Protocol Lab’s layoffs are a hot topic on Monday as the Filecoin (FIL-USD) creator reveals plans to cut jobs.

The Protocol Labs layoffs have the crypto company cutting its workforce by 21%, which is 89 jobs. This comes as the company deals with a crypto winter following the fallout and drama caused by the FTX crash late last year.

According to a blog post, the Protocol Labs’ layoffs affect employees across its PLGO teams. That includes those working at PL Corp, PL Member Services, Network Goods, PL Outercore, and PL Starfleet.

Juan Benet, CEO of Protocol Labs, said the following in a blog post:

“As you know, this has been an extremely challenging economic downturn, world-wide and especially in crypto. High inflation leading to high interest rates, low investment, and tougher markets have rocked companies and industries globally. The macro winter worsened crypto winter, making it more extreme and potentially longer than our industry expected.”
