HYIP stands for High-Yield Investment Platform.
HYIPs are very popular and particularly suited to bitcoin given the anonymity and ease of transfer, so we at Stacks of Coin will be focusing on them in this dedicated section. There are thousands of HYIPs at any given time but not all are investment worthy for many different reasons.
For more information you can check out:
My basics page will give you plenty of information about HYIPs, so start there is you are new to them. It is probably also worth a read if you have invested in some HYIPs and lost some bitcoin.
My investment page, which is also known as a bitcoin HYIP monitor is a page dedicated to my current investments in bitcoin HYIPs. Here you can track how each investment is progressing as well as get a visual indication of my assessment of the risk. Generally, the older a HYIP is the more risky, but that is not always the case.
The scams pages is exactly that – a list of bitcoin HYIPs that I have confirmed to be a scam so do yourself a favor and do not invest in any of these.
Finally, remember HYIPs are very risky so do not invest bitcoin that you can’t afford to lose.
