The total market cap of the coin is at $1,229,363,391. According to a blog post on June 26, Coinbase Pro announced it has added support for Chainlink. Coinbase listed two trading pairs, LINK/USD and LINK/ETHER and the LINK/ETHER pair is already in motion according to a twitter post.

The Bottom Line

Generally, analysts express that the recent pull-back in the crypto market is in line with a bull run and is healthy. Notable crypto trader and investor Josh Rager remarked on Twitter, “At this point in time, I consider bitcoin extremely bullish.” He went on to note that most people are expecting a 30% pullback before continuing up which might not be the case this time around, ”18% pullback might be the new 30% pullback we’re expecting.”

The uptrend witnessed after the Thursday correction could be a sign that this price rally will continue in the long-term even though the market volatility makes it quite difficult to predict the direction the crypto market will take. Also, it is evident that bitcoin bulls are back with guns blazing and the price rally will be off the charts in the near future.
