Its market capitalization presently stands at $4.82 billion, only trailing the likes of Bitcoin, Ethereum, Tether and Ripple.

Quick fact: Chainlink is a blockchain that is designed to bridge the space between blockchain technology-based smart contracts (created by ETH), and other user programs. It has a circulating supply of 390 million coins and a max supply of 1 billion coins.
