Celsius Network (https://celsius.network/), cryptocurrency platform announced that it has onboarded over 100 institutional clients. In order to use Celsius services, institutions must complete a rigorous KYC and AML application and evaluation process. Institutions represent the demand side of the Celsius marketplace with over 50,000 retail HODLers balancing out the supply side. The Celsius Blockchain based platform operates unlike many other traditional B2B lending marketplaces in which institutions typically represent the supply side with retail borrowers the demand side.
This announcement speaks to Celsius Network’s broader mission of becoming the Dapp that sparks the mass adoption of the Blockchain by helping to bring the next 100 million people into the crypto industry and distributing 80% of profits back to its depositor community.. In addition to the fast growth in the institutional realm, Celsius has also shown notable growth for its retail services.

“It’s amazing to see so many institutions choosing to work with us, picking up the baton from retail investors and scale their support for cryptocurrencies as the next major asset class,” said Alex Mashinsky, CEO and founder of Celsius Network. “By bringing more pro players into crypto, we are able to keep the supply and demand in balance and provide even greater rewards and services to our depositor community of HODLers.”
