- As CryptoPotato reported earlier today, one of the leading cryptocurrency lenders – Celsius Network – is facing major difficulties.
- Citing “extreme market conditions,” the company halted all withdrawals, swaps, and transfers between the accounts of its users, causing a stir within the crypto community.
- Shortly after, a rival company – Nexo – sent a letter of intent “to purchase remaining qualifying assets” of Celsius Network.

- Nexo took it to Twitter to confirm the news:
After what appears to be the insolvency of Celsius Network and mindful of the repercussions for their retail investors & the crypto community, Nexo has extended a formal offer to acquire qualifying assets of Celsius Network after their withdrawal freeze.
- The company believes that this will “go a long way in providing immediate liquidity to Celsius Network Clients.”
- Celsius Network has until June 20, 2022, at 4:30 AM UTC to respond.
