Today on March 20 is the 4th birthday of our HYIP monitoring Monitor-invest.net.
We decided to write a little about our work during this period and to reveal some behind-the-scenes details of the monitoring work. Some moments can cause surprise and questions, but I think they will not leave you indifferent.
As you already know, on March 20, 2013 we launched the first version of the site. And it looked like this:
You may think "OMG, make me unsee it!" - and in some way, you're right :)
Every day we added new projects, and thought about what kind of new sections to open and how to attract users to monitoring. Here we will anticipate a bit (about 6 months ahead) and inform you that we sold the first paid service on monitoring only in September 2013. Because, before that, we added the projects we liked, returned 100% of refbacks from them, boosted the accounts on Investment forums, posted payments …

Probably at that time we were more naive and did not get all the subtleties of the monitoring work. Although, as you might have noticed, we're not really monitoring, it's more like a blog monitor, as some people call us. Prior to the creation of Monitor-invest.net, we ourselves invested through monitoring on the GoldCoders script and understood that it's difficult for an ordinary, and especially a beginner investor to understand all project descriptions among flickering payments, banners and statuses. Moreover everything is completely in English! Who saw it, he will understand. Such scripts are easy-to-use, they are filled with various functions, they facilitate administration process, but on the interface, they are not that great.
Therefore, our goal was to make an understandable and accessible to everyone HYIP monitor with interesting articles, HYIP news, fast refback and reliable projects. Yes, you will say, what reliability can be there - when every day 2-3 projects stop paying ... Alas, far be it from us to explain you that such state of things is and always will be in the HYIP industry. Time went ... In autumn-winter 2013, the ruble projects on a cheap/free script with a poor design network were very popular, they promised 25-50% per day. Remember kiwi eggs and kiwi vouchers? :) For several months we added just such projects, but unfortunately, they worked from 2 days to 10 days and the greed of admins, often „schoolboys“, who scamed the project to get several thousand rubles, quickly brought to naught our desire to work with such projects. Since then we have never placed such projects and do not have any desire to do it again (although there are no kiwi eggs anymore, as I understand, but it's for the best).
This is what our monitoring heading looked like by November 2013:

In 2013-2014, as it seems to us, there was a flourishing of such direction of MLM-games as economic farms. Who remembers the first Golden Birds? But it was our monitoring that the administrator took at the start of his project and also gave the exclusive interview only to our site. Clones of this farm are still working and you probably heard about them from YouTube videos of some indiscriminate bloggers. The notorious Yuri Khovansky and Tesak, who was in place of exile, - heavily advertised economic farms and "kiwi doublers" without understanding whether the project pays or not. All of their videos and social networking news feed were strewn with „school-projects“ and there was a turn for posting such news for a month ahead.
It is clear that this could not continue for a long time, especially since there were a lot of angry investors who did not receive a ruble from their deposits …
In 2014, we began to translate the monitoring into English, and by 2015 completely finished this process. Also, after almost a year, we opened the Monitor-Invest.net branch on mmgp. And began to pay BONUSES for the reviews.
In the same year we had our first attempt to open our internal forum, but we did not have enough staff to support and develop it, so we returned to it only in 2015.
There appeared skype scammers who acted under the name of our monitoring and double-crossed admins of different projects.
There was a clone of our site, which copied all the information and our design, trying to show themself like a real one for administrators of the projects.
There were stupid schoolboys who offered to "create the HYIP and make a fast buck, that will be really cool with your opportunities"!
There are regular visitors who order refback and leave feedback - and for this thank you very much! Without your feedback, suggestions for the site improving and healthy criticism - we would not be as we are now!
Just want to note that our original concept was that:
We never give recommendations on where to invest and whether it is worth investing at all.
We never took part in the creation of the HYIP project and were neither administrators nor co-administrators of any projects, nor anyone else. We honestly do not know what to answer when some inexperienced admins ask to help with marketing plans and so on. And it really happens, yes!
There were referrals who became admins. There were referrals who were quickly disappointed in the HYIP industry and they can be understood.
There was one administrator who started the farm. He did not hide his face and the fact that he was a wheelchair user who wants to create a really good project. Unfortunately his project lasted only a couple of months and was not well received. We do not know what happened to him now.
There were amusing cases when we paid 150 dollars refback instead of 150 rubles by mistake. (Payeer, blast him! :)) And there were cases when honest people returned erroneously transferred amount and received from us a very pleasant surprise for honesty :)
There were a few sharply negative reviews in our direction when some novice, which unfamiliar with the topic, invest into the project a decent amount and blamed us. (Because of these few cases we have placed a large inscription recommending to read the teaching material before making investments).
We came up with various contests, created 3 or 4 HYPP crosswords, which went pretty well to the mmgp forum audience.
Made up some memes:

There were a lot of interesting things, but most importantly - during these 4 years, there was not a single day that we gave up monitoring, went offline ... No, of course we went offline several times when changing hosting, when there were DDOS-attacks on our site or ,when technical work was carried out. But we have always warned about this and will warn - on the main page the site, in all chat rooms and social networks where we have accounts.
By the way, we asked one experienced and authoritative high-level investor to comment on the acquaintance with our monitoring:
"Three years ago, the monitor did not differ from the other mass of unnecessary sites, with a set of cheap HYIPs and a large amount of farm games.
But the admins changed their priorities in time, began to work with normal HYIPs. "(C)
Project administrators, before adding to the listing, often ask us - "How many people will come?" "How many referrals do you guarantee?"
And our standard answer is:
"We do not guarantee anything to anyone if your project is pleasant to users - they will make deposits, if not, they won't." We can not read thoughts of potential investors, and even if could, we would hardly do it. "
Today we are 4 years old! We express our gratitude to all our regular visitors, referrals, guests and partners!
