“Today's actions were surgical. We are just making sure we are not wasting a dollar,” Coinbase's Chief Financial Officer, Alesia Haas, told Bloomberg TV. “If we see that there is going to be further depressed revenue, and if we believe this is going to impact beyond the scenarios we have already planned for, we will have to take further cost saving action.”

Crypto companies have been forced to downsize amid a rout that's erased more than $2 trillion in market value.

In June, Coinbase announced it would lay off 18% of its workforce, the equivalent of roughly 1,200 employees. Billionaire Michael Novogratz's Galaxy Digital Holdings Ltd. said this month that it is exploring eliminating as much as 20% of its workforce. Also over the past month, Mythical Games, a blockchain video game company once valued at $1.25 billion, laid off 10% of its staff.

Elliott Suthers, director of Corporate & Global Communications wrote that Coinbase will offer “generous severance packages for those affected.”

Shares of Coinbase rose about 11% on Thursday, helping to temper a slide of more than 20% earlier this week. The stock is down 80% this year.
