What is HyperVerse (HVT)?

HyperVerse claims to operate a platform to provide developers services to build and utilize smart contract primitives as smooth as web2 APIs.

HyperVerse also claims to offer a decentralized financial infrastructure for crypto holders.

But, at the time of its launch, the project was called Hyperfund. Its clients can reportedly use the platform to explore the cosmos within the metaverse and create and sell various things.

Many people who have invested in HyperVerse think it gave its old name Hyperfund due to its connection with the Ponzi scam. They believe the firm has now rebranded to dissociate itself from the Ponzi scheme and attract young investors interested in the metaverse, according to the web portal

Is it a scam?
It is alleged that the project developer, called Decentology, had offered a 300% return on investment (ROI) for the HVT token investors.

The ROI is used to measure the performance of single or multiple crypto investments. Due to the higher returns, HyperVerse was able to attract many investors.

Many of them now claim it is a Ponzi scam. HyperVerse’s website has been inactive for quite some time. They are unable to get information about their investments. However, user reviews have been mixed, although most people call it a Ponzi scam.

Binance said the HyperVerse crypto is not listed on its platform for trading or any service.

What do we know about Decentology?

In a blog post in October 2021, Decentology declared it is developing a new open, blockchain-compatible, decentralized marketplace.

It also said the project raised a seed funding of US$4.3 million, besides claiming to have 10 million web developers for Web3 projects.

According to market observers, HyperVerse does not seem legit. First, due to its vague and defunct website. Second, due to the huge number of negative reviews, calling it Rug Pull Ponzi.

Also, there are concerns over the founders’ real intention. HyperVerse’s founders had reportedly launched several failed projects, such as Blockchain Global, HyperCapital, Hypertech, etc., and then eventually rebranded them as HyperVerse.
