The announcement also stated that this could be a significant move with regards to the upcoming v1.0 production release. But the question remains — did MATIC react positively to this? These metrics could offer some clarity.
To cheer or not to cheer?
Data intelligence platform Santiment showed that the amount of MATIC holders witnessed a rise since December 2022. The metric, at the time of writing, stood at 42.8 million. Furthermore, a look at the daily on-chain transactions in loss (orange) stood at 16.6 million.
However, upon considering the daily on-chain transactions in profit (purple), it could be stated that addresses in profit outnumber the addresses in a loss. Although the difference between the two wasn’t extreme, most sellers stood in a profitable position at the time of writing.
Furthermore, data from coinglass came bearing some good news. At the time of writing, MATIC’s long/short ratio stood at 1.0886. At press time, 52.19% of traders held long positions as compared to the 47.81% of traders that held short positions. This could be considered a bullish sign for the altcoin.
Have no fear when MATIC is here…
At press time, MATIC’s daily chart could be seen in recovery mode. This was because the Relative Strength Index (RSI), although below the neutral line, was seen in an ascending position. The RSI stood at 40.50.

Furthermore, the Chaikin Money Flow (CMF) could also be seen moving in an upward direction which could be taken as a buy signal. A look at MATIC’s Awesome Oscillator (AO) also indicated that, at press time, MATIC was operating in the green. This could be taken as a sign that the bulls were trying to gain control of the market.
