In the past day, the cryptocurrency market has sold off more than $345 million worth of trading positions. Surprisingly, “other” cryptocurrencies—those with market caps below the top 50—accounted for $100 million of the total.

On June 8, Finbold obtained this data from CoinGlass after a significant crash that traders surmise occurred as a result of macroeconomic data.

With $103.82 million in liquidations, long-position traders exposed to “other” cryptocurrencies suffered the great majority of losses. Just $6.09 million was lost by short sellers of these low-cap coins, for a total of $109.91 million in capital lost in a single day.

With $309.53 million of the $345.12 million in digital asset liquidations, bulls were largely penalized. Ethereum (ETH) saw $38.75 million in liquidations, primarily from long positions, compared to $43.21 million for Bitcoin (BTC).

Altcoin and meme coin traders suffered heavy losses amid liquidations.

In this regard, since June 7, the capitalization of TradingView’s crypto market cap index (TOTAL3), which comprises all cryptocurrencies with the exception of BTC and ETH, has decreased by more than $60 billion. According to the index, the $666 billion market is presently being tested for resilience ahead of a potential altseason.

On a daily chart, TOTAL3’s 30-day exponential moving average (30-EMA) is marginally below. Therefore, rising from this support level would indicate bullish momentum for cryptocurrencies, probably sparking a surge. According to Finbold, analysts have discovered a “once in a few years golden opportunity” with these alternative cryptocurrencies.

It’s interesting to note that in the midst of the market’s growing meme coin frenzy, the current crash may aid in sifting out promising projects. For instance, an investment in meme coins results in $8 million in unrealized losses for a crypto influencer.

Because meme coins are speculative, traders should not undervalue the significant risks associated with them. These cryptocurrencies frequently have no inherent value, and social media hype is what drives their prices most of the time.

Meme coin investors and traders are effectively gambling in the hopes of selling their holdings to others for a higher price. This kind of thinking is consistent with the “Greater Fool Theory,” which holds that assets with high valuations can be profitable. This theory does, however, also highlight the inherent risk because there may eventually run out of buyers willing to enter the market. CRYPTOCASTER® - DECENTRALIZED FREEDOM!


We hope you appreciated this article. Before you move on, I was hoping you would consider taking the step of supporting CryptoCaster’s journalism. 

From  Elon Musk, Larry Fink(BlackRock) to Jamie Dimon(JP Morgan Chase) a number of billionaire owners have a powerful hold on so much of the hidden agendas’ which eludes the public concerning the paradigm shift juxtaposed by cryptocurrency and web3 emerging technologies. CryptoCaster is different. We have no billionaire owner or shareholders to consider. Our journalistic efforts are produced to serve the public interest in crypto development and institutional disruptions – not profit motives.

And we avoid the trap that befalls much U.S. and global media – the tendency, born of a desire to please all sides, to engage in false equivalence in the name of neutrality and retail consumer protection. While fairness and transparency dictates everything we do, we know there is a right and a wrong position in the fight against fiat global banking interest and monetary reconstruction precipitated by the emerging crypto ecology.

When we report on issues like the FTX, Binance and Ripple crisis, we’re not afraid to name who or what is uncovered. And as a crypto sentinel, we’re able to provide a fresh, outsider perspective on the global monetary disruption – one so often missing from the insular American and European media bubble. 

Around the world, readers can access the CryptoCaster’s paywall-free journalism because of our unique reader-supported model. That’s because of people like you. Our readers keep us independent, beholden to no outside influence and accessible to everyone – whether they can afford to pay for news and information, or not.

We thankyou for the on-going support our readers have bestowed monetarily. If you have not considered supporting CryptoCaster, if you can, please consider supporting us just once from $1 or more of Bitcoin (satoshi) or Eth, and better yet, support us every month with a little more.
