Zeus Capital LLP accuses Chainlink of price manipulation, LINK/USD continues to go up

  • Asset management firm Zeus Capital LLP has accused Chainlink of artificially pumping the coin’s price.
  • The firm has claimed that it has all evidence related to the alleged price manipulation. 
  • Zeus Capital Limited, an investment bank, has clarified that it has no affiliation with Zeus Capital LLP.

Zeus Capital LLP, an asset management company, has publicly accused Chainlink of artificially pumping the price of its coin. The firm has also published a report that says that Chainlink has been making fake partnerships and using them as a marketing scheme. The asset management firm stated that Chainlink is created to enrich the founders. 

Zeus Capital LLP took to Twitter to say that they have "unlimited resources to go after LINK" and documented everything related to the alleged price manipulation. 

The screenshots included in the tweet claim that “LINK marines" pumped the coin to liquidate Zeus Capital's short position. 

A few days back, Zeus Capital Limited, a popular investment bank, published a post in which it clarified that it has nothing to do with the Zeus Capital LLP that is accusing and threatening Chainlink of bad acting. An excerpt from the post reads: 

For the avoidance of doubt we would like to state that Zeus Capital Limited has not produced or published research on this subject and has no relationship or affiliation with Zeus Capital LLP whatsoever.

Zeus Capital LLP also published an interview with an anonymous “industry professional who held a senior position at Callisto Network.” This person said that after Callisto offered to enter a partnership with Chainlink, the latter immediately agreed and published a press release to that effect. However, the person has claimed that no actual collaboration took place and Callisto did not integrate Chainlink oracles, according to a CryptoComes report.
