Bitcoin (BTC) was volatile this week, falling below $19k for the first time in 2 months; but it regained $21k to close the week. BTC open interest increased by $1.32 billion and aggregated funding rates turned positive this week as compared to last week, as traders rejoiced over the bounce. The coin’s drop to below $19k caused over $101 million long positions to be liquidated; its sudden upswing in price to $21k on September 9 then caused a short squeeze and over $130 million in short liquidations. For ETH, a total of $376 million short positions and $215 million long positions were liquidated this week.
