A store of value and a medium of exchange — this is what conventionally we have all learned to treat money as. You hold on to your dollars and spend them when you need something. It’s been ingrained in all of us since we were children wanting to get candy from a gas station or ice cream from the ice cream truck. But if the behavior of federal banks has shown us anything in 2020, it’s that our medium of exchange might not be our best store of value.

We often get this question, so I wanted to address what stablecoin business means to Celsius.

What are stablecoins?

In short, a stablecoin is a type of cryptocurrency pegged to a stable asset, most commonly a government-backed currency (such as the US dollar) at a 1:1 ratio. Stablecoins are not subjected to the same volatility as other cryptocurrencies, hence the name stablecoin. …

It’s no secret that a hotly anticipated event is about to happen: the CEL token holding above $1.50 for ten days. Very few crypto startups have been able to deliver a fraction of what they promised in their whitepaper. And not only did Celsius create an extraordinary ecosystem in a mobile app — we delivered it to the community only a few months after the Token Generation Event. Innovative developments, feature improvements and services are added on a regular basis. Over and over, the original concepts we presented in our early drafts of the Celsius whitepaper are actually being realized. Usership has soared, the assets under management has surpassed $2B, loan issuance is hitting new records week over week, the CEL token utility is proven, the mission is inspired, the work done is good, and the end result is overwhelming. …

If you’re a CEL token holder, it’s likely you’ve had some reasons to CEL-ebrate in recent weeks. We at Celsius are thrilled to be achieving such rapid growth across our community from new customers, new additions to the Celsius team, and new partnerships that will help us bring Celsius to millions around the world!

In order to continue scaling at a sustainable rate and keep the Celsius flywheel spinning, our finance experts have made some adjustments to the CEL loyalty tier program.

As we go through Industrial Revolution #4 (please refer to part 1 and part 2 of my blog series for some of the relevant thoughts), there are a number of emerging technologies and related concepts that we hear about daily. FinTech and blockchain are amongst some of them. FinTech is the term used to refer to innovations in the financial and technology crossover space. Blockchain is a digital system in which an immutable record of transactions is maintained across multiple computers linked in a peer-to-peer network. The beginnings of blockchain technology date back to the mid-’90s (did you know one of the “founding fathers” of the blockchain, Scott Stornetta, is a Celsius advisor?!), and there are arguably many applications to utilize blockchain technology across any and every industry. …
