Liquidated data from CoinGlass showed that other mainstream tokens like Arbitrum (ARB), Litecoin (LTC) and Dogecoin (DOGE) also recorded significant liquidations within the time frame under review.

Per the liquidation from CoinGlass, the exchange that recorded the highest liquidation is OKX, followed by Binance and Bybit completing the top three list.
