Chainlink powers DeFi's growth through oracles 

Chainlink plans to power Ethereum network infrastructure through Gitcoin Grants that fund valuable projects. Chainlink's oracles have powered several DeFi projects, driving the protocols' total value locked (TVL). Avalanche protocol's TVL has increased over 88 times since July 2021 through the use of Chainlink's oracles. 

Avalanche protocol was in the hyper-growth phase throughout 2021. Powered by Chainlink oracles, other DeFi applications, Aave protocol, Trader Joe (DEX), and Benqi Finance together noted a spike in TVL.

Chainlink continues to make strides in the DeFi ecosystem. The network announced the following partnerships earlier today- Kephi Gallery's NFT marketplace, Project Oasis on the Binance Smart Chain ecosystem, Solipay and Trava Finance. 

The DeFi projects have access to real-time global market prices for loan issuance, liquidation, location data and fair and transparent sales of NFTs. Chainlink's utility continues to increase with the rise in the number of DeFi applications utilizing oracles. 

Chainlink whales are struggling to push the altcoin's price higher. Cryptocurrency analysts at the YouTube channel "VisionPulse Trades" are of the opinion that Chainlink price is currently at a make-or-break point. It may drop to $22 before resuming climb to $45.
