According to the court on Sept. 22, Celsius shareholders have requested official legal representation representing their interest in bankruptcy proceedings. filing.
There is a clear need for this fiduciary statement because, according to the filing, there are only two financial stakeholder groups: retail customers and shareholders.
Shareholders argue that the Unsecured Creditors Committee (UCC) is focused on ensuring retail customers get the most value without considering shareholders. This means that no one adequately represents the interests of shareholders, and any restructuring plan could affect their interests.
Evidence of this is Celsius’ assertion that “UCC is (the) partner and all these cases are about customers.”
A shareholder said:
“We urgently demand trustees with access, standing and resources comparable to those enjoyed by UCC to represent their interests.”
Those shareholders participated in a $750 million funding round months before Celsius filed for bankruptcy.
Shareholders want Celsius to ‘dollarize’ retail crypto holdings

If this motion is accepted, the cryptocurrency’s value increase during the proceedings could go to shareholders.
A hearing on the filing is scheduled for October 6, with court appearances and claims proceedings expected to begin on the same day. However, you can still file your appeal until next week.
