Despite using the name AutoTrade Gold, the firm runs from a domain owned by Panthera Trade Technologies.
Panthera Trade Technologies supposedly possesses an “API platform specialized to AutoTrade Gold.”
Panthera Trade Technologies asserts that it is “one of LegoMarket LLC’s introducing brokers.”
LegoMarket LLC is a Saint Vincent and the Grenadines-incorporated shell corporation.
Pancake is a third-party vendor that sells AutoTrade Gold licenses.
On its website, Pansaka refers to themselves as “PT. Pansaky Berdikari Bersama”.
AutoTrade Gold affiliate registration is handled by Pansaka, while Panthera Trade Technologies provides AutoTrade Gold assistance…
Whoever runs AutoTrade Gold is very certainly also behind Panthera Trade Technologies and Pancake.
AutoTrade Gold, Panthera Trade Technologies, and Pansaka do not offer information about corporate ownership.
The website of Pansaka uses an Indonesian domain. This indicates but does not prove, that whoever is behind AutoTrade Gold has links to Indonesia.
The website domain of Panthera Trade Technologies (“panthertrade. live”) was privately registered on June 3, 2021.
The website domain for Pansaka (“pancake.co.id”) was registered privately on December 7, 2020.
At the time of writing, Alexa rates the United States as the leading source of the traffic to the websites of both Panthera Trade Technologies and Pansaka (50% and 46% respectively).
Indonesia is the only other significant traffic source, contributing 38% and 44% respectively.
This supports AutoTrade Gold’s connections to Indonesia. However, the dominance of U.S. traffic is uncertain.
Update, January 10, 2022 – A reader has shared some insight on Pansaka’s CEO in the comments section below.
Dinar Wahyu Saptian Dyfrig, alias Wahyu Kenzo, is Pansaka’s CEO.
Given Pansaka’s proximity to AutoTrade Gold and Panthera Trade, he is presumed to be operating or engaged in running those businesses as well.
Based on his social media networks, Dyfrig resides in Jakarta, Indonesia. This completes the circle. /end update

The AutoTrade Gold Affiliate Position
In AutoTrade Gold’s compensation structure, there are five affiliate levels.
In addition to their specific eligibility requirements, they are as follows:
The trader must register as an AutoTrade Gold affiliate Sub IB Partner, deposit a minimum of $3000, and individually recruit at least twenty affiliates who have collectively invested a minimum of $30,000.
Sub IB — Invest a minimum of $7500 and individually recruit at least 35 affiliates who have collectively invested a minimum of $75,000.
IB – Invest a minimum of $15,000 and personally recruit at least fifty affiliates who have collectively invested at least $150,000. MIB – Invest a minimum of $250,000, personally recruit at least one hundred affiliates who have collectively invested at least $500,000, and generate a total downline of 2,500 affiliates who have collectively invested at least $5,000,000.
AutoTrade Gold pays referral commissions using a unilevel incentive scheme.
A unilevel pay system positions an affiliate at the apex of a unilevel team, with each individually recruited affiliate positioned directly behind them (level 1):
Recruited level 1 affiliates are put on level 2 of the original affiliate’s unilevel team.
If any level 2 affiliates join new affiliates, they are promoted to level 3, and so on down an unlimited number of theoretical levels.
AutoTrade Gold imposes a maximum of four paying unilevel team levels.
Rank-dependent referral commissions are given as a proportion of cash invested across the following four levels:
Traders to Sub IBs earn 20% on level one (affiliates directly recruited) and 10% on level two.
IBs earn 20% on level 1, 10% on levels 2 and 3, and 0% on level 4.
MIBs gain 20% on level one and 10% on levels two through four.
Membership fees for AutoTrade Gold affiliates also increase business volume. It is unknown whether commissions on this book are paid.
Joining AutoTrade Gold AutoTrade Gold affiliate membership requires a licensing fee between $112 and $3920.
License 1 – $112 License 2 – $224 License 3 – $560 License 4 – $2800 License 5 – $3920
The greater the licensing fees paid, the greater the potential earnings of an AutoTrade Gold affiliate.
Note that to fully participate in AutoTrade Gold’s earning possibility, both a Pansaka and Panthera Trade Technologies account are required.
Also, note that all AutoTrade Gold payments are paid in bitcoin.
AutoTrade Gold Summary
Through Pansaka and Panther Trade Technologies, AutoTrade Gold is a standard “lulz can’t touch our money” trading bot Ponzi scam.
You have a trading bot that reportedly trades in gold and generates 15% each month, but its creators are unknown.
Anyone on the earth with a bot that generates a 15% monthly return would not offer you access for $112.
If AutoTrade Gold was a bot capable of regularly making 15% per month, the scheme’s operators would invest and compound their way to wealth.
This is not occurring for what ought to be apparent reasons.
AutoTrade Gold asserts that it creates trading income through the “gold market.”
Supposedly, this will eventually be extended to bitcoin, oil, and FX trading.
There is no indication of genuine trade (the only acceptable proof would be audited financial reports).
rigged deals are the foundation of a “lulz can’t touch our money” Ponzi scam. This provides the idea that affiliates are receiving rewards until new investment dries up.
At that time, a collapse is initiated, resulting in all deals being rigged in favor of the administrator of AutoTrade Gold. This method purges affiliate accounts.
Typically, this exit fraud is accompanied by a message saying the bot was hacked or malfunctioned.
One aspect of due diligence I wish to discuss is AutoTrade Gold’s use of LegoMarket LLC to impersonate a legitimate business.
LegoMarket’s basic NFA registration is worthless. And registration with the Australian Securities and Investment Commission is likewise useless.
Both registrations are useless because LegoMarket is a faceless shell business, registered in a jurisdiction with red flags, and presumably with fabricated information.
LegoMarket’s NFA basic registration is ineffective since it does not address the fact that AutoTrade Gold is an unregistered securities offering.
The ASIC registration of LegoMarket is worthless. AutoTrade Gold has not filed any financial documents and is not actively seeking investment from Australian citizens.
LegoMarket is likewise registered in Australia as “LEGO MARKET LLC PTY LTD,” a shell corporation.
To perform due diligence, fundamental incorporation anyplace is irrelevant.
AutoTrade Gold and its affiliated firms must register with financial regulators in the United States and Indonesia since they are the company’s principal sources of fresh investment.
In America, this is the SEC. Securities in Indonesia are governed by the Financial Services Authority.
Because it is a “lulz can’t touch our money” Ponzi scam, neither AutoTrade Gold nor any of its affiliated firms are registered with the SEC or FSA.
If you choose to disregard this, AutoTrade Gold is still committing securities fraud by not registering.
The mathematics behind Ponzi schemes ensures that when they fail, the vast majority of participants will lose money.
To join Pansaka and Panthera Trade, AutoTrade Gold affiliates must also provide personal information.
Send a selfie with your valid ID (identification card, passport, or driver’s license) near your face.
This also makes AutoTrade Gold affiliates susceptible to identity theft.
It is typically unwise to send personal information to strangers via the Internet.
Sending your personal information to random Ponzi scheme operators is absurd.
