‘Where are the LINK Marines?’ Chainlink beats Bitcoin with 610% YTD returns

Bitcoin (BTC) may be down less from its all-time highs than any other cryptocurrency, but 2020 has so far been the year of Chainlink (LINK).

In the latest edition of its Weekly Insights report on Oct. 26, The TIE noted that Chainlink has outperformed every other cryptocurrency with year-to-date returns of over 600%.

Bitcoin down least vs. all-time highs

Comparing altcoin performance, the report also highlighted Cardano (ADA) with 224% returns, Ether (ETH) on 217% and Monero (XMR) on 182%.

The numbers provide a timely counterpoint for cryptocurrency spectators as attention remains broadly focused on Bitcoin and its recent gains, which topped out at $13,370 over the weekend.

Enthusiasm around a rerun of the so-called “altseasons” from previous years has also waned, with Cointelegraph Markets analyst Michaël van de Poppe warning that Ether may not be set to copy Bitcoin’s successes this time around.
