Crypto Winter is used to denoting recession in the industry. The global economic situation post-COVID economic losses and record inflation worldwide have led to mass layoffs in the industry.
According to sources, Huobi co-founder Leon Li is considering selling a significant portion of the company and may lay off as many as 30% of its employees due to a significant drop in revenue. Further, there is news that ailing crypto lender Celsius is laying off a quarter of its employees. Coinbase, the first crypto company to enter the Fortune 500, announced that it was laying off 18% of its workforce—that means shedding about 1,100 full-time roles!
Bit.com is hiring because market downturns are a huge opportunity to scoop amazing talent for a better deal. It is a dream come true for many digital asset companies because many qualified and experienced personnel are joining the talent pool and are ready to be hired.
Several exchanges, for instance, are trying to recruit Coinbase professionals. The brand provides them with a substantial edge and the startups are seizing this opportunity to its fullest extent by recruiting the industry’s top talent. Due to the current market crisis, there will undoubtedly be a surplus of highly trained people recruited at affordable salaries in this workforce environment.
Among the potential advantages of this hiring is the chance to choose candidates from a vast, diversified skill pool who bring a lot of experience and knowledge to the startup. Additionally, startups get experienced personnel from leading rivals who would be tough to acquire otherwise. Lastly, workers were permitted to join without advance notification or waiting, which provides an immediate boost to the execution and development of technology as the onboarding process is cut short.
Many blockchain and crypto enterprises have gone out of business as a result of the global economic crisis. Many startups now have a chance to employ large numbers due to layoffs and leverage the cost reduction at numerous major crypto enterprises. Hopefully, this hiring will lead to the recruitment of the best and brightest, which will help the crypto industry to move forward.
