Over the last month, the price of LINK fell by 7.21%, according to Messari.

New developments

This price of LINK, however, could be positively impacted by Chainlink’s plans for the future. According to their recent announcement, new developments are being made for their line of products, including VRFs (Verifiable Random Functions), CCIPs (Cross-Chain Interoperability Protocol), and Price Feeds.

If these additions improve the state of their products, it could attract more users to the Chainlink network.

However, at press time, the overall demand for one of Chainlink’s popular products, VRF, started to fall. According to Dune Analytics’ data, the number of requests for VRF on the Binance Smart Chain decreased from 21,378 to 10,892 over the last three months.

It remains to be seen whether the new upgrades will be enough to regenerate interest in the protocol.
