Incident Update: XRPUSD Perpetual Contract Wick Feb. 2

On Feb. 2, at 11:26AM UTC, the Bybit XRPUSD Perpetual Contract experienced a wick due to large sell/short orders that brought the Last Traded Price to 0.3106 — a 23.6% dip from the minute’s open price of 0.4068. The Mark Price that drives the liquidation engine stood firm. The Bybit team acted swiftly to address the issue and forestall further irregularities, and have since resolved the issue.

No liquidations happened as a result of the wick, as Bybit employs a Dual-Price Mechanism that reflects the real-time spot price on major exchanges to prevent liquidations from market manipulation; a number of Conditional Orders (including TP/SL orders) set to Last Traded Price were triggered following the price drop.
