As a peer-to-peer (P2P) lending company facilitating borrowing and lending of cryptocurrencies, Celsius Network has come a long way. And in a recent press release, the platform announced receiving over 50,000 Bitcoin (BTC) deposits in the last 20 months.
As a matter of fact, between August 2018 and August 2019, Celsius Apps recorded deposits of close to 20,000 BTC. However, since Q3 of 2019 to date, the platform has witnessed all-time high deposits amounting to be over $30,000.
Operating in contrast to the legacy banking model, Celsius Network is a fair, rewarding, and transparent interest-earning platform. And this has attributed to the phenomenal growth of the network in 2019. Undeterred by the economic downturn imposed by COVID-19, the company’s BTC deposits are breaking records.
When we launched @CelsiusNetwork on June 2018 we had big dreams and a small team. We just crossed 50,000 BTC in depoists in the Celsius app in less than two years. All credit goes to the 91,147 community members who entrusted us with their life savings. https://t.co/FtK27vWtSu

Moreover, the team believes that the all-time high BTC deposits follow the remarkable growth curve of the company in 2020. And it has already outperformed 2019 by over 60%.
Over the last several months, the platform has experienced unprecedented highs in unique depositors and app downloads. Precisely, it has acquired 100,000 active users to date. With this, it is now a big family of 91,147 community members who put in their complete trust into the platform.
