Celsius Network is set to hold its final asset auction on October 17, 2022
FTX CEO Sam Bankman-Fried is reportedly mulling over buying Celsius Network assets next week.
A recent court filing filed by Celsius reveals that the embattled crypto lender platform will conduct its final bidding session on October 17, 2022.
Celsius Is All Set to Host Its Final Auction Event
Celsius Network has revealed a new timeline for its final auction event. The crypto lender platform will now be conducting its final bidding session on October 17, 2022, at 4:00 PM ET, alongside an auction, if necessary, on October 20, at 10:00 Eastern time.
Per the court filing filed with the US bankruptcy court for Southern New York, a sale hearing will be held on November 11, 1:00 PM ET, before chief US bankruptcy Judge Glenn Martin via Zoom.
Celsius Network, a prominent crypto lender platform, landed itself in troubled waters in July when the firm announced its decision to halt its deposits and withdrawals on the platform, citing extreme market conditions. The platform has received heavy criticism from the entire crypto community, which further spiralled out of control when the firm announced a deficit of 2.8 billion on its balance sheet.
In addition to this, Alex Mahinsky, CEO of Celsius Network, has recently submitted his resignation to the board. Mahinsky had reportedly withdrawn $10 million in the weeks before the firm halted deposits and withdrawals on its platform.
The auction, which is scheduled to go live on October 17, is said to be attended by a large number of interested parties. The CEO of FTX crypto platform, Sam Bankman-Fried, is also reportedly interested in purchasing the remaining assets of Celsius Network.
Last week, FTX.US won the first round of the Voyager asset auction by proposing a winning bid of $1.4 billion.
