After announcing that they have frozen all withdrawals from their platform due to “extreme market conditions,” Celsius is taking steps to assure users that their funds are still safe and that there is “absolutely nothing to worry about and we would never lie to you about that.”
This morning, Celsius invited longtime Bitcoin investor, Roger Ver, to meet with their financial team and inspect their statements so that he could lend his credibility to their public relations messaging and dispel any comparisons to Mt. Gox.
Ver said in a recorded video statement that he has “reviewed everything at Celsius and determined that users funds are indeed safe,” and that “Celsius has no reason at all” to take advantage of him or show him forged documents.
Ver went on to add “they’re nice guys. Did you know they support Bitcoin Cash? Well they do. I had just noticed some discrepancies in their documents when their founder spoke up loudly to tell me about about his love for BCH, so I figured I must have misread things and we spent most of the time talking about how you can pay with Bitcoin Cash at the beach hotdog stand I frequent in St. Kitts.”
TST fact checkers, who follow a rigorous zero-confirmation, trustless fact checking process, were able to independently verify that Roger Ver was not taken advantage of. Celsius users can sleep quietly tonight.
