Large entities on the Ethereum network have been accumulating decentralized oracle service Chainlink (LINK) over the last 14 days, on-chain data shows.
According to blockchain tracking service Lookonchain, a total of 30 addresses, which are potentially the same individual, have accumulated 2.6 million LINK tokens worth over $18.5 million from crypto exchange Binance.
“Whales are accumulating LINK recently.

At time of writing, LINK is trading at $7.42, up 2.7% on the day.
Lookonchain also spotted Ethereum whales making big moves over the weekend. According to the firm, A whale sent over $50 million in stablecoins to Binance in two transactions on Saturday, and has so far made one big ETH purchase.
“A whale transferred 30.73M USDC to #Binance yesterday and received 14,683 $ETH ($26M) from Binance 5 mins ago.
Then transferred 19.68M USDT to Binance again 20 mins ago.”
Lookonchain previously reported crypto whales driving up the price of privacy-centric altcoin MASK token throughout March, helping it outperform most of the digital asset markets.
“The price of MASK increased by ~44% today.
This market maker received 3.5 million MASK from address ‘0x5459’ [on March 17th].
At the same time, multiple related addresses withdrew MASK from exchanges one after another.
Drive up the price of MASK again!”
