How THETA Entered Top-Ten Crypto List Unsettling Chainlink (LINK)?

Chinese journalist, who goes by the name Wu Blockchain, explains the reason behind it. Wu writes that the THETA team has huge monetary control over the cryptocurrency and has been largely sought after by Koreans. He further adds:

The Chinese journalist goes on to add that THETA has been “irrationally” popular in South Korea. Crypto exchange Bithumb from South Korea has huge volume for the THETA/KRW trading pair.
