  • Polygon has seen the highest number of active POS addresses in its history.
  • MATIC has reclaimed the $1 price zone.

The Polygon [MATIC] network recently reached a milestone in the number of addresses. With this increase, did the number of transactions and MATIC respond accordingly?

Polygon active addresses set a new record

An analysis of the Polygon scanner showed a recent surge in address activity on the network.

The observed data showed that the number of active Proof-of-Stake (POS) addresses was over 1 million on 23rd February. This metric reflects the daily count of unique addresses actively engaging on the network as senders or receivers.

Significantly, the figure recorded on 23rd February marked the highest number of active addresses witnessed on the network.

Also, upon analyzing the daily transaction chart, it was noted that there was a recent uptick in transactions on the network.

However, this increase did not reach the peak observed in the number of active addresses. At the time of this writing, the daily transaction count was over 4.2 million.

Polygon TVL sees slight increase, but volume remains the same

An examination of the Polygon volume showed that similar to the daily transaction number, there was no corresponding response to the surge in active addresses.

The chart on DefiLlama revealed that the volume in the last 24 hours was about $138 million. This volume did not reach the highest levels in recent weeks, as it exceeded $300 million in January. 

However, there was a slight increase in the Total Value Locked (TVL). The analysis showed that the TVL began to increase slightly around 8th February, rising from about $850 million to about $870 million at the time of this writing.

Nevertheless, the increase in TVL was primarily attributed to the rise in the value of MATIC and other tokens on the network.

MATIC having a mixed week

Polygon experienced a rise to $1 for the first time since December on 20th February, with an increase of around 2.5%. However, a subsequent decline of over 6% the following day brought its price back below the $1 range.

Despite an attempted recovery of over 4% on 22nd February that pushed the price close to $1, it only reached around $0.9.

Nevertheless, at the time of this writing, it had climbed back into the $1 price range, showing an increase of over 2%.

Throughout the fluctuations, MATIC maintained its trend above 60 on its Relative Strength Index. At the time of this writing, it was close to 65, indicating its strong price trend.
