Bitcoin is not undervalued yet despite stablecoin reserves hit pre-bull run levels

Bitcoin on-chain indicators currently signal that the asset has reached the undervalued area. However, unlike most cycle indicators like Puell Multiple and SOPR, Unspent Transaction Output Profit and Loss (UTXOs) is key in identifying when Bitcoin is undervalued. 

A cross in UTXOs profit and loss generates a buy signal for Bitcoin and affirms that BTC is undervalued. While other on-chain data helps understand the overall BTC phase, it is difficult to ascertain the buying time. When UTXOs in the profit and loss indicators were crossed, BTC price hit a floor, three halvings in a row.

Once a cross is generated in the chart above, Bitcoin could nosedive. Another key indicator of upcoming Bitcoin trend reversal is stablecoin reserves on exchanges. 

Stablecoin reserves on exchanges hit pre-bull run levels

Stablecoins like USD Tether (USDT) and USDC play a key role in Bitcoin price rallies. Since stablecoins are the point of entry, conversion of fiat to crypto, the flow of USDT and other stablecoins in the ecosystem has an impact on BTC price. Spot exchange stablecoin reserves have dropped to their pre-2021 bull run levels. At the same time, volatility in stablecoin inflows has hit an all-time high.

An increase of stablecoin inflow to the exchange is considered rising demand for assets like Bitcoin. Holders of large volumes of stablecoins increase their transfer to exchanges before a trend reversal and rally in BTC. With rising demand and higher volatility in stablecoin inflows, Bitcoin price is preparing for the next bull run.
