Ethereum Records $102mln in Liquidations
Ethereum has a significant lead over other cryptocurrencies in terms of the volume of tokens that have been liquidated during the previous twenty-four hours, with 102 million tokens having been sold.
According to the data provided by CoinGlass, throughout the course of the previous day, a total of $59.96 million worth of short positions and $42.47 million worth of long positions were closed out. Toward the end of Sunday’s trading session, the value of the asset hit an intraday high of $1,654 before tumbling to a low of $1,558 within the space of two hours.
Ninja, a trader in cryptocurrencies, is of the opinion that the sudden drop in price was caused by a large-scale sale transaction that took place on the FTX bitcoin market.
Another cryptocurrency specialist stated on Twitter that it most likely was a bull trap. “Certainly, it looks to have been a bull trap.”
In the meanwhile, Bitcoin recorded a total daily volume of just $22,94 million in liquidations. As the value of the asset swung between $22,242 and $22,970 during the course of the preceding 24 hours, both long positions ($11.39 million) and short positions ($11.55 million) had their holdings reduced.
