Chainlink would trade at this price if LINK hits its all-time high market cap
Chainlink (LINK) reached an all-time high price of $52.70 on May 10, 2021, as well as an all-time high market cap of $22.798 billion five days before it.
Chainlink has an unpredictable circulating supply inflation. All LINK tokens in existence were created within the network’s official launch, but only a few were put into circulation, initially through an ICO, and later through arbitrary releases by Chainlink Labs and other shareholders.
Notably, there is a total of 1 billion LINK, from which around 462 million are still vested in non-circulating crypto wallets, ready to be released as per the company’s decisions. For 2023, Chainlink Labs had previously announced a yearly token inflation of around 7%.
With such an unpredictable model, Chainlink is highly affected by its token’s inflation. Considering data retrieved by Finbold on September 18, with a circulating supply of around 538.1 million LINK, the native token would be worth close to $42.36 — $10.34 (19.6%) less than its all-time high price in US dollars.
Moreover, market capitalization is usually used to measure the market’s perception of value in a given asset, as well as its speculative demand in a given moment. This means that Chainlink constantly needs an increased demand to meet historical prices with a previously much lower supply.

This one is showing upwards momentum and I think that the bottom is in.
Retests are ready to be bought. If we get $6.15-6.40 retest, that’s an entry towards $8. pic.twitter.com/1nqCroCKzp
