As Coincu reported, in order to survive the industry downturn, San Francisco-based Coinbase Global is laying off around 950 people, according to Chief Executive Officer Brian Armstrong. He also said that a number of projects with a reduced chance of success would be abandoned.

Coinbase said in June that it would fire 18% of its staff or about 1,200 people. In November, 60 further posts were cut.

According to just announced news, Nikhil Wahi, the brother of Ishan Wahi, a former product manager at Coinbase, entered a guilty plea and was guilty to 10 months in prison for using his family ties to engage in insider trading of cryptocurrency tokens.
