Employee Mass Layoff Accusation
There have recently been claims that cryptocurrency exchange Crypto.com has laid off over 2,000 staff. The crypto exchange, however, has vehemently denied these accusations, stating that these assumptions were “incorrect.” According to sources, a representative stated.
The corporation, however, did not say how many employees were affected. Furthermore, the claimed sum is much larger than the previously disclosed personnel reduction by the company’s CEO, Kris Marszalek. Furthermore, following Marszalek’s revelation, the firm has undertaken “selective employee cutbacks,” according to a Crypto.com spokeswoman.
Furthermore, nearly 60% of employees in “non-corporate, back office, and support services” were laid off. This was according to the spokeswoman for the exchange, who did not give any other information.
