Celsius’ court documents

What is known about Celsius? The platform filed for bankruptcy on July 13. At the first hearing, its lawyers said that most of the user funds on the platform were at the company’s disposal. In this, Celsius filed a request for $50 million in refunds from customers. The company noted that those assets are not part of the bankruptcy estate. The funds will be returned to customers with a balance of $7500 or less.

Also, Celsius CEO Alex Mashinsky unveiled a new restructuring plan for Celsius. He intends to rebuild the firm into a custodial platform that will earn fees for certain types of transactions. The project has been given the working name Kelvin.
