Conventional investment programs and projects are allowed in any country, but for some reason the word HYIP has taken on a negative connotation. This shade has fallen on all high-yield investment projects thanks to scammers, irresponsible owners, fly-by-night projects who want to MAKE money quickly. We are supporters of an honest and long-term business that will bring profit to investors who invest their funds for their own interest, and to project owners who organize these projects only within the framework of the legislation!
We urge you to create only legal projects, register your project only in the country in which HYIP projects are allowed by law, and regularly pay taxes to the treasury of this state.
Countries where the creation and organization of HYIP projects is FORBIDDEN! Create only legitimate projects!
