Polygon 2.0 and this new update!
Polygon, in a recent tweet, revealed information about its new Polygon 2.0. As per the tweet, the new update is designed to provide unlimited scalability and unified liquidity, thus transforming Polygon into the value layer of the Internet.
For starters, the Polygon 2.0 architecture consists of four protocol layers, each enabling an important process within the network: staking, interop, execution, and proving. It was interesting to note that in the seven days itself, Polygon’s staking space witnessed growth.
As per Staking Rewards, the number of MATIC stakers have increased over the last seven days.
Change on the cards for MATIC
Unlike the blockchain’s staking space, MATIC’s price registered a decline over the last few days. As per CoinMarketCap, MATIC was down by more than 4% in the last seven days. Moreover, its daily chart was also painted red. At press time, it was trading at $0.632 with a market capitalization of over $5.8 billion, making it the 13th largest crypto.
A look at Coinglass’ data revealed that MATIC’s open interest was declining. A drop in the metric means that the on-going price trend might soon come to an end. This suggested that MATIC’s bearish price trend could change soon. The token’s Market Value to Realized Value (MVRV) also improved substantially, which was a bullish signal.

A look at Polygon’s daily chart portrayed an ambiguous picture, as a number of metrics were bullish. However, the rest portrayed a different picture altogether. For instance, the Relative Strength Index (RSI) registered an uptick.
MATIC’s Moving Average Convergence Divergence (MACD) also displayed a bullish advantage in the market. Nonetheless, the gap between the 20-day Exponential Moving Average (EMA) and the 55-day EMA was increasing. This did paint a concerning picture for the token’s price.
