by in Cryptocurrency News


Many companies in the crypto sphere are forced to lay off employees to reduce operating costs.

Moreover, some teams have cut staff by more than 50% after the industry was in a state of crisis caused by the outflow of capital from digital currencies.

Now this list has been added to the Genesis crypto-lending platform. Its CEO Michael Moreau resigned during a personnel reshuffle. In addition, the company has reduced the number of employees by 20% already this week.

Top management decided to revise the business model and work only with those projects and areas that are still generating income.
