CEL widened its losses over the past 24 hours, dropping 13.03% to trade at around $1.12. The token’s market cap amounted to $268.95 million.

FTX founder Sam Bankman-Fried said earlier this week that the firm will pay “fair market value” for Celsius’ assets. But Celsius users may be in for a long wait since the firm’s corporate structure, which was changed earlier this year, prioritizes shareholders over users regarding returning assets in the case of a bankruptcy.
