Crypto firm Celsius pauses transfers, withdrawals as markets tumble

Cryptocurrency lending firm Celsius Network will pause withdrawals and transfers between accounts due to “extreme market conditions”, the company said.

 Cryptocurrency lending firm Celsius Network will pause withdrawals and transfers between accounts due to “extreme market conditions," the company said on Monday, in the latest sign of pressure in the crypto industry.

Bitcoin extended earlier declines after Celsius’s announcement, falling more than 6% to as low as $24,888, an 18-month low. Ether , the world’s second-largest cryptocurrency, dropped more than 8% to $1,303, its lowest since March 2021.

“We are taking this necessary action ... in order to stabilize liquidity and operations while we take steps to preserve and protect assets,” the company said in a blog post.

Celsius Network, which raised $750 million in funding late last year, is a significant player in crypto lending. It offers interest-bearing products to customers who deposit their cryptocurrencies with the company, and lends out crypto currencies to earn a return.
