New search tool shows full identities & how much users lost in Celsius bankruptcy.
Recently, a new search engine tool was revealed to have been made that allows anyone to be able to access and see the full names of users as well as details of just how much money they had lost as a result of the Celsius Network bankruptcy.
The New Tool
Not long ago, a big controversy was made after it was revealed that the privacy of now-bankrupt Celsius users were breached as their full name and information were released in a 14,000 page court document for Celsius’ bankruptcy case.
At the time, many in the community were outraged at the fact that any users’ full name and recent transactions on the Celsius platform could be easily accessible and seen by anyone in the world.
Now however, it’s been revealed that someone may have just used the information and data from these bankruptcy filings to create a new search engine tool that lets anyone access this information with more ease.
