Over the last weekend, oracle service provider Chainlink (LINK) made a strong move rallying all the way to $8. As of press time, LINK is trading at a price of $7.89 with a market cap of $3.8 billion.
The LINK price rally over the weekend came on the backdrop of strong whale activity. As per on-chain data provider Santiment, the LINK whale transactions touched a 4-month high over the weekend. It added:
“Chainlink whales have gotten quite active this weekend as market prices have teased the $8 level a few times. Saturday saw 33 different $LINK transactions exceeding a value of $1 million. This was the highest whale activity day since June 27th”.
Over the last month, Chainlink (LINK) has been on the radar of investors and crypto traders. The whale activity has remained throughout strong this month of October.
Currently, $8 serves as a strong resistance for Chainlink (LINK). A breakout above the same could set up LINK for a strong rally ahead. For a long time, Chainlink has been consolidating strong in the $6-$8 range.
In a fresh competition to Chainlink, crypto exchange Binance launched its Oracle Network last week.
