It is in fact not that hard to separate HYIPs and legit cloudmining sites IMO.
1. Return rate: If the site offers you 3% daily, you should ask yourself if bitcoin mining is really that profitable.
2. Source of hashrate: Is the site producing miners? Or is it partnering with a ASIC manufacturer? Has the site proved the existence of the hashrate?

HYIP dev will scam once they receive enough deposit.
Cloud mining is cex.io is like trading, you need to buy cheap ghs not when it is overpriced.

First point: not necessarily. Some run until they fail (the devs didnt get anything out of it), others do scam deposits tho.

HYIP is an investment program.
if you want mining bitcoins without manage with your own material computer, you can generate btc with cloud mining.

Many cloud mining programs are scams, of course, like HYIPs. But, to cap it all, there are also many cloud mining programs which are honest and reliable, but in this case the problem is that ROI takes always too long to be reached, so I advice you to avoid these programs.

It'll take a very long time to get your ROI on cloud mining, so it's not really worth it except you're ready to wait a very long time.

HYIP means high yield investment programme. They ask you for your funds and promise high interest return rates. Most of the rates are ridiculous, thus, most of them are most likely scams or ponzi schemes.

There's a handful of cloud mining services which a legit. They are certainly more of a long term investment as it takes about 6 months to hit your return on your investment. This ROI is still much better than most investments out there.

What else gives guaranteed payback on your investment every day or week?

cex.io offers OVERPRICED and Never-ROI mining contracts. The maintenance fee is 50+% which means they only give you less than half of your profit and take the rest as fees for electricity and datacenter upkeep. Their GHS are way overpriced, 0.002++BTC while other cloud mining contracts offer 1GH at 0.001 with lesser maintenance  fees.

HYIP is always become scam after some time (usually in short period of time)
cloud mining = hyip scheme too, but longer time to screw up
if you see cloud mining, try to ask proof that they actually mining
if they can't provide it, most likely they do hyip and / or ponzi

Cloud mining can be a ponzi, but not necessarily.

Their GHS are way overpriced, 0.002++BTC while other cloud mining contracts offer 1GH at 0.001 with lesser maintenance  fees.

At current difficulty and bitcoin price, 1 GH/s hashrate will bring you roughly $0.0045 a day and $0.135 a month (assuming difficulty won't go up). https://bitcoinwisdom.com/bitcoin/difficulty
Cex.io is charging you $0.105 per GH/s per month. https://cex.io/maintenance

So the maintenance fee is roughly 78%, or in other words, you only get 22% of your mining revenue after the maintenance fee.

Cloud mining could be a HYIP if there is no actual mining going on at the back. We have no way to know for certain.

When i ask to my friends about mining, they always bring me to cloud mining site, but i think cloud mining similar with hyip. did i wrong ?

I think the same way, most cloud mining services are likely just HYIPs / ponzis. I'm wondering how the cloud mining services get into  profit zone with the dip of bitcoin price. I actually tried to order some weeks ago, but I read so many negative comments about them, that was enough for me to steer clear
