It turns out that this small p2p platform called Good Cycle that operates in South Korea. According to the web site of Good Cycle, c since the launch of the platform (may 25) it has already registered 6 151 users. The report says that this platform in a short time managed to become quite popular, mainly due to high profits is with a minimum initial investment of $100. The researchers also draw attention to the poor technical implementation of the platform, which uses the HTTP Protocol instead of HTTPS.
