How is everyone with Voyager/Celsius accounts doing? Holding up ok?

Just wanted to ask – how is everyone, especially those with their savings/emergency funds/main accounts with Voyager/Celsius doing?

My savings was at Voyager. Since the bankruptcy I’ve taken up a part time job to do in between my full time job. I also stopped going out, eating out, and about to sell some personal belongings to help me build back a small emergency fund to feel a little more secure and make it through this recession. I’m sure I’ll be ok but it has been difficult psychologically.

How has everyone holding up?

  1. I have some stuff on Celsius, but was smart enough to spread out my crypto. Enough lost to piss me off, but not enough to make me commit the ultimate act of self-will.

    The recent email leak kind of pushed me into a fit of rage, it seems like their bungling stupidity is almost cartoon at this point. With the amount of obfuscation/incompetence/fraud im expecting a long bankruptcy, so not paying it too much mind

  2. I’m like the crew of the Star Trek Voyager. A bit annoyed at the shit I’ve found myself in, but determined to get back to where I started.

  3. I lost pretty much all my crypto on Celsius. Unfortunately, I wanted to pull my crypto but got delayed due to that stupid HODL mode and the fact that my whitelisted addresses were old addresses that I no longer used and needed to be changed. I wanted to protect my crypto from hackers or impulsive spending, but in hindsight, I probably needed to protect my crypto from Celsius and its scumbag liar of a CEO.

    My savings from working two part-time jobs while studying full-time at University were practically all in there as I thought holding a couple thousand USDC with 7% APY, about 0.1 BTC, and a whole ETH at something like 5% were realistic yield numbers. For reference, EQ Bank in Canada offered nearly 3-5% interest on GICs, so I thought Celsius’s numbers weren’t unreasonable.

    Right now, I’ve just stopped looking into Celsius, and will accept whatever happens, even if I lose it all. Fortunately, I only invested what I could afford to lose, and I guess in my mind, I lost it all. I won’t be missing rent payments, I won’t be going hungry, I don’t have credit card debt, and I guess I’m doing roughly okay. It feels horrible knowing that my years of being sleep-deprived, socially-alone, overworked, and absolutely stressed out were just stolen from me, but now at least I learned something.

    The funds I earned were meant to pay off my student loans once I graduated with my Masters next year, but I guess I’ll have to work a couple extra years to pay it off now. I’ve taken up a part-time job while doing my Masters to rebuild my savings and regrow my student-loan-payment-fund. Despite losing all my crypto, I’m still putting about 1/3 of what I earn into Bitcoin and Ethereum, but this time, I’ve smartened up a little. My first paycheck post-Celsius went to a Ledger Nano S.

    This is the first and last time I’m putting anything onto CeFi crypto platforms.

    Fuck you, Mashinsky. I thought you were perhaps different. But you’re just another scammer.

  4. Frustrated my Voyager account is either gone or will be settled for a fraction of its value. My fault for leaving everything online “in case a big move up triggers my sell targets”. About 30% of my crypto value is in Voyager. Going forward, all my crypto is offline except what is within 20% of the sell target, plus alerts for when the price reaches that 20% strike zone; that way I can move online and set the sell order.

  5. Someone with your work ethic and discipline will always be ok. Others should take note. Me on the other hand, I’m buying lottery tickets… your plan is much better.

  6. I learnt that there is only one CEO in the world that can be trusted.

    Bitcoin CEO. Never sold one btc, never took a cent from the people.

    That is a real leader, unlike all the scammy governments and CEOs in this crypto industry.

  7. Well, a fellow at work with over 12k locked in fixed term stakes with Celsius took a week and a half of PTO starting the other day.

    I’m hoping the fact that we’ve shared conversations regarding crypto and our personal holdings alone is enough for him to “you’re cool” me if he plans a workplace shooting.. Chances are he’s actively applying and interviewing for other places to see his options

    Real talk though, he’s normally a happy and outgoing guy, lately he looks constantly hurried and anxious. He’s got a wife and two kids at home, I couldn’t imagine over investing and losing so much when others depend on me.

  8. Interesting, I wished I thought about that. Im not doing crypto anymore after this, now that I realize I didn’t understand all the risks. I just can not risk having my savings wiped out again, im in my mid 30s and it’s tough starting over now as is.

  9. Most of my speculation coins were in Voyager, but I had my main bag of AVX, and XMR there too…:(
    Can’t do much but move on and hope for at least 10% return on it. But I know I will be kicking myself for the next few years when those coins go back up…

  10. I had a decent sum on voyager got most of it out. Still about 13k in usd left I’m hopeful I should get back, maybe 2k in crypto I doubt I’ll ever see. Not the best experience in my life but I’m thankful I saw the warning signs on this sub and other places and made the moves that I could. Hope everyone is doing okay.

  11. While I lost a large amount relative to people here, I had 5% of my crypto into Celsius, so I’m fine. I diversified. Moreover I’ve written before that I basically life my life off fiat. Crypto is long haul investments that sit on the side and I don’t even touch. I think far too many people get greedy thinking crypto is their only way out, their only way to get rich, etc. If you always think like that then you’ll likely be throwing money around irresponsibly.

    If you’re flipping out over Celsius/Voyager, you’ve invested too much, plain and simple. Moreover I really recommend people learn about some [basic personal finances](https://np.reddit.com/r/CryptoCurrency/comments/ttud87/this_sub_lack_of_financial_education_is_extremely/) and asset allocation before coming into the crypto space.

  12. With losing in luna, Celsius, and then voyager, I’m tempted to sell most of my coins and keep just the ones I like the most.

    I’m def getting out of the crap coin business

  13. Yeah man, I’m so sorry… it’s been rough for me too; I had my life savings on there and I almost withdrew it after seeing a Trader University video about Celsius imploding…. Didn’t act, was warned…. Totally haunted by it every single day…..

    It’s beyond horrifying what they’ve done to us, psychologically especially. It’s especially striking when you compare it to all of Alex‘s statements over the years about how he was for the people and doing it for the people, and you’d always have access to your funds and, “ the worst thing that’ll happen is you’ll get your coins back,“ stuff like that really is a gut punch. Knowing that I trusted him is fucking sickening.

  14. I was one of the lucky ones. I got my money off mere days before they froze accounts. I just had this gut feeling that come July first they wouldn’t have the liquidity to dispense June’s interest with all of the bad news coming out. Sure enough, July 1st. The ridiculous part is they credited my account with $500 worth of interest for the coins I spent the latter half of June scrambling to get out. Now I can’t withdraw that, obviously, so why even “credit” it to my account? Personally I don’t expect to see a dime. But I’m not going to lie, when they shrunk the daily withdrawal amount I still had a lot of money locked up in there (to me) that I was already rushing to get out. I was very distraught for a few days. Didn’t get much sleep until the final withdrawal cleared.

  15. Celsius victim here. Had a decent amount of eth and btc on Celsius. I work a salary position in retail. Same as always. However I did take my dry powder on the side and started scalping a bit. Making a couple bucks here and there. Playing it as safe as possible but slowly trying to get that magical number back. I haven’t bought anymore eth or btc tho. I’ve been waiting to try to see if the market was going to dip again.

  16. Feeling pretty shit but its is what it is I guess.. can only hope some day to get back what i deposited on celsius I mean they can even keep the earns

  17. I was trying to use Celsius to spread my risk, along with saving on several other exchanges. However, Celsius’ app logged me out so often, forcing me to hunt and peck my long secure password on my tiny phone screen, I ended up just not using it. Bad UI design may have saved me a lot.

  18. I lost 47$ of Luna classic on voyager I made the leap several weeks before I’m so sorry about all of y’all’s losses

  19. I’m out about $1k but honestly I wasn’t expecting to sell anytime soon. Just hoping I get some of it back in a year or two.

  20. It sucks but I’m alright. I’m on record saying it was more likely that a hard wallet would get lost on the blockchain, lost in real life, or broken under my supervision than a major exchange going down. I probably made the wrong decision. I hope you’re doing okay!

  21. You will make your money back eventually, I just hope that lessons have been learned about the importance of self-custody.

  22. Why the hell would anyone have their savings on an exchange / CEFI platform? I honestly don’t get it?! The amount of knuckle draggers in the crypto world never ceases to amaze me!

  23. I almost have as much spread over 5 or 6 DeFi platforms as I ever did on those two, so far so good, and I started with about a month before the Luna debacle so when everything kept working that was a huge confidence boost.

  24. I feel like you won’t get answers here from people that got hurt the most. In any case I wish you all the very best.

  25. I’m pretty OK. I only had about 3.5k invested. If I get it back (or some of it) that’s cool. If not that really sucks but I have a steady job and it’s not the end of the world.

  26. Life continúes, so grinding the Fiat machine to one day be able to not have to look at the wallet when buying something.

    Will look at the result but like with exchanges that were eliminated in 2018-2019, nothing new for me.

  27. Putting your savings in crypto doesn’t sound smart to me. It can be very lucrative but it could also go to zero as you found out. Investing in crypto should be with money you can afford to lose.
