On-chain data shows that a wallet linked to Celsius repaid the remaining $41.2 million of the loan in DAI, the Maker protocol’s stablecoin. That prompted the Maker protocol to release 21,962 wrapped bitcoin (WBTC), a bitcoin-equivalent token of the Ethereum blockchain, which was pledged as collateral of the loan. That works out to about $448 million, since WBTC is currently trading around $20,400.
