After it got listed on Coinbase Pro and Coinbase retail platforms, Chainlink (LINK), the digital token on the Chainlink network, skyrocketed by more than 117%. Chainlink blockchain focuses on linking smart contracts to external data sources.
More specifically, Chainlink (LINK) surged from $2.03 to $4.41 during the three days when the Coinbase listings got announced. That is known in the crypto world as the “Coinbase effect,” and it is a phenomenon when a cryptocurrency skyrockets immediately after its listing on the Coinbase crypto exchange platforms. The same already happened with Litecoin (LTC), Bitcoin Cash (BCH), Augur (REP), and EOS (EOS) when they got on Coinbase.
However, judging after the recent performance of Chainlink (LINK) in the cryptocurrency market, the so-called “Coinbase effect” seems to slow down for LINK digital token. The surge that Chainlink (LINK) experienced might also be because this crypto is a smaller altcoin, has lower trading volumes, and is not as available on significant exchanges with a broad presence across the US.
