The bullish camp made a comeback in the Monday morning trading session in Europe, propelling Bitcoin into a new price discovery phase. At the time of writing, BTC is hovering around $71,000 on multiple exchanges, establishing an all-time high. On that day, the cryptocurrency experienced a 3% increase, coupled with a weekly surge of 11.3%.

This momentum triggered the liquidation of leveraged positions amounting to approximately $50 million, with $44 million attributed to short selling. Data from CoinGlass indicates that the majority of the liquidation activities took place on OKX.

This significant milestone occurs as the cryptocurrency market continues to attract widespread attention and substantial investments from both retail and institutional investors, particularly following the approval of a series of Bitcoin ETFs in January. Before reaching this new peak, Bitcoin recorded its highest weekly candle close at $69,062 on Bitstamp. Meanwhile, the second-largest cryptocurrency, Ethereum, recently surpassed the $4,000 threshold.

Data from CoinGlass reveals that, amid recent price fluctuations, the market has witnessed a significant liquidation event, reaching a total value of $336.22 million in just the past 24 hours. The majority of this liquidation stems from unwinding long positions, totaling $224.73 million. Meanwhile, short positions make up the remaining portion, with a total value of $111.49 million.

In a short time frame, the total liquidation value in the market surged to $39.68 million, indicating high volatility in the cryptocurrency market throughout the day. Short positions played a substantial role in this figure, contributing a total value of $37.65 million, while long positions amounted to only $2.03 million.
