On their website, Mainet omits to include ownership or executive information.

The domain name “” for Mainet’s website was privately registered on May 26, 2022.

Further investigation finds that Ciprian Ciceu is listed as the founder and CEO of Mainet in official marketing materials.

BeTrader, an MLM “crypto trading” Ponzi scheme from 2019, is run by Ciceu.

BeTrader debuted in August 2019 with monthly returns ranging from 20% to 40%.

BeTrader had already collapsed or was about to do so by October 2019.

After BeTrader, Ciceu started the shitcoin Ponzi scam BeTrader Academy.

The ultimate purpose of BeTrader Academy’s “couches” sales was to get customers to invest in BETRA.

BETRA was a worthless ERC-20 token. ERC-20 shitcoins are easy to set up and cost little to nothing.

The website for BeTrader Academy is still up, however BETRA failed and has since been shut down.

Ciceu has now arrived back with Mainet.

Bucharest, Romania, believed to be the home base of Ciceu. He may have connections to Belgium as well.

Advisory Commissions

Mainet uses a unilevel compensation structure to pay referral commissions.

An affiliate is put at the head of a unilevel team in a unilevel pay system, and each affiliate they personally recruited is positioned immediately under them (level 1):

New affiliates brought on by any level 1 affiliates are added to the original affiliate’s unilevel team at level 2.

If any level 2 affiliates bring on new affiliates, they are promoted to level 3, and so on down a theoretically endless number of levels.

Mainet has eleven unilevel team tiers where referral commissions are capped.

The following describes how referral commissions are paid as a proportion of the money invested over these 10 levels:

6% levels at level 1 (personally recruited affiliates). 2.5% and 3.0% levels levels of 4% to 6% 7.10 – 1.5% Bonus for Referrals

20% of each investment is kept aside by Mainet and used to pay out referral bonuses.

According to rank, the referral bonus is given out:

Beginners get a 4% referral bonus.

A 5% referral bonus is given to Jades.

There is a 6% referral bonus for Silvers.

A 7% Referral Bonus is given to Golds.

A 8% referral bonus is given to Pearls.

There is a 9% referral bonus for Sapphires.

A 10% referral bonus is given to Rubys.

Emeralds get an 11% referring bonus.

A 12% referral bonus is given to Platinum members.

Diamonds get a 13 percent referral bonus.

A 14% Referral Bonus is given to Blue Diamonds.

A 15% Referral Bonus is given to Green Diamonds.

A 16% Referral Bonus is given to Red Diamonds.

A 17% Referral Bonus is given to Black Diamonds.

There is an 18% referral bonus for Crown Diamonds.

Ambassadors get a 19% bonus for referrals.

A 20% referral bonus is given to Royal Ambassadors.

The referral bonus portion for the affiliate who brought in the new affiliate is given to them, and the remaining 20% is distributed upline to affiliates with higher ranks.

The same unilevel team referral commission payment system is used to track this (see “Referral Commissions” above).

For instance, if you are Platinum and bring on a fresh associate who makes an investment. You receive a 12% referral bonus, leaving 20% less 12% for payout, or 8%.

The system looks for a Diamond- or higher-ranked affiliate in the upline.

Consider that the person who hired you, your upline, is a Black Diamond. They receive 5% (Black Diamonds get 17%, you got paid 12%, thus there’s 5% left over).

The remaining 3% will be awarded to Crown Diamonds, Ambassadors, or Royal Ambassadors higher upline. What rank is identified first determines how the 3% is distributed.

It should be noted that a Royal Ambassador is always paid the entire 20% or the remaining owed percentage whether they are the recruiter or are found upline.

Bonus for Rank Achievement

Mainet offers the following one-time Rank Achievement Bonuses to affiliates that qualify at Jade and higher:

Earn $5 for qualifying at Jade, $10 for qualifying at Silver, $25 for qualifying at Gold, $25 for qualifying at Pearl, $75 for qualifying at Sapphire, $225 for qualifying at Emerald, $375 for qualifying at Platinum, $750 for qualifying at Diamond, $2250 for qualifying at Blue Diamond, $3750 and an iPhone 13, $7500 for qualifying at Green Diamond, and $35,000 for qualifying at Red Diamond.

Membership in the Mainet Mainet affiliate program is free.

The linked income opportunity requires a minimum commitment of $25 to be fully participated in.

Mainet Summary

Under the pretense of investors acquiring “software licenses,” Mainet operates its passive investing program.

The permits are in line with alleged forex trading, which Mainet claims is where ROI payments come from.

The passive investment plan of Mainet qualifies as a securities offering.

As a result, Mainet must produce routinely audited financial reports and register with financial regulators.

The only method to confirm Mainet pays affiliates using trading earnings is in this way.

Neither Mainet nor Ciprian Ciceu were registered with any financial regulators as of the time of publishing.

This implies that Mainet and Ciceu are at the very least engaging in securities fraud.

Mainet distributes MyFxBook data that it says indicate trading revenue to appear legitimate.

This is a typical MLM Ponzi scam strategy. It does not take the place of lawfully doing business and registering with financial regulators.

Right now, new investment is the sole verified source of income entering Mainet. Magnet is a Ponzi scam since it uses fresh investments to pay for ROI withdrawals.

As with all MLM Ponzi scams, fresh investment will cease as soon as affiliate recruiting does.

As a result, Mainet will eventually fail from a lack of ROI income.

The mathematics behind Ponzi schemes ensures that when they fail, the majority of investors lose money.

Don’t get taken in by the Ciceu’s “trading” Ponzi scam again; we’ve previously seen it in action with BeTrader.
