Am I the only one who feels like the emperor has no clothes? And I'm saying this with a 50k stack which I haven't sold a single token of yet. If you peel away all these layers of hype, coinbase hype, google hype, oracle hype, ISDA and derivatives hype, whatever else is fueling this parabolic rise right now...

...at the bottom of it all is a 5-node ETH ticker that returns the price of ETH every five minutes. That's it. Of course it might be much more than that some day, but it needs so much functionality added to it still (staking, rep, collateral, etc), most of which hasn't even begun to be designed or implemented yet. It still seems to me like far less than the sure thing that this price action is making it out to be. I feel like we have hit a Perfect Storm of hype events for Link this last month, but when the storm peters out we're going to be back where we started... holding our collective dick in our hands while we watch a 5-node ETH ticker pinging CMC over and over.

I have tiered sells set up for when we hit $10, then $15, then $22.5, etc. So I obviously am bullish longterm. But I have not seen such a disparity between market sentiment and underlying present-day value of the product since (I hate to say) the early 2018 days of random TRON and Verge moonpumps. I honestly feel this rise is unsustainable, unnatural and probably will hurt LINK's reputation as a serious project in the longterm.

Why? What is LINK's current utility such that it commands a market cap nearly as large as Monero (which actually does something utterly interesting, unique, and essential)? And again, I say this as someone bullish on LINK's future, but I feel this price action will be damaging to LINK's reputation. It is a violent hype-driven upward movement and likely to be followed closely by a violent fear-driven downward movement when the hype dries up. And then we will look exactly like BAT did post-coinbase launch, which will be depressing.

i know what you mean i’m feeling the same but then i look at CMC and realize even if it’s all hype there’s still more substance in LINK than every coin between us and ethereum

That is just more hype and speculation. It seems unlikely, given that rumors of a 'private' pivotal with far more development and functionality than the public pivotal would have suggested turned out to be bunk on mainnet drop.

I feel like the only reason you'd act with such kneejerk repugnance is if you were afraid what I said was true. Pic related is my binance balance, I have another 7k that I transferred to CB. Haven't sold a single one yet. I am not trying to swing the price, I am just genuinely flustered that expectations are becoming exponentially detached from reality. And when they synchronize again, it will be a painful wake-up call.

It feels nice looking at my net worth and seeing that I could buy a house with it, but I recognize this feeling and it was the feeling I had in January 2018 when I held 190k XLM up to the top and back down to 30c (embarassing, I went all in LINK two months later). You'll scream at me and say LINK is different. I agree... it has long-term prospects, XLM does't. But its present-day value is jack shit. It doesn't do anything. That is my concern.

You're completely right. There's only barebones functionality. And even if they rolled out all the promised features, there's no adoption from an established company that we can point to happening in the near future. Oracle with its startups don't count. I'm talking actually use for business. There's just not that much there. This pump is based on nothing substantial. But you can say that for a lot of the top 25 cryptos. And no one cared much about real adoption in the last bullrun.

You could phrase your post another way. We have no functionality and adoption and we're hitting these levels anyway. This could just be discovery of the "real" price. Once more functionality gets added and the emperor get some new clothes we could moon violently. But I am predicting a huge dump soon.

If you can't tell the difference between mass media attention, normie fomo and the mt gox guy dumping btc at the top of the fomo vs people fomoing based on announcements and speculation then I don't know what to tell you. BTC dumped and took the whole market with it, here it's mostly link and btc rising together.

Bitcoin did something new, interesting and valuable the moment it was created, like it or not. It offered an alternative currency, banking, and store-of-value option which had never been seen before in the history of life on earth. Sure much of the currency function has been eroded as the mempool's clogged up and better currency coins have been minted, but just by being the OG decentralized ledger it has a brand name that reinforces peoples' faith in it as a store of value. It's all arbitrary and phantasmal (we could all decide that limited edition mickey mouse wristwatches are the new global store of value and it would be true), but it's still reality.

LINK has, I hate to say it, not yet done anything new. It's still an ERC677 token that has no utility within the project that created it. It might have a function someday, I certainly hope that it has a function someday and that it makes me fabulously wealthy via staking, but that someday isn't now and the disparity between market valuation and underlying value is embarassing, honestly. There will be a reckoning.

Google and Oracle has given LINK enough credibility to be viewed as the de facto blockchain middleware project. And now its starting to enter into crypto investors and speculators mind. Bit by bit.

When they first discover it, they will go through the same process as us, unraveling the infinite rabbit hole. See some of the top tier OC memes. All the breadcrumbs. Eventually they will reach the understand Chainlink like a LINK marine, but it will be too late - as we're already at $1000.

Always stay clear in thought, even amidst intoxicating triumph.

We were harshly reminded of that this week when BTC fell from 13.8k to 11.2k in an hour. All the moonbois in the BitMEX trollbox were saying that BTC would be 16k-20k within the next few days got a harsh dose of reality.

Tell me the function it has today. It doesn't have one, other than to be transferred between ETH wallets like every other ERC. "Making me rich" is not a function. If you fully acknowledge this, then the current valuation begins to look absurd, even clownish. We're in unicorn territory, an ETH ticker is being currently valued higher than a unicorn startup.

chainlink even doesnt have own blockchain, so is it legit crypto at all

ive trying to understand what this chainlink do, but no one could not explain what it do or solve, some talking solve some oracle problem, but when to be specific, no one could tell me what that means

it has no value other than pump and dump. You got lucky and made some money. GTFO

>> No.14454329

realize what you are saying. You have enough to buy a house, yet you are holding an ethereum token that after 2 years, can only fetch the price of ETH. At current standing, it is completely useless.

You already held XLM to the peak and down. And now you are going to do the same with LINK.

You seem like a pretty rationale guy, so I'm not sure why you made this thread. Clearly, you are thinking logically while everyone else is euphoric, and you're only going to get responses from people who also are euphoric.

BTC is chilling right now. Either it continues to moon, in which case, this money from gamblers who went into LINK at the moment will leave and ride BTC. So your bags will go down. LINK it top volume on Binance right now. That is literally the top of volume and it can't go higher.

I mean, I know you won't listen to me, but I used to have 6 figures in ICX, and held it back down like a retard and regretted it for a long time before selling. A lot of people will argue that LINK is better. I wholeheartedly agree. But at the core, these are ALL useless shitcoins that have not proven anything. The only ones honestly worth a damn are BTC and ETH, unironically.

Anyways, I'm going to stop wasting my time. Good luck. When it crashes (not if, but when), will you be happy with yourself?

I somewhat agree with OP but I think this is the real reason for the pump.
1) binance bans Americans
2) huge announcements basically every day for weeks
3) reddit and twitter start to notice but still the price barely pumps
4) conebase lists it
5) immediate massive pump

If any company was already useful out of the gate, there wouldn't be much to invest in. Remember anon, we're still just banking on LINK even solving the oracle problem in the first place.
