What happened?

Beginning at roughly 11:30 AM UTC+8 on April 18, 2021, a flash crash affected the ETH/USDC market on Perpetual Protocol. Following a period of high volatility on both centralized and decentralized markets, we saw a period of instability across all exchanges as the price of ETH dropped significantly.

What resulted was a cascade of liquidations of large and highly levered positions — the price reached a low of nearly $870 USD before recovering back to the market price.

Price of ETH/USDC perpetual on Binance during the same period, with a low of $1900.
