According to recent data shared by Glassnode, the Gini coefficient for LINK has surged to a new all-time high, along with metrics involving LINK transactions.
Meanwhile, Whale Alert has detected several LINK transfers from whales, totaling more than 1 mln LINK, or around $18,000,000.
LINK Gini coefficient surges
The Gini coefficient (index) in economics describes wealth inequality within a nation or a group of people. Now, Glassnode has tweeted that this metric for LINK has hit a new all-time high of 0.972.
The chart shows that the coefficient started rising last year in late June, then it made an even sharper rise on July 3, showing a stable increase since then.
This is not the first time Glassnode has reported that the majority of LINK coins is concentrated in a small number of addresses.
On Wednesday, the agency shared a chart showing that LINK's balance of the top 1 percent addresses printed a 2-year high of 78.619%.
The curves on the Gini coefficient chart and on this chart are roughly the same, and the second began rising in June of last year.
LINK has also reached new highs regarding its transaction volume, according to Glassnode.
Whales transfer almost 1,000,000 LINK
Over the past ten hours, Whale Alert has spotted four major transactions, carrying 200,000 LINK on average, and two smaller ones worth 100,000 and 70,000 coins.
In fiat, this is equal to around $18,000,000.
With the spike of LINK to an all-time high of $17.74 (as per CoinMarketCap), the interest of traders and DeFi fans is surging.
