its easy to spot
1. affiliate commission
2. daily % earning
3. No risk
4. No real identifcation of the company

Affiliate commission depending on the % every invite that will invest in the site this is considered as ponzi.
Daily % earning, without a proof that they can sustain their capital to run the site for a long term.
Don't risk if you can't afford to lose.
All identification of some PONZI are all made with lies to entice potential investors.



that surely a big indicator to us to point out that the site is a ponzi scheme since how can a legit site earn on that if they give huge affiliate commission on his affiliators? Well thats a big red flag to us and we should be warned to avoid on investing on that sites since its super obvious that they will deceived and scam our money.

And in addition to that we should avoid investing at cloudmining or whatsoever like that so we can save our money from dirty handed person.
Sometimes those big affiliate commisions are really indication of sites that are purely ponzi and some people would really take this opportunity without harming their own money and besides that they will still invite fools to join the website and thats the way they able to earn money.

Not really, there have been ponzi schemes that offered low rates and showed some sort of proof that they are working to give their investors some return, but in the end after months or even years of collecting deposits they still ran away. If it is well made, there is a chance that no one can detect that it is a ponzi, regardless of it having low rates.

well, if the website offer your about more than 100% a year, it is certain that they are all scammers who want to steal our money. 20% per year maybe a ponzi scammer too. You have to do a lot of analysis if you want to make sure whether it it ponzi or not. However, your money is your money, do not invest your money in some places where you can not hold your property or something like that

For me almost all even they are giving small percentage they are just the same ponzi schemes there is no investment and ponzi sites that actually that can stay for too long just to give free profit from their investors..
All earnings and profit needs to hard in order to earn a good profit.. if you are just invest it in ponzi you will regret in the end.

Pretty much anything that guarantees profit is a scam, no matter how it's worded. I've made a little bit from ponzi schemes but i've also lost a little bit. It's fun to invest a little bit in them and make a little bit of cash but most of the time they will collapse before you get anything out of em.

I'm pretty new to Bitcoin and the idea of cloud mining seems pretty appealing. However I keep hearing about Ponzi schemes which rely entirely on new members to stay alive.  Besides the blindingly obvious, what are the main signs that a service might be a Ponzi?
Cloud mining sites are not appealing they are appalling, and the simplest way to know if a site is ponzi is to see if the returns are way better than anything you could get, the website looks unprofessional, there are not phone numbers you can call or a physical address, there are lies in the web page, and there probably more signs to identify a website as a ponzi.

It's good to check if there is a phone and local address, but it's not sufficient. When the investment site show you an address, try to find it on google maps or any other app. The address can be fake and doesn't exist in real life.

HashOcean did it. They had phone number, address, but all fake. The legitimacy of site owners is important too, look if they are reputable persons in Bitcoin businesses area, possible to know it when they are members of BitcoinTalk Forum.
