The Celsius company has denied rumors that the company’s CEO, Alex Mashinsk tried to flee the U.S. last week amid the ongoing liquidity crisis of the Celsius Network.
This is coming after the co-founder of the crypto analytics firm Digital Assets Data, Mike Alfred took to Twitter to raise alarm. Alfred claimed that Mashinsky attempted to leave the country last week via Morristown Airport in New Jersey.
A spokesperson for the company debunked the rumors and said the firm continues working on restoring liquidity. ”All Celsius employees — including our CEO — are focused and hard at work in an effort to stabilize liquidity and operations.
”To that end, any reports that the Celsius CEO has attempted to leave the U.S. are false” the statement reads.
Some industry observers in the crypto community have however expressed skepticism about Alfred’s tweets about Mashinsky, with many considering his allegations as FUD.
