8/20 Update from CEO Alex Mashinsky

Hi everyone-

I’m back in Vegas again this week. After doing a keynote at ChainXChange last week I flew to Toronto on Thursday for Fintech Canada. See my second battle with Nouriel Roubini here.

This week I’m in Las Vegas again for Blockshow Americas 2018. I just spoke this morning on a panel called “Wall Street vs Crypto: Fighting Back or Embracing New Opportunities?” You can probably guess what my take is.

Tomorrow Nouriel Roubini and I will be back on stage to discuss the usefulness of crypto in a follow-up conversation to our rowdy panel at the Milken Institute that got picked up by Bloomberg, New York Post, Fortune, Coin Telegraph, & The Merkle.

When interest?

I’m sure everyone’s interested to know how things are going with our ongoing buyback of CEL tokens. So far, we’ve bought over 1,920,000 CEL tokens, which are no longer on the market.

 

When rates?

We’re looking for lots of different coins, check out our rates below and get in touch with sales@celsius.network

When exchange?

You may have seen one of my recent AMAs where I talk about the exchanges and the way they take advantage of not only the ICOs but also their users in order to make as much money as possible.


CCN also found what we’re talking about of interest. You can read my op-ed in full on the CCN site where I go into detail about the problems with the exchanges vis-a-vis the crypto community and ICOs.

 

When App?

If you haven’t already, be sure to download the app.

 

We’ll be putting out another release in the next few days. This will probably be the last release before a major release at the beginning of September. You should be able to start depositing Litecoin (LTC) once you get this new version.

 

We’re also planning to drop a big surprise for our users this week, so be sure to download this next update once you see it and also make sure you’ve deposited some ETH or BTC with us.

When meet?

As I said above, I’m in Las Vegas today and tomorrow for the Blockshow Americas event – I’ll be speaking on a panel today and doing a keynote and debate tomorrow. Please come by and see us at our booth and say hello.

Have a great week everyone.
