Clients Of Celsius Network Custody Engage A Lawyer To Recover $180 Million
An ad-hoc group represents the group of people who share some common interest like here; it is the group who wants to fight to get their funds back legally. All the members have put money in the celsius to store, unlike other members who participated in high yield earning programs for good interest. So, the agreement which says that the custody of funds will be with the company is not more valid here as the members are wallet holders.
Celsius had frozen all the accounts since June because of a 1.2 Billion USD hole in the balance sheet. The undergoing bankruptcy hearing now calls for a contest among various customers of celsius like institutional creditors, regular customers, and equity holders.
The custody wallet holders were the first customers who came together and formed an ad-hoc group. All the members are now worried Celsius’s law firm(Kirkland and Ellis) may ask them to hear with any support. Per the founder of bankruptcy claims specialist Thomas Braziel, the members should have filed a case to return their money as fiat currency like the customers of Voyager Digital did.

A hundred letters have been submitted to the court. Many retail investors beg the court to help them get their money back. A single mother of two college girls recently told the media about their mental and financial struggles. She also supports her parents. And now, since her funds are left stranded, it is difficult for her to concentrate on work or sleep. She is struggling quite hard to earn a living.
Another customer Jeanne Y Savelle is a little retired old lady who lives on a fixed income. And she had invested in celsius to find a way to stretch her income a little bit amid the inflation. She had purchased a small amount of crypto, hoping it would multiply in the coming few years.
Many clients have threatened they’ll commit suicide if they don’t receive their money back. Although Celsius claimed to be much safer than banks amid the bearish trend, the terra Luna crisis had severely affected it and its customers.
