??? #Chainlink is currently sitting at just under $18 after the mild #altcoin resurgence over the weekend. We notably have seen that $LINK's development activity, measured by significant daily #github updates, is now outpacing $ETH's daily activity. https://t.co/ZIk3qCUKPZ pic.twitter.com/AEbAUuaQqU— Santiment (@santimentfeed) February 7, 2022
