The crypto lending company that declared bankruptcy on July 13 had ceased withdrawals on June 13 due to the harsh market circumstances.

In order to help it through its reorganization, Celsius has brought on David Barse, the CEO and founder of index provider XOUT Capital.

Even though the crypto lending company reported a $1.2 billion balance deficit in its bankruptcy petition, the true shortfall was more than $2.85 billion. The bulk of Celsius’s liabilities ($4.72 billion) came from user deposits, while the company’s assets ($600 million in CEL tokens, $720 million in mining assets, and $1.75 billion in other crypto assets) were all valued at billions of dollars.
