Over the last few weeks, measures to prevent coronavirus and market downturns have led to a massive number of layoffs and difficulties for the company.

“We believe this time is the best time to recruit exceptional talent. Throughout this quarter, we will continue to recruit new staff and encourage people to apply for Binance. “
