Polygon’s network activity sinks
Artemis’ data revealed that after spiking on 14 June 2023, the number of daily active addresses on Polygon registered a downtick. Similarly, the decline in active addresses also resulted in a plummet in the daily number of transactions, which looked concerning.
Apart from network activity, the blockchain’s value also registered a decline over the last few days. This was evident from the drop in its TVL. However, it was optimistic to see the metric showing signs of recovery as the chart went up since 16 June.
MATIC to soon enter the top 10 club again?
While Polygon made back-to-back announcements, MATIC enjoyed the bull market as its price surged. Apart from the bullish market, another possible reason behind MATIC’s price surge could be the drop in its open interest. Usually, when open interest sinks, the on-going price trend changes.
According to CoinMarketCap, MATIC’s price increased by more than 7% in the last 24 hours. At press time, it was trading at $0.6957 with a market capitalization of over $6.4 billion, making it the 11th largest crypto.
However, if the current price trend continues, the possibility of MATIC reentering the top 10 list seems quite likely to happen.
