Popular crypto analyst Aaron Arnold recently looked at two crypto projects with “massive potential” in this month. 

In a video released on December 7, Arnold, who is a co-host of the popular Altcoin Daily show, told the YouTube channel’s over 1.16 million subscribers that $LINK, the native token of Ethereum-powered dencentralized oracle network Chainlink, is one of this month’s top picks.  

Arnold said that he considers CEO Eric Schmidt joining Chainlink Labs as a strategic advisor as bullish news.

As reported by The Daily Hodl, he said: 

“According to a Tuesday announcement, Chainlink said that Schmidt would guide the firm’s scaling strategy in its use of oracle networks to trigger smart contracts […]

This is a huge get, a highly connected guy, a huge get for Chainlink Labs.”

The Altcoin Daily host was also bullish on $XTZ, saying the layer one blockchain was recently chosen by game studio Ubisoft — which has developed Assassin Creed and many other top games — to launch its new in-game line of non-fungible tokens (NFTs). 

The company cited a commitment to building a “true metaverse” and said Tezos would help overcome blockchain’s “early-form limitations for gaming,” including scaling and energy consumption. 

Arnold called Ubisoft’s endorsement a “huge milestone” for crypto and a “big win” for Tezo’s adoption and price potential:

“Mainstream gaming giant Ubisoft becomes the first major gaming company to launch in-game NFTs. This is a huge milestone for crypto, for NFTs and gaming in general…

Now the gaming giant will actually implement NFTs within one of its major franchises in a new initiative that runs on Tezos. This is huge for adoption and a big win for Tezos.

According to data by CryptoCompare, currently (as of 20:55 UTC on December 10), $LINK and $XTZ are trading around $19.36 (-6.20%) and $4.634 (-6.29%) respectively.
