Previously, NovaWulf was planning to take over all of the assets of crypto lender Celsius Network and merge them into a new firm after its debt was paid off.
During the next five years, NovaWulf will administer the new firm, which will have a new name and a new board of directors and will be traded using a somewhat unproven way of placing tokenized equities on the blockchain. The five-year management term is renewable. NovaW and the official bankruptcy committee, which represents their interests, will choose the board of directors. The proposal may go into action as early as June 30.
According to Marc D. Puntus, co-head of Centerview Partners, the investment banker working with Celsius throughout the bankruptcy process, the Celsius assets that NovaWulf will manage might be worth as much as $2 billion. According to court records, the assets in dispute include Celsius’s mining operation, loan portfolio, staked bitcoin, and other alternative investments.
Celsius previously stated that three times as many offers were received before the bid deadline. The UCC is analyzing those bids with Celsius to determine whether an offer or combination of bids optimizes value for account holders.
According to documents, the crypto lender approached 130 interested parties and signed non-disclosure agreements with 40 of them before selecting NovaWulf.
Celsius’ intentions for the bidding process have been authorized by a federal court in the United States and the United States Bankruptcy Court for the Southern District of New York. The debtor, in collaboration with the Commission, has concluded that executing the auction would maximize the debtor’s worth, as required under the bidding procedure.
