Fan Testimonials

“I've looked at many of the crowdfunding systems out there, and this is the first one that I am a huge fan of so far. There are others that do not have "lifetime" earning, it is set for a set number of years. When I was crunching the numbers on them I was thinking the risks were way higher than the rewards in terms of ROI. Some don't have the escrow system that GigaStar is using, and again I am a big fan of that. And this was the first one that seemed to be transferable in the future - in theory." -- Copper Penny Investor
“Loved my experience participating in the second ClearValue Tax drop. GigaStar made this easy to understand and easy to do! Excited to be part of this cutting edge journey to EASILY invest in the mission of ClearValue Tax via GigaStar! The creativity in this opportunity to invest in this way is inspiring." -- M🫶lly
“I bought two Diamond and three Gold. This was a fun investment for me. I mainly did it to support Brian Kim and obviously, I receive benefits as well. I think he brings a lot of value to all of us beginning investors. I believe his channel will only continue to grow, but I also knew based on the math and the data they gave us that for me to receive anything worth it I would have to at least buy a few thousand dollars worth. I hope it continues to increase over time, and I thank Brian for giving back to his subscribers.” -- Malo
