Despite the most recent but yet mild recovery of the cryptocurrency market, most blockchain-related companies are trying to cut existing costs since almost every entity that somehow worked or held cryptocurrencies could not meet the expectations of investors and experts.

For example, Michael Saylor's MicroStrategy reported a 2.1% revenue decrease since 2021, with $125.4 million. Analysts' expectations were at $127.25 million. The drop in revenue also includes losses from the company's cryptocurrency holdings that did not show any positivity in 2022.
