Buy CEL & Earn!

Buy your CEL and earn it too, right inside the Celsius app! That’s right — the long-awaited feature you’ve been asking for is finally here! As of today, Celsius users can now purchase CEL tokens (and 7 other top cryptocurrencies) directly from the app! Crypto purchases made through the Celsius app get deposited into the Celsius wallet enabling you to unlock the full potential of your digital assets! So whether you choose to earn, buy, or pay in CEL, there’s never been a better time to take advantage of CEL token utilities!

*Purchasing CEL tokens through the Celsius app is currently unavailable for US residents

Keep Calm with HODL Mode On

Introducing HODL Mode, a brand new tool that enables you to add an extra layer of security to your Celsius app. When HODL Mode is activated, all outbound activity from your Celsius app is temporarily disabled. You’ll be given a unique code when you set up HODL Mode, and users should follow the in-app instructions carefully before confirming their account status.

Upon deactivating HODL Mode, there will be a 24-hour waiting period before your outbound app settings are fully reinstated. This is an ideal feature for those who plan on holding onto their crypto for an extended period of time and do not anticipate routine withdrawals or other outgoing activities.

Score your Security

In addition to opting into HODL Mode, we’ve made some proactive updates that empower you to keep your account as secure as possible. When you go to your profile settings in your Celsius app, you’ll see a new “Security Overview” screen that provides you with a comprehensive overview of your account security.

Each Celsius member now has a security score based on which security options have been enabled for their account. This includes using two-factor authentication (2FA), setting whitelisted withdrawal addresses, and ensuring passwords and PINs are unique and follow best practices. Users can also see when their account credentials were last updated, and Celsius will now send timely reminders when it’s time to update and enhance your own account security.

Update your Celsius app today to find even more of our design upgrades, bug fixes, and performance enhancements all created to act in your best interest!
