The increase in stablecoins reserves inside exchanges can happen for two main reasons. One, Bitcoin and the market are plummeting and investors are selling their coins, which increases the number of stablecoins on exchanges.

Bitcoin vs Stablecoins Reserves chart

Bitcoin’s current price is around $32,000. Back on January 2, 2021, BTC price was trading at $32,000 as well and the total stablecoin reserve was about $3.13 billion. Currently, it is $4.12 billion, despite Bitcoin price being the same. This indicates that around $1 billion of stablecoins have been deposited into exchanges with the intention to buy the dip.

What’s the best time to buy Bitcoin’s dip?

Bitcoin has established a descending triangle pattern with a support level of around $30,000 on the 12-hour chart. So far, bulls have defended the psychological support point of $30,000 several times. Aggressive buyers can enter now expecting Bitcoin price to crack the resistance trendline at $33,300.
