If the current price is higher, then the asset is "in money", if it is lower, then it is "out of money", and if it is the same, it is "for money". According to the news company IntoTheBlock, the entire offer of the LINK token is currently "in the money". For information, about 90% of the supply of bitcoins (BTC) is currently in the money, but only 47% of litecoins (LTC).
