Changpeng Zhao, the founder and CEO of Binance, warned employees of the forthcoming challenges. Is he planning layoffs?

According to a Bloomberg report, Changpeng Zhao sent a memo to Binance employees assuring them that Binance would survive any crypto winters. The CEO expects tough times in upcoming months due to the damaged investor sentiments after the collapse of the FTX exchange.

Changpeng Zhao believes that the crypto industry is experiencing a “historic moment,” but he assures that Binance has strong financial positions to survive.

“While we expect the next several months to be bumpy, we will get past this challenging period – and we’ll be stronger for having been through it,” the memo reads.

Is Binance Planning to Survive Crypto Winter With Layoffs?

Changpeng Zhao further mentions that the FTX collapse has led to “a lot of extra scrutiny and tough questions.” regarding his firm. The rest of the details of the letter remain unknown. It is also unclear whether Binance plans to start laying off staff to survive the “crypto winter.”

So far, Binance has not officially announced any structural changes in the company’s business, although competitors have already carried out several rounds of layoffs. For example, platforms like Coinbase, Kraken, and Bybit have already fired several hundred employees to survive the crisis.

According to a Twitter user, seven top managers have left Binance over the past couple of months, but the reason for their departure is unknown. Officially, Binance has not yet commented on the rumors about the departure of managers.

Notably, Changpeng Zhao previously warned with a tweet that users should avoid platforms that carry out layoffs. The founder of Binance did not give any reason for his call and later deleted his tweet altogether.
