According to a report from The Wall Street Journal, the committee and a court-appointed examiner will have to decide, who will lead the probe into whether Celsius used clients' funds to meet its obligations to others.

The move comes after the creditors committee's lawyer, Greg Pesce, said that " there are flags" that Celsius was a Ponzi scheme. He particularly said:
