Celsius Price: Is It Too Late to Sell as CEL Continues to Fall?
CEL, the native coin of the embattled Celsius banking and financial platform, continues to drop amid unending challenges. According to reports, hackers flooded the Celsius community, sending phishing emails to participants in anticipation of a proposed reimbursement.

As of January 2023, CEL’s price had dropped to $0.6 from an all-time high (ATH) of $8.02.
