Amber Group, a cryptocurrency trading platform that was seeking to raise funding as recently as May, has cut as much as 10% of its staff this year due to an overall market downturn.

The Singapore-based company’s co-founder, Tiantian Kullander, said the company adjusts global headcount every quarter, and estimated that this year’s total net headcount change has been a 5% to 10% reduction in jobs.
