Despite the massive crash of the cryptocurrency market since the beginning of the year, some crypto-related companies have continued to embark on hiring sprees to strengthen their operations. 

While most cryptocurrency companies are reducing their staff strength to cope with declining market conditions, popular trading platform Binance and fintech company Ripple has announced new job openings.

According to an announcement by Changpeng “CZ” Zhao, the CEO and founder of the world’s largest exchange by trade volume, the trading platform will be recruiting 2,000 staff, to join the company to continue building opportunities.

CZ noted that the move was made possible following Binance’s decision to decline the acquisition of Super Bowl ads, stadium naming rights, and other sponsorship deals.

CZ comment was also hit on Coinbase and Cryptocom which were aggressively busy in advertising while Binance saved its capital for tough times.

“It was not easy saying no to Super bowl ads, stadium naming rights, and large sponsor deals a few months ago, but we did. Today, we are hiring for 2000 open positions for #Binance,” CZ said.

Ripple Joins Binance Recruitment Spree 

Similarly, Ripple also followed in Binance’s footsteps a few hours later, announcing that it will be recruiting hundreds of talent across the globe.

Meanwhile, Garlinghouse commented on Ripple’s decision to recruit more talent to continue its expansion and growth mission, saying:

“Ripple is hiring for hundreds of roles around the globe – both in person and remote. Fair warning – we have a “no assholes” policy here. If that’s the kind of culture you’re looking for, apply here /”

Most Crypto Companies Do Otherwise

Gemini recently announced the layoff of 10% of its employees to cope with declining market conditions. Similarly, cryptocurrency exchanges Coinbase and have also announced layoffs for some of their employees.

For Coinbase, the San Francisco-based exchange slashed nearly one-fifth of its staff strength, while laid off 5% of its workforce, which represents about 260 employees. said it would lay off about 260 staff members, about five percent of its total workforce.
