Cryptocom is willing to slash 20 employment as industry rout worsens following FTX failure

January 16, 2023: On Friday, Crypto.com stated that it would be reduced about 20% of its workforce as cryptocurrency exchanges encounter industry-wide challenges brought on by the failure of FTX last year.

The Singapore-based firm’s announcement report concerns reserves and solvency all over the sector. Only some days after rival transfers Coinbase Global Inc and Huobi stated their plans to lay off 20% of their staff.

A source told the previous week that Genesis had slashed the jobs, equating to 30% of its workforce.

The discharge of the labours at Crypto.com would be the second in regarding six months after it reduced jobs in July of the previous year to weather the macroeconomic downturn amid rising interest rates.

The latest FTX collapse “hugely damaged emotions in the industry,” Crypto.com Chief Executive Officer Kris Marszalek stated in a statement.

“It’s for this reason, as we keep focusing on prudent financial management, we made the difficult but required decision to make additional declines to position the company for long-term success.”

The decline of Sam Bankman-Fried’s FTX was the biggest in a string of significant crypto-related failures in 2022.

It sparked a cryptocurrency rout and lifting of almost 1 million creditors facing defeats of billions of dollars.
