We’ve built companies from the ground up, served hundreds of millions of users and completed multiple exits for billions of dollars (including an IPO).
This isn’t our first rodeo. Our team of experienced entrepreneurs knows how to take a concept from ideation to full execution on a global scale.
Our founder, Alex Mashinsky, has filed over 30 patents including the original patent on VoIP technology. He previously founded several multi-billion dollar businesses including Arbinet (IPO 2004), TransitWireless and GroundLink. A cryptoholder since 2013, Alex serves as an advisor and investor to several Blockchain companies including Sirin Labs, MicroMoney and Ties Network.
The platform also enables margin traders (hedge funds and crypto funds) to borrow crypto-assets for: hedging, shorting, deferring taxes and locking in profits. Celsius does not take any positions and does not act as a counterparty to any trade.

Opportunities:Earning interest while assets are deposited at a wallet is a new idea and should be attractive to many users who are just holding their cryptocurrencies anyways.The project is led by a team who had created successful ventures in the tech industry multiple times before. We believe that in entrepreneurship, past success is a strong indicator of future success.Celsius makes it easy to become a lender – users simply store their assets at the wallet. This makes onboarding lenders easier which may lead to a lower borrowing rate.CEL tokens will have immediate utility (applying for dollar loans and receiving a discount on interests) at the moment of token generation event.
Concerns:In cryptocurrency, the trend is slowly moving towards Proof-of-Stake (PoS), which allows coin holders to receive extra holdings when they hold onto their coins. Therefore, the interest earned on the Celsius wallet needs to be higher than the return from staking coins.
Conclusion:Overall, we are neutral about the short-term potential of this ICO but like its long-term potential. Our thoughts of the tokens for short term and long term are as follows:For short-term holding:Neutral. In the current market environment, it is getting a lot harder to reach hard cap with unmet demand. Celsius’ fund raising amount of $50 million makes it difficult to fill the hard cap, leaving no unmet demand. For long-term holding:Good. We like the project’s idea which is backed by an all-star team who had created successful startups in the past. Cryptocurrency lending projects are easier to gain traction compared to projects in industries where the use of cryptocurrency is not prevalent yet. Celsius Network also makes it easy to become a borrower. With the strong team in place, we believe it has a good chance to succeed.

The Celsius pre-sale already took place, and the company raised $30 million from accredited investors during that pre-sale. The general crowdsale takes place in January 2018.
Celsius is creating a P2P platform with the aim of evolving the future of borrowing and lending in a decentralized environment of blockchain technology similar to Hamster, Storiqa, Hade, Flying Money, Havven and Amon.
