In an advanced report dated December 18, the prominent Bitcoin miner in Canada Hut 8 signed an interim agreement with Celsius creditors to establish a new mining site in Cedarvale, Texas. The bankrupt crypto lender Celsius Network has sought to attain its restructuring plans for the past few months. 

Last month, a court in the US approved Celsius’s restructuring plan that will allow the now-defunct crypto lender to recover the customers’ funds by establishing a new entity. Based on the restructuring plan, the Celsius team envisioned that from January 2024, the affected customers would receive their funds.
