Celsius Prepares to Sell Over $24 Million Worth of Altcoins
Embattled crypto lender Celsius has started offloading over $24 million of altcoins, including Chainlink (LINK), Synthetix Network (SNX), BNB coin, 1Inch, and 0x Protocol (ZRX), among others.
While Celsius fights various lawsuits, it has started liquidating its assets following court approval.

- 2.83 million SNX (approx. $7.84 million)
- 12,597 BNB (approx. $3 million)
- 4.45 million 1INCH (approx. $2.26 million)
- 8.53 million ZRX (approx. $1.9 million)
- 439,000 FTX tokens (approx. $713,000)
Additionally, Celsius transferred 186,149 Bone ShibaSwap (BONE) tokens worth around $235,000 to the OKX crypto exchange.

The development comes after Celsius won permission from the bankruptcy court on June 30 to convert altcoins into Bitcoin (BTC) and Ethereum (ETH). The court allowed the conversion so Celsius could distribute BTC and ETH to its creditors.
Due to the crypto market crash last year, Celsius filed for bankruptcy in July, as it could not honor customers’ withdrawals.
Charges Against Celsius
Recently the US regulators such as the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC), Department of Justice (DOJ), Commodities Futures Trading Commission (CFTC), Federal Trade Commission (FTC), and the US Government filed lawsuits against the crypto lender for several charges including fraud, and unregistered offers and sells of securities.
Moreover, Celsius founder and former CEO Alex Mashinsky was arrested last Thursday.
