Chainlink Market Cap Surges 19% As Whales Take Profits Amid Bullish Trends

Chainlink (LINK) has experienced a significant surge, with its market cap climbing by 19% in the past 24 hours, decoupling from the broader altcoin market.

This rally has brought the number of 100,000+ LINK holders to 564, marking a 4.6% increase in just five weeks. 

If social dominance remains stable and FOMO (fear of missing out) doesn’t dominate, bullish conditions for LINK appear likely.

Despite the price spike, several on-chain reports indicate that whales are taking profits. Spartan Group recently deposited 140,400 LINK ($2.32 million) to Binance.

These tokens were originally withdrawn from Binance at an average price of $6.472 in July and September 2023. With LINK now priced at $16.54, Spartan Group realized an estimated profit of $1.41 million, a 156% gain.

Whales Capitalizing On LINK Price Surge To Make Profits 

Roosh (@KingsFantom) also made a significant move, selling 201,869 LINK ($2.78 million) at $13.80. However, his timing wasn’t perfect, as the price of LINK increased by approximately 18% shortly after his sale. Had he waited, he could have earned an additional $497,000.

Another trader sold 117,440 LINK ($1.84 million) at $15.71, realizing a profit of $205,800. This trader has a history of trading LINK 15 times, with 9 profitable trades, resulting in a 60% win rate and a total profit of $267,800.

As Chainlink continues to attract attention and significant investment, its market performance is being closely monitored.

The recent whale activity highlights both the potential for substantial gains and the risks associated with timing the market. Overall, the outlook for LINK remains bullish, especially if social dynamics and investor behavior align favorably in the coming days.
