Furthermore, the trend reversal was strong enough to shift the asset’s trend from bearish to bullish. According to the Relative Strength Index (RSI), MATIC crossed the neutral line. A weak bullish sentiment was also indicated by the Moving Average Convergence Divergence (MACD), which revealed that it had shifted to the upside.

The volume metric has also been increasing with the recent price increase. The volume was above 979 million as of the time of writing and was getting close to one billion.

Observing the trend of the flow

The Exchange NetFlow of Polygon provided additional evidence of the strength of the present bullish trend. As per CryptoQuant, since the advent of the price increase, there have been large inflows and outflows into exchanges. With over 31 million MATICs leaving exchanges as of this writing, the outflow was the overwhelming trend.

Introducing the Polygon domain

On 14 March, Polygon announced that it would partner with Unstoppable Web to introduce the Polygon domain. In addition to enabling users to create a portable identity across over 750 dApps, games, and metaverses, Polygon domains enable the creation of a digital identity. The Polygon domain could benefit the network in a manner akin to the Ethereum Name Service (ENS).

Given the outflow volume and Polygon’s bullish tendency, a further increase may be in store.
