The main reason for the decline in BTC price is the former cryptocurrency exchange Mt., which stole thousands of Bitcoins in a hack years ago. 

Gox will begin paying BTC and BCH to its creditors. Before this development, the BTC price was in a downward trend and gradually moved away from the $ 70,000 level.

The decline rate in BCH, the other cryptocurrency that the bankrupt cryptocurrency exchange will distribute to its receivables, was recorded as approximately 8%.

The declines are due to the belief that creditors will sell their assets for what they bought. Recently, the German government started to transfer its BTCs to cryptocurrency exchanges, which also fueled the decline.

On the other hand, with the decline in BTC price, many futures positions were liquidated. Crypto assets worth $313 million were liquidated in the last 24 hours. $277 million of these were in short positions.
