LINK, the network’s token, has seen a meteoric rise over the last year and is now up more than 700%, fueled by a flurry of high profile partnership announcements. Perhaps most notable being the partnership with Google, where ChainLink plans to place BigQuery data on the blockchain using a ChainLink oracle smart contract.
Given the hype around ChainLink, it comes at no surprise that investors are looking to add LINK exposure to their altcoin portfolios, even at its current valuation just over $920 million.
Due to the current regulatory pressure, investors in the United States have access to fewer and fewer places to trade altcoins. Luckily, LINK has apparently passed the initial regulatory sniff test and is available on a few major platforms:
Coinbase and Coinbase Pro: LINK hit its all-time highs on the back of the Coinbase listing announcement in June. The altcoin is now available on the retail platform as well as Coinbase Pro. In September, LINK became available to investors based out of New York.
Kraken: LINK was added to Kraken at the end of September with four trading pairs including EUR and USD.
Binance.US: LINK recently became the first altcoin addition — along with Ravencoin (RVN) — to the American Binance platform following its September launch. LINK is now available with direct USD trading.
Given that LINK is now available on three of the most reputable US crypto exchanges, it’s fair to say that it will be tradable for American investors well into the future.
