recruiting people to a mountebank’s idea of a passive income. The deal in the offing is to earn 10%-19% according to position on the triangle hierarchy. You can guess how long the stint lasts until it runs out of hype. It won’t be the first botched pyramid.
Our Golden Way Review finds zero information about any participatory profit-tied activity on the site. So, it puts paid to any hopes of acquiring a resalable product from the company.
Now, what’s left? There is still the affiliate option. See below for how it works.
Golden Way Affiliate Compensation
The call price for the lowest Golden Way membership plan is 50 EUR (you will have to cede 20% of profits as a withdrawal fee). You can invest more to increase your profit margin. Below are the available tiers.

See the following section of our Golden Way Review for the bonus/loyalty grid.
Bonus Grid, Unilevel Commission
As we mentioned previously, Golden Way is a full-blown multi-level Ponzi. The trademark MLM unilevel reward grid strikes as a core bonus leverage on Golden Way.
How does a unilevel grid work?
Your referral(s) stay on the first level. Subsequent levels boot similarly by placing referrals below an affiliate in a higher tier, with the complete arrangement branching out like latticework.

Note that the above plan depends on real-time trade activity supposedly run by Golden Way. But is that the case? The short answer is no. See below for reasons.
Golden Way Review: Verdict, Scam, or Legit?
The deal is to cash out annually from the value of Gold. So, the options are to enter an investment tier and staking on a plan (annual ROIs are tacked to the advertised investment plans).
First off, the prospect of paying n-investors returns to the tune of 500% is not realistic. Such fantastic sums merely stoke public interests in a masked Ponzi, which always ends in tears.
Second, Golden Way can best forestall the above issue by providing evidence of trades (crypto or indexes on Gold prices). Yet, it doesn’t do so. The reason is that Golden Way does not have any stakes in Gold (there is no record of the company offering any business in that field, anyway).
Third, do you relish the idea of struggling up a triangle scheme just so an anonymous company can maintain its rhetoric about Gold and stocks? Of course, the feint will soon wear off, exposing the company as a fraud.
Finally, our Golden Way Review does not find any legitimate, sustainable earning option on this platform.
