Popular Altcoin Chainlink Gains Acceleration This Weekend
Popular altcoin Chainlink ( LINK ) fighters have won the match but haven’t won the war yet.

It was trading at $ 13 on weekdays.
This is the third weekend when Chainlink’s price has risen significantly. But there is a good reason for traders not to be overjoyed right away – last week Chainlink had reached nearly $ 20 before suddenly dropping on Monday. It had been in a bearish trend ever since. You can think of this recent price increase as the boxer who took a big hit, standing up again.
