CZ expounded that the elimination of the company employees is part of a “bottom-out” program, by which Binance eliminates the individuals who are not fit into the company. As per his statement, the “push out” doesn’t indicate the unworthiness of the employees; they would be “high performers”, but might not fit the company’s unique culture.
Countering the rumor, CZ stressed that the company is still functioning smoothly. He quoted:
Binance has stay profitable since month 4 of our inception. From Oct 2017 onwards, through 2 crypto winters, Binance maintained profitability on a daily, weekly and monthly basis.
