Several other firms, such as Celsius and Voyager, have already filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy to restructure their; financial income methods to survive.

Some other companies, especially those that provide capital or operate crypto exchanges. Like CoinFLEX, has stopped allowing people to withdraw their money.

On the other hand, SkyBridge has decided to restrict its customers’ withdrawals from one of its funds. As Celsius began cleaning up its financial mess, the fund followed suit and suspended withdrawals.
