But despite, the halt in the rally, stablecoin inflows into exchanges are rising once again, according to the latest data from CryptoQuant. In the crypto market, traders often hedge their holdings against stablecoins like Tether (USDT) and USDC, rather than cashing out via withdrawals to bank accounts. Typically, exchanges have a three to seven-day processing period for cash deposits, and when traders want to re-enter the cryptocurrency market, moving cash from their bank accounts back to exchanges becomes cumbersome. Hence, when stablecoins begin to flow into exchanges again — as seen by the green spikes in the chart above — it suggests that sidelined capital may be looking to get back into Bitcoin.
When Bitcoin rallies without a noticeable rise in stablecoin inflows, it increases the probability of an unsustainable uptrend and a short-term correction. If the trend of sidelined capital moving back into the crypto market continues, there is a high probability that this will further fuel Bitcoin’s momentum resulting in a broader rally.
