During the first two weeks of April, the volume of liquidated positions in the Ethereum lending markets reached $127.8 million, exceeding monthly values at least since June 2022. This data is provided by The Block.

The dramatic events in the summer of 2022 were dictated by investors’ reaction to the crash of Terra.

The spike in the indicator was triggered by the cryptocurrency price crash on April 12-13.

The majority of liquidations are attributed to the Aave protocol ($79.4 million) and Compound (~$48.3 million).
