Huge fucking happening, get in here. You might have wondered why CLL is still hiring while almost every tech company is in the news for laying off huge percentages of their workforce.
Well, as it turns out, we're about to do layoffs as well. There's been very tense discussions about budgeting and runway for the past few months, especially with how little the staking launch affected the token price. All of these advisors and senior leaders from outside the crypto space haven't come cheap, and our runway is a LOT shorter than it used to be. Apparently Sergey is not happy about the performance of the engineering team and they are going to be hit hardest by the layoffs.
That's right - it won't be the HR roasties that bite the bullet but the engineers actually building stuff. It's a matter of days, not weeks until this gets announced to the public. Supposedly around 15-25% of the engineers are going to get the axe, plus the entire recruitment team. Layoffs will be mainly those hired during the last couple of years whose compensation was artificially inflated by high token prices and general tech euphoria.

It's literal pandemonium at chainlink labs. Patrick Collins has walked because of the absolute state of the project, there are rumours floating that most of their profits made from dumping during the bullrun were lost on Bancor and Celsius and I'm hearing Eric Schmitt is also distancing himself from the project as well.

You should have done the opposite fud.
Sergey started hiring devs because he found out his 15 year plan will take 25 years thanks to feature creep and lazy devs "working" remotely.

If he fires them his 25 year plan will take 50 years.
>>
>>53428305
While true, at least it almost captures the feel of 2019 fud, where everything had a bit of a wink and nod to anons who understood anything about the project. Humor still kind of lacking though. Overall this feels like January 2019, except the jeets and bots haven’t fucked off, but unfortunately I think they’re here to stay because its too profitable to shill here 24/7 for pennies.
>>
Btw here is some hopium if you’re genuinely new and unsure what is going on;
At this stage of the cycle, bitcoin typically chops sideways for a year or so, trending up a small amount. This is the period where the alts from the previous cycle with no future die, as liquidity is pulled out of them both when bitcoin pumps, and when it dumps. Some of that goes to stables now which slightly alters the equation, but the effect on alts is still largely the same.
Right now, many alts are hitting new lows on their bitcoin pairs (value vs bitcoin), and the dead alts could still see this correct another 50 to 90% to the downside. Link remains up around 50% from its local bottom vs bitcoin, and did roughly the same last cycle, where it also bottomed in June of the previous year. If links bear market coin thesis holds true, we’re probably looking at another 2-6 months of chop vs bitcoin, where all alts continue to bleed sats, until link randomly begins trending up against the entire market for 1-2 years. If you genuinely believe link is a shitcoin, destined to only ever have 1 pump and die like the rest of the previous cycle shitcoins, this is crunch time for you, as it should break its local bottom vs bitcoin and continue to dump like all the other shitcoins. Guess we’ll know soon enough.

this is how you know it's over, this bear market is not even comparable to the comfyness of 2018, this cycle effectively destroyed muh "4 year cycles", muh "altseazon", muh "S2F" and every other hopium pilled perma bull narrative
as for LINK, it is effectively a zombie crypto lagging behind the market since August 2020
any anon babbling about "long term hold" and "low time preference adhd impatient baggies" is engaging in blatant astroturfing and revisionist history, the expectation was ETH gains right from the start

>>
>>53430595
Bitcoin cycle has always had diminishing returns with 80% corrections, and technically the losses are diminishing as well, just not at the same rate (unless you believe bear cope about muh 8k).
Besides that, links true bullcase has always been about genuine usecase/value capture that would decouple from bitcoin. That could be beginning this year, it might take until 2030, its a risk/reward play like everything else in this market. I’m not trying to sugarcoat anything, merely presenting a possible bull thesis in a board with nothing but link fud threads and jeet/bot shills. That shouldn’t bother you as the rest of the board would happily agree with you that

Token not needed
>>
>>53430561
couldn't have said it better myself
>>
The friction comes from having have to convert USD or whatever coin or token to LINK. If only LINK were to be accepted users would have to keep LINK in their balance sheet which can be a problem in certain contexts.

Automatic conversion is also a problem because of the gas costs. Let's say you want to use Chainlink to obtain a single random number and you want to pay in USDC. The gad costs for automatic conversion would cost more than generating the actual service.

This leaves us with the Chainlink network accepting payments in other forms than LINK. Then the question is how will they deal with the other tokens. Will they periodically be converted to LINK in batches? Will this be done in the open market or by buying their own reserves and effectively dumping those tokens to the market?

If we're to only think this with cold logic it's difficult to crypto economically to justify using LINK only in the long term. The team still has a huge reserve and is of course interested in that keeping and potentially growing in value. After the reserve is gone the only justification is moral obligations towards token holders

Obviously. here's a thought experiment. Would Patrick have walked if the price of chainlink was $100. He, and others, obviously see no future there.
>>
>>53432512
>It's obvious Patrick wouldn't walk away
He didn't "walk away", he's still retained an association with them as he's now an advisor. This means he will continue to receive compensation from them, probably in the form of Link tokens. Previously, he was on their payroll and I assume he was being paid in USD, which has nothing to do with Link's token value (from Patrick's perspective).
Lastly, just because he changed jobs, it doesn't mean he's sold his entire Link stack you dunce.
>wouldn't walk away from a company that's about to moon
If he already holds 20k tokens (for example), and he changes jobs, he still has 20k tokens even if Link moons, so he missed nothing! Your logic is flawed.

What's happening at chainlink is obvious if you haven't buried your head in the sand like all these other retarded bagholders in chainlink labs /biz/ threads.

Consequently even their most ardent supporters like Patrick, Eric schmitt are distancing themselves from this catastrophe.

What matters is if you have equity in the company or not. It literally doesn't matter if the company moons you're just a wagie on payroll - your pay will stay the same.

This. He's a classy guy and obviously in modern times it would be a colossal mistake to heir grievances on social media where it's permanent. Understandably the massive losers on this website have never had a good career going in their lives so don't comprehend this.

>>53433883
Those have been there for months now so who knows if the site is updated for reality or whether they're actually looking for those positions. Google, Microsoft, Amazon, etc., all just laid off thousands and they actually have revenue. So it'd be a pretty head scratching move to go on a hiring spree right now, regardless of how imminent muh "secret flip switch" is. They need to focus on revenue first, that's just basic business.
>>

What are you doing here? Let me guess, to laugh at chainshitters. That must make you a business owner, or an exec or director, huh?

I work for a company that’s looking to hire 60 people, why is it such a shock companies are growing and looking for talent?

Again are you a business owner? What makes you think the team doesn’t understand this? You have no insider info, you have no idea how this company is ran.

>>
>>53434748
I think that’s what really drives a lot of anons really crazy, that at the end of the day, nobody really knows. The big difference being, in 2017/2018, someone with a 50k stack of link is only risking $10k. In 2023, you’re now risking $325k, and unless you held through 2017, also experienced your first -90% move, outside cz shenanigans in March 2020. The fundamentals haven’t changed, only strengthened since then, but the timeline is still completely up in the air (you can always be priced out via speculators long before adoption) and the amount anons have on the line in usd is roughly 30x greater even if you never took profits.
>>
>>53434920
You first, faggot. Tell me why the rate at which chainlink delivers upsets you so much?
>>
>>53434968
I'm not giving too much information away, don't wanna dox myself, but who on this board isn't upset about the rate of chainlink's progress? Does it satisfy you
>>
>>53434936
To clarify what I mean about priced out via speculators, ultimately the link network has almost no true value right now, and that’s not fud. Its primary usecase is defi, which is in itself mostly just ponzi schemes that provide no value. And yet, purely on speculation, sub 5 dollar link has been taken off the value for 2.5 years. It’s entire possible $5-$9 is this cycles .40-.60 cents, and the next move creates a new floor that wrecks swingies, probably anywhere between $20-$150.

The plan was always to make purchasing of Link on the backend an option. I don't know why this wasn't mentioned in the recent announcement.

>>53436160
Lmaoing at your life. Link token is very much needed for the collateral purposes and for the security of the network like ETH. Proof of stake can not work without staking which shrinks the circulating supply therefore making it possible for Link token to reach unimaginable prices. 1000$ per token is fud. Not even taking into account of the network effect and metcalfe's law.
>>
>>53436300
Checked, I genuinely believe if staking 1.0 releases before the peak of this cycle, we will see 4 digit link. The problem is we don’t know that staking 1.0 will release before this cycle is complete. And that’s not fud, just a fact, staking 1.0 is only feasible economically in a situation where there is massive demand for the link network, this all but requires a usecase like Swift.

CLL inside here. Word around the office is all the researchers and engineers are getting the axe. Yes, even Ari! Sergey is extremely disgruntled with the current pace of R&D, in fact he's quite disgruntled with working in cutting-edge technology as a whole. The only staff that will remain will be the HR squad (he calls them "Sergey's angels" because they're all female), and CLL will soon shut down all nodes, sunset the entire oracle network idea and re-brand as a 100% female human resources-focused company, with future goals to also start livestreaming on Twitch and selling foot pictures on OnlyFans on the roadmap.
