Monday market decline triggered second-highest amount of liquidations in DeFi space's history


Monday morning's market fall triggered the second-highest amount of DeFi-related liquidations in the ecosystem's history, according to available data. 

In total, out of the more than $24.1 million worth of liquidations, approximately $13.7 million came from DeFi protocol Compound. Aave saw the second-highest number in liquidations, making up about $5.4 million of the total. 

The highest liquidation occurred November 26, 2020, when a momentary price increase in DAI led to Compound liquidating over $88.4 million worth of collateral.
