A Weakening Bitcoin Could Eclipse Grayscale Launching a Chainlink Trust
At the time of writing, Chainlink (LINK) is trading at $29.30 with the $28.50 to $29 price area acting as a strong support zone amidst what looks like a weakening Bitcoin. Earlier today, the King of Crypto took a brief nosedive to the $55,400 price area after yesterday’s peak value of around $60k.
The dip by Bitcoin caused a ripple effect in the crypto-verse with Chainlink dipping from yesterday’s $31.50 to today’s lows around $29.
To note is that the weekly close is only hours away and chances are that Bitcoin revisits the $55k support zone with $52k and $50k offering other areas of interest should selling pressure continue to bombard BTC.
This in turn means that altcoins such as Chainlink will once again be at the mercy of Bitcoin despite the bullish news of Grayscale launching a LINK trust. Therefore, caution is advised when longing Chainlink today. A wait-and-see approach should be considered due to the potential of the weekly causing further losses in the crypto-markets.
