The CEO of CryptoQuant, Ki Young Ju told Cointelegraph that while the inflows may not be very high in terms of dollar value, they represent an upward trend among retail investors.::

“Deposits from more retail investors generally mean that market sentiment is turning bullish.”

Ju believes that the high number of addresses and transactions in the market suggests that the inputs have come from a large number of retail investors rather than a few large players.. The assumption is that investors will send stable coins to exchanges if they want to convert them into other crypto assets, mostly Bitcoin. Yesterday, Tether spent $ 450 million on the Tron (TRX) network. The company’s CTO, Paolo Ardoino, clarified before the amount has been approved but not spent::

“PSA: $ 300 million inventory replenishment on the Tron network. Please note this is an authorized but unspent transaction. This means this amount will be used as inventory for issuance inquiries for the next period.”
