Apart from that, another major development was Polygon’s partnership with Google Cloud. Google announced that it has become a validator for the Polygon blockchain.
Apart from that, the blockchain’s rollup, zkEVM, also reached new highs as its total transactions exceeded 6 million. The rollup’s unique addresses also exceeded the 450k mark last week.
How is MATIC faring?
The last week was also profitable for MATIC as the token registered gains. The token’s price went up by more than 4% over the last seven days. However, things took a U-turn in the last 24 hours as its price went down.
According to CoinMarketCap, MATIC’s price dropped by over 2% yesterday. At the time of writing, it was trading at $0.5634 with a market capitalization of over $5.2 billion.
A look at the token’s metrics revealed what went wrong over the last few days. It was surprising to note that despite the recent price drop, the token’s MVRV ratio was still relatively up last week. Its social volume also remained high, reflecting the token’s popularity.

However, things had the potential to worsen for MATIC. A look at the token’s daily chart showed that its Chaikin Money Flow (CMF) registered a steep decline as it went way under the neutral mark.
Its Relative Strength Index (RSI) also registered a slight downtick as it also went near the neutral mark. However, MATIC’s MACD remained in the buyers’ favor as it displayed a bullish crossover.
