Multimillion Dollar Bounty Offered for Crypto Liquidation Whistleblowers

Whistleblowers with evidence of a crypto liquidation conspiracy could receive a $20 million dollar bounty for speaking up. Sources allege that there’s a scheme to liquidate cryptocurrency as an attack on Celsius, a cryptocurrency scheme marketed as an alternative lender.

The Celsius liquidation scheme

Celsius claims they want to “disrupt the financial industry” and help users find “financial freedom through crypto.” The company reportedly has almost $12 billion in assets and has issued over $8 billion in loans. They also claim users can make over 18 percent in interest, and take out loans for as little as 0.1 percent APR. Interest is paid through the CEL token, issued on the Ethereum blockchain and usually tradable to Bitcoin on major exchanges.

The problem is in the fine print: “Celsius is not a bank, depository institution, custodian or fiduciary and the assets in your Celsius account are not insured by any private or governmental insurance plan (including FDIC or SIPC), nor are they covered by any compensation scheme (including FSCS).” In other words, if there’s a problem with the company, users could lose everything. Their contribution amounts to an unsecured loan to Celsius.

On June 12, 2022, Celsius announced “Due to extreme market conditions, today we are announcing that Celsius is pausing all withdrawals, Swap, and transfers between accounts.” The CEL token value has plummeted, and Celsius is now “utilizing decentralized finance protocols to borrow against its retail lenders’ money in an attempt to generate the yield it needs to pay the 18 percent returns it promises customers.”

If the crypto market continues to collapse, Celsius will liquidate their collateral by protocol. Some suspect that Celsius has been the victim of a targeted attack—and anyone with evidence will receive a $20 million reward.

Testimonials
  • "Steve Kardell was terrific in representing me in some very adversarial discussions with Citigroup and also later represented me in my testimony before the Financial Crisis Inquiry Commission."  -Richard Bowen, Citigroup Whistleblower

  • "Incredible knowledge of employee related concerns and equally brilliant knowledge of health care regulations, standards of practice. I would recommend this firm to anyone."  -V.B.

  • "Reaching out to Steve Kardell was the best decision I made. His ability to provide immediate insight and direction was very powerful, and a huge relief during a very stressful time period. For anyone struggling with a whistleblower situation, I would highly recommend at least speaking with Steve. After a 10 minute call with him, I had a better understanding of what I was dealing with. Even better, he gave me some immediate hope. In the end Steve did a better job than I thought was possible. Steve was able to get in contact with people in my organization, that I didn’t have access to. Because of his years of experience, he already has contacts in many organizations in Dallas. The entire situation was handled peacefully. I was impressed by his ability to “keep the peace”–rather than creating a battle with the organization. The reason I didn’t reach out to a lawyer initially, was because I thought it would mean an immediate end to any hope of a positive relationship with the company. Steve was able to address my concerns, and in the end I was able to continue to work for them."  -KS

  • "Never thought my career would end like it did after 30 years of service. I was part of the first round of the so called reduction of force. I asked myself how can I be part of this with 30 years of seniority. How did they pick these 90 plus employees? Now, the culture of this organization made you question every decision they made. It wasn’t what you knew it’s was a culture of who you know. Nonetheless, I did not accept their severance package. I immediately starting looking for an attorney who would take on my case. After the initial call to Steve I had hope again. He was open and honest about everything and reassured me he would do his best for me, and he did. I had an awesome outcome. Thanks Steve you’re the best."  -S.S.
