Vienna-based cryptocurrency exchange has fired 730 employees due to unfavorable market conditions, according a Friday announcement.


The trading platform, which is backed by PayPal co-founder Peter Thiel, says that the “difficult decision” was taken so that the company would remain “financial healthy.”

Last August, Bitpanda reached a valuation of more than $4 billion after raising $260 million during its Series C funding round. The funding allowed the company to expand its headcount.
