(Bloomberg) — Cryptocurrency conglomerate Digital Currency Group closed its wealth-management division, the latest sign of trouble amid a deep and prolonged slump in the crypto industry.
The Stamford, Connecticut-based firm, which controls asset manager Grayscale Investments and brokerage Genesis, among others, is dealing with numerous issues: it had dismissed 10% of its staff toward the end of last year. Genesis also eliminated more than 60 positions in what amounted to 30% of its workforce.
As part of the latest changes, DCG shuttered its wealth-management division called HQ, a company spokesperson confirmed. The closure was first reported by The Information.
“Due the state of the broader economic environment and prolonged crypto winter presenting significant headwinds to the industry, we made the decision to wind down HQ, effective January 31,” a DCG spokesperson said in an emailed statement. “We’re proud of the work that the team has done and look forward to potentially revisiting the project in the future.”
