Colin Wu Reports Layoffs Are Coming to Huobi and the Alleged Sale of 50% Stake

On June 28, 2022, Colin Wu, the local cryptocurrency and blockchain journalist from China, erklärt that Huobi “will start layoffs, which may exceed 30%.”

Layoffs have been plaguing the crypto industry as companies like Blockfi, Coinbase, Gemini, Bitso, Buenbit, Rain Financial, Bybit, and 2TM have let employees go. The crypto winter and volatile markets have been the main reason why executives have decided to cut workforce numbers.

Wu detailed that “the main reason” why Huobi is laying off staff is because of “the sharp drop in revenue after the removal of all Chinese users.” However, there has been no official announcement about such actions stemming from official Huobi sources.

A company spokesperson did explain to Coindesk reporter Oliver Knight on June 28, that Huobi is in the process of reviewing the firm’s policies. “Due to the current market environment, Huobi Global is in the process of reviewing both its hiring policies and its current manpower, with the goal of re-aligning them to its operational needs. Further to such review, layoffs are a possibility,” the Huobi representative said.
