The Celsius Wallet
The Celsius Wallet will be one of the only online crypto wallets designed to allow members to use coins
as collateral to get a loan in dollars, and in the future, to lend their crypto to earn interest on deposited
coins (when they’re lent out).
Crypto Collateral
Members will be able to borrow USD against
their crypto holdings in their wallet which will
be used as collateral. Our goal is to allow anyone
who’s in need of cash to easily borrow from the
Celsius platform without having to sell their
crypto holdings. The ability to take loans in dollars
against your cryptocurrency will be available
immediately after the CEL tokens are issued.
Crypto Interest
In the future, through the Celsius Network,
cryptocurrencies deposited by members into their
Celsius Wallet will be available on the network
for immediate borrowing and shorting. Coins that
are lent from member wallets will begin to accrue
interest in ...

Introducing: The Celsius Degree Token (CEL)
In conjunction with the launch of the Celsius Crypto Wallet, we’re excited to introduce the Celsius Degree
Token (CEL). Immediately after our Token Generation Event, members will be able to use their CEL tokens
to secure access to loans in dollars using their crypto as collateral. In the future, members who deposit
coins in their Celsius Wallets will also be able to earn Degree Tokens as a reward for lending to the
We’re designing our CEL (ERC20 Degree Token) to be the backbone of the Celsius Network, creating a
value-driven lending and borrowing platform for all our members.
The Celsius Degree Token (CEL), at the moment of the
Token Generation Event (TGE), will have utilities including:
• the ability to become a member in the Celsius
platform and community
• the ability to deposit your cryptocurrencies in
the Celsius wallet
• the ability to apply for dollar loans with
cryptocurrencies as collateral
• the a...

Banking is Broken
Celsius is driven to create a financial platform where your interests are our top priority.
Sometimes You Just Need Cash
Members may be holding crypto, but now they need to buy a car or pay
down expensive credit card debt. Unfortunately, most car dealerships or
banks still don’t want cryptocurrency. We believe crypto assets hold real
value, and it should be easy for crypto holders to leverage this value to
borrow cash.
Crypto Collateral = Cash in Hand
We want to make borrowing cash a whole lot easier. Celsius’ goal is to
allow its members to use their crypto holdings as collateral in order to
secure low interest loans in dollars. Rather than selling their crypto (pay
taxes and forfeit potential future gains), with Celsius they can leverage
their cryptocurrency to borrow the cash they need today, while still
maintaining their crypto portfolio for future value.

The 99% Not The 1%
Most financial institutions still don’t get cryptocurrency. They want to
short the market because they’re blinded by being so late to the party on
this one. Right now, there’s no good place for them to go to bet against the
cryptocurrency market other than expensive futures markets like the CME
and centralized exchanges.
Sure, Go ahead and short
Hedge funds, family offices and crypto funds still want to play in the
world of cryptocurrency. Fortunately for us, they are willing to pay high
fees to do so, so many of them want to short the market. After the Token
Generation Event is completed, we will begin working on our platform that
will allow us to make the most of their greed by taking up to
50% cash
deposits and charging them interest when they hedge. This lets us pass
most of the earnings back to the community and lend more dollars to the
rest of the Celsius community.
Cryptocurrency prices are volatile, and ...

Let’s Get Into the Tech

risks, and maintain the safety and growth of the ecosystem.”

Building Every Day
We’re not thinking about a product, we’re building one. Our
team of 10 plus developers has already produced a working
prototype of both our mobile wallet for lenders and our
shorting platform for borrowers. Both products are now
being beta tested and we plan for our initial public release in
Fall of 2018.

Technical Specifications
Security and Risk
Celsius is building the platform with security at its core. We will use bank-
grade security to keep our members’ assets and data safe. From multi-factor
authentication, to encryption, to private-key double vaults, and more. Our
software is designed with security in mind.
Crypto assets will be distributed among several wallets and top exchanges. In
addition, we will store a cold wallet treasury to provide last-resort insurance in
case of a catastrophic event. We will also employ white-hat hackers and third
party cyber security solutions to provide a continuous cover layer of audit and
Community Support
We’re here for the cryptocurrency community, our goal is to support the
community by providing them with access to loans using their crypto holdings as
collateral and to also provide the community with a way to earn interest on their
crypto assets.

Celsius’ Token Economics
We’re building the Celsius Platform to allow our members to deposit, lend and
borrow a variety of different crypto assets. The Celsius Degree Token (CEL) will be
key for users who wish to lend or borrow.
Degrees are a platform utility token that is rewarded to crypto holders in the
Celsius Wallet as interest on their coins. That interest is generated from fees,
in CEL tokens, collected from institutional traders who use the assets pool.
Celsius has a non-for-profit model where proceeds are used to cover all costs
and membership growth, while most are distributed back to the members
When the token is issued, members who own CEL tokens will be able to apply
for and receive dollar loans against their current holdings. In addition, users who
accept the loan may pay the interest in CEL tokens for a discount.
