- Bitcoin price has dropped for third consecutive day, triggering a flurry of liquidations.
- The total liquidations in the last 24 hours hit nearly $73 million.
- Altcoins like Bitcoin SV, Bitcoin Cash and Aave are leading the collapse.
Bitcoin (BTC) price shot up nearly 10% between September 27 and October 2 and created a local top at $28,613. This move caused many altcoins to pause their downtrend and trigger a bullish breakout, but the last two days have proven that investors need to be cautious.
Crypto market takes a hit
The sudden spike in Bitcoin (BTC) price was no doubt alluring, but the sudden reversal knocked BTC down by 5.21%. This caught greedy bulls off guard, leading to liquidations worth $73 million in the last 24 hours, according to CoinGlass.
Investors panic-sell altcoins
Bitcoin SV (BSV) price has shed nearly 10% in the last 24 hours, followed by Aave (AAVE) and Bitcoin Cash (BCH), which have lost 7% and 5.60%, respectively.
Out of the $73 million liquidations, only $11.28 million came from Bitcoin longs, while the rest of the liquidations came from altcoins.
With a disappointing start to the first Ethereum futures ETF, it makes sense that ETH liquidations hit a whopping $6.77 million.
