Celsius Community eyes up rebrand as CEL token pumps and dumps

Alex Mashinky desires to rebrand his failed crypto lending firm Celsius Community as a custody service below new identify Kelvin.

In recordings heard by the New York Occasions, the discredited Celsius chief government officer advised employees of his plan to rebuild the corporate by providing crypto storage companies, an enormous departure from a enterprise mannequin constructed on unsustainable yield technology.

“Does it make the Pepsi style much less good?” Mashinsky requested, alluding to the truth that the second-rate caffeinated delicate drink filed for chapter. However that was over 90 years in the past.

“Delta filed for chapter. Do you not fly Delta as a result of they filed for chapter?” he queried. OK honest sufficient, that was solely in 2009.

However the query is, who would belief Celsius, sorry Kelvin, as custodian of your digital belongings?

We’ve seen what occurs when customers maintain their digital belongings on another person’s platform when Celsius went bust the primary time earlier this 12 months.

Customers are unlikely to get their a reimbursement for at the very least seven years, if the Mt. Gox chapter is something to go by.

“Not your keys, not crypto,” because the saying goes.

Apart from, {hardware} wallets like Ledger Nano (this isn’t an commercial for them) can help you chilly retailer as a lot crypto as you need with out anybody gaining access to your accounts.

There are few particulars of what Mashinsky has deliberate for Kelvin, so he might be about to revolutionise the crypto custody market, however this reporter is uncertain.

Such dramatic short-term fluctuations are normally indicative of a ‘pump and dump’, whereby merchants artificially inflate the worth of a token earlier than exiting their positions suddenly, thus crashing the market.

That is probably partially what occurred.

The #CelShortSqueeze Twitter marketing campaign has been working onerous to encourage CEL token upwards following the Might crash.

However a brief squeeze solely works if merchants maintain onto their baggage and evidently, not all CEL whales have the neighborhood spirit.

Although frankly something above zilch is half a miracle for token affiliated with the disgraced Celsius Community
