Crypto exchange company, Lono, What is the announcement? That it will cut its staff by 35% to help see out the so-called crypto winter.

Luno has decided that it needs to focus on its leadership positions in its core markets to build strong foundations so that it is ready if the crypto market starts to recover. While Luno is a crypto company, it’s important to remember that it’s a business like Google or Microsoft, which has to make painful cuts and focus on its profitable activities.
In the announcement, Luno reiterated that today’s news does not affect customer funds or company operations. It said customers’ funds were safe “despite these extremely difficult circumstances”. However, it should be noted that even if Luno lives up to his word, it’s still not a good idea to keep your crypto on an exchange. Better to transfer it to a wallet that you own alone.
