Case Study: Punkin Center Gins
Arbol’s Area Yield Program (AYP) is Already Changing Lives and Saving Businesses. — “…the sixty-six hundred bales we ginned was just about enough to pay the light bill…with very little cotton there was no income so this (settlement from Arbol) was going to be a large chunk of the income that comes in for my bank this year.” Al Crisp first started working at a cotton gin at the age of fourteen in southern Texas at the Smith Gin COOP in Odem. He immediately became hooked on cotton. After hearing how big cotton was in West Texas, Al moved to Lubbock after finishing college to take a job with the Texas Cotton Ginners Association. Shortly after, he was managing three gins as a plant manager for Odonnell COOP. In 1999 when Al was twenty-five years old, he bought Punkin Center Gins. Today, he runs the business alongside his wife Kasha. Punkin Center Gins is a family-owned and operated cotton gin and processing facility located in Lamesa, Texas.

Arbol’s new Captive+Parametric solution will give corporations the ability to leverage Arbol’s proprietary pricing tools and climate data platform to easily implement this process.” Arbol’s streamlined climate risk solution for captives gives corporations access to Arbol’s full suite of technology and data tools, including...
Smart Contracts and Blockchain Can Help Close the Global Protection Gap, Enable Businesses to Build…
Smart Contracts and Blockchain Can Help Close the Global Protection Gap, Enable Businesses to Build Climate Resilience - By Siddhartha Jha, CEO of Arbol The great challenge of the upcoming century for enterprises and households will be how to proactively adapt and build resilience against changing and increasingly volatile and unpredictable weather patterns. For businesses that are exposed to weather and rely on a certain level of cooperation from the elements to operate normally, building climate resilience is a necessity for future success and survival. 70% of business globally are estimated to be impacted by weather, with damages from severe weather events and natural disasters rising each year. According to Aon, economic losses resulting from severe weather events totaled roughly $268 billion in 2020. Out of that total, only $97 billion in losses were insured, leaving a global protection gap of $171 billion. As governments adapt to the impacts of climate change on businesses, military operations, and essential infrastructure, policymakers are also calling on financial institutions, corporations, and hedge funds to do more to identify, disclose, and mitigate climate risks and build institutional resilience. These risks are no longer an afterthought or a matter of future concern for global communities, even those in developed and wealthier nations. The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) recently released a report s...

The reception of Chainlink among crypto enthusiasts has been positive. The ecosystem's transaction volume has surpassed $6 trillion, according to the project's official Twitter account. Because of this rise, the number of native integrations in the ecosystem rose from 12 to 15.
At this point, it appears that Chainlink may be en route to the proverbial moon. Shouldn't a price increase coincide with improved metrics? No, not quite. The on-chain stats for LINK don't look good, according to the statistics provided by Santiment.
Chainlink Market Cap Down
As of this writing, there has been significantly less progress made on the LINK chain than in previous months. The value of Chainlink's stock on the market is likewise much lower.
The market cap for LINK on October 2 was $284,961,375, a decline of 78.06% from its all-time high of $1,299,905,978 on September 29, data from CoinGecko show.
A downward trend may be forming. However, at this time, Chainlink's price is quite volatile on the intraday and 4-hour time frames.
LINK's historical volatility is rather high, ranging between 64.75 and 50.27, indicating that its price frequently fluctuates between ranges.
The Stoch RSI figures are also falling, although the relative strength index of the coin is quite constant.
Although the coin's performance indicates a downward trend, LINK HODLers may still have reason for optimism.

Chainlink (LINK) and Cronos (CRO) have recently enjoyed positive price movements, despite the market’s uncertainty over cryptocurrencies. Both tokens increased around15% from their low point 7 days back.
The recent gains show that LINK and CRO are still holding strong as they continue to rank top 50 based on market cap. However, LINK and CRO managed to maintain an upward movement amid investors' concerns about the future of cryptocurrency markets.
In fact, LINK has been one of the best-performing altcoins this week. It gained over 21% since last Thursday, reaching a high of $8.46 yesterday. This is not surprising considering the token's performance in the last 30 days. LINK was able to gain around 16% this month alone.
We can't say the same for CRONOS' 30-day performance. However, it did manage to move upwards by 16.9% during the past seven days. Its current value stands at $0.110, which is up from its lowest point of $0.105.

Reasons For LINK’s Positive Moves
A recent tweet from Santiment suggested that many investors opted to unload LINK holdings they purchased during a price drop. Yesterday, LINK reached a local high of $8.46, providing an opportunity for several market participants to benefit. The number of LINK transactions was four times higher than expected, according to the Santiment analytics team.

In an announcement on Sept. 28, Chainlink Labs stated that the new initiative allows blockchains and layer-2 networks to fast-track smart contract innovation.
This is achieved by helping to cover the operating costs (such as gas fees) of Chainlink oracle services for a period of time.
“As L1 & L2 user bases expand, fees from dApps can eventually cover the full on-chain costs of Chainlink oracle nodes - driving long-term viability across different ecosystems,” the team stated.

|Chainlink Price Spikes Above $7 While Bitcoin Sinks Below $20,000
Among other investment assets, cryptocurrency is prominent when it comes to volatility in prices, including altcoins such as Chainlink. While an uptrend matters a lot to daily traders, dipping could be favorable for accumulation for long-term investment.
The crypto market over the weekend saw slight positive progress in the prices of most tokens. The past week was downward, but this week could bring more hope.
General analysis on a 24-hour scale for most altcoins shows that last Sunday came with a commendable trend. The majority of the tokens displayed significant progress in an uptrend. Chainlink native token, LINK, was at the forefront, among others.
But the story is quite different for the primary cryptocurrency. After moving to the $19,000 region, BTC stalled on the level through the weekend.
Chainlink Leads As The Top Performer
The crypto market witnessed a positive turnaround, especially with the price performance of the altcoins. The total market cap has stalled with the outcome without making another drop. The value is currently around the $950 billion level.
LINK, the native coin of the leads as the best performer among the altcoins. The token increased by above 5% in the early hours of trading today with an approximate price of $8.

|LINK Jumps 5%: BTC Awaits its Next Move at $19K (Market Watch)
The price of bitcoin seems stuck around the $19,000 level for the past few days, and the asset has remained there now as well.
Most altcoins are also calmer on a 24-hour scale on Sunday, with Chainlink emerging as today's top performer.
Bitcoin Quiet at $19K
Although bitcoin is quite stagnant now, this wasn't the case earlier this week. The asset had jumped from $18,300 to $20,000 in a day ahead of the US Federal Reserve's latest interest rate hike, but once the increase of 75 basis points became official, it dumped by almost $2,000 once more.
This resulted in a drop to $18,100 - a new three-month low for BTC. As fear was once again settling in the markets, the bitcoin bulls stepped up and pushed the asset to over $19,000.
The next few days saw minor volatility, with the most notable increase taking the cryptocurrency to just over $19,500. However, that was short-lived, and BTC returned to around $19,000, where it's currently stuck.
Its market capitalization is still at approximately $365 billion, while its dominance over the alternative coins is back at 39%.

LINK Pops Out
The alternative coins had a volatile week of their own, but most are significantly more stable now.
Ethereum, which dumped by more than 20% after the Merge was implemented, is now slightly in the green and stands above $1,300.
Cardano is quite stagnant as well, even though the Vasil upgrade went live a few days ago. Solana and Shiba Inu are with minor increases, too.
|Chainlink (LINK) Performs Well Amidst Market Turning To Red
Price fluctuations are a daily occurrence in the crypto markets now. Since the fight against inflation began, the overall financial markets have tanked. Nowadays, asset prices swing without warning, and the continuing crypto winter only heightened the volatility.
The recent event expected to boost market recovery has been completed. Ethereum is now operating on a proof-of-stake mechanism as planned. The leading crypto Bitcoin has lost 2.95% in 24 hours. Ethereum, the center of attention during this period, has also lost 1.70% in 24 hours and 15.73% in 7 days.
But not all hope is lost. Some cryptocurrencies are rallying impressively, and the top leader in this category is Chainlink LINK.
Chainlink LINK Gains 9.03% Amid Market Pullback
Chainlink LINK is one of the cryptocurrencies currently gaining each hour on September 16. As of the time of writing, the LINK price stands at $7.71, representing an 8.19% gain in 24 hours. The price movement on September 16 has been very encouraging. LINK recorded some dips in its 24 hours trading, but not the red lines. The coin saw an intraday high of $7.759 and an intraday low of $7.4948. The next low point during the day was a dip to $7.60 before regaining its upward momentum.
If the price continues upwards, LINK might grow considerably higher before the market closes. This gain is a welcome development for the crypto as its 7 days price growth sits at 2.23%.

Despite the uncertainties about where the market would be headed, only a few have shown strength as Chainlink (LINK) remains in the spotlight. (Data from Binance)
Chainlink (LINK) Token Price Analysis On The Weekly Chart
LINK saw a decline in its price from its all-time high of $52 to around $6, with an over 70% drop from its all-time high despite having good fundamentals. The price of LINK has since struggled to have a relief bounce from its weekly low.
The price of LINK bounced off after touching a weekly low of $6, and the price rallied to $10 before suffering a setback in price as it faced rejection, and the price has continued to range in this region.
LINK's price maintained a downtrend structure with a downtrend line acting as resistance for the price of LINK, but this resistance has been broken with what seems to be a glimpse of hope, possibly to the upside of the price.
The price of LINK continues to face resistance to break higher at around $8, a break and close for LINK price in the region of $8-$9 acting as resistance; we could see the price of LINK rally to a high of $10-$12.
If LINK fails to break above these resistances, we could see the price retesting the support at $6, acting as a demand zone for LINK prices.
Weekly resistance for the price of LINK - $8-$9.

Cosmos (ATOM) continued to trade higher on Friday, as the token moved closer to a multi-month high.
ATOM/USD rose to an intraday high of $16.25 in today's session, pushing prices above a key resistance level in the process.
The aforementioned ceiling is the $16.15 level. The move comes less than 24 hours after prices were trading at a low of $14.40.
Friday's surge takes the token closer to last Friday's peak of $17.20, which was the highest point for ATOM since May 9.
As seen from the chart above, the 14-day relative strength index (RSI) is tracking at the 65.00 mark, which has historically been a level of resistance.
If cosmos were to recapture, and surge past last week's high, then the likelihood of ATOM moving above $17.20 would exponentially increase.
Like ATOM, chainlink (LINK) also rose for a third consecutive session on Friday, as bulls continued to push prices toward a key resistance level.
Following a low of $7.07 on Thursday, LINK/USD raced to an intraday high of $7.77 earlier in the day.

LINK has been noticeably bullish with its total volume growing from 200 million to as much as 516 million as observed early in September. In addition, the altcoin’s MVRV has also been surging which gives a rather positive momentum for LINK.

The bearish trend for Bitcoin keeps rolling on consecutive days. BTC has lost its anchor on the $20,000 region. Its trading activities have gotten below this level, with no sustainable hope for a positive price reversal.
Events and activities in the broader crypto market for August have not been encouraging. Prices of almost all the major crypto tokens have continued dropping. This trend has affected the overall crypto market cap keeping it below the $1 trillion level.
During the trading hours of August 26, the price of BTC seemed to reclaim slightly in its performance. It positively surged to $22,000 and hovered around that region with grace. But its gain was short-lived with the presence of the bears after the Feds meeting.

Bitcoin dipped lower to hit the $20,000 mark. This was after the token lost almost $2,000 from its value. With much difficulty, BTC tried to sustain the new level of $20K, but the ground was becoming quite unbearable. The end of August has BTC trading at around the $20,000 region despite all odds.
A southern pull finally dragged the leading cryptocurrency below the $20K level. The major factors that have affected the BTC price are the lack of significant trading volumes and extreme volatility. There have not been many recorded activities on the network. This means that trading transactions drastically dropped from the beginning of September.
With the trend of activities for Bitcoin, its market cap currently fall bel...

The crypto market hasn’t been propitious since the Fed’s interest rate hikes. As the fight against inflation becomes more aggressive, the financial markets bleed. Many coins are trading in the reds instead of recovering as investors expected.
Bitcoin and other altcoins have lost their last week's gains and are now struggling to remain at expected levels. The dominance metric indicates the performance of BTC relative to altcoins. When the figure is high, it means bitcoin has outperformed the others and vice versa.

From August 27 till September 2, BTC prices struggled to maintain $20K. There have been so...

|Chainlink Price Surges As The Team Releases New Staking Roadmap
Following the release of its staking roadmap, Chainlink’s LINK native token performed quite impressively. First, it released its long-awaited roadmap revealing various phases it will go through. Recently via blog post on its official website, Chainlink cited “Chainlink Economics 2.0.”
The blog highlighted the aim to implement crypto staking to scale the network. While doing so, the post emphasized that the data oracle is planning to collaborate and accept other blockchains to offer “growth and security.”
New Staking Roadmap Dubbed Chainlink Economics 2.0
Staking the LINK token has been a high-demand feature for some years now. This is due to Chainlink being the biggest data oracle provider in the deFi ecosystem.
Chainlink even Tweeted about its preparations for implementing the ‘Chainlink Economics,’ referenced in its official blog post.
The announcement on its blog explained that the main vision of providing staking is to enable both community members and node operators to boost the platform’s user assurances and security guarantees of the oracle services. All the same, the ecosystem will flourish as the user assurances and crypto-economic security increase.
Besides that, staking rewards users for providing valuable data. It also enables the platform to introduce a penalty mechanism designed for underperforming nodes which don’t provide accurate oracle reports or deliver them to their destinations at the right time.
|Biggest Movers: LINK Remains Near 1-Month High, as ADA Extends Bull Run
LINK remained close to a one-month high earlier in today's session, as crypto markets shook off some of Tuesday's volatile moves. Although price volatility remained, bulls returned to show force, with ADA continuing to climb higher this week.
LINK was trading around a one-month high during today's session, following a recent four-day bull run.
The run commenced near a support level of $6.70, and took price above its recent resistance point of $8.80.
As a result of this move, LINK/USD rose to a four-week high of $8.95 late on Tuesday, with prices peaking at $8.86 so far in today's session.
Looking at the chart, the move also comes as the 10- and 25-day moving averages crossed, which is the first time this has happened since March 20.
In addition, the 14-day Relative Strength Index (RSI) is hovering around 56.21, which is its highest reading in over two months.
So far, LINK bulls have relaxed following earlier highs, likely as bears re-entered at resistance. The question now is whether we will see a breakout this week.
Whilst LINK has risen for four straight sessions, ADA climbed for a fifth-consecutive day on Wednesday, as prices broke through resistance.
ADA/USD rallied to an intraday peak of $0.6537 earlier today, which is its highest point since May 31.
Today's move saw prices push past the ceiling of $0.6460, hitting a nine-day high as a result of this surge.

|Chainlink Staking Roadmap Update Pushes LINK Prices up 12%
On June 7, the Chainlink team published its 'Long-Term Goals, Roadmap, and Initial Implementation,' outlining the following stages for the data oracle blockchain project.
The blog post referenced 'Chainlink Economics 2.0' with a focus on staking as part of the endeavor to scale the system and integrate more blockchain networks.
Staking is a mechanism that brings a new layer of 'cryptoeconomic security' to Chainlink, it explained. The same is true for most proof-of-stake blockchains that reward stakers for helping to secure the network.
Staking marks the start of #Chainlink Economics 2.0, a new era for the long-term security and sustainability of oracle networks.
In this update, we define the long-term goals, roadmap, and initial implementation of staking in the Chainlink Network.https://t.co/WJkoUzPA0i
— Chainlink (@chainlink) June 7, 2022
Focus on Staking
There are four long-term goals for Chainlink, which launched oracles on Solana earlier this month, staking but the underlying principle was explained as follows:
“The staking of LINK in turn enhances the ability for nodes to receive jobs and earn corresponding fees within the Chainlink Network.”
The primary goal of staking is to increase the security and user assurances of Chainlink oracle services. LINK tokens are locked up as a 'service-level guarantee around network performance,' it explained. Furthermore, incentives and penalties such as slashing enable Chainlink nodes to consistently generate accura...
|Chainlink Brings Price Feed Data to Solana for Defi Support
Chainlink – a blockchain oracle platform – recently announced that its price feed technology has been launched on the Solana network. This information will help Solana defi developers use live price information for various financial services.
The oracle platform has announced that seven price feeds will be made available for Solana developers. These include BTC/USD, ETH/USD, and USDC/USD. More price feeds will be made available at later stages of the integration.
Multiple projects have already committed to using Chainlink’s tools, including lending protocol Apricot Finance, and yield farming aggregators Francium and Tulip.
Solana co-founder Anatoly Yakovenko believes the integration will be a boon to Solana’s dapp developers: “Chainlink’s launch on Solana will give defi developers access to the most widely used oracles in blockchain,” he said.
An “oracle” is an entity that bridges blockchain-based applications with external systems, providing data from the real world. Chainalysis, for example, provides an oracle for smart contracts to identify sanctioned blockchain addresses.
Price oracles are helpful defi tools, as they help determine appropriate lending and collateral rates between different cryptocurrencies.
A defi protocol on Terra Classic was recently exploited because its price oracle was reporting incorrect data for LUNC. This allowed the exploiter to seize $2 million in funds despite posting minimal collateral int...

ZIL was down by as much as 10% to start the week, as prices continued to fall following recent highs. LINK was also predominantly red on Monday, as it marginally fell below the long-term support level, hitting a one-month low in the process.
ZIL was one of the biggest crypto movers on Monday, as prices dropped by as much as 10% to start the week.
After trading at a high of $0.1154 on Easter Sunday, ZIL/USD raced to an intraday bottom of $0.1015 during Monday's session.
Today's drop sees ZIL fall for the fourth consecutive session, pushing prices below its recent support level in the process.
This floor of $0.1030 gave way for the first time this month, with prices falling to their lowest level since late March.
In addition to this, the 14-day RSI also saw its own floor broken, as price strength continued to track in oversold territory.
Following a high of $0.2300 to start the month, ZIL has seen consistent falls in price, which now means prices are over 50% lower so far in April.
Similar to ZIL, LINK has fallen for much of April thus far, as prices moved away from multi-month highs.
As of writing, LINK/USD slipped to a bottom of $13.21, following a high of $14.52 during yesterday's session.
This move sees LINK trading around 8% lower to start the week, and has led to a breakout of the $13.50 price floor.
