Chainlink's (LINK) price has gained nearly 36% from lows of $5.52 on Nov. 21 to intraday highs of $7.5 seen at press time.
At the time of publication, LINK was trading at $7.35, up 7.71% in the last 24 hours and 15.68% on the weekly timeframe. Chainlink has also reentered the top 20 cryptos in terms of market cap, ranking the 19th largest with a valuation of $3.73 billion. LINK's price increase might have been partly fueled by the recent advancement of Chainlink's Oracle services.
There is increasing demand globally for transparent financial applications. With this new standard in user expectations, trillions of dollars' worth of value are poised to flow into the Web3 economy. As an oracle network, Chainlink enables developers to build Web3 applications with access to real-world data and off-chain computations.

Most recently, Chainlink announced a partnership with Tom N' Toms Coffee, a coffeehouse chain based in South Korea with over 400 branches in nine countries.

On Nov. 10, Chainlink Labs began offering proof-of-reserves auditing services to exchanges. After the FTX debacle, traders have been looking for greater clarity on exchange reserves, which might increase demand for oracle services like Chainlink and also boost the LINK price.
