Bitcoin Crash To $61,000 Drives 24-Hour Crypto Liquidations Toward $300 Million

Share This Post

Early on Monday morning, the Bitcoin price crashed another 5% to drop to the $61,000 level. This drop, which was very sudden, has taken investors by surprise, triggering a massive wave of liquidations. As the volume continues to rise, the crypto liquidation figures have barreled toward $300 million in just 24 hours alone.

91,000 Crypto Traders Lose $282 Million Amid Bitcoin Crash

Data from Coinglass has shown that tens of thousands of crypto traders have lost their leverage positions in the last day, leading to hundreds of millions of dollars in liquidations. This comes with the decline in the crypto market, spurred on by the Bitcoin crash.

So far, the number of traders who have lost their positions has crossed 91,000, and a little over $282 million has been lost since then. With the Bitcoin and crypto market crash, the majority of these liquidations have come from long traders, with an overwhelming 91.59%.

As expected, Bitcoin has seen the largest liquidation volumes with $103 million. Ethereum follows in second place with $64 million, while Solana comes in third place with $13 million. Liquidations from others have also crossed $38 million during this time.

Binance accounts for around 35% of total liquidations with $102.9 million, while the OKX exchange has recorded $82 million in liquidations. Huobi, Bybit, and Bitmex are in 3rd, 4th, and 5th positions with $47.72 million, $21.33 million, and $15.15 million, respectively. While the largest single liquidation order took place on the Bitmex exchange, where a trader lost $10 million on the XBTUSDT pair.

At the time of writing, the majority of the liquidation had taken place in the last 12 hours alone, making up $230 million out of the recorded $282 million. Meanwhile, in the last hour, the liquidation volumes have crossed $102.5 million.

Despite the notable liquidation volumes, the last 24 hours are still not the worst day for the month of June. Since June has been riddled with crashes, there have been notable liquidation trends for the month. For example, on June 7, liquidation volumes reached $360 million when the Bitcoin price crashed from $71,000 to $68,000.

Then again, on June 18, 24-hour liquidation volumes crossed $300 million when the Bitcoin price fell from $67,000 to $64,000. If the Bitcoin price continues to fall, then these liquidation volumes could continue to climb quickly and reaching $300 million could only be a matter of when and not if.

The Bitcoin price is currently struggling to hold $61,000, with an approximately 5% decline in the last 24 hours. If bulls fail to hold this support level, the possibility of the price falling to the $50,000 territory becomes much higher.
