Caught in the crossfire: how long and short liquidations shape the crypto market’s future

quick take

  • Liquidation was one of the main points of discussion in the 2021 and 2022 cycles.
  • Leverage, whale activity, and market sentiment are a lot of the reason for the higher number of liquidations in 2021 compared to 2022.
  • With a bull market in 2021, market sentiment was positive and prices continued to rise. Long-term liquidations on small pullbacks have therefore disappeared.
  • Entering the bear market of 2022, prices continued to fall 75% from all-time highs, with investors looking to buy all the time. However, they continued to get burned.
  • As we enter 2023, we are seeing a mix of short and long liquidations. The Shorts were on the wrong side, taking pole position in 2023.
