Interestingly, an on-chain event surrounding the ongoing trial of [Sam-Bankman Fried](https://www.fxempire.com/news/article/ftx-trial-latest-sam-bankman-fried-points-fingers-at-binance-1380647), the CEO and Founder of the defunct exchange was the precursor for the Solana price rally this week.
A Sept 11 court filing showed that FTX held $1.2 worth of SOL token on its books.This raised fears among many [Solana investors](https://www.fxempire.com/forecasts/article/solana-price-flashes-green-signals-as-ftx-estate-stakes-122m-sol-tokens-1381063) that SOL prices could tank in the process of an imminent liquidation to repay creditors and customers.But on October 14, FTX estate administrator was [spotted ](https://twitter.com/solanobahn/status/1713011350568616411)taking 5.5 million SOL worth approximately $122 million.That transaction shored up confidence across the Solana ecosystem.[StakingRewards.com](https://www.stakingrewards.com/asset/solana?category=pos&sort=staked_tokens&timeframe=30d&order=desc&verifiedFirst=true) This graph above shows that following the significant spike in staked Solana on October 14, other investors took the baton.By October 16, total Solana staked reached a 90-day peak of 404.4 million SOL.The resulting drop in market supply and bullish sentiment in the broader crypto market instantly sent SOL into 35% price rally to the $30.4 by the end of the week.Notably, since Solana his the $30 mark, some investors have started unstaking their SOL coins, presumably to book profits.
In fact, since Solana claimed $30 on Friday, holders have been unstaking for two days straight.Hence, SOL price could lose the $25 psychological support next week if the staking traction does not improve.Chainlink (LINK) Price Rally Enters New Gear as Whales Increase Demand Chainlink (LINK) is another mega-cap altcoin that delivered major profits for crypto investors last week.Price charts showed that LINK price bounced 30% from $7.2 to $10.11 over the past week.And notably this is the first time Chainlink has reclaimed the $10 milestone since the TerraUST crash back in May 2022.
On-chain data shows that the bullish trading activity of crypto whale investors is the major Driving factor behind the ongoing Chainlink price rally.[IntoTheBlock](https://app.intotheblock.com/coin/LINK/deep-dive?group=financials&chart=largeTransactions) As depicted in the IntoTheBlock chart above, the [Chainlink](https://www.fxempire.com/crypto/chainlink) network recorded 246 Whale Transactions on October 21.Whale Transaction count metric presents the total number of individual transactions that exceed $100,000 in value during a given trading period.Notably, the 246 transactions recorded on Saturday is highest level of whale demand for the LINK token since July 21 2023.
And curiously, LINK price spiked 23% at the time.With the positive sentiment swirling around the crypto market, Chainlink bulls can push for another wave of double-digit gains this week, especially if the whales keep buying.If history repeats itself, Chainlink investors could double their profits in the coming week.Bitcoin SV Led the Mega-Cap Crypto Markets with 60% Gains [BitcoinSV](https://www.fxempire.com/crypto/bitcoin-cash-sv) (BSV) was launched in 2018 as a more scalable hard fork of the Bitcoin Cash ( [BCH](https://www.fxempire.com/crypto/bitcoin-cash)) blockchain.Last week, Bitrue, a widely-used centralized crypto exchange platform, [announced](https://twitter.com/BitrueOfficial/status/1714902993831915832) the inclusion of BSV/USDT pair in Spot market offerings.
