Realistic or not, here’s LINK market cap in BTC‘s terms


Investors are selling LINK

A Lookonchain’s tweet on 11 April revealed that tokens worth millions of dollars were recently sold. A whale who bought LINK from Binance four months ago transferred 1.2 million LINK, worth $8.88 million, to Binance via seven addresses.

In addition to that, another whale who bought LINK from Kraken in December 2021, transferred 1 million LINK worth $7.4 million, to Gate.io through 10 addresses. These sell offs indicate a decreased confidence in LINK among investors. 

The immediate effects of the transactions were reflected on LINK’s daily chart as its price declined by nearly 3% in the last 24 hours. A similar trend was also noted on Token Terminal’s graph, which showed a decline in the number of LINK token holders over the past 180 days.

Sell pressure is dominant in the market

As per CryptoQuant, Chainlink’s exchange reserve rose at press time, which indicated the arrival of higher selling pressure. This was further proved by LINK’s exchange inflow as it spiked considerably of late.

Santiment’s chart revealed that LINK’s supply on exchanges was also soaring. This was accompanied by a decline in supply outside of exchanges, which is a typical bearish signal. 

However, it was interesting to see that despite the price decline, LINK’s weighted sentiment showed signs of recovery by improving marginally.
