Why LINK Will Be Bigger than BTC
In an in-depth May 2020 report, the team at Cane Island explained that ChainLink was ‘a new and promising incarnation of blockchain that allows for the interaction of real-world information’. ChainLink is the first of its kind to spearhead oracle-interaction blockchains. Additionally, the price of LINK was somewhat immune to Bitcoin’s price action.
Unlike most other cryptocurrencies and tokens, LINK was not materially influenced by Bitcoin’s price movements. The merit to this finding lies not only in an investment diversification benefit, but in that almost none of the popular naysay arguments against Bitcoin would have much weight or applicability to LINK.
Additionally, the fate of LINK in the crypto markets was highly dependant on Chainlink user growth that stands at 17% per month.
We found that LINK’s user growth rate has been an astonishing 17% per month. Our opinion is that ChainLink has viable real-world business application. LINK does not simply serve as a speculative store of value or medium of exchange.
Therefore, adoption of the ChainLink protocol by businesses and governments for legitimate purposes has the potential to further drive adoption of the LINK token.
