Daniel Leon co-founder of Celsius Network resigns from his position too

Daniel Leon, co-founder and chief strategy officer of Celsius, has left the company just a week after CEO Alex Mashinsky announced his departure.

“We confirm that Daniel Leon has resigned from his position at Celsius and is no longer with the organization,” a Celsius representative confirmed in an email to MarketWatch.

It is also worth remembering that Alex Mashinsky withdrew $10 million a few weeks before the platform froze its transactions and went bankrupt. Indeed, on June 12, the crypto-bank had frozen all transactions, a few weeks before declaring bankruptcy, with a hole of $1.2 billion in its balance sheet.

Leon’s resignation was announced Tuesday in an internal memo, which was reported by CNBC. The memo said he will be replaced by Lior Koren, previously the company’s global tax director, who will work from Israel for the Hoboken, New Jersey-based company.

Daniel Leon‘s resignation echoes recent departures within major players in the crypto sector.

Not long ago, it was Jesse Powel, CEO of Kraken, who also announced his resignation. Thus, Brett Harrison also just announced his resignation from his position as president of the crypto-exchange FTX US.
