The world’s leading smart contract platform has lost $169.64 million, or more than four times the $38.24 million value of Bitcoin, the largest crypto asset by market capitalization, in the past 24 hours.

According to the market information platform Sentimentthe price of the largest altcoin fell as traders expect ETH to sink before the merger happens.

“As traders bet that Ethereum will fall until the merge, short liquidations have been the story so far. After ETH prices fell to $1,565 following Tuesday’s CPI report, traders are anticipating a wrong bet on the downside following this mild recovery to $1,635.

“Ethereum Merger Day was justifiably the dominant trend, even with the expected outcome now complete and relatively drama-free. Over the past year, ETH has seen less interest, but this event will drive volatility for the near future.”
