However, weekly data suggests LINK took a 32% price drop, in parallel with Bitcoin’s fall. From a high of $ 8.90 on June 8, LINK was trading at around $ 6.76 on June 14, according to CoinMarketCap.
LINK is currently trading at $ 6.37, up 0.46% in the last 24 hours. Earlier on Wednesday, the token peaked at $ 6.86 before falling to $ 5.88. Since LINK price steadily recovered and is likely to find the next resistance, which is said to be around $ 8.
According to Sheldon Sniper’s analysis, the next two resistance levels of LINK are $ 8 and $ 9.64. On the other side, the Chainlink token is likely to find a support price around $ 6.19.
Deeper Support For Long Term Position
Meanwhile, a trader by name Crypto Tony on Twitter revealed he was looking for next support between $ 4 and $ 5. For long term holding of LINK, he suggested a support level under $ 5.
“LINK between $ 4 and $ 5 is the area I am looking for a bounce for a longer term play‼ If we show signs of demand I will be starting a position.”
Last week, Chainlink unveiled implementation plans on staking for the second half of 2022. Among the goals were achieving cryptoeconomic security and community participation. “Staking is a key mechanism that aims to bring a new layer of cryptoeconomic security to Chainlink,” it said.
