More details about the situation. Bloomberg previously reported that FTX cryptocurrency exchange CEO Sam Bankman-Fried is going to take part in bidding for Celsius’ assets. According to insiders, FTX is also seeking $1 billion in funding.

In June, Celsius froze customer funds, citing unfavorable market conditions. On July 13, it filed for bankruptcy. In September, Celsius CEO Alex Mashinsky unveiled a new plan to restructure Celsius into a custodial platform and later tendered his resignation.

It also became known that Mashinsky withdrew $10 million from the company in the weeks before the freeze of customer funds. The former head of the company explained that he and his family kept $44 million in cryptocurrency in Celsius.
