Crypto.com lays over 100 employees even after reducing 5% of the work force
Crypto.com, a popular cryptocurrency exchange, in June, announced that it was going to lay off a minimum of 5% of its work force, as a method to reduce the costs of the business, to survive the imploding market. The total employees that were laid off in June was around 260. Now, the news is going round that, Crypto.com went on to lay off an additional 100 employees, again to cut the costs of the business to stay viable in the market situation.
The news is spreading like a wild fire, because, already the crypto exchange had laid off 260 people. Cutting more slack would only mean that the company is in deeper slack than everyone anticipated and the news is amusing to everyone concerned with the market.
Market Crash’s impact on Crypto.com

Crypto.com’s CEO, Kris Marszalek, announced that the company would lay off 5% of its work force to control the costs. Crypto.com was not the only one to follow this process. Many other crypto exchanges such as BlockFI, Gemini also followed the same strategy to control the costs of their business.
