I am pretty new here and have been seeing a lot of posts about "HYIP" can anyone explain what that is? I do affiliate marketing but that's worked for me so I haven't really learned any of the other things out there..
HYIP (High Yield Investment Program) is any investment program that offers high return and goes along with an corresponding high level of risk. Obviously from its name, an HYIP offers relatively higher returns compared to normal types of investments.
90% is just a SCAM.
9,9% is a “Ponzi Scheme” which pays you back with your own money and money from other gamblers.
0,1% is a legitimate business which actually invests the money and gives you a – small – share of their profit.
