Celsius Customer Data Leak Surfaces in New Document

Celsius Customer Data Leak Surfaces in New Document
  • Allegations regarding Celsius’ customer data leak has now been confirmed.
  • The document, which contains the names of Celsius customers and their crypto assets, is available for the public eye. 
  • Recently, Celsius executives were accused of having withdrawn crypto before filing for bankruptcy.

The rumors are true: bankrupt crypto lending firm Celsius has leaked customer names and how much cryptocurrency each had with the company.

Stocks and crypto investor Gurgavin Chandhoke shared the document that showed all the names of Celsius customers. Specifically, this document is the bankruptcy filing submitted to the Southern District Court of New York.

Back in June 2022, Celsius admitted that it has shared all of its customer data with a third party. However, the firm did not give out further details. Now, the document is now available for every interested person to see.

The recent tragedy follows news that some of the firm’s top executives have cashed out more than $17 million right before filing for bankruptcy. 

In detail, the company’s former CEO and CSO Alex Mashinsky and Daniel Leon, respectively, withdrew cryptocurrencies such as Bitcoin (BTC), Ethereum (ETH), and USDC, as well as the firm’s native token Celsius (CEL) right before suspending withdrawals back in May.

Only the aforementioned names were observed to have withdrawn their crypto. In fact, other Celsius executives were not accused to have done the same.

The continuous assault of negative news on Celsius has caused its native token to plummet anew. In the last 24 hours, CEL has lost another 15% of its value and is currently trading at $1.13 per piece, down from $1.34 since yesterday.
