American cryptocurrency company Coinbase has reduced staff. The firm will leave some members of the customer support services Department legal and compliance Department to identify fraud, according to Yahoo Finance.

So, Coinbase confirmed the information but declined to name the exact number of laid-off [according to sources, 15 people]. Nevertheless, we know that most of them worked remotely. Now the company intends to hire employees solely for office work, because, in the opinion of management, it will increase the efficiency of the mentioned departments.

In Coinbase added that the average waiting time of user response to e-mail is four hours, and 90% of the requests successfully closed within 48 hours.

We will remind, earlier leading CNBC Ran Neuner stated that Coinbase intends to enter the IPO.
