Notably, 98% of account holders endorsed the strategy. Celsius strategically increased the available amount by $250 million through converting altcoins to Bitcoin and Ethereum. The bankruptcy plan introduces Ionic Digital, a new Bitcoin mining company managed by Hut 8, offering creditors equity ownership.

Upon securing necessary approvals, Ionic Digital is preparing to publicly debut its stock, heralding a positive turn for Celsius amidst the challenges of the crypto market.
