Chinese mining giant Bitmain Technology and cryptocurrency exchange operator Huobi Group have announced plans to lay off employees but for various reasons, per reports about the South China Morning Post (SCMP). Bitmain showed its goal in a statement offered by the SCMP, predicting that the layoffs a”minor alteration” because it restructures to construct a sustainable company after the recession in the marketplace.

The company added:

A component of this is having to focus on matters which are core to this assignment rather than matters which are auxiliary. As we proceed into the new calendar year, we’ll continue to double back on selecting the best talent from a wide variety of backgrounds.

Even though the rumors making the rounds in Chinese press says roughly half of Bitmain’s employees may find themselves jobless at the conclusion of the present restructuring, a Bitmain spokesman allegedly denied the proposals but refused to discuss the precise amount of workers that may be axed. Another anonymous worker, mentioned by SCMP, asserts that the lien would cover all Bitmain’s branches but he was not sure of the precise number of workers to be terminated.

In like fashion, Chinese firm Huobi Group, that SCMP notes have over 1,000 workers, will be linking Bitmain about the chopping block since it attempts to reorganize its construction for the new year by cutting redundant workers. Contrary to Bitmain, Beijing-based Huobi Group has been quick to point out that it’ll continue to expand its group “because of its core companies and emerging markets.”

The sudden market crash has made it hard for many blockchain firms to be more sustainable, resulting in cutbacks and layoffs out of companies.

Before this month, since CCN reported, Ethereum manufacturing studio ConsenSys went through a type of restructuring since the company needed to axe60percent of its workforce in an attempt to enhance its business amid the bearish market.

“We have to keep, and sometimes recover, the slender and gritty startup mindset which made us that we are. We find ourselves inhabiting an extremely competitive world…We have to recognize what got us here would likely not catch us there, where’there’ is,” ConsenSys CEO Joseph Lubin wrote in a letter to his workers.

Blockchain societal platform Steemit wasn’t spared either. Citing the collapse of this cryptocurrency marketplace, Ned Scott, CEO of Steemit stated the startup was shooting 70 percent of its own group imagining that it was getting hard to enhance the blockchain together with the”rising costs of running complete Steem nodes” and the lower “fiat yields” in their “automatic selling of STEEM.”
