What other announcements have been made? According to Zhao, Binance intends to make the most of crypto winter. He also noted that the exchange has a solid reserve to survive this period. In addition, this is not the first time the company has experienced a bear market since its founding in 2017.

What is crypto winter? This term implies a prolonged bear market when the value of major crypto assets falls for an extended time. The first crypto winter was in 2014-2015 and the second in 2017-2018.

Earlier, the Gemini crypto exchange announced a 10 % staff reduction. This is the first ever massive job cut since the platform was founded in 2014. Gemini founders acknowledged that as the industry is going through a crypto winter, the company is “in the contraction phase.” In addition, geopolitical instability and the macroeconomic situation were the reasons for staff optimization.
