    It's the most-efficient way of spreading a virus. The most daily people, in the closest space, for the longest time. From the government's actions, they seem eager to spread it as fast as possible

    Crowd1 Scam

    Pyramid schemes all work like that. If you get in early enough and don't care about taking other suckers money then you can make money off it. Crowd1 is showing signs of crumbling. When new recruits slow down, the money dries up.
