Earlier today, Gavin Michael, President and CEO of Bakkt, sent out a note to Bakkt employees stating, “We are making a 15% reduction across our exempt employee base, both to right-size our expenses and to position the company for continued strength and stability as we navigate the challenging macroeconomic and crypto environments.”

Michael continued by saying, “As the environment continues to be turbulent across almost every sector of the economy, we are taking this action to be prudent and strategic with our resources.
