Crypto exchange Binance is in the news today as it reveals plans to add 2,000 positions to the company despite the crypto crash.

Changpeng Zhao, CEO of Binance, announced the news in a tweet today. He said it wasn’t easy turning down Super Bowl ads, stadium naming rights and large sponsor deals earlier this year.

All of that is in reference to other crypto exchanges that did take such deals. Now, many of them are struggling as the crypto crash takes place. This has resulted in several laying off employees in preparation for a possible crypto winter.

Let’s go over some of those layoffs below!

  • Coinbase (NASDAQ:COIN) is laying off 18% of its workforce.
  • BlockFi is firing 20% of its employees.
  • Crypto.com is reducing its workforce by 5%.
  • Gemini  is cutting its headcount by 10%.

It’s also worth mentioning that Binance (BNB-USD) has its own crypto that’s been suffering through the crash this week. The price of the crypto started falling alongside others on Saturday. As of this writing, BNB is down 6.3% over the prior 24-hour period.
