Celsius Network reached an agreement to return customer funds
Celsius, a crypto lender that filed for bankruptcy in mid-July 2022 has reached settlements to return customer assets and end its proceedings. According to court filings from July 20, the lender is offering eligible account holders 105% of the scheduled claim. Individual account holders still retain rights to pursue individual claims against the bankrupt lender if they opt out of the settlement.
The settlement offers a resolution for customers with funds in Celsius’ interest-bearing product “Earn.” Under the proposed agreement, customers who borrowed funds through “Earn” could receive a portion of their funds in crypto assets, along with a compensation in shares of the new company emerging from the bankruptcy proceedings.
The court document reads:
Any eligible Account Holder who does not opt out of the Settlement will receive a claim in the amount of 105% of their scheduled claim, which will supersede and extinguish any related Proofs of Claim filed by such Account Holder.
On July 13, US financial regulator, Securities and Exchange Commission filed a lawsuit against Celsius executives for fund raise through unregistered and fraudulent offers, as well as selling “crypto asset securities.”
