LINK, the native token of the leading oracle network, Chainlink, has seen tremendous growth since the beginning of July. In fact, according to Santiment, the altcoin’s price has rallied by over 41% since 1 July.

Since the end of June, the total percentage of the circulating supply of LINK in known exchanges has declined. Such decline is usually a precursor to growth in the price of a crypto-asset. Moreover, previously dormant addresses holding LINK have shown signs of activity since the beginning of July. Hence, the significant price action since.

What else do we know about the token’s performance over the last month?

LINK has failed to sink

At the beginning of the bull rally in July, LINK was trading at $6.07. At press time, still, on an uptrend, the token exchanged hands at $8.45. As the alt’s price rose, its trading activity also intensified. LINK’s trading volume was pegged at 423.76 million, at press time, growing by 5% in the last 38 days. Worthy of mention is the 1.07 billion logged-in trading volume by LINK on 29 July. 

At the same time, the crypto was spotted with an 11% hike in price over the last 24 hours. Also, trading activity was up by 73.49% within the same period.
