‘Go to jail:’ Community roasts Celsius-themed Monopoly board game

The crypto community is having a field day mocking a new Celsius-themed Monopoly board game named “Celsiusopoly,” which has emerged on a United States-based online e-commerce marketplace. 

The announcement of the Celsius-themed board game came from the marketplace’s head of sales and partnerships Stephanie Martin, who said the planning and production of the Monopoly spin-off came on the back of “months and months” of hard work.

According to the marketplace’s website, the Celsiusopoly board game is selling for $99.00, and some sales have reportedly already been made.

However, the ill-timed release of the board game has seen the crypto community relentlessly mocking the crypto-lender themed product, with one Twitter user questioning:

“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 cause of Celsius.”

Meanwhile, others argue that sales of the board game should be used to “make depositors whole,” and another user jokingly questioned whether the “go to jail” card will only apply to Celsius’ CEO. 

The Celsiusopoly board game has the Celsius logo centered in the middle of the board, with a “Do good. Then do well” slogan beneath, which appears to be in reference to a Jan. 2021 tweet from Alex Mashinsky, the founder and CEO of the Celsius network.

In addition to the Celsius-themed game board, box, and play money, the game also features themed Rewards & Interest, Property, Customer Care, Compliance, Loan, and Development Cards, along with an instruction manual and a die. 

Images of the purported board game do not appear to include any branding from Hasbro Gaming, suggesting the game may not be an official Monopoly board game.

Celsius is a cryptocurrency lending platform that officially went into bankruptcy on Jul. 13, following a long-term liquidity crisis and series of halting withdrawals from customers.

The cryptocurrency lending platform recently filed to reopen withdrawals for a minority of customers, with a motion for $50 million worth of the total $225 million held in the Custody Program and Withhold Accounts set to be released to owners.

While shipping of the new Celsius-themed Monopoly board game is free for U.S.-based residents, there aren’t any returns available for unsatisfied customers.

A Cointelegraph journalist’s attempt at purchasing the board game on the marketplace appears to go through, suggesting this could be a real product that people can purchase.
