The tech firm is carrying out this exercise for the second since last year after firing 250 people in June 2022.


“We grew ambitiously at the start of 2022, building on our incredible momentum and aligning with the trajectory of the broader industry. That trajectory changed rapidly with a confluence of negative economic developments,” Kris Marszalek, the company’s co-founder and CEO, said in a blog post.

Marszalek adds that he remains confident in the business, and assures users and investors that the future is still bright for crypto. However, he recognises that doubt may begin to creep into minds and industry movers need to do a lot of work to keep the confidence.


Like, fellow crypto exchange company Coinbase also announce laying off 20% of its staff at the beginning of this week and Kraken fired 30% of its employees in November 2022.

“The reductions we made last July positioned us to weather the macro economic downturn, but it did not account for the recent collapse of FTX, which significantly damaged trust in the industry. It’s for this reason, as we continue to focus on prudent financial management, we made the difficult but necessary decision to make additional reductions in order to position the company for long-term success,” CEO further added.
