I can't see how secrecy could have been touted here. Celsius was subject to KYC (Know Your Customer) laws, so they had to vet all their customers. They wanted the names to be redacted from the documents that they filed with the court but were refused. The doxing is therefore the fault of KYC laws and the court.

The crypto crowd says this is a problem with CeFi (centralized finance), the model under which Celsius operated. DeFi (decentralized finance) is supposed to be immune to this. But even the names behind its anonymous "wallet" addresses can slowly be revealed by getting someone to disclose who they transacted with. This allows a growing network of transactions to be traced whenever another user in the skein can be coaxed into cooperating with investigators.
