Average coin age measures the average holding time of all coins in circulation since the last transaction. An increase in this indicator could be a bullish sign, as it suggests that funds are being held for longer.
This shows that despite the recent downtrend, long-term network players remain confident in LINK’s long-term price prospects and utility.

The chart below shows that investors placed buy orders for close to 3.39 million LINK, while active sell orders currently stand at 1.7 million tokens.

LINK Price Prediction: PBulls can hold support at $6.50
According to breakeven price data provided by IntoTheBlock, bulls bought 105 million LINK at an average price of $7, which is expected to be enough to defend the $6.95 area.
However, some of the 32,500 addresses that bought 105 million LINK at the top price of $7.13 may try to prevent the breakout when the situation stabilizes.
Once LINK breaks above this resistance, it will head towards its year-to-date high of $8.63. However, the 67,000 holders who bought 89 million coins around this price zone may pose another obstacle.

Conversely, bears can invalidate the bullish stance as LINK loses support at $6.95. If that happens, holders should brace for the risk of a further drop to $6.11. Here, 80,000 addresses bought 553 million tokens, which can be significantly supported.
