Data shows the most liquations occurred on crypto exchange Binance, with over $600 million worth of long positions getting closed out.

Data shows over $210 million worth of Bitcoin shorts were liquidated yesterday—Binance once again led this area with $92 million in short liquidations—as traders rushed to bet against the asset’s prices with high leverage and got caught in the volatility instead.

In the wider cryptocurrency markets, $3.64 billion and $342 million worth of longs and shorts were liquidated respectively.
