USDC Exchange Reserve Spikes – Can This Help Push Bitcoin Back Up?

On-chain data shows the USDC exchange reserves sharply rose recently, something that could help push Bitcoin back up after the latest drop.

USDC Exchange Reserve Observes Sharp Rise In Recent Days

As pointed out by an analyst in a CryptoQuant post, the large amount of USD Coin that flowed into exchanges recently could be deployed to act as fuel for Bitcoin.

The “exchange reserve” is an indicator that measures the total amount of USDC currently sitting in wallets of all centralized exchanges.

Since stablecoins are tied to fiat (which in the case of USDC is USD), their value is as constant as the fiat currency itself. Because of this, investors often take shelter by shifting coins like Bitcoin into stablecoins during times when they want to avoid the volatility generally associated with much of the crypto market.

Once these investors feel the prices are right to dive back into the volatile markets, they exchange their stables for whatever crypto they want to buy into.

An especially large amount of buying from such holders can therefore help propel the prices of the major cryptos like Bitcoin.

Now, here is a chart that shows the trend in the USDC exchange reserve over the last few months:
