When I joined MTI as a member at the beginning of this year, I did so after doing as much of a due diligence as I could. Why so? Because frankly, I had grown tired of losing money through all the scams and dubious business opportunities online.
Just prior to joining, I joined every MTI webinar and Zoom call going in an effort to get a sense of what I was about to get into; to see who was behind it: to see the support structures: to ask questions.
And what I found is that the guys at the top of MTI were much like me ie decent, honest types who had had enough of being ripped off by scammers and Ponzi schemes and who were in search of something they could call “home” – a business they could control and make decisions over. At the end of the day, it was the quality, transparency and honesty of the MTI management team that led to my decision to join. That, and the incredible returns that MTI were delivering its members…
After funding my Trading pool with Bitcoin (MTI trades the forex markets using Bitcoin as a base currency, so funding one’s trading pool with Bitcoin is a prerequisite for all members), I started to speak with a few family friends and colleagues with a view to interesting them in the MTI business opportunity.
More than one of them pointed out the negative write-ups on the internet about MTI, and its founder and CEO, Johann Steynburg. My first reaction upon reading these articles was dismay. Had I made an error in joining yet another “scam”, led by yet another “scammer”?
That was back in February. By March, I was able to proclaim without any doubt that MTI was as legitimate a company as they come, and that Johann Steynburg was just another guy who had previously fallen victim to scams like the rest of us.
Amongst the write ups on the internet were claims that Johann was the brains behind failed online platforms Syntek and Kipi, and was responsible for people losing their money. Another allegation was that Johann was not a trader, not experienced in trading, and therefore had no right getting people into forex trading.
Allow me to hit these two allegations on the head:
Johann WAS involved in Syntek and Kipi, and to my knowledge, had built large teams in both. He openly attests to this. But to allege that he was responsible for people’s losses is taking things a bit far. He was a member in both businesses, NOT the owner or the Founder, so when Syntek and Kipi both folded, he lost as much as the people he introduced to these businesses (very likely, a lot more). So, to my understanding – and forgive me if I have my facts wrong as I was not involved in either of these businesses – he was a victim, and not a perpetrator.
We ALL make mistakes. I, for example, joined a Bitcoin mining operation called Bitclub Network in 2015 and over the 4 or 5 years of its existence, built a sizeable team. Not in my wildest dreams did I foresee the day that the Bitclub Network founders would suddenly decide to get greedy and pocket the money that was paid to them for the purchase of Bitcoin mining equipment – losing myself and my team members their money. As disastrous as this was, we were victims. Being a member of something that didn’t work out doesn’t make you a scammer!
The second allegation, pertaining to Johann’s lack of forex trading experience and resultantly, his disqualification from promoting a forex trading business, is quite frankly, ridiculous.
Sir Richard Branson started Virgin Atlantic, and yet, he is not a pilot. Does this disqualify him from starting an airline?
By his own admission, Johann attests to being a novice trader, and not a very good one at that.
Whilst I have never met Johann Steynberg, and am certainly no apologist for him, the person who introduced me to MTI HAS met him, asked him all the hard questions, and gave him an unequivocal “thumbs-up” following their meeting. In his opinion, Johann is a really nice guy: a programmer, quiet, unassuming, honest and with absolutely nothing to hide.
I found these to be the sentiments of a number of other people, who have known Johann for many years.

Now, whilst it’s absolutely in order to do a Google search on Mirror Trading International (MTI as it is commonly called), and to type in “Is MTI a scam or ponzi scheme?” or “Is Johann Steynburg a scammer”, it is hugely important not to believe everything you read. Bear in mind that ANYONE can write negatively on ANYTHING on the internet, so some of what you read can and should be taken with a large pinch of salt. For it is a fact that bloggers make a habit of writing articles entitled eg “Is MTI a scam?”, “Is Amway a Ponzi scheme?” “Is World Ventures a pyramid scheme”, KNOWING that these type of questions are the most often-asked, and KNOWING that these type of articles are typically pushed to the top of Page 1 by Google…
(I’m an experienced copywriter and blogger myself, so I know what I’m talking about).
The advice I would give to anyone doing research prior to getting involved in a business venture – MTI or other – is to get onto a webinar, or attend a presentation. By doing so, you will get a FAR better sense of what you’re getting into. Believing what you read on the internet and making a decision based on what you read on the internet is not the way to go about a due diligence!
In the five months or so that I’ve been a member of MTI, I’ve brought a number of people into this excellent business and have taken the opportunity of asking them to provide an HONEST appraisal of their experiences thus far. Here is what they say:
“After doing my due diligence and research into MTI as a company, the CEO and the broker that they trade through, I am very confident in the business model and delighted to see my Bitcoin growing daily. The accessibility of my funds allowing me to withdraw at any time I choose is obviously a major plus. More than happy!“ Dirk, Johannesburg
“I investigated MTI for 10 weeks before deciding to jump in. Just the best decision EVER. No lock in period, no fees, no packages, withdraw funds anytime..and totally transparent. There’s nothing not to like! “ Thinus, Cape Town
“Mirror Trading International is the most transparent company I have ever come across. The way they show you all the calculations and statements is just amazing. What they say is what you get. This is a life changing opportunity!” “ Kyle, Johannesburg
“A good, honest bunch of people – transparent and always available to comprehensively engage with on any level“ Sally, Bryanston
“Very happy with MTI’s support. Other companies could learn a thing or two from them! Very transparent in terms of earnings etc….” Johan, Cape Town
“A friend of ours, who has a Masters degree in Economics, investigated MTI on our recommendation and reverted back with her intention to join. As a registered financial advisor, she understands that alternative ways to invest money in the future is essential…” Pieter, CT
“What an awesome investment. Its returns are realistic and no get rich quick scheme. MTI members don’t just want to sign u up and get your money. They will empower you with valuable information and understanding about the company first” “ Grace, Northern Cape
“I like the idea of withdrawals anytime with MTI, no lock in” Lucky, Eastern Cape
“Now that I’m seeing the monthly returns, I understand why it makes no sense to leave one’s Bitcoin in a Bitcoin wallet. It doesn’t grow sitting in a Bitcoin wallet. This company, MTI, grows your Bitcoin…so a no-brainer for me“ Nathaniel, KZN
“One of the things I really like about MTI is their Support. If there is something we’re unsure of we ask and get answered almost immediately…” Damon, Gauteng
“I’ve only been a member for a short while but it is hugely exciting seeing my Bitcoin grow. I’m a big fan!” Levi, Johannesburg
“MTI is on the right track and I thank the leadership for creating this company. May it grow to change more and more people’s lives…” Simphiwe, Gauteng
“Like many people, the current bleak economic situation globally is very scary to me and my family, although I am fortunate enough to still be working. I have just joined MTI and I am excited to grow my business and start increasing my Bitcoin reserves, as I no longer have faith in the current financial system to provide me with the financial freedom I am looking for. If we are willing to change our mindsets about having a job and earning a salary as the only means of supporting ourselves and our families, or relying on traditional investments eg the stock market and property, opportunities like the one offered by MTI are definitely worth looking at. I am excited!!” Debbie, Johannesburg
These are views of people IN the business. Not from people OUTSIDE the business who base their opinions on subjectivity and often times, hearsay.
Personally, if I were looking to join MTI and entrust the company to grow my Bitcoin, I would ask people in the business what it’s like to be IN the business.
About MTI, the business:
A registered South African company with a Support office in Stellenbosch, Western Cape, MTI’s sole aim is to grow one’s Bitcoin. This it does by trading the forex markets on behalf of its members using Bitcoin as a base currency, through advanced AI software exclusive to the company.
Mirror Trading International has been in business for a year and has grown from a handful of members (mostly family members and friends) to a company with a good 34 000 members from around the world.
The company caters for two types of people:
Those who just want to put in their bitcoin and do nothing further.
Those who want to put in their Bitcoin and then, introduce others with a view to building a business.
Regardless, the company aims to grow the Bitcoin of all its members, and has succeeded wildly in this regard. In the 12 months of its existence, MTI has shown a profit every single day and on average, delivers returns of approximately 0,5% per day. Trading 5 days a week with daily returns of this average sees the company deliver returns of approximately 10% per month. COMPOUNDED. (Expected, NOT guaranteed).
The company’s business model has been found to be low risk and sustainable due the fact that if the company does not make a profit on any given day, members do not get paid.
MTI is a solid and proven business and superb business opportunity and anyone with Bitcoin (or with the funds to purchase Bitcoin) would do well to join. Or, at the very least, to get onto an MTI webinar.
My opinion only, of course….
