- The new Celsius-themed Monopoly board game gets a lot of snark from the crypto community.
- The board game goes for $99 on the marketplace’s website, with some records of successful transactions.
- Some people contend that proceeds from the board game sales should be used to make depositors whole.
The new Monopoly board game “Celsiusopoly,” which features a Celsius theme, is receiving a lot of mockery from the cryptocurrency community. Stephanie Martin, the marketplace’s head of sales and partnerships, launched the board game with a Celsius theme. Martin claimed that “months and months” of hard effort developed and created the Monopoly spin-off.

The board game goes for $99 on the marketplace’s website, with some records of successful transactions. However, due to the board game’s unfortunate timing, the cryptocurrency community has been continuously making fun of the product, with one Twitter user asking:
Who actually thought this would be a good idea… ? You have no respect for all people that lost their life or are in deep financial hardship because of Celsius.
Others contend that proceeds from the board game sales should be used to “make depositors whole.” One user sarcastically questioned whether the “go to jail” card would only apply to Celsius’ CEO.

The game includes a board, box, and play money with a Celsius theme, reward and interest, property, customer care, compliance, loan, and development cards with matching themes. It also comes with an instruction book and a die. While residents of the United States can receive free delivery on the new Monopoly board game, there is no return policy.
The crypto lending platform Celsius filed for bankruptcy on July 13 due to a protracted liquidity crisis and several client withdrawal requests. It also filed an appeal to release $50 million of the $225 million held in the Custody Program and Withhold Accounts to owners, reopening withdrawals for a small number of consumers.
