Chainlink’s Market Gains Momentum as Older Coin Shifts and Whale Activity Spike

Key Points:

  • Chainlink’s price surge is linked to significant older coin movements.
  • Whale transactions hit a yearly high, signaling investor interest in Chainlink.
  • LINK’s market cap growth strengthens its position in crypto rankings.

Chainlink has recently observed a substantial shift in its older coin holdings, a trend often associated with notable price fluctuations. Onchain data from Santiment mirrors a similar pattern seen on September 15th, followed by a remarkable 31% increase in Chainlink’s value over the two weeks.

From September 15th to the 29th, Chainlink witnessed its price escalate from $6.36 to $8.22. This increase coincided with a significant Age Consumed Spike, which reached 8.34 billion LINK on September 15th. Fast forward to November 28th, the cryptocurrency experienced another significant spike in its Age Consumed. It hits 4.28 billion LINK, the most substantial since the September surge.

Moreover, Alicharts, a crypto analyst, shared insights on X, whereby Chainlink recently saw its largest spike in whale transactions for the year. On November 28th, the network recorded over 2,600 transactions, each exceeding $100,000. This high activity level by whales indicates a growing interest and a shift in investment strategy towards Chainlink within the crypto community.

Market analysts closely watch such movements of older coins and the surge in whale transactions as they often precede significant price movements in the cryptocurrency market. For Chainlink, these indicators suggest a potential upward trend in its market value, drawing attention from investors and traders alike.

As of this writing, LINK is exchanging hands at $14.78 above the key level of $14.00 after forming lower lows in the previous session. Although the bulls have successfully driven the price above this crucial support level, LINK must close above the resistance level of $15.00 to confirm its bullish reversal.

Chainlink’s latest developments in coin movements and whale transaction activities have again put it in the spotlight in the crypto market. As the community and investors keep a close watch, these trends may pave the way for further analysis and predictions regarding the future trajectory of LINK’s value. Such events underline the interconnectedness of market activities and their potential impact on cryptocurrency prices.
