NFTs and more…
Chainlink also witnessed growth in its NFT ecosystem over the last week. This was because LINK’s total NFT trade count and total NFT trade volume in USD remained consistently high, according to Santiment.
Not only the NFT ecosystem, but LINK‘s performance on the price front was optimistic as well. In the last 24 hours, LINK’s price surged by 7%. According to CoinMarketCapat the time of writing, LINK was trading at $6.09 with a market capitalization of more than $3 billion.
In addition, LINK remained one of the top choices of whales, as it was on the list of the most used smart contracts for the top 100 biggest Ethereum whales as on 10 January.

Are the tables turning for Chainlink?
Apart from the current bullish market condition, a few on-chain metrics revealed the possible reason for the price pump.
For example, LINK‘s Market Value to Realized Value (MVRV) Ratio registered an uptick, which was bullish. LINK’s social volume also remained relatively high, reflecting its popularity in the crypto space.
As per CryptoQuant’s data, LINK’s net deposits on exchanges were low compared to the seven-day average. This indicated less selling pressure. However, not everything was picture perfect as the rest of the metrics increased the possibility of LINK’s bull run coming to a halt.
LINK’s network growth has decreased drastically over the last few days, which was a negative signal for a blockchain. Moreover, LINK’s active addresses were also decreasing, indicating a lower number of users.
