- Chainlink has been seeing strong whale accumulation and address activity since the beginning of this year. Sharks and whale addresses, holding 10,000-1 million LINK, have continued to pile up tokens during the bear market, which typically signifies investors’ bullishness.
- Even as one cohort of investors – whales holding between 10,000 and 100,000 LINK – offloaded their tokens earlier last month, LINK addresses holding between 100,000 and 10 million coins, on the other hand, were also accumulating. This managed to lessen the sell-off blow.
- The oracle service provider recently announced 14 integrations across four chains, namely Arbitrum, BNBChain, Ethereum, and Polygon, which could have aided the ongoing pump.
- On the NFT side of things, Chainlink partnered with Seedify Fund, which will act as a major incubator and launchpad for blockchain games, NFT, and metaverses.
- To strengthen its position and transform as the AWS in the Web 3 space, Chainlink announced plans to launch staking in December.
- While speaking at the SmartCon 2022, its co-founder Sergey Nazarov also unveiled a new economic model for the Web3 services platform.
- Besides, Chainlink’s oracles have increased to nearly 1,000 – a 30% jump since January. The number of projects integrating its services has also upped from 1,000 to 1,500 during the same period.
