In light of recent events, Australian cryptocurrency exchange Swyftx has shown 90 of its employees the exit door. It represents a layoff of around 40% of the entire workforce – a significant number. Swyftx CEO Alex Harper said the company is well-positioned to handle the blowout of the FTX storm on the crypto world. He believes the crypto market will continue to decline in 2023. This is the reason behind the massive decrease in the workforce. Layoffs Are Common In Crypto Exchanges Top cryptocurrency exchanges are sizing down their teams to cut costs and prevent wearing out. Other factors have prolonged the current bear market, and this seems to be the only route to stay afloat. Coinbase – US-based crypto giant laid off around 18% of its staff. Huobi followed suit – downsizing its staff by 30%. Popular exchange Gemini laid off 10% of its workforce in June, then recruited over 60 new people in July. Other exchanges that include CryptCorn, BitMEX, and Bybit – reduced their numerical strength. Binance, on the other hand, was one of the few exchanges that expanded operations during the current bearish phase. Who’s Next? Alex Harper, the Swyftx CEO, broke the news of the layoffs in a letter addressed to employees. He referred to the staff as “90 talented friends and employees”. He also distanced Swyftx from any association with the bankrupt exchange FTX. However, he also noted that Swyftx is not immune to the effects of such an event on the crypto market. Harper believes that sizing down a percentage of the workforce will help the organization survive the chilly crypto winter that has claimed many victims.
