DeFi Collateral Liquidations Soar As ETH Prices Dip

Over the past 24 hours, the decentralized finance (DeFi) sector witnessed a significant surge in collateral liquidations, totaling more than $5.4 million, with a substantial portion linked to Ethereum (ETH) assets amounting to $4.27 million. 

Concerns loom as projections indicate that if ETH prices drop to $3,008, an additional $24 million worth of collateral could face liquidation. 

Notably, on-chain derivatives exchanges such as GMX, Kwenta, and Polynomial experienced liquidations exceeding $52 million within the same timeframe.

At present, ETH is trading at $3,291, reflecting a notable 7% decline for the day, contributing to the heightened volatility in the market.

Amidst this downturn, data from Lookonchain reveals the actions of three astute ETH traders who capitalized on the market dynamics over the past four days, collectively selling 26,946 ETH, equivalent to $95.7 million, and securing profits totaling $39 million.
