The ongoing crypto market downturn has apparently forced the crypto exchange Coinbase to halt plans to triple its headcount this year. The company said on Tuesday (May 17, 2022) that it was “slowing down recruitment to ensure we are in the best position to succeed in the current market downturn and beyond.”
In an official blog post, Coinbase said, “This year, we plan to triple the size of the company. Given the current market conditions, we think it’s prudent to slowly assign and re-evaluate our headcount needs against our top-priority business goals.”
Coinbase, one of the largest crypto exchanges in the world, said the current recession would force it to tighten its priorities.
