Chainlink's 14% run on the market did not end with price action only. Following the price increase, the number of whale-tier wallets also increased and reached a four-year high, according to Santiment. While the supply is tied more to whale-tier addresses, in the correction period, retail traders and investors may face significant losses due to increased potential selling pressure.

Unpleasant correlation

According to the chart provided, we can clearly see a negative correlation between the increasing number of whales and the negative price action that took place from May to July and September.
