The pace of crypto market liquidity has not slowed down as the Bitcoin crash has dragged the rest of the market with it. Now that digital assets have crashed below $ 23,000, liquidity has grown rapidly. As of Monday, liquidations had quickly crossed 500 million. Before the end of the day, the number was over িয়ন 1 billion. Traders, both long and short, are suffering greatly as prices fluctuate.
Crypto liquidation is still bad
Crypto market liquidity, although it seems to be declining early on Tuesday, is just as bad. This is because despite falling below $ 1 billion, the price of Bitcoin has not produced any significant support, indicating that more crashes are coming. This means that liquidation is bound to continue.

It comes on top of the December 4 liquidation that saw more than 100,000 merchants leave. However, it was nothing compared to what happened on Sunday. More than $ 500 million has left the market in the last 12 hours alone, a statistic that would be considered too high in a 24-hour period.
Altcoins like SOL, ADA and BNB have also increased their liquidity in the last 24 hours. This speaks to the market-wide crash that rocked the entire market, although digital assets like Cardano have held up nicely in terms of price.
