It has been just revealed the fact that the Celsius Network managed to reach settlements that could be favoring customer fund return. Check out the latest reports about this below.

Celsius Network reaches settlements

According to court documents, Celsius Network, a crypto lender that went bankrupt, has reached settlements that could potentially allow them to return customer assets.

The Wall Street Journal reported on Friday that these agreements would resolve customer claims related to fraud allegations by increasing recoveries by 5%.

The report also mentioned that a total of 30,000 claims seeking $78 billion could potentially be settled. If approved, Celsius will receive court approval for the settlements on August 10 during a hearing.

According to the WSJ, a confirmation hearing regarding Celsius’ reorganization plan will be held in October. Customers may receive disbursements of cryptocurrency and other assets before the year ends.

Although Celsius’ lawyers have claimed that customers are only entitled to the amount they deposited, some users have filed claims seeking compensation for alleged misconduct by former management.

SEC sued Celsius earlier this month

Earlier this month, the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) filed a lawsuit against Celsius and its former CEO, Alex Mashinsky, in federal court.

The SEC accused them of fraudulent and unregistered sales, lying to investors, and manipulating the price of a native token, which resulted in the raising of billions of dollars.

Around a year ago, Celsius filed for bankruptcy, which was one of the most high-profile crypto implosions to date. At one time, the company had $30 billion in assets under management.

Celsius hits $25 million settlement

According to a recent filing, $24 million will be allocated towards legal expenses and the remaining $1 million will be divided among Series B holders.

This settlement was reported by CoinDesk on Monday and marks the conclusion of a year-long legal dispute. In exchange for a $25 million cash settlement from the sale of GK8 and a mutual release of claims, the Initial Consenting Series B Preferred Holders and the Estate Parties have resolved their differences.
