I see a lot of ponzi schemes, advertising themselves as ponzi's, doubling your btc investments, but not quite and leaving a lot of investors empty handed when the desired profit is reached. Why do people still buy into these, even when the schemers are playing open card? Didn't we learn enough from the pinnochio fairytale, money does not grow on trees?

You might miss the boat and the chance you do with a ponzi is very high?

Because if you know how to play ponzi's, they can actually be pretty good. Some people don't understand that people enjoy playing ponzi's. So everyone thats like "Boo ponzi fuck you scammmer, hahahahahha" doesnt really need to make that post to boost their post count. Just let the people that enjoy them play them, and the people that dont can leave it alone.

Not as much as people who have dice addictions or any other form of gambling, i have lost 0.15 on 2 different ponzi but was a cheap lesson to learn!

I never deposited my bitcoin in any ponzi or hyip.
IMO people make a deposit in those sites mainly because they believe they are early investors and there will be enough latecomers.

Number of people who lost in ponzi = Total number of people who have heard about this scam - Sensible people - Lucky opportunists - Ponzi operators /millionaires Tongue

100% - 60% - 10% - 0.01% = 29.99%

There it is.

money doesnt grow on trees but indeed people never learn anyway, they took chance to double their investment although they know the risk, it is in human nature, it is called greed, can't deny that

I am not the person who tries to make his money double or triple or so on. Ponzis are very attractive but let you without money.

I am not the person who tries to make his money double or triple or so on. Ponzis are very attractive but let you without money.

but what i think is that we can invest in these ponzi scam site in early stages/ like when the site started its journey. like i invested in a ponzi site when it was in its starting stage and when i earned almost double the amount i invested then i left it, then this site went scam and many people lost their investment

what you say?

I am not the person who tries to make his money double or triple or so on. Ponzis are very attractive but let you without money.

but what i think is that we can invest in these ponzi scam site in early stages/ like when the site started its journey. like i invested in a ponzi site when it was in its starting stage and when i earned almost double the amount i invested then i left it, then this site went scam and many people lost their investment

what you say?
 

This is best strategy but we should tell others to not invest as we are taking others money being early investors. I lost once and since then I stay away from any kind of scheme even if it is ponzi or not because we dont know what is happening behind the scene. I did not lost much but was enough to have a lesson.

my friends was a ponzi (and HYIP) maniac, he often join newly built ponzi site and make a good profit from it
but he often loose too, because owner of ponzi site run too early
he told me very hard to leave this ponzi game, because he can get money easily from ponzi (and loose easily too)
win and make profit -> more greedy to get another money
loose and loss profit -> time to revenge! make profit from another ponzi
good things that he can leave this ponzi world now
