Traders liquidate almost $700m amid Bitcoin’s precipitous decline

Positions were mainly liquidated on crypto exchanges Binance, OKX, and Bybit. The most significant liquidation order was the BTC-USDT position on the Huobi cryptocurrency exchange for $14.26 million.

On Jan. 3, 2024, the rate of the first cryptocurrency showed a sudden drop, immediately falling to the level of $41,500. At the time of publication, BTC is trying to gain a foothold above $42,800. The collapse of the bitcoin rate also hurt the alt-coin sector. Over the past 24 hours, the value of most assets fell by an average of 13%.

The collapse came shortly after Matrixport analysts reported that the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) will not approve spot Bitcoin ETFs this month. Experts suggested that the agency will begin registering investment crypto-funds only after the applicant companies fulfill all the agency requirements. Matrixport representatives believe this could happen in Q2 of 2024.
