On Friday afternoon as the number of coins has seen decent percentage gains, the market valuation of all the crypto assets in existence is around $365 billion.

As the coin is up over 8% today and trading for $0.30 per coin XRP still commands the third-largest market cap. Still holding the fourth position, is the stable coin tether still seeing massive trade volume and USDT’s $12 billion market valuation. 

Whereas the coin is down over 6.6% at press time, there is another forerunner this week called chainlink or LINK seeing it’s price peak at $18.00 per LINK. Holding the fifth-largest market cap, LINK has each token swapping for $16.77 apiece.

The Trader Who Believes Bitcoin Could Target $14k Next

In the near future, the popular trader and analyst Jacob Canfield had told the 59,000 followers that he envisions the price of BTC hitting $ 14,800 per coin. As Canfield tweeted on August 12, he thinks he continues to move up to test the 1.618 extensions as long as BTC holds $10,500 support, whereas 1.618 is at $13k as well as 2.618 is around $14,800. It was observed that the drop seen earlier was possibly the price suppression as well as re-accumulations of longs and a bear trap on shorts to fuel the next push up. An individual following the statement made by Canfield replied that it was actually happening. 

How Are The Regulated Futures Exchange CME Group Becoming Third-Largest Bitcoin Futures Mover?

Joining the ranks as one of the largest bitcoin futures providers by order of open interest is the Chicago Mercantile Exchange this week.

Why Is It That LINK May See Rough Seas Ahead?

During the last two weeks, there is no doubt that chainlink has jumped massively in value and even bumped Bitcoin cash from the fourth position. LINK is down at the press time after touching an all-time high of $18 per token. It is slowly recovering from its prior wounds as the coin is down 6%. According to Santiment the research and analysis firm, however, is of the opinion that chainlink may see rough waters ahead.

Santiment further tweeted that in the last week, LINK is up a whopping +68.7%. In its prolonged rally they are seeing signs that investors have become increasingly uncertain. For the #1 trending coin, speculative interest has exploded and they have looked into some concerning signs. Describing why LINK may see some volatile market action, the firm also published an analytical report.
