Crypto lender Celsius (CEL) has repaid $142.8 million worth of the stablecoin Dai (DAI) to Maker (MKR) protocol, according to data from DeFi Explorer. The repayments were conducted through four separate transactions.
Celsius still has $82 million in outstanding debts to Maker Protocol. Celsius’ losses currently stand at $667.2 million, out of $1.8 billion in lifetime investments.
The lender’s liquidation price on its Wrapped Bitcoin (wBTC) loan has dropped to $4,966.99 BTC, from $8,840 BTC, as soon as Celsius made a $64 million DAI payment on July 4.

Celsius is one of many crypto companies hit by the results of extreme market conditions within the past few months. The lending firm has paused operations in withdrawals in mid-June, and has onboarded new legal counsel to advise for restructuring.

Previously, conversations on Celcius’ unsustainable business models had included advertising annual percentage yields (APYs) of up to 18.63% on crypto deposits.
It can be seen that Celcius is trying to stay afloat amongst record crypto market lows, and boost its credibility as a platform. Despite liquidity issues and reports of insolvency, Celsius has been still paying weekly rewards as of last week.
