Van de Poppe, similar to other well-known traders, nonetheless expressed enthusiasm for purchasing altcoins at lower prices.

Accompanying him was Crypto Tony, who foretold that there would be “incredible entries” in 2023.

For existing traders, however, the harm had already been inflicted – CoinGlass data revealed that long liquidations totaled $320 million by June 10, and the day was not yet finished.

An additional $70 million in short positions also disappeared.
