All okay MATIC?

One reason stated for the same was Polygon’s growth in the social sector. As can be seen from the image below, Polygon and MATIC appeared on Santiment’s social trends list. This indicated a high interest in MATIC from the crypto community.

To back this up, data from LunarCrush also revealed that over the past week, the number of social mentions for Polygon had grown by 93.45%. Additionally, the number of social engagements also increased by 109% in the last week.

On a positive note

The weighted sentiment around MATIC remained as positive as around Polygon. Additionally, the weighted sentiment around the latter grew tremendously over the past few weeks. However, the transaction count on the Polygon network declined over a similar time period. This pointed towards the conclusion that the number of transactions being made on the network had reduced. 

Although the transaction count had declined, Santiment reported that Polygon’s network growth was the highest it had been in months. This implied that the number of new addresses that transferred  the MATIC token for the first time had increased.
