Retail LINK holders flowing in

The amount of LINK owned by crypto whales has slumped from 70.7 percent of the total coins in circulation to 64.5 percent.

The analytics data provider pointed out that this is not due to whales making any sales, no. Rather, new LINK addresses are being created all the time as retail users are flowing into the ecosystem.

The supply of LINK bought by retail LINK investors has grown significantly throughout the year.
