Polygon (MATIC)

Polygon MATIC is slowly evolving as a platform to test NFT and other trades. Altcoins have been having a gala time and the latest to win the laurels is Polygon’s native crypto, MATIC. In the last 24 hours, the MATIC price is up 15%, moving way past $1.

As of press time, Polygon MATIC was changing hands at $1.15, up by 23.86%. MATIC had reached a 24 hrs. high of $1.17 and a low of $0.9267. The altcoin had a market cap of Market Cap $10,044,746,627, up 23.47%, and a circulating volume of Market Cap $10,044,746,627, up 23.47% in the last 24 hrs.

The Polygon MATIC surge is also a result of substantial whale activities. As per On-chain data provider Santiment, November 3 saw the most significant single transactions, which amounted to a whopping $100K.

Santiment reported:

Do you believe in $MATIC? Today marked the highest amount of $100k+ whale transactions since February for the 11th ranked market cap #crypto asset. A mid-October spike in #Polygon holdings by 10m+ $MATIC whales may have foreshadowed this.

However, the Matic Boom comes in the background of several important happenings which are taking place in the Polygon Ecosystem.
