Chainlink Price Prediction as LINK Pumps 8% After Breaking Key Multi-Week Price Range

Chainlink (LINK), the cryptocurrency that powers Chainlink’s blockchain interoperability network, surged 8% on Monday, outperforming the vast majority of the broader crypto market.

LINK was last trading in the $6.60s per token, having failed to muster a lasting break above its 200DMA at $6.70, though having managed to break cleanly to the north of its recent multi-week $5.80-$6.40 range.

While much of the broader market remains in malaise, industry observers cited recent partnerships with major global financial institutions and infrastructure providers as behind the cryptocurrency’s heightened buying pressure.

Back in June, Chainlink and the US Depository Trust and Clearing Corporation (DTCC) announced that they are collaborating on a SWIFT blockchain interoperability project.

Optimism about Chainlink’s SWIFT collaboration was likely in focus on Monday given that the blockchain protocol’s founder was speaking at SWIFT’s global networking event Sibos and touting the benefits and use case of the protocol.

Price Prediction – Where Next for Chainlink (LINK)?

Chainlink is positioning itself well to become a major winner in the crypto space in the coming years, given the strong interest from major institutions to leverage the network’s technology.

That suggests the long-term outlook for is very strong.

But for the speculators, it remains far to early to bet on a major improvement for LINK’s short-medium term price prospects.

Indeed, LINK remains locked well within its more than 16-month price range of around $5 to around $9.

That being said, a clean break to the north of the 200DMA at $6.70 could open the door to a run higher back towards the summer highs around $8.40 and then at the yearly highs around $8.80.

Chainlink (LINK) Alternatives to Consider

It’s always smart for crypto investors to hedge their bets, given the unpredictability of the market.

One excellent Litecoin (LTC) alternative that crypto investors should consider is a new coin being launched by , one of the internet’s largest retail investing communities.

The presale of $WSM has been a resounding success, with over $25 million raised, and dozens of major crypto industry influencers and analysts backing the coin for major success.

And investors are running out of time to get involved, with the presale scheduled to end in under 7 days.
