Chainlink was among the first cryptocurrency to set a new all-time high in 2020, but given its absence during the 2017 peak was facing different circumstances and no overhead resistance. The altcoin was nearly unaffected entirely by the bear market over the last couple of years, breaking record after record.
However, a massive bearish divergence has formed as the unstoppable cryptocurrency touches an ascending trendline for the third time. Could this be the start of the altcoin’s first extended bear phase? Or are bulls preparing a much stronger push to finally blast through the long-term trendline?
Chainlink At Risk Of First Major Corrective Phase, According To Bear Div
In 2017, Bitcoin’s meteoric rise and the explosion of ICOs built on Ethereum put the cryptocurrency asset class on the map. But after a storm of exuberance and parabolic price action, the bubble burst and these assets came crashing down by as much as 90% or more in many cases.
Even the crypto asset with the most longevity, Bitcoin, fell a full 84% from high to low, resulting in a three year bear market. During that time, however, Chainlink made its debut in the crypto space, and its been on an unstoppable uptrend ever since.
The altcoin rose from nearly worthless to over $25 recently at its 2021 peak. Chainlink went from being born during a bear market, to hitting all-time highs left and right even before a bull market was confirmed.
Since things turned bullish, even Chainlink joined in Bitcoin and Ethereum and set yet another record peak. The entire market has once again turned back down, but the soaring altcoin remains near 2021 highs.
