14/09/2016. Zinc7 Review and Daily News from the HYIP Industry
Beware! Zinc7 has stopped paying! Do not invest there!
Hello all! I must admit I’m publishing this post today earlier than planned, so if this isn’t a sign that the HYIP industry is steadily moving back to full swing for the autumn then I don’t know what is. It’s been a busier week than I first anticipated, which is by no means a bad thing for any of us. And while there has been some disappointment (which is inevitable at some point given the nature of the game) I think the positive news stories, on MNO anyway, have far outnumbered the negative. Anyway, most of the regular readers will have been expecting a detailed review of Zinc7, a brand new mid term HYIP which has just been added to my monitor’s Standard List. The reason I’m publishing early however is that I wanted also to introduce another brand new program, this time on the Premium List, which has also just launched and I think a lot of you may be excited, enthusiastic, or at least interested in hearing about. I’ll get to that in the news section of today’s update in a few moments, however it’s not as if Zinc7 hasn’t had its fair share of talking points either as you can see if you read any of the HYIP related forums. So let’s have a closer look and see for yourself what all the fuss is all about and whether or not you think Zinc7 has a place in your portfolios.
Whatever else you say about Zinc7, as far as the HYIP industry is concerned they definitely follow a tried and tested business model. They offer two simple short/mid term investment plans which have been used in the past by a number of successful programs. Will Zinc7 emulate that success? Well, the short answer to that is that it’s possible if enough investors take the bait and continue to support the program. The bottom line here is that all HYIPs will continue to pay for how ever long the admin takes in more cash than he needs to pay back out. Whether it’s the biggest HYIP you can think of with tens of thousands of members, or the smallest one just getting started on day one, they all operate off this one basic principle. The only real debating point is how capable is the admin to manage the program, fulfill his obligations to investors, and keep the wheels turning so to speak. Exactly where Zinc7 will fit into this is something we’ll find out before too long.
So, the investment plans. As I said there are two of them, and you will need a $25 minimum to join either. The first one is a medium term plan which makes daily interest payments. The second is a shorter term plan paying once on expiry. It’s less profitable but comes with the advantage of allowing you to break even and get out with a smaller profit after a shorter waiting time. I’m not sure it will be quite as popular but you can see how both have their good points. And of course there’s nothing to stop you from hedging your bets by splitting your deposit between both.
Looking at the numbers then, I’ll start with the daily plan. This runs for a term of 30 calendar days, during which Zinc7 offer you a daily interest payment of 7%, but the payments themselves are made on business days only. The exact number of payment days then can vary depending on what day of the week you join, but a typical example would be 22 business days (i.e. payment days) within the 30 calendar day term. The rate applies to all investors, big and small, regardless of how much you spend just so long as it’s the $25 minimum or more. Payments would be around 154% in total, give or take depending on the exact number of payments you receive, from which Zinc7 include your principal. That means you get your own money back plus in this case 54% net profit.
Let’s look at a simple example then and see how it might look in monetary terms. We’ll say you make a $100 deposit in this plan. In return Zinc7 are offering you $7 back per business day during the following 30 calendar day period. They count your own initial hundred as part of that, so you reach the break even point (that is get your own money back) after 15 payments which is really good considering it’s still comparatively early in the term, and start collecting net profits after that. You should then complete the term with $154 in total, $100 of which was yours in the first place and $54 from Zinc7 as your reward. There is no maximum limit to how much you can deposit, and you are allowed to have as many as seven active deposits (or “slots”) running at any one time.
The second option is a shorter term on expiry plan. Zinc7 again charge a $25 minimum to join, and the term is 7 calendar days. At the end of that members are promised a single payout of 110%, which includes your principal. That’s your own money back plus a 10% net profit. Or to put that in monetary terms, the same $100 investment here would see Zinc7 return $110 a week later. As you can see, the downside is that it’s not as profitable as the daily plan and makes you wait for a week before you earn anything at all, but then the upside is that you hope to see at least some profit a bit faster even if it’s not quite so much. It’s all about what your own priorities I guess, though as I said there’s nothing to stop you splitting your deposit between both plans.
One very important thing you need to make sure you fully understand before joining Zinc7 is their payment schedule. You see, while the term is measured in calendar days, that doesn’t mean you can actually withdraw it every day. Zinc7 will only process withdrawal requests on business days, which includes Monday to Friday. Of course you can request a withdrawal on Saturday and Sunday if you like, you just have to wait until Monday before any requests are going to be looked at.
While on the topic of payouts then, as you can see they are made manually. Just log into your Zinc7 private members account area, submit your request, and then allow a further 48 hour maximum for the admin to complete your transaction. So far my own payouts have been pretty fast, however be prepared to allow the full amount if withdrawing too late on a Friday or over the weekend. When it comes to payment options Zinc7 is pretty good compared to a lot of the competition. As expected they have all the main HYIP friendly processors like PerfectMoney, Payeer, and AdvCash, however for some level of peace of mind some of the bigger spending players can use Payza for which Zinc7 has an authorized payments button. Alternatively if you don’t like the usual payment handlers members can use BitCoin for direct e-currency investments. Please note, especially for smaller investors, that Zinc7 have a minimum withdrawal limit of $2.50. If you are owed less than that then you will need to wait until reaching that amount before requesting a payout. By the way, there’s a built-in calculator to help you work out any potential earnings before you join.
Looking at the technical side of the Zinc7 website now such as design and security features, one of the first things you will notice, and one of the things a lot of people might find most interesting, is the script. It’s custom-made made but by no means unique insofar as Zinc7 is not the first program to use it. It’s been used by a couple of big names in the HYIP industry in the recent past. If it’s not the very same script then it’s a damn good copy, and one I can’t tell the difference between anyway, so experienced players will probably feel familiar in the members area. All in all Zinc7 is easy enough to navigate your way around and user friendly without any surprises. The hosting and DDoS protection hasn’t been left to chance either, with hosting on a dedicated server by CloudFlare but additional protection from BlockDos forming a sort of double shield around the website to enhance security. Other nice features in place to protect your account that you might like include an on-screen virtual keyboard for protection against key loggers when entering your password, and a personal PIN number you will need to authorize each transaction (so remember to keep that in a safe place). For an added layer of protection the Zinc7 website also boasts a superior Green Bar SSL encryption certificate by Comodo for safer browsing and more secure transactions, though this is probably a fairly standard expectation for any program hoping to be taken seriously these days. One other thing, a fairly minor note to be honest but one worth mentioning nonetheless, is the Zinc7 domain address. It’s been registered until 2024. Obviously I don’t expect the program to run anything even remotely close to that, and it’s not a particularly difficult or expensive thing for an admin to do. I just think it’s a good sign that they take care of these things on day one so as not to have any distractions further down the road and concentrate fully on the running of the program. I also think this helps to create a feeling of an elite and well-prepared investment program capable of attracting big investments if managed properly.
If you have any further questions for the Zinc7 admin that you think weren’t addressed in this review or any account related issues you need to have looked at then you can get in touch by filling in your details on the online customer support form and submitting it via the contacts page. Naturally it’s suggested that you pay close attention to the website’s FAQ page first as that explains most things and may help you to avoid having to compose any lengthy asking questions that are already answered. So far the Zinc7 admin has been quite responsive to my own feedback, so I’m optimistic he’s taking it seriously.
For the moment, at the time of writing anyway though this may change soon, MNO remains the only official monitor covering Zinc7. Fingers crossed then that the limited exposure and gradual development and expansion will the program last longer and bring more profits to my readers. It’s a complete gamble of course, but that’s what we hope for. Just for the record, in the unlikely event many of you being that interested, Zinc7 claims being involved in trading zinc related products as a business interest. Regular HYIP players know very well to ignore this of course, no evidence is provided and it wouldn’t guarantee profitability anyway, it’s just worth repeating every time for the newbies. So don’t treat Zinc7 as a serious opportunity to earn a living or anything, just a chance to make a couple of extra bucks while the going is good if you are lucky. Keep your expectations realistic, stay well under a spending limit you can comfortably afford to lose and recoup from other sources, and if joining Zinc7 at all then try and keep them as a smaller part of a wider more diverse portfolio.
If you’ve taken the time to think about Zinc7, either made a firm decision one way or another or are still sitting on the fence about it, I hope you’ll find a moment to vote in the following poll. I’m interested in hearing how MNO readers perceive the program as it’s been presented to the HYIP world, and how you rate your chances of seeing a profit from it. As usual the results will really be of most interest only in the coming weeks and months as we see the fate of Zinc7 (good or bad) and how investors managed to judge it from the start. What’s your gut instinct about it, and are you generally a good judge of these things? Remember that voting takes literally just a second, and all votes are 100% anonymous and untraceable. So, please answer the following:
DAILY NEWS FROM THE HYIP INDUSTRY
Only two weeks online for such a well-made program like VivaBusiness could be considered a shamefully short run. A program that used to pay 2.5% daily on smaller investments managed to return only about a third part back to the very first investors who had the misfortune to join. Of course I heard that withdrawals to SolidTrustPay and Payza are still getting processed, but we all know the reason why HYIP admins usually don’t bother to switch off instant withdrawals to those traceable and verifiable options, and why those who invested in VivaBusiness via STP and Payza might be luckier to be paid for the next few days longer, while the site is still online. I would have no idea that VivaBusiness had stopped paying myself having a deposit with Payza and being paid instantly as usual, but thanks to one vigilant reader who spotted payments to other payment processors stopped I managed to react relatively quickly and following no response from the admin I had to move the program to Problem Status on my monitor. I must say that after an initially pretty warm response on the second week online VivaBusiness couldn’t attract new investors, and I guess the admin decided to close up shop and run away with whatever he managed to grab. It’s a shame really that with such a well-made site and decent investment plans and with verified and approved Payza and SolidTrustPay accounts VivaBusiness had to go like this. We might never really know what caused the admin to disable instant payouts, but the tougher than usual competition in the HYIP industry from newer programs might somehow have contributed. Whatever the reasons, please note that VivaBusiness has stopped processing payments, so do not invest there as the program has been moved to Scam status on my monitor as of now.
EDELWEISS5 – PRESENTATION IN KAZAKHSTAN SCHEDULED FOR NEXT WEEK
If you’re familiar with the principles on which Edelweiss5 is based on you might know that, unlike many other HYIPs, the program is largely promoting itself offline and opens new offices with physical locations quite regularly. While having been officially registered in Germany, Edelweiss5 have has a number of offices in the Ukraine and even in Turkey. Now apparently it’s time to spread the word even further afield with an official presentation in Kazakhstan next week as reported on the website yesterday:
“Attention! A grand event!
September 20 at 18.00 will take place a great presentation of the company Edelweiss5 in Kazakhstan. Representative of the presentation will perform our best speaker of Ukraine Mikhail Gaynaly, who will introduce you the past way of the company and plans for the coming year. You’ll find the answers to all the questions and just spend a very good time surrounded by very nice people. The event will take place in Sanzhak restaurant, which is located at the address: Shymkent, st. Ardybekova 26. All are welcome to participate in the solemn and festive event of our company. Administrator contact phone: 77020591077 (Nasib).”
Even regular members of Edelweiss5 who joined the program’s only investment plan paying about 1% on business days and a 0.5% fixed rate on weekends for a term of 365 calendar days can make a written agreement with the company and sign it. Well, that is definitely aimed at the more gullible investors looking for guarantees to help them sleep peacefully at night, but even the effort that Edelweiss5 is making here deserves some appreciation as it’ll help to attract some bigger funds and make the program last longer. I remind you that at the moment Edelweiss5 deposits start from a $50 minimum via PerfectMoney, Payeer, BitCoin, or AdvCash. For all the other details please refer to the comprehensive review of the program posted here.
Today I’m pleased to introduce yet another addition to the MNO Premium List – a program called EmpireAdvertisement. This is a very different program from others because it’s cleverly disguised as an advertising platform which actually allowed it to be verified and approved by such demanding payment systems as Payza and SolidTrustPay. Besides that you can fund your account in EmpireAdvertisement via PerfectMoney and Payeer, and finally via the CoinPayments interface (BitCoin deposits and withdrawals are processed manually for now). If that is an advertising platform you should make sure that you have a website to advertise, so after adding funds to your available balance in EmpireAdvertisement make sure that you create a campaign for your site, by clicking “Add New” across the “Campaign” tab. Only after that will you be able to purchase adpacks the price of which vary from $5 to $25 with different privileges it will give you as a member. There’s a comparison table provided in your account, so you will see yourself what each adpack priced at $5, $10, $15, $20, and $25 gives you. You can earn from 115% to 135% total on your adpacks and your account will be credited with the equal amount of 2% daily, or 0.08333% per hour. There is no need to do anything to earn this amount and you will see your balance in the program growing by the hour, but the admin told me that starting from September 25 he might introduce surfing of 4 sites that you would need to do every 24 hours in order to earn your 2%. As EmpireAdvertisement just officially launched a few days ago it’s going to evolve over with time, just like many such programs do, but don’t worry – you will be promptly informed about that on my site in due course.
That’s not all though, as things stand depending on the adpack type you purchase from EmpireAdvertisement you will get two balances with up to 50% of your earnings might go to your re-purchase balance (from where you cannot cashout, but will only be able to purchase additional adpacks from). That rule is definitely designed for smoother development and to prevent future cashflow issues, as well as keeping the hit-n-runners at bay and keeping the program financially stable for the foreseeable future. That’s not all though and the plans are cleverly designed to encourage higher adpack purchases by giving you the power of multipliers that will improve your return, for instance, a multiple of 1.05 will boost your earnings from 2% daily to 2%x1.05=2.1% daily, etc. I’ll discuss this and many other curious features of EmpireAdvertisement on Friday, so stay tuned for that. On withdrawals, please note that they start from $10 daily and they will be processed instantly if they are in the $10 to $100 range with up to $200 withdrawals allowed daily in total. That is again done to keep a healthy cashflow running for as long as possible, but the good thing is Payza, STP, PerfectMoney, and Payeer withdrawals are all done instantly, (but not BitCoin). You’re generally allowed to withdraw to the same payment processor you have the most adpacks purchased with, but keep in mind to specify all the payment accounts in the settings first to be able to enjoy instant payouts. There are already three English language videos which you can find on the MNOVision page showing how the whole process works. The site itself is hosted on a dedicated server provided by GoDaddy and there is no SSL-secure connection, so in terms of security the admin might have done a better job, but I guess that can always be improved once the site grows bigger. The admin of EmpireAdvertisement himself is quite active on different social networks and regularly updates his members of important improvements and even records his work on video (the most recent shows the admin’s balances in different payment systems). Here’s the latest update posted on the program’s Facebook page just a couple of hours ago:
“Dear Empire members,
I hope you are enjoying your trip with us on Empire Advertisement.
Our Alexa ranking is very good and very promising.
Check by yourselves. France and Poland are in the Top 2.
Big leaders are joining us.
We have so many work to put Empire on the next level.
Stay tuned, more news later in the day
EA admin team”.
Here is the list of the programs from my monitor that paid me for the last 36 hours:
From MNO Sticky list: –
From MNO Premium list: ArdexFunds, BandeiraCorp, Capitaller, Edelweiss5, EmpireAdvertisement (the first payment received).
From MNO Standard list: LaraWithMe, Zinc7.
From MNO Basic list: BlockProfits, HYIP-A, Dowerly.
That’s all for now, guys. Best of luck with your investments during this autumn season. Remember to vote in the latest poll on the MNO TalkBack page, follow MNO on Facebook and Twitter, and in order not to miss anything important please subscribe to the MNO Daily News using this link (now mobile-friendly). I’ll be back on Friday with a detailed look at EmpireAdvertisement and you won’t want to miss it, as there’s a real buzz in the HYIP industry about it already. The program is truly unconventional and does require some effort to understand how the whole process works, but judging by the fact it’s still in its first stages of development and that it’s quite an experienced admin running it I believe in the bright future for EmpireAdvertisement is bright. So check out MNO on Friday for that and many more events in the biggest investment opportunities online!
