After the crypto lending platform Celsius halted operations on June 12, at 10:10 p.m. (ET), two days later the Wall Street Journal (WSJ) quoted “people familiar with the matter” who said Celsius was hiring restructuring lawyers. At the time, the WSJ said Celsius was looking to hire the bankruptcy and restructuring law firm Akin Gump Strauss Hauer & Feld LLP. However, a new report from the WSJ claims sources say that Celsius is now working with the restructuring advisory firm Alvarez & Marsal.
“Basically you have added nothing to what you have already said. Which is, per se, very little already,” an individual wrote in response to the company’s statement. “The lack of transparency is very concerning,” another person said. “Choosing Celsius was the worst choice of my life,” a Medium user called “Crypto Cooper” wrote five days ago. CEL, the Celsius Network’s native token is down 80.9% during the last 12 months and 86.3% lower than the asset’s all-time high.
