    We did find the following complaint regarding a different domain, which now seems to be defunct,

    From the website, I have deposited my crypto to earn interest. But after waiting for days, my crypto suddenly disappeared from the platform. I tried contacting the admin, but no reply. It’s all gone!!! Careful with this site as it offered a very high APY to lure investors.

    It is possible that the phishing warning and the complaint we began this review with are referring to fake domains.

    We also found a warning on

    Other than that we found some unhappy users, but no scam accusations. For example, 9 months ago one person wrote:

    […] the self-reported “very big team of 13 devs” have been extremely lazy and so far hasn’t delivered a clear communication or marketing plan to spread the adoption of the token , despite many promises. […] team hasn’t spent adequate resources on adoption and their inexperienced mods are constantly repeating that the 2022 marketing strategy will be the “spread of mouth” […]

    Planet.Finance Review Conclusion

    Our conclusion is that Planet Finance is NOT a scam.

    However, cryptocurrencies are a risky investment.

    AQUA is valued at $47.45 as of today, but may go down to zero tomorrow. But then again so can Bitcoin or any other crypto token.

    And it has been a long time since its all time high back at October 2021 when it was valued at almost $2,000 per coin.
