Chainlink price performance
Chainlink steadily declined from Nov. 11 highs of $38.32 to lows of $16.72 during the Dec. 4 market sell-off. The price is presently consolidating around the $20 mark as investors seek clues on further action. The decentralized oracle blockchain remains down more than 60% from May 10 all-time highs of $52.88.
Whales typically take advantage of periods of dips or macro consolidation to accumulate their favorite tokens.
