A rapidly growing community
At the moment, Celsius manages more than £7.23 billion in cryptocurrencies and has managed to branch out to over 100 countries across the globe.
Alex Mashinsky, the CEO of Celsius, said that the firm’s approach has transitioned from just a service to earn crypto. According to him, Celsius is now a community that has more than 500,000 crypto enthusiasts who believe in the blockchain, financial freedom, and reward-earning assets. He added that FinTech Breakthrough crowning the platform as the best crypto wallet in 2021 is proof of the efforts of the Celsius team.
Commenting on crypto rewards, Adrian Pollard, the co-founder of South Korea-based white-label exchange provider bitHolla, said,
As more people begin to save money in crypto they will naturally be looking for ways to make their money go further and these interest-bearing accounts like Celsius are perfect for that.
In my view, the popular crypto exchange providers will soon offer crypto bearing interest accounts and begin to compete against traditional banks as well as products like Celsius.
This news comes after Celsius announced that it had paid its customers more than £180.7 million in crypto yield. According to the firm, it achieved this feat in barely three years, seeing as it went live in mid-2018. Touting the platform’s robust crypto-lending business, Mashinsky said that Celsius takes pride in delivering honest, transparent, and rewarding financial services. He went on to note that through these features, Celsius stands out in the crypto market to achieve unmatched success.
