Bitcoin price analysis

Traders are currently experiencing significant losses as Bitcoin (BTC) surpasses the $30,000 price level. Coinglass, a crypto tracking platform, has reported that over $207 million in positions have been liquidated in the past 24 hours.

Majority of these losses, amounting to $173 million, come from short positions, while long investors have incurred over $34 million in losses.

Binance, the world’s largest crypto exchange, saw the highest amount of liquidations at $41.1 million followed by OKX which saw just over $11 million. Data shows that the single largest liquidation occurred over crypto exchange BitMEX for $9.3 million.

According to Alex Krüger, a well-known economist, BlackRock’s recent attempt to establish a BTC exchange-traded fund (ETF) through the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) is likely to be one of the simplest ways to invest in Bitcoin this year.

Kruger also expressed a strong belief that the ETF will be authorized by the regulatory agency in the coming year, despite previous rejections of similar proposals.
