Chainlink (LINK) has been one of the fastest-rallying coins over recent weeks.

The leading Ethereum-based cryptocurrency underwent a strong bounce from its $7.75 lows to a recent high just shy of $12. This meant that from the lows, Chainlink gained over 45%, making it one of the top-performing coins from the September lows.

LINK has dropped slightly from its highs. The Chainlink still has upside from here despite the loss of upward momentum. Key trends showing this include strong futures trends and a negative funding rate, which suggests that shorts could be squeezed from here.

When discussing his views on cryptocurrencies with high market capitalizations, he questioned why LINK has such a high market cap. He specifically used the word “perplexing” to describe what he thinks about Chainlink having a “$10 billion market cap.”

Others have echoed this skepticism.

Of note, Chainlink has been seeing increasing fundamental use by a series of contracts and applications on Ethereum. For one, Chainlink’s new Proof of Reserves technology was just adopted by BitGo for Wrapped Bitcoin, a leading DeFi product.
