Problems in the Celsius Network 

For days now, Celsius has been controversially trending due to the lending platform’s decision to halt withdrawals, swaps, and transfers between accounts. The main point of concern is that Celsius prevented its users from accessing their money with prior notice. 

Notably, this decision didn’t sit well with many, and it has sparked unrest in the community. Members of the community had frowned at the decision, including threats of a lawsuit against Celsius.

Research into Celsius’s stand regarding the situation revealed that the firm has borrowed DAI with a current collateralization ratio of 195.93 percent with over $545 million in locked WBTC as collateral. This data is provided by Oasis; a protocol that aids users to borrow DAI against approved collateral. In addition, Celsius currently has a liquidation price that’s 26 percent beneath the present price of BTC, $68,347.88. This situation is a point of concern for users because if Celcius doesn’t increase its collateral, the whole position which is close to half a billion will get liquidated on-chain.

Notably, the firm has input more collateral numerous times since the inception of the troubles but has yet to repay the loan. Within that period, their position went below 5 percent away from liquidation. 

Worth noting, that members of the community had bemoaned the silence of Celsius during this turbulent time. Before when the firm halted withdrawals, members of the community discovered that the firm sent $320 million to FTX without any explanation to the community. 

This indicated that the team is working behind the scene, yet without proper engagement or assurance of when they’ll resume withdrawal.

At the moment, the blog statement came at the best time, though not what members of the Celsius community want to hear, still it indicates the team’s willingness to see to the end of the matter and offer the best solution.
