The layoffs at a Toronto Stock Exchange-listed company in Australia will affect approximately 150 people.

The company CEO Holger Arians has said:

“Like many others in our industry, we are looking forward to another crypto winter, with trading volumes significantly reduced. We have seen Banxa’s market capitalization almost halve in a matter of days, and the forecast is that these conditions are likely to continue for another 12 months.”
