Celsius Asks Creditors to Return Funds Withdrawn Within 90 Days Pre-Bankruptcy

Celsius, a cryptocurrency lending platform, is in the midst of a major financial restructuring following its bankruptcy declaration. The company is now requesting certain creditors who withdrew large sums in the months leading up to the bankruptcy to return a portion of their funds. This move is part of a broader effort to manage the company's financial crisis and ensure equitable treatment of all creditors.

  • Celsius is focusing on account holders who withdrew over $100,000 in the 90 days before their bankruptcy declaration on July 13, 2022. These individuals are being asked to return 27.5% of their withdrawn amount.
  • Those who fail to comply with the request may face legal action. The initiative aims to recover funds for equitable distribution among all creditors.  Compliance with the fund return request makes creditors eligible for future distributions under Celsius's reorganization plan.
  • Account holders who withdrew less than $100,000 are not required to return funds but must participate in the voting process regarding the reorganization plan.
  • The company, along with its founder and CEO Alex Mashinsky, faces lawsuits from regulatory bodies like the SEC, FTC, and CFTC for allegedly misleading customers. Mashinsky is charged with fraud, and Celsius has agreed to a $4.7 billion settlement with the FTC.
