- Chainlink price plummeted by 40% in the past 48 hours touching $20.8.
- LINK whales haven’t sold, which indicates they feel confident in the digital asset.
- Chainlink aims for a massive rebound towards $36.
Chainlink suffered a major drop just like the rest of the market, falling from a high of $34.2 to a low of 20.8 in less than 36 hours. Despite the significant sell-off, whales haven’t sold their holdings and remain confident in the digital asset.
Chainlink price faces one critical resistance level before a jump to $36
On the 12-hour chart, LINK bulls have defended the 100-SMA support level two times in a row and now aim to crack the 50-SMA resistance point. A breakout above this level could quickly drive Chainlink price towards $36 as there is almost no resistance above.

The most significant factor in favor of the bulls is that whales haven’t sold during the last sell-off. Since February 11, the number of whales holding between 100,000 and 1,000,000 LINK coins ($2,700,000 and $27,000,000) actually increased by one.
LINK Holders Distribution
The In/Out of the Money Around Price (IOMAP) model adds a lot of credence to the bullish outlook above as it shows no significant barriers above $28, which is the 50-SMA resistance level.

However, there is only one significant support area between $26.27 and $27 with 27 LINK coins in volume from 11,620 addresses. Losing this massive support area could quickly drive Chainlink price down to $23.
