This morning the cryptocurrency market underwent a large sell-off. Let's asses the damage.
Aggregated open interest, the value of total futures contracts outstanding, fell from 181k BTC to lows of 154K BTC, wiping a total of $1,139,400,000 or 15% of aggregated futures open interest within a 2 hour period.
A cumulative sum of $613.07m was liquidated in the prior 24h period, 79% of this total having been liquidated in the last hour.
Notably this is the largest total market liquidation event since the uptrend in August began and the largest altcoin liquidation event in two years.
Below contains a list of the top gainers following the sell-off for the prior 1h period. Notably there is a strong bounce back amongst ETH Beta with ARB, OP and LDO all contained within the list. Frequently, top gainers post sell-off continue to outperform so it is worthy to keep an eye on these assets.

Speculation surrounding the sell-off is stemming from an article posted by Matrixport insinuating that there would be a rejection of the ETF. This insinuation is unsubstantiated with the present level of information that we have.
