Bitcoin liquidations surge as market volatility increases; price remains steady at $62,000


Bitcoin Long Liquidations Spike to Over $30 Million in Past 24 Hours amid Price Correction

Bitcoin long liquidations have surged to over $30 million in the last 24 hours as the leading cryptocurrency struggles to maintain its position above $62,000. Analysts have noted that this increase in volatility is in line with historical patterns, with previous halving events leading to price drawdowns of 5% to 15% before a sustained upward trend.

In total, there were $40 million in liquidated bitcoin positions in the past day, with the wider cryptocurrency market experiencing over $145 million in liquidations. The majority of these liquidations were long positions, totaling around $121 million, according to Coinglass data.

At the time of writing, Bitcoin is trading at approximately $62,300, down over 3% in the last 24 hours. Ether, the second-largest cryptocurrency, has also seen a 3% dip to $3,007 in the same period.

Glassnode’s market report highlights that bitcoin halving events are typically followed by a “sell-the-news” event, leading to choppy price action in the short term. The recent halving event saw a price drop of over 11%, with bitcoin trading around $57,000 before recovering to a flat level post-halving.

Bitcoin dominance has slightly increased to 50.9%, while ether dominance has fallen to 15%, according to Coingecko data. The global cryptocurrency market cap has decreased by 2.3% to $2.41 trillion, with the GM 30 Index, representing the top 30 cryptocurrencies, falling 2.98% to 128.48.

As the market continues to navigate the post-halving period, investors and traders are closely monitoring price movements and liquidation trends to gauge the overall sentiment and direction of the cryptocurrency market.
