A spokesperson from Crypto Jobs List, commented on the findings:
“Now is the perfect time for anyone with a genuine interest in working in crypto to apply for a job. The market downturn has meant that individuals who don’t plan to stick around for long are deterred, and only serious candidates that are interested in a long-term career are left to apply, and hiring managers recognise this. Kraken and Binance have shown that they plan to stay around for a long time by looking to grow their headcount during a bear market.”
