It remains unknown how many employees are affected by the latest closure in Amsterdam, which Bitmain has officially confirmed.
Bitmain, which in November announced the first in what has become a series of cost-saving measures by shutting down a blockchain development center in Israel, said the move was part of its longer-term roadmap.
“As we build a long-term, sustainable and scalable business, we are making adjustments to our staff and operations. This includes the decision to close our Amsterdam and Israel offices,” the statement reads, adding:
“We are really focusing on things that are core to our mission and not things that are auxiliary.”
Bitmain has not responded to Cointelegraph’s request for further comment by press time.
As Cointelegraph reported, the decision to leave Israel accompanied rumors Bitmain was planning much larger staff layoffs which could amount to over half its 2,500-strong workforce.
A reported senior executive reshuffle is meanwhile seeing co-CEOs Jihan Wu and Micree Zhan Ketuan move to co-chair positions, with director of product engineering Wang Haichao purportedly set to fill the vacancy.
