Celsius Faces Liquidity Crisis, but how are Other Crypto Firms Faring? – Blockchain News, Opinion, TV and Jobs

By Marcus Sotiriou, Analyst on the UK primarily based digital asset dealer GlobalBlock

Global markets took a catastrophic hit yesterday, because the Nasdaq was down 4.60% and the S&P 500 was down 3.88%. Crypto suffered essentially the most, as Bitcoin dropped over 20% to succeed in a low of $20,800. Ever for the reason that crypto rally in November, in response to Bitcoin ETF Futures product being launched, crypto has been on a ruthless downtrend with little signal of reduction. Bitcoin has correlated with the Nasdaq very tightly this 12 months, and truly carried out higher up till May. When UST and LUNA collapsed final month, which had a mixed worth of round $100 billion, this commenced a downward spiral which exacerbated cryptos decline in opposition to the Nasdaq.

The market stays justifiably frightened of the potential impacts of Celsius turning into bancrupt, while nonetheless having billions of belongings underneath administration. The decline of their belongings underneath administration has been exceptional, falling from $28 billion in November to round $3 billion immediately.

I believe Celsius’s liquidity points raises critical considerations about excessive yields on many lending platforms, and crypto critics will really feel extra assured of their views across the legitimacy of DeFi. I agree that individuals needs to be cautious with lending corporations providing profitable yields of double-digits on belongings like Bitcoin and Ethereum. People ought to contemplate the dangers concerned like sensible contract exploits, lenders turning into bancrupt and whether or not the protocol has been stress examined. We are nonetheless within the early section of crypto, the place many DeFi merchandise are being examined and selectivity will lead to many failing alongside the way in which.

We are seeing impacts throughout the board of centralised lenders, as BlockFi can be dealing with issues too. They introduced in a weblog submit immediately that it’s letting go of 170-200 workers, which is 20% of the lender’s whole employees headcount.

This follows a string of established crypto corporations reducing worker numbers, due to the continued chaos taking place on this market downturn. Crypto.com CEO, Kris Marszalek, stated on Friday that the corporate is shedding round 260 workers.

However, unlucky occasions with lenders like Celsius and different crypto corporations won’t forestall savvy buyers from investing straight into mainstream cryptocurrencies. The intrinsic worth of borderless, permissionless and blockchain-native belongings will proceed to thrive in the long run.
