Bitcoin (CRYPTO: BTC) surged by 7.8% during Asian hours on Wednesday to $41,632.

What Happened: The market-leading cryptocurrency added nearly $3,000 to its price as it surged above the $41,000 mark. The coin saw a 10% increase in trading volume which exceeded $31.6 billion at press time.

The sudden spike in the digital asset’s price caused over $32 million worth of liquidations in one hour alone. Of these liquidations, $22 million were Bitcoin liquidations alone.

According to data from CoinGlass, more than 94% of liquidations across all major crypto exchanges occurred for traders in short positions.

Ethereum (CRYPTO: ETH), followed Bitcoin’s momentum, gaining 6.5% and trading above $2,700. Dogecoin (CRYPTO: DOGE) traded 2.4% higher at $0.1217. Among other major coins, Solana (SOL), Avalanche (AVAX), and Terra (LUNA) gained 5%, 8%, and 16%, respectively.

The biggest rallies were observed in privacy coins like Monero (XMR) and Zcash (ZEC) which surged by 26% and 19% on Wednesday.

Comment Guidelines

We encourage you to use comments to engage with users, share your perspective and ask questions of authors and each other. However, in order to maintain the high level of discourse we’ve all come to value and expect, please keep the following criteria in mind: 

  • Enrich the conversation
  • Stay focused and on track. Only post material that’s relevant to the topic being discussed.
  • Be respectful. Even negative opinions can be framed positively and diplomatically.
  •  Use standard writing style. Include punctuation and upper and lower cases.
  • NOTE: Spam and/or promotional messages and links within a comment will be removed
  • Avoid profanity, slander or personal attacks directed at an author or another user.
  • Don’t Monopolize the Conversation. We appreciate passion and conviction, but we also believe strongly in giving everyone a chance to air their thoughts. Therefore, in addition to civil interaction, we expect commenters to offer their opinions succinctly and thoughtfully, but not so repeatedly that others are annoyed or offended. If we receive complaints about individuals who take over a thread or forum, we reserve the right to ban them from the site, without recourse.
  • Only English comments will be allowed.

Perpetrators of spam or abuse will be deleted from the site and prohibited from future registration at Investing.com’s discretion.
