Celsius then moved his stETH that was on the platform, 410,000 stETH worth $426 million at the time, to an unknown wallet. This decision showed that the lending platform remained committed to repaying these loans.
Currently, Celsius’s remaining debt includes $50 million in DAI owed to Compound and $3.2 million in USDC owed to Notional Finance.

This means that users have not been able to benefit from full transparency about the solvency of the platform. The DFR also underscored this by stating: “Because of its inability to record its interest accounts as securities, Celsius clients have not received critical information about their financial condition, investment activities, their risk factors and their ability to pay their bills. obligations to depositors. and other creditors. .”
