Celsius Network the industry-leading cryptocurrency interest-earning platform, announces today that it has surpassed $1 billion in total cryptocurrency deposits less than 2 years after launching its mobile app. This announcement comes on the heels of Celsius acquiring more than 110,000 active users and after achieving profitability earlier this year.
According to public data available through the Celsius app, the crypto company has also paid more than $17 million in interest rewards to its community of HODLers to date. Celsius has paid out over $12 million in BTC interest, more than all other crypto lending platforms in the industry combined. Over $3 million of the interest distributed has been in the company’s native CEL token, which has also seen significant growth, a new all-time high, and is now part of the CMC top 100 list.
Celsius Network’s mission is to make financial services fair, transparent, and rewarding. Customers can hold 26 of their digital assets using the Celsius app and use their coins as collateral to borrow USD or stablecoins at the industry’s lowest rates. Celsians also earn weekly compounding interest rewards on their assets at some of the highest rates available in the marketplace. Celsius attributes its exponential growth to its community-centric business model and its commitment to return 80% of its revenue to its customers. More than anyone else in the entire crypto universe.
“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,” says Alex Mashinsky, CEO of Celsius Network. “Anyone who experiences rejection or lack of social and financial mobility due to race, gender, credit score or job status can download the Celsius app and instantly start earning up to 100 times more than what they thought was possible. Celsians earn up to 11.9% annually on their crypto assets without paying any fees, credit checks, or other roadblocks invented by traditional banks to slow us down. Since day one, our mission has been to put financial freedom into the hands of 7 billion people, and $1 billion in retail deposits is only the beginning for us. We look forward to the day when billions of people leave the antiquated traditional banks behind and choose to unbank with Celsius. We proved we can bring the power back to the people.”
