Celsius revival plan revealed
The CEO of Celsius Network has just addressed a new project that may help rebuild the bankrupt crypto lending platform.
According to a new report from The New York Times, Alex Mashinsky has just presented the “audacious plan” called Kelvin. This is set to revive Celsius a few months after the troubled firm filed for bankruptcy. This happened back in July.
Mashinsky and Celsius head of innovation and chief compliance officer Oren Blonstein reportedly want to rebuild the company which will reportedly have a focus on custody.
According to official reports, if project Kelvin manages to push through, Celsius will be offering services to store people’s crypto assets on their behalf. The company may then charge fees for certain types of transactions.
It’s also important to note the fact that the CEO of the troubled firm addressed skeptical questions from employees.
Mashinsky cited the ways in which other famous companies such as Pepsi made a successful comeback after they went bankrupt.
