These addresses have collectively withdrawn more than 4.7 million LINK tokens from Binance [BNB], equivalent to over $31.5 million. This recent uptick in LINK withdrawals marked a significant increase compared to what was reported earlier this week.
During that period, approximately 35 wallets were created, and roughly $5 million worth of LINK tokens were withdrawn from Binance.
Exchange flow reflects Chainlink’s outflow
The CryptoQuant exchange flow metric indicated that the recent withdrawals have indeed impacted the flow of Chainlink. The chart illustrated a noticeable increase in outflows over the past few days since these withdrawals commenced.
At the time of this report, the exchange flow was recorded at approximately -247,900, signifying a net negative flow.
Additionally, the continuous outflow of these tokens from the exchange has resulted in a liquidity decline of LINK.
This reduction in liquidity could potentially trigger scarcity concerns and raise FUD (Fear, Uncertainty, Doubt) in the market, potentially contributing to an increase in LINK’s price.
Supply distribution shows an accumulation trend
According to Santiment’s supply distribution chart, there have been notable changes in Chainlink holdings of various address categories in the past few weeks.
Addresses with holdings ranging from 1,000 to 10,000 coins and 100,000 to 1 million coins have shown consistent increases during this period.
However, the most significant change has been observed in addresses holding 10,000 to 100,000 coins. The chart indicates a substantial spike in this category, particularly around 17 September.
As of this writing, this group has surged from approximately 7.8% to over 8% of the total supply.
The recent price trend of Chainlink has been intriguing to follow, with more upward movements than declines over the past 12 days, as observed on its daily timeframe chart.
Realistic or not, here’s LINK’s market cap in BTC’s terms
