ConsenSys CEO says layoffs help to retain goals amid the macroeconomic situation 7

ConsenSys founder noted that the decision to reduce the workforce was taken to maintain the financial position of the company amid critical “macroeconomic and geopolitical” situations. 

Joseph said:

“There are some pretty concerning things happening still in supply chains, in materials and chips, in VC financing, potentially there’s a lot of dry powder out there, but there’s gonna be a lot of companies going into the market at the same time. And VCS are not kind and generous. They’re going to withhold until some sort of shakeout happens in the tech space I believe.”

ConsenSys & controversy

The popular decentralised Ethereum wallet MetaMask is a product service of the ConsenSys company. In Q3 2022, ConsenSys released an update to change the data privacy policy of MetaMask users. 

Through the new privacy policy announcement, ConsenSys confirmed that it will store data of users like IP address, corresponding crypto address, name, etc. 

After the new privacy policy, many MetaMask users jumped against ConsenSys and said that the company now wants to make money with user’s data.

Later ConsenSys founder responded to this controversy officially and confirmed that the company will not share user data with any party & soon the company will change its privacy policy & only store data for up to 10 days only to provide better user experience.
