Record inflow of stablecoins flood spot exchanges; Is a Bitcoin rally imminent?

The value of Bitcoin (BTC) is facing bearish pressure, with the asset staring at a possible breach below the crucial $20,000 level in the wake of the latest Federal Reserve interest rate hike. 

Amid the depressed prices, investors are monitoring crypto-related events likely to trigger a possible rally, with transactions relating to stablecoins being cast into the limelight.

Implication of increased stablecoin inflow into exchanges 

Although Bitcoin has failed to break past the $21,000 level, the activities within stablecoins can be a good sign for the asset’s price in the long term. Notably, with Bitcoin trading around the $20,000 zone, focus on a possible price bottom that can spur interest from institutions and retail investors

Historically, when stablecoins are sent to exchanges in significant quantities, it can indicate that institutions are planning to buy. In this case, whales are potentially positioned to jump in once the value signals a bottom. 

On the flip side, despite the positive outlook, the inflow of stablecoins can trigger short-term price volatility. 

In recent weeks, Bitcoin has continued to record low volatility, surpassing some of the traditional finance products. However, a spike in whale activity can result in volatility, triggering a possible short-term rally.
