Bankrupt Crypto Company Celsius Could Get New Life From Wall Street

Wall Street heavyweights Apollo Global Management and Fortress Investment Group are competing to buy bankrupt cryptocurrency lender Celsius Network. Each group is proposing to invest around $50 million to help restart Celsius under new management, with the aim of resuming some operations as a publicly traded company owned mostly by its creditors. The competition for Celsius could mean a higher payout to its creditors, including hundreds of thousands of customers who deposited their crypto with the company. Both groups are focused on increasing Celsius's crypto-mining business and processing and verifying transactions using customers' crypto holdings, but neither plans to immediately restart Celsius’s consumer lending business.

Celsius Creditors Demand Transparency on ‘Suspicious’ FTX Transactions

Creditors of Celsius Network are seeking permission from a bankruptcy judge to issue subpoenas to FTX, as they suspect that some FTX users may have engaged in suspicious trades that manipulated the price of Celsius' CEL token between April and August 2022. The creditors believe that the information from FTX will help them determine whether the trades were legitimate or constituted market manipulation. The committee representing Celsius Network's creditors has requested information on users associated with ten cryptocurrency wallets allegedly involved in suspicious trades and any short positions taken on CEL. The information is crucial in determining whether the trades involving CEL were intended to inflate its price artificially and could be critical to resolving a dispute related to Celsius' bankruptcy. Meanwhile, FTX has entered into a purchase agreement to sell LedgerX, its futures and options exchange and clearinghouse, for approximately $50 million.

Kingdom of Bhutan Secretly Invests Millions in Bitcoin

Bhutan's national investment arm, Druk Holding & Investments, has been revealed to have secretly invested millions of dollars in Bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies through insolvent crypto lenders BlockFi and Celsius, according to court records. Druk had withdrawn over $65 million and deposited approximately $18 million in digital assets over the course of three months covered by the Celsius filing. BlockFi has accused Druk of failing to return a $30 million loan, even after the lender liquidated collateral of 1,888 Bitcoin. If confirmed, this would be an unusual move for Druk, which is supposed to encourage domestic business projects. In 2021, Bhutan's central bank, the Royal Monetary Authority, collaborated with Ripple on a pilot project for a CBDC solution.
