  • It’s also evident that the volatility has picked up tremendously, as the subsequent candle also had an amplitude of about 20%.
  • This resulted in a considerable number of liquidations for that particular cryptocurrency. In less than an hour, almost $7 million in leveraged positions were wiped off the market.
  •  It’s also worth noting that the move comes shortly after LUNC – the cryptocurrency that powers the classic version of Terra’s ecosystem – skyrocketed by about 100% weekly.
  • The latter happened because major exchanges such as KuCoin and GateIO extended support for the protocol’s tax-burn mechanism.
