Retail crypto deposits on Celsius spikes

Per the report, the growth of crypto deposits in Celsius follows the launch of the company’s mobile application, which was released in less than two years. In addition to seeing increased profitability earlier in 2020, Celsius noted more participation – at least 110,000 active customers.

Amid the increased crypto deposits on Celsius, the company has equally paid out interest rewards to its users worth $17 million presently, per the report. For Bitcoin Interest, Celsius mentioned that it paid up to $12 million, which is higher when compared to other platforms.

More so, Celsius said it distributed about $3 million in ‘CEL’ – a digital currency created by the company – to its vast users as Interest. Meanwhile, the cryptocurrency reportedly performed well, reaching new ATH, and has been listed on Coinmarketcap among the best 100 cryptocurrencies.

$4.25 billion crypto loan in 2019

With the objective of enabling financial freedom across the world, the $1 billion crypto deposits on Celsius could be considered as the beginning, according to the company. The CEO at Celsius, Alex Mashinsky, added:

Financial equality and economic opportunity are more important today than ever before. We are experiencing a catalyst that requires a fundamental change in the way we earn and distribute wealth, not only in the US but around the world.

In November 2019, Cryptopolitan reported that the total cryptocurrency loan at Celsius had reached $4.25 billion, that is, after 13 months of operation. Meanwhile, the report only confirmed a $450 million in crypto deposits on Celsius, which is huge compared to the new release.
