Celsius Network CEO Alex Mashinsky has taken to Twitter to assuage customer concerns related to withdrawal issues, claiming that their funds are safe.

As reported by U.Today, Bitcoin, the largest cryptocurrency, dropped to a new 52-week low of $29,011 today. The market crash was caused by the collapse of Terra’s LUNA governance token and its UST stablecoin. The downfall of one of the biggest cryptocurrency projects had a ripple effect on the broader cryptocurrency market.

Mashinsky, however, claims that Celsius weathered extreme market volatility without experiencing any significant losses. He touted the company’s risk management frameworks that are meant to protect customers’ assets.

On Wednesday, rumors started flying about Celsius being involved in a potential bailout of Terra together with Jane Street Capital and Jump Trading. However, Mashinsky has definitely denied his company’s involvement.

Last month, Celsius updated its “Risk Disclosures” messaging to warn customers that its native CEL token faces significant regulatory risks.

Celsius also banned nonaccredited U.S. investors from earning rewards on its Earn platform.

One of the leading cryptocurrency lenders is facing severe regulatory scrutiny in the U.S. Regulators from Texas, New Jersey and Alabama alleged that the company had violated securities laws.
