On BitMEX alone, this move liquidated $125 million worth of Bitcoin longs that were presumably overleveraged.
According to a trader’s data, over $1 billion worth of positions across the market were liquidated over the past hour alone. Much of the liquidations were centralized in Bitcoin and Ethereum, which seemingly reacted the fastest to the move.
Ethereum dropped as low as $302 on Binance’s futures platform and almost as close to that level on other margin platforms.
