Dapper Labs NBA Top Shot sales fell to $2,6 million from $224 million in February 2.
One of the biggest names in the Non Fungible Token (NFT) industry is dramatically reducing headcount as the crypto bear market continues to take its toll on Web3 companies.
Dapper Labs, the company that created the NBA Top Shot on the NFT market, announced today that it will lay off 22% of its employees, citing the reason “macroeconomic environment.”
“These cuts are the last thing we want to do, but are necessary for the long-term health of our business and community. We know web3 and crypto are the future across many industries – with a 1000x potential from here in terms of adoption and impact – but today’s macroeconomic environment we don’t fully control.” Dapper Labs Founder and CEO Roham Gharegozlou write in a blog post .
At the same time, on-chain data shows that market interest in Dapper Labs products is waning.
