Chainalysis Reduces 15% of Staff In Layoffs

Blockchain data firm Chainalysis has laid off 15% of its workforce, citing shifting crypto market conditions. This is the second round of layoffs this year, following a smaller reduction in February.

The latest cuts leave Chainalysis with approximately 765 employees. The company said in a statement that it is "committed to growing efficiently and, due to market conditions, believe it necessary to reduce our expenses at this time."


Chainalysis is a leading provider of blockchain data and analysis software to government agencies, financial institutions, and cryptocurrency businesses. The company's products and services are used to track and investigate illicit activity on the blockchain, such as money laundering and terrorist financing.

The layoffs at Chainalysis are part of a broader trend in the crypto sector, which has seen thousands of job losses in 2023 alone. Yes - it's been a rough year for all of us here still hanging on in the industry. The downturn in the crypto industry is due to a number of factors, including the market crashes between 2022 and 2023, rising interest rates, inflation, and, dare we say it, the dying hype.

In addition to the crypto job cuts, there has also been a shift in the tech job market towards AI jobs. Google Trends data shows that the search volume for "AI jobs" has peaked at four times the volume of "crypto jobs" at their respective peaks. This shift is driven by advancements in AI technology and significant investments by tech giants like Google and Microsoft.
