Chainlink (LINK) witnessed a price jump of nearly 19% on Thursday as the blockchain oracle rolls out a new protocol combined with upticks in whale transactions and trading volume. LINK’s new Cross-Chain Interoperability Protocol (CCIP) launched its “Mainnet Early Access phase” on the Ethereum (ETH), Optimism (OP), Polygon (MATIC) and Avalanche (AVAX) blockchains earlier this week. The interoperability protocol aims to provide an easy way to build cross-chain applications and services and provide simplified token transfers.
Uptick in Whale Transactions & Trading Volume
Crypto analytics firm Santiment also notes in a new analysis that LINK’s trading volumes have been “gradually picking up steam recently,” indicating increased interest in the asset. Whale transactions involving LINK are also on the rise, according to the analytics firm. Says Santiment, “In the often volatile world of cryptocurrencies, the activity of ‘whales,’ or large-scale holders, serves as an insightful parameter for market trends.”
