What is Celsius Network?
Celcius is a cryptocurrency lending platform that allows users to earn interest on their cryptocurrency holdings, or borrow fiat money like Australian dollars or stablecoins by depositing their crypto as collateral. By using cryptocurrency as collateral, users are able to access cash without the need to sell their coins. The CEL token is used for a range of features on the platform, as well as the ability to earn it in return for lending. Lenders are also entitled to a higher rate of interest depending on the amount of CEL they hold in their wallet, while borrowers can also get a discount on their repayments by holding CEL tokens.
Celsius Network (CEL) is the 62nd largest cryptocurrency in the world by market cap, valued at $2,412,870,831. The current price of Celsius Network is $5.71, which is 0.053% lower than yesterday.

What to consider when buying Celsius NetworkThe CEL token is used as part of a real-world business, which means you need to consider the risks associated with the underlying product as well as with cryptocurrencies in general.
- Customer or speculator?: If you plan to use the token on the platform, then you need to keep a few things in mind. In particular, you may want to calculate the amount of tokens you will need to receive discounts and bonuses, whether you are going to pay fees for using the token and what is required to earn additional tokens.
- Legal: Celsius is based in the US where cryptocurrency regulation is still ongoing and something of a grey area currently. As such, any crypto-related businesses may face challenges in the future depending on how the regulatory environment unfolds.
- Competitors: The crypto-lending space is becoming an increasingly popular field, with rival CeFi platforms such as Nexo, Crypto.com and BlockFi all having a strong presence in the space.
- Tokenomics: When assessing whether a token is a good long-term hold, you should consider what the token is used for, whether tokens are burnt when used (destroyed) and how new tokens are distributed. Keep in mind that Celsius users are rewarded with new tokens for using the platform, which will inflate the supply over time. On the flip side, users are motivated to hold a certain number of tokens for rewards, which may reduce availability in the open market.
