Bitcoin Trader “Teddy” states that Bitcoin has liquidated all short and long positions due to the minimal up and down movements and therefore there have been no significant price movements over the weekend. Nevertheless, he warns his followers to be careful, because especially in such situations, many traders become careless and experience bad surprises, if no corresponding stop losses were set.

On July 8, 2020 Chainlink entered into a cooperation with crypto lender Nexo, whose platform, according to official statements, has more than 800,000 users who will implement the Oracle solution presented by Chainlink. Chainlink founder Sergey Nazarov explains:
We are excited to bring Chainlink’s secure and reliable Oracle solutions to Nexo’s popular credit platform so that users can independently verify the interest and collateralization rates they should receive in the block chain.
Chainlink has also partnered with well-known companies such as Hedera Hashgraph and Matic Network to promote the adoption of Chainlink Oracles. Former NBA player Kris Humphries explains that since April 7th this year, Chainlink has announced more than 45 partnerships to date and the price has risen more than 145% in a row. In his opinion this is an impressive achievement.
Since my first tweet about #ChainLink on Apr 7, 45+ additional partnerships have been announced, reference data increased from 29 to 31, and price increased by 145%. This is a long-term play, still these short-term wins are impressive.#Link #BTC #ETH
