SBF from FTX eyes to bid on Celsius assets

FTX is also in the process of raising a $1 billion funding round, the same person said. That round hasn’t closed yet or been made public.

In addition to its lending business, Celsius, which filed for bankruptcy in July, owns large Bitcoin mining operations and a crypto custody business. It’s unclear if Bankman-Fried’s crypto companies — the FTX crypto exchange or trading firm Alameda Research — are considering bidding for some or all of Celsius’s assets.
