Community Update — November 15th Hearing
Community Update — November 15th Hearing - Dear Customer – This week, the court approved our motion to set the bar date, which is the deadline for all customers to file a proof of claim. The bar date has been set for January 3, 2023. Customers should expect to receive a notice regarding the bar date from our claims agent, Stretto, via email, physical mail for those customers with an address on file, as well as through a notification in the Celsius app. The notice will also include instructions on how to file a proof of claim. As a reminder, customers who agree with Celsius’ scheduling of their claims as filed in the Schedules of Assets and Liabilities do not need to submit a proof of claim and no further action is required of them at this time with respect to such claim. Additional information about our proofs of claim process can be found on the Stretto website. You may also recall that we created this video to help explain the claims process. Additionally, we continue to closely monitor the environment across our industry. We want to take this opportunity to assure you that data and asset security remain a top priority for all at Celsius. Our next hearing is scheduled for December 5th, where we plan to advance discussions around Custody and Withhold accounts, among other matters. Thank you. Celsiu
Claims Process FAQ
We expect to soon begin the claims process. An overview of this phase of our restructuring process is available in this video. 1. What are the Schedules of Assets and Liabilities? As part of our Chapter 11 proceedings, Celsius files documents with the Court listing, among other things, all customer account balances as of July 13, 2022, when the restructuring process began as well as customer transactions in the 90 days preceding the Chapter 11 filing. Customers can access the Schedules on the Stretto website at cases.stretto.com. 2. Why is the amount listed in the Schedules different from my account balance in the app? There are several possible reasons why the amount listed on the Schedules may be different from the account balance displayed in the app, including post-filing deposits, pending transactions, and reward-related changes. Note regarding a potential discrepancy between Celsius’ filed Schedules of Assets and Liabilities and customer reward balances: Certain Celsius account holders may have been eligible for additional rewards for the period of July 8, 2002 to July 13, 2022, which are reflected in the Schedules but not currently reflected in the Celsius app. Affected accounts are currently being updated and the app will soon display the revised balance. 3. Do I have to file a claim? If you agree with Celsius’ records as filed, you do not need to complete and submit a proof of claim form; no further action is re...
Community Update — September 14th Hearing
Community Update — September 14th Hearing - Following our productive hearing today, we wanted to share some important updates about what customers can expect in the coming weeks. Since our last hearing, Celsius has been constructively engaging with the Unsecured Creditors Committee and U.S. Trustee to make meaningful progress on our efforts to maximize value for all customers and ensure continued transparency in our case. Looking ahead, we expect to soon begin the Claims process. At this time, the proof of claim form is not yet available and the “Claims Bar Date,” which is the deadline to file a claim, has not yet been set. In the next few days, we will be emailing you detailed instructions on how to participate. Our objective is to make the entire process simple and straightforward for all customers. For more details on this upcoming phase of the restructuring process, please watch this video. Our next Court appearances are scheduled for October 6 and October 7, 2022. The first of these hearings will focus on several matters, including approval for certain key elements of the Claims process. At the October 7th hearing, we hope to advance discussions regarding the reopening of withdrawals for certain of our Custody and Withhold account holders with the other stakeholders. Celsiu
Community Update — Third Day Hearing
Community Update — Third Day Hearing - As we move forward through our restructuring, we participated in our third day hearing earlier today. We appreciated the opportunity to hear from many of the key stakeholders in our Chapter 11 process and engage in dialogue on several timely and important matters. We continue to focus on maximizing value for all stakeholders, and we today took what we hope to be a positive first step towards meeting the expectations of our community. Among the many important matters discussed was a motion that we filed with the Court requesting that customers with certain Custody and Withhold accounts should be granted the ability to withdraw the amount of digital assets owed to them in those accounts. At this time, the motion is focused on assets currently owed in Custody and Withhold accounts that were never in the Earn or Borrow Program, as well as Custody and Withhold accounts where transfers from the Earn and Borrow Programs were, in the aggregate, less than USD $7,575 (a specific legal threshold), for users that do not have outstanding loans. We are approaching recovery in stages and this step is just the first among many. Our collaboration and productive dialogue with the Unsecured Creditors Committee (UCC) and the various ad hoc committees representing Custody and Withhold account holders, and others, will continue in a dynamic manner. This motion is currently scheduled to be heard by th...
Community Update — Second Day Hearing
Today, alongside the Unsecured Creditors Committee (UCC), which is made up primarily of our customers, the U.S. Trustee, and a number of other important parties, we participated in the Second Day Hearing in our case, where we continued the dialogue around Celsius’ efforts to maximize value for our community. A lot of ground was covered, including: • Our productive, transparent, and ongoing engagement with the UCC • Work by all parties to advance thinking on key legal issues in this complex proceeding • Our intention to see our customers capture any and all value associated with the recent rise of crypto We are encouraged that the community has a voice in this process. We aimed to address some of the key community concerns that are being shared as part of our case. We are working expeditiously on the path forward. We have a meeting with the UCC next week to discuss optionality for customer recovery, and our next hearing is expected to take place on September 1, 2022. The full presentation from today’s hearing can be found here.

Important Community Update
Moments ago, we announced that Celsius voluntarily filed petitions for Chapter 11 reorganization. You will be able to find the official announcement here. Today’s filing follows the difficult but necessary decision by Celsius last month to pause withdrawals, Swap, and transfers on its platform to stabilize its business and protect its customers. Without a pause, the acceleration of withdrawals would have allowed certain customers — those who were first to act — to be paid in full while leaving others behind to wait for Celsius to harvest value from illiquid or longer-term asset deployment activities before they receive a recovery. Following the stated pause on June 12, 2022, we want you to know that we spent a great deal of time exploring our options. These Chapter 11 cases provide the Company with the best opportunity to stabilize the business, consummate a comprehensive restructuring transaction that maximizes value for all stakeholders, and emerge from Chapter 11 positioned for success in the cryptocurrency industry. We apologize that communication with our teams and community has been very limited over the past few weeks, and we look forward to being able to offer greater transparency with everyone through our reorganization, which encourages dialogue with all stakeholders.

Despite the recent collapse and the exchange filing for bankruptcy protection, crypto traders are still paying more than a U.S. dollar for FTX's FTT token on Friday, Nov. 18, 2022. FTT was once a top-30 crypto asset, and now the token has no rank on specific coin market aggregation sites due to locked FTT tokens entering circulation following the FTX bankruptcy filing.Bankrupt Crypto Exchange FTX's FTT Token Still Trades Above $1
While the FTX exchange collapse is a mess and the new FTX CEO said prior FTX leadership was a 'complete failure of corporate controls,' and it was 'a complete absence of trustworthy financial information,' the exchange token FTT is still trading for $1.48 per unit.
Despite the fact that FTX filed for bankruptcy, the coin is held by a few concentrated hands, and the FTT Contract Deployer unlocked 192 million previously locked tokens it has not joined the list of dead crypto coins trading for less than a U.S. penny.
At the time of writing, FTT's 24-hour price range has been between $1.46 per unit to $1.62 per FTT. The coin lost approximately 93.9% during the last 14 days and because of the Contract Deployer incident, it is no longer ranked on coingecko.com.
On coinmarketcap.com, however, it ranks # 209 on Nov. 18, 2022, out of 21,790 listed crypto coins. After hitting its all-time price high on Sept. 9, 2021, FTT was ranked # 25 on coingecko.com and it had a $7.76 billion market valuation.

|Celsius Investors May Be Left Dismayed As CEL Drops 6.5% In Last 7 Days
To everyone's surprise, the Celsius Network is still operating after the drama surrounding its bankruptcy in July. Alex Mashinky, the company's CEO, quit on September 27 despite the announcement of a revival.
The Securities and Exchange Commission joined the chorus of agencies that came down hard on the company. When the SEC ruled that interest-paying crypto investments must be registered, Celsius found itself under a microscope.
The native token of Celsius, CEL, was impacted by these events, but what's more unexpected is that CEL is still being used. However, investors of CEL tokens will be even more dissatisfied now that controversy surrounds the token.
As of this writing, CEL is trading at $1.37, down 6.5 percent in the last seven days, data from Coingecko show.
A Chill In The Air At Celsius
Unlike most widely traded currencies, trading in CEL right now is extremely light, as evidenced by the gaps in the candle chart. Recent data shows a decline in CEL token trading volume from 19.8 million to 4.49 million. The percentage reduction in business activity was staggering, at 77.3%.
This is hardly surprising given that other on-chain signals also do not bode well for CEL. The market capitalization has decreased from a weekly high of $655,331,055 to $582,698,525. The coin's trading activity is comparable to tokens with minimal activity.
This is simply CEL burning off over time. Recently, though, the graphs are green.

|Here's When Celsius Network Will Auction Assets Following the Bankruptcy
The much-anticipated auction of assets belonging to bankrupt Celsius Network is likely to begin later this month.
The embattled lending platform submitted an auction plan to the United States Bankruptcy Court for the Southern District of New York on Monday, media reports said.
Here is all that you need to know about it:
Celsius has set the deadline of 4 pm, October 17, for the bids to be submitted. If required, an auction will be held on October 20 at 10 am.
A sale hearing on Zoom where a large number of participants are expected will be presided over by Chief US Bankruptcy Judge Martin Glenn on November 1, at 11 am.
As per media reports, FTX is likely to bid for the troubled lending platform after recently making a successful bid for Voyager Digital, outbidding Binance in the process.
The Sam Bankman-Fried (SBF)-led company is reportedly expected to go for $1-billion fundraising to finance new acquisitions. FTX has been at the forefront of acquiring distressed assets after the market meltdown in May.
On September 27, Alex Mashinsky resigned as Celsius CEO as his financial conduct leading to the bankruptcy came into sharp focus.
In a voluntary disclosure, Mashinsky revealed to the unsecured creditor committee that he had withdrawn $10 million in May, weeks before Celsius paused withdrawals.

Celsius (CEL) has been on the headlines recently in line with hearing updates following its filing of bankruptcy and sale of stablecoins.

Price slumps 13.21% despite improvement in social media metrics
ETH Merge to impact CEL performance
Celsius Network has recently filed for bankruptcy in July and is now in Chapter 11 proceedings. More so, the network has also requested for court authorization on its plans to dispose its stablecoins to pump up liquidity needed for its operations.
Once this is approved by Martin Glenn, the U.S. presiding judge, the money pooled from the sale of stablecoins would serve as funding for Celsius operations.
The said hearing on the sale of stablecoins is set on October 6 in New York.
Agreement To Appoint An Independent Examiner
In September, The U.S. Trustee’s office together with Celsius’ committee consisting of creditors made an agreement to assign an independent examiner with the condition that they will restrict both the funding and time allotted to the examiner.
More so, the United States Trustee’s Office will be in charge of choosing the examiner. The judge has approved this on Wednesday.
In this connection, Celsius has recently posted a tweet on September 15 harping on their willingness to continue working with the U.S. Trustee and Unsecured Creditors Committee as well as their commitment to improve network efficiency in order to serve their customers better.
|Bitcoin Retests $20K While CEL Holds Gains Amidst Market Bleeding
The world’s foremost cryptocurrency, Bitcoin, has had an eventful week as it briefly hit the $22,500 benchmark on Friday. The crypto has been having a hard time for the past month, trading below $20,000. Detractors even went so far as to predict a $12,000 drop for the token amid the broader market’s bearish turn. Yet it rallied last week, breaking the $22,000 resistance mark before dropping again. Today, Bitcoin has climbed back and is currently trading around the $20,000 mark.
Meanwhile, as the crypto ecosystem undergoes bearish turns in the throes of inflation, the Celsius price dropped 17%. The CEL token had soared by 13% on Sunday only to dip from a $1.7 high to $1.43 on Monday. On the one hand, there is the Ethereum Merge, a movement from the protocol’s PoW consensus to the energy-efficient PoS. The much-anticipated event has been the subject of much hype and market movements. It will take place this November 15th after multiple postponements due to several hitches in the development process.
Another event analysts expect to affect the crypto market is the CPI release on September 13. Some have said that CPI, more than the Ethereum Merge, would determine the price of crypto in the coming days. These, coupled with the spiking inflation rates, have caused the entire crypto ecosystem to convulse continuously.

|CEL Price Surged 50% After Celsius Reopens Withdrawals Of $50M
Celsius announced that users could cumulatively withdraw up to $50 million from all the locked accounts. These funds are for users who own Celsius Custody Program and Withhold Accounts. It now stands at $1.50, which is still higher than yesterday's lows and shows positive price movements.
But the sudden increase might not be sustainable. Data shows that CEL trading volume didn’t spike with the price. Analysts see this low volume as traders' lack of conviction in a continuing uptrend.
Imminent Price Drop For CEL Looms
The CEL four-hour chart shows that the token started painting a rising wedge since the August end. This pattern is usually a sign of an upcoming bearish price reversal. Also, CEL is testing the upper trendline for a pullback to the lower line.
CEL latter trendline is closer to $1.34. It has been serving as a good support zone. Any break below this support might increase the selling pressure in the market. A rising wedge breakdown setup will emerge if the CEL price plummets below $1.34.
By that, the token’s downside target would be as low as the maximum distance between the upper and lower trendline of the wedge if measured from its breakout point. The interpretation, CEL might lose 40% from September 2 price to stand at $0.87 by the end of September.
CEL's price currently stands around $1.44. | Source: CELUSD price chart from TradingView.com

During the past day, most of the cryptocurrencies managed to recover slightly from the previous choppy price action. This resulted in the total market capitalization reclaiming the coveted $1 trillion level. Celsius Network's CEL token seems to be the main outlier.
Bitcoin Flat at $20K
The past 24 hours were relatively calm for Bitcoin. The cryptocurrency reclaimed the important $20K level, albeit not so convincingly. At the time of this writing, it is trading at around $20,100 (on Binance).

It's worth noting, though, that BTC did drop to $19,500 once again. It appears that this level provides serious support because the cryptocurrency dipped toward it on a few occasions, and it prevented any further sell-offs each time.
The entire day saw about $23 million worth of liquidations across the entire Bitcoin market.
Altcoins Chop, CEL Skyrockets
Out of the top 100 coins by means of total market capitalization, the most obvious outlier seems to be CEL. The cryptocurrency skyrocketed by a whopping 28% over the past 24 hours in a market that's relatively flat.

On July 13, just before the lending company filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy, CEL was exchanging hands for $0.961 per unit. Following the news that the company filed for bankruptcy protection, the native crypto asset dropped 58% to a low of $0.40 on the same day.

Following the company pausing withdrawals and other operations on the lending platform, traders on social media started a trend to get people to 'short squeeze' the crypto asset CEL.

Some people promoting the trend explain that getting CEL's value to skyrocket will help the company Celsius get out of financial trouble. Influencers claim the move is akin to the infamous Gamestop short squeeze attempt pushed by the community members from the subreddit r/wallstreetbets.

|CEL Token Price Plummets 50% As Celsius Goes Bankrupt
After the Celsius Network's decision last month to freeze all transactions and withdrawals, the whole cryptocurrency market plummeted into a deep and gloomy sinkhole.
This week there was some good news, when Celsius paid off its remaining $41.2 million debt to the DeFi protocol MakerDAO. This payment allowed Celsius to release $448 million in collateral.
However, it appears that this will be the only positive development from the U.S. crypto lender in the coming days or months.
After weeks of conjecture and hearsay, Celsius's legal counsels have formally informed regulators that the cryptocurrency lender has filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection.

In the last month, there has been an increase in the number of cryptocurrency-related failures. After the crypto hedge fund Three Arrows Capital and the crypto lender Voyager Digital, Celsius becomes another domino to fall in the bankruptcy abyss.
Since June 20, the price of CEL has nearly grown four-fold due to what appears to be a fervor caused by futures and derivatives traders. CEL rose from $0.28 on June 15 to $1.56 on June 21, a 456 percent increase compared to the market's 12.36 percent increase during the same time...

Celsius Network announced today that it initiated a voluntary Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection with the Southern District of New York. Consequently, Celsius' native token recorded a dip of over 50% at one point and dumped to a monthly low before recovering some ground.
According to Celsius, the need for bankruptcy protection will help it in the restructuring process.
“This is the right decision for our community and company,” said Alex Mashinsky, Co-Founder & CEO, of Celsius. “We have a strong and experienced team in place to lead Celsius through this process. I am confident that when we look back at the history of Celsius, we will see this as a defining moment, where acting with resolve and confidence served the community and strengthened the future of the company.”
Celsius Network Not Out of the Woods Yet
The Celsius Network has been battling the liquidity crisis since June 13, 2022, when the company paused all withdrawals, swaps, and transfers between accounts. In the past few weeks, the company has paid off some debts to unlock users' funds in different lending protocols, including AAVE and Compound.
For instance, a blockchain transaction associated with Celsius sent $81.5 million worth of USDC to the Aave protocol on Tuesday. As a result, the company was able to access $410 million worth of stETH.
While the crypto lender continues its restructuring process, various global jurisdictions led by several states in the US are investigating it.

The native cryptocurrency of Celsius Network – CEL – has surged over 130 percent in the past 24 hours. The surge occurred as a result of the crypto market's relief following many days of precipitous declines.
The Celsius token shed by more than half its value to reach $0.20 on June 13. Since then, CEL has gained an upward trajectory.
The price of CEL has increased by an astonishing 375 percent over the previous week, representing the most growth among the top 100 cryptocurrencies. As of the time of writing, the token's average price is $1.51.

|CEL Price Soars 115% Daily Despite Celsius Network Accounts Still Frozen
The native cryptocurrency of Celsius Network - CEL - has skyrocketed by some 115% in the past 24 hours alone. This comes as the broader market sees a relief following last week's devastating drops.
CEL is the strongest performer in the past 24 hours, charting an increase of some 115%, which adds up to a whopping 380% over the last seven days.
At the time of this writing, the cryptocurrency trades at slightly below $1.4.
This massive move also brought about $1.78 million worth of liquidated CEL positions, according to data from Coinglass.
Interestingly, the move comes on the back of seemingly negative news. As CryptoPotato reported yesterday, the platform stated that they won't unfreeze accounts and will also pause Twitter spaces and AMAs in a bid to focus on handling the issues at hand.

A week after halting withdrawals, among all other services, the team behind Celsius has suspended some of its online engagement programs, including AMAs. At the same time, the project promised to be working with regulators to find a solution for the ongoing issues.
The latest update shared by Celsius reads that the team's objective has not changed in the past seven days as they are trying to stabilize the liquidity and overall operations. However, the post warned that this process 'will take time.'
Celsius is also working with regulators and officials regarding its 'determination to find a solution.'
To focus more on the necessary work that needs to be done, though, the team said they had paused Twitter Spaces and AMAs.
Echoing the words of the founder and CEO - Alex Mashinsky - the new post reaffirmed that they 'continue to work around the clock' to find a solution for all customers that are unable to withdraw their funds for a week now.
Celsius' statement comes just a few days after BnkToTheFuture's CEO - Simon Dixon - (lead investor in the project), offered a possible solution, similar to what Bitfinex did in 2016 after suffering a massive hack:
'I believe that this can only be solved with a solution using financial innovation like we did with Bitfinex that was resolved within 9 months and worked out very well for depositors.' - Dixon said, after indicating that traditional finance 'will not have a timely solution for Celsius.'

|Investors Not Looking to Bail Out Struggling Celsius Network (Report)
Amid the challenges plaguing the cryptocurrency lending firm Celsius Network, there are reports that investors may not provide more funds to bail the platform out of the troubled waters.
No Investor Bail Out for Celsius
According to the Wall Street Journal on Thursday (June 16, 2022), anonymous sources revealed that Caisse de dépôt et placement du Québec, a Canadian fund, and growth-equity firm WestCap Group, which led Celsius Series B funding round last year that raised $75 million, may not provide more funds to help the struggling crypto lender.
Another source also noted that current investors are either willing to wait for a Celsius acquisition or a restructure of the platform. One person familiar with the talks between Celsius and its investors said, 'few are feeling OK about things. There was more risk in this than fully appreciated.'
The latest development comes amid Celsius being insolvent and facing a liquidity crisis. On-chain data has shown that the platform held a large amount of staked ether (stETH).
Celsius took ETH deposited by customers and staked them on the Ethereum Beacon chain via the liquid staking protocol Lido and received stETH in return. The company then deployed these new tokens on other DeFi protocols to generate yield.
'Staked ETH has increasingly become decoupled from ether amid concerns over the delayed merge on Ethereum. Consequently, large holders have been dumping the coin, and this continues to dry up liquidity for any swa...
|Celsius Network Hires Restructuring Lawyers After Account Freeze: Report
Celsius Network has hired restructuring lawyers for consultation regarding their current financial challenges.
Note that four days ago, the crypto lending colossus announced that it had paused all withdrawals due to the prevailing market crisis. The freeze continues indefinitely while Celsius makes aggressive measures to help its case.
Celsius Takes Frantic Measures
Sources familiar with the matter told The Wall Street Journal that the new attorneys are from the law firm Akin Gump Strauss Hauer & Feld LLP.
Additionally, they noted that the company is seeking help from its investors other than financial restructuring. The firm was one of the crypto lending firms offering attractive yields of up to 18.63% annual percentage yield (APY). There were concerns about the sustainability of this framework, but those were never addressed at the time.
However, now that the crypto market is in free fall, it may have to reorganize its rewards system to a more sustainable one. Its latest Twitter communication reads:
“.@CelsiusNetwork is working around the clock for our community. It’s all hands on deck, so there will be no Twitter Spaces this week.”
The firm has also cautioned that the so-called CEL2.0 token is not its creation, rather it is likely a scammer seeking to profit from its current crisis.
As for its position in the market, Celsius has added 6,000 Wrapped Bitcoin (WBTC) to the DeFi platform MakerDAO to lower the price at which it could be liquidated.

The native token for crypto lending platform Celsius has abruptly skyrocketed following bullish news regarding its efforts to address liquidity issues. On-chain data shows that the company has received substantial DAI stablecoin contributions, which its already used to pay back its loans.
According to Etherscan, Celsius received multiple DAI transactions worth over $28 million in total at about 10:50 am EST.
These funds were immediately transferred to an Ethereum contract address representing its loan with Oasis, helping to pay back some of the debt it owes.
These funds pushed down the liquidation point on Celsius’s loan to $15,152.
The company has hastily been retrieving liquidity to shield its $534 million worth of collateral on the loan from being liquidated.
Alongside DAI, Celsius has deposited thousands of wrapped Bitcoin (WBTC) as additional collateral as crypto prices continue falling.
Following the news, CEL – a token that helps Celsius users earn additional payouts on Celsius – pumped drastically. Sitting at just $0.33 at 10:54 am EST, it shot to $1.42 by 12:04 pm EST according to CoinGecko.
The coin fell sharply immediately afterward, however. At the time of writing, CEL now rests at just $0.56.
Celsius recently came under hot water after freezing withdrawals from its platform due to liquidity issues. The company uses lending in the defi space to generate yield on behalf of its customers, who deposit their funds with the platform.
|What's Going on With Celsius Network and Why Is It a Huge Risk for...
Celsius Network has been at the tip of everyone's tongue over the past week, and not without a reason. The platform is at the forefront of the ongoing cryptocurrency storm and market downturn.
A couple of days ago, the company did what many were afraid of - Celsius Network paused all withdrawals, swaps, and transfers between accounts. Users are essentially locked out of their funds as the company promises that 'acting in the interest of our community is our top priority.'
“Celsius invented yield and before that no one paid yield. I’m talking about a year and a half before DeFi. Celsius is the first one to come and say “yield Bitcoin on Bitcoin, or if you want to earn more, here’s a token - you can earn with the token.” told us CEO Alex Mashinsky in an exclusive interview in April.
Mashinsky probably didn't expect the huge mess his company would be facing just two months after.
In any case, Celsius Network is one of the largest cryptocurrency lenders and a huge player in the crypto space. As of the time of this writing, it's also in obvious distress - a situation which, if further escalated, could have serious consequences for the entire industry. Let's unwind.
What is Celsius, and How Does it Work?
Celsius Network is a centralized platform that offers yields on various cryptocurrencies, including ETH, BTC, and many stablecoins. The way it has positioned itself reminds that of a bank, but in fact, it seems to operate more like a hedge fund.
|Nexo Wants to Buy Qualifying Assets of Celsius Network After Withdrawal ...
Earlier today, Celsius Network halted all withdrawals, swaps, and transfers between accounts of its users, citing extreme market conditions. Now, rival crypto-lending company Nexo extends a letter of intent to buy all qualifying assets of the company.
As CryptoPotato reported earlier today, one of the leading cryptocurrency lenders - Celsius Network - is facing major difficulties.
Citing 'extreme market conditions,' the company halted all withdrawals, swaps, and transfers between the accounts of its users, causing a stir within the crypto community.
Shortly after, a rival company - Nexo - sent a letter of intent 'to purchase remaining qualifying assets' of Celsius Network.
Nexo, its partners, and affiliates could readily acquire from Celsius part or all qualifying, outstanding collateralized loan receivables secured by their corresponding pledged cryptocurrency collateral, subject to Nexo's risk management and collateral requirements.
Nexo took it to Twitter to confirm the news:
After what appears to be the insolvency of Celsius Network and mindful of the repercussions for their retail investors & the crypto community, Nexo has extended a formal offer to acquire qualifying assets of Celsius Network after their withdrawal freeze.
The company believes that this will 'go a long way in providing immediate liquidity to Celsius Network Clients.'
Celsius Network has until June 20, 2022, at 4:30 AM UTC to respond.
|Plunging Celsius (CEL) Yields Ignite Investor Exodus: Reports
Reports are suggesting that all may not be well at the Celsius crypto lending platform. Some customers claim they have been unfairly wiped out, while company CEO Alex Mashinsky asserts that malicious actors are trying to collapse the system.
Celsius is one of the crypto industry’s largest lenders, with $11.8 billion worth of assets. The company operates by loaning out digital assets that users have deposited while offering them high yields in interest in return. Celsius also lets investors take out loans at low rates using crypto as collateral.
This model works fine when markets are buoyant, and demand is high, but when prices tank hard and fast as they have been doing this month, the entire system becomes unstable.
Bitcoin bull Max Keiser compared the high yields on Celsius to those previously offered by DeFi platforms harnessing UST and LUNA.
The high yields on CEL are a mirage. Just like LUNA/UST. https://t.co/22wQIYpRR4

Terra First, Celsius Next?
On May 18, Barron’s reported that the firm has come under pressure on two fronts recently. Regulators claim they operate outside the law, and the crypto crash has led to panicked customers withdrawing their funds. One former customer tweeted:
“Withdrew all funds, Cel token imploding, big warning sign. Celsius offering $50 bonus for depositing $2500 in stables is red flag. Capital preservation is more important, than return on capital.”
