#Celsians Let's take a minute to speculate on how CelsiusX could work and why it might be a massive gamechanger for @celsiusnetwork

Hold my hand, anon, and let's peer down the rabbit hole together.... 🕳️
1/ Per the teaser
we know that CelsiusX will be a wrapped token platform, allowing users to withdraw native tokens in the app to... any chain they want?

So we could be the first to get wrapped tokens, like ADA or DOT, on an ETH L2 like Polygon? Yes!
But what's the point? What to do with these tokens when we have them outside their native chain?
You know by now anon, one word: YIELD
That's where liquidity comes in. In the world of Defi on web3, there can be no utility without liquidity. This is what projects like OlympusDAO, Curve, Tokemak, Abracadabra, and many others figured out. It's the KEY.
Celsius says they will bootstrap massive liquidity for their wrapped tokens. But can they do it? Heck yes.

Celsius has a LOT of weight to throw around: If we were listed on DefiPulse where would we be? Number 1. We have the same assets as the other guys on there, after all
Back in August, Avalanche launched a $180M incentive program to attract the likes of Curve, Aave, Abracadabra, and more. Celsius is bigger than any one of them.
Any L1 or aspiring L2 looking to launch Defi services will be willing to give Celsius massive incentives to deploy our AUM there. What does this mean? Yield.

Yield gets you liquidity, liquidity gets you Defi apps. The apps can get you more yield... Repeat.
Why will those aspiring to Defi trust CelsiusX? Because they won't need to - the architecture will use cutting-edge chainlink oracles to constantly audit wrapped token proof of reserves.

Wrapped tokens ought to be trustless from the get go.
But it gets better. Users that find themselves with these wrapped tokens will realize that the best place to unwrap them... is Celsius.

Because remember Celsius is still in posession of the native tokens. What else could we do with them, anon? Do you remember our one word?
That's right, MOAR YIELD. We'll have to see how the UX ends up but I'd assume the user won't have to do anything.

Even if they don't want to withdraw the tokens, CelsiusX can still wrap and deploy them to... wherever the yield is the best!
Polygon? Avalanche? Arbitrum? Moonriver? doesn't matter. The L1s and their dapps will be coming TO US. We give them liquidity, they give us yield, users get more tokens. It's a win-win-WIN
This is why I'm convinced CelsiusX can make a difference in yield & in utility (2 sides same coin) thru deployments onto other chains

The wrapping service alone can be a new institutional-grade product for big players that want to move assets cross-chain with deep liqudity..
Where does all this extra yield and income go? And how does $CEL token partake in the benefits? That's where I think this gets really interesting. And that's a thread for another day - this one's already getting long!
But here are a few options off the top of my head:
-Yield directly to HODLers
-Yield bonuses gated by $CEL loyalty tier
-CelsiusDAO, revenue share, community empowerment + decision-making to drive further dapp development

Or some combination

OK, let's talk about $CEL token

Whole market has been ripping... Why is $CEL stagnant/down?

I mean, we just raised a whopper $400m, have tons of new launches coming up, and we’re burning all them tokens right? So what gives?
1/ I said about a year ago that the biggest risk I saw to $CEL was competition, not from banks obv, they’re already toast… from Defi
Look what happened, this year (and esp recent months) we’ve seen Defi evolve in ways we never even imagined
2/ The stuff you can do is crazy. The yields are crazy.

For the first time since 2018, I moved my stablecoins out of Celsius entirely, the yields in Defi are just better. And it’s not just stables…

Why can't we keep up with Defi?

I downloaded the @CelsiusNetwork app in Oct 2018.

As the community has grown and I hit this milestone of over $12k in earned interest passive income (all 100% from the app), I thought it might be interesting for some if I shared my story.

Thread 👇. . .
Firstly I don't think there is anything extra special about me. I got into crypto in 2017, made a shitload, got rekt, and started over.

I dedicated myself to blockchain adoption. At a conference in 2018, I ran into Mashinsky and saw (likely one of the earliest) presentations...
on MOIP and crypto passive income. @AlexMashinsky was patient enough to answer lots of my questions afterward (a quality which he has clearly kept, perhaps always had), and I hit the download button.
