Avoid These 3 Crypto Platforms
The market carnage carries on.
And the latest victim is a crypto lender named Celsius.
It halted all withdrawals and transfers on Monday.
And the entire crypto market was its collateral damage.
Bitcoin dropped over 30% this past week. Ethereum fell even further.
In total, cryptos lost over $300 billion in value since last Friday.
The thing is, Celsius was never very transparent about its business.
So its shakeout was inevitable.
But it’s not the only company I want to warn you about today.
There are two other crypto platforms you should avoid.
If you keep your tokens on either of them, I recommend you get out ASAP.

My career on Wall Street started while I was in college. I spent a summer interning for Merrill Lynch in the middle of the ‘90s bull market. I was fascinated with trading, and as a result, after college, I joined Salomon Brothers in the famed mortgage bond trading department. Later, I spent time at Citigroup working with credit derivatives. Eventually, I needed to walk away from the excess of Wall Street. That’s when I joined Banyan Hill in 2017. Now I help readers get ahead of the market and build their retirements.
