An online document reveals the names and assets of all celsius users
In a devastating turn of events for some users, an online document by Celsius has surfaced showing the names and crypto assets of all its users. Gurgavin Chandhoke, a stock and cryptocurrency investor, shared the document that listed every Celsius customer’s name. This document, a bankruptcy filing, was delivered to the Southern District Court of New York.
In June 2022, Celsius acknowledged that it had given all of its customer information to an outside company. The company, however, declined to provide more information. The paper is now accessible online.
Tens of thousands of users have had their transactions histories revealed in this new fourteen-thousand paged court filing.
Following reports that some of the company’s senior executives had cashed out more than $17 million just before declaring bankruptcy, this news comes as unsettling for many.
In particular, the business’s previous CEO and CSO Alex Mashinsky and Daniel Leon withdrew the native token of the company, Celsius (CEL), as well as cryptocurrencies including Bitcoin (BTC), Ethereum (ETH), and USDC just before stopping withdrawals back in May.
The relentless barrage of bad news surrounding Celsius has driven its native token down once more – CEL has lost another 15% of its value since yesterday.
