“This is an exciting day for Celsius, as we continue to grow with our long-time partners in MVP”, said Nuke Goldstein, Celsius CTO, and Co-Founder. “With this acquisition, we’ll be able to continue scaling our product development and continue to deliver the best products for our growing community.”

The two companies had already been collaborating on the development of the platform over the last 3 years and this acquisition shows the commitment of the company to continue the upgradation and growth of the platform in the coming years as well. It also shows the level of work done by the MVP Workshop team that Celsius has placed so much trust in them now. The details of the acquisition have not been made public yet.

This will help us scale in the long run, and I am very thankful to Celsius for the journey we had this far, and for the one that lies ahead.”
