The announcement was first revealed by Coindesk, stating that the firm is removing 39 employees from its team. This being said, the firm now has a total of 155 employees left. According to Maddie Kennedy, director of communications at Chainalysis, the firm seeks to turn towards “profitability” by eliminating members from its almost every department, affecting major on research & development section.
Chainalysis is a five-year-old firm that offers research-oriented insights on various topics related to the crypto-blockchain industry. Unlike other companies that said they’re laying off their staff due to market crash, the reason that Chainalysis’s Kennedy mentioned “go-to-market strategy” as their key focus.
Ahead of firing 20% of its employees, the firm in early November hired three new executives – Chief Revenue Officer, Vice President of Public Sector and Vice President of Americas.

Moreover, the decision followed a slew of interesting updates from Chainalysis – the firm recently unveiled a new crypto data tool catering to institutional investors.
