LINK’s Rally in Q3 2020, Was a Bubble
Back in mid-August, crypto analyst @CryptoWhale warned crypto traders and investors of the potential of ChainLink (LINK) experiencing a massive pullback as is the case with all market bubbles. In an elaborate Twitter thread, @CryptoWhale provided 8 characteristics of a financial bubble.
- Extrapolation – the act of investors using past data to assume an asset will rise at a certain rate forever
- Herding – investors following other investors as was seen in the dot com boom
- Celebrities shilling the project as was the case with Dave Portnoy
- Mania phase where the media popularizes the market action
- Denial – investors refuse to sell because holding earlier was successful
- No exit strategy – continuing to hope for exponential growth
- Marketing – investors eager to pump their bags shill the project even harder
- Coin supply concentration – 70% of LINK’s supply is held by 9 whales
Zeus Capital Continues to Call for a Lower Value of LINK
Going back in time to mid-August, it can be observed that LINK marines called on each other to liquidate Zeus Capital. The latter team had branded ChainLink as vaporware and the value of LINK would drop to zero. The same Zeus Capital has taken to Twitter to point out that LINK is falling and could end up being valued at $4 or lower. Below are two tweets by Zeus Capital predicting another ChainLink (LINK) market dump.

If $10 Breaks, LINK Could Continue on its Freefall
A brief glance at the LINK/USDT chart reveals that ChainLink has been relying on the $10 price area for support. From around the 25th of September, ChainLink’s price has been oscillating between $9.40 and $11.20.
If ChainLink fails to maintain this area as support, LINK could very well be on a path to fulfilling Zeus Capital’s predictions of $4 or lower.
As with all analyses of ChainLink, traders and investors are advised to use stop losses and low leverage when trading LINK on the various derivatives platforms.
