Chapter 11 bankruptcy pauses any attempts at civil litigation from creditors, and allows Celsius time to get its finances in order to repay its debts.

Celsius saw its digital asset holdings dwindle to a mere $1.7 billion as of July 14, down from $14.6 billion since the end of March. The documents also show that Celsius owes $4.7 billion to its customers, almost three times what it holds in digital assets. Celsius also holds $170 million in cash held in a bank, but the rest of the assets are tied up in mining equipment ($720 million), outstanding loans ($620 million) and other assets ($450 million). The documents also somehow account for $600 million in the platform’s CEL token, a much higher value than the total market capitalization of the coin. The firms claimed that most of the drop was due to the collapse in crypto prices, shrinking its assets by $12.3 billion.

The U.S. Trustee is currently in the process of forming and appointing a committee of creditors. These committees are typically made up of the seven largest unsecured creditors of the debtor, and help oversee the bankruptcy proceedings, investigate the debtor’s conduct and business operations, and help the court formulate a reorganization plan for the company’s debt.

In the last seven days, the world’s most popular digital token, Bitcoin, has jumped by as much as 15%. As a result, crypto-related stocks climbed in tandem alongside a broader rally in the equity markets.

In addition, among crypto miners, Riot Blockchain Inc. (NASDAQ: RIOT) and Marathon Digital Holdings Inc. (NASDAQ: MARA) in the last five days have gained 44.44% and 64.95%, respectively.

Armed robbers have plundered a large crypto mining facility not far from the Russian capital, the Russian crypto news outlet Bits.media. The attackers took away four containers with around 100 graphics processing units (GPUs) and other hardware used to extract digital currencies. Law enforcement authorities have estimated the value of the stolen mining equipment at around 1 million rubles (over $18,000 at the time of writing).

This is another case of theft of coin minting hardware in Russia after the operators of a mining hotel in Irkutsk disappeared in June, stealing mining rigs worth around $1.9 million from their clients. The number of such incidents has increased over the past few years, along with the growing popularity of mining.

Bitcoin mining is among those crypto-related activities that are yet to be regulated in the Russian Federation. At the same time, Russian authorities have been taking steps to limit the spread of home crypto mining by raising electricity rates for Russians minting with improvised installations in their basements and garages. The phenomenon has caused excessive consumption and breakdowns in residential areas in regions with heavily subsidized electricity for the population.(Bitcoin.com)
