  • MATIC’s market cap surged by 31% in Q1, thanks to the bull market. 
  • Metric suggested that MATIC was overvalued, hinting at a price correction.

Polygon [MATIC] has been witnessing a massive surge in network usage over the last few weeks. In fact, one of its key metrics recently reached an all-time high.

In the meantime, Polygon’s Q1 report was released, pointing out its performance on multiple fronts. 

Polygon reaches yet another milestone

Today In Polygon, a popular X (formerly Twitter) handle that posts updates related to the blockchain, recently posted a tweet highlighting a key development.

The tweet mentioned that Polygon PoS’s daily active addresses reached an all-time high as the number crossed 1.3 million.

Over the last few weeks, the blockchain’s active addresses have grown sharply and have been hitting new ATHs, which reflects a clear rise in usage and adoption.

However, it was surprising to note that despite the rise in daily active addresses, the blockchain’s number of transactions dropped last month.

A look at Polygon’s Q1 performance

Meanwhile, Coin98 Analytics, a data analytics platform, posted Polygon’s Q1 report, mentioning its performance on different fronts.

As per the tweet, in the first quarter of this year, MATIC’s trading volume increased by $6.1B quarter-on-quarter (QoQ).

Additionally, its number of holders also grew by 13.3% QoQ and 84.9% year-on-year (YoY). The reason behind the hike in accumulation could be because of its bullish price action.

In Q1, the token’s circulating market capitalization surged by over 31%.

However, things in terms of captured value did not look good. The blockchain’s fees touched $6.83 million in Q1, which was a 19% drop from the previous quarter.

This had a direct impact on its revenue, which touched $2.7 million, a whopping 45% drop from the previous quarter. Additionally, Polygon’s earnings plummeted by 33% in Q1 2024.

MATIC investors should also be cautious in Q2, as the token’s P/F ratio increased by 21%. A hike in the metric means that MATIC was overvalued, hinting at a possible price drop in the coming weeks. 

What to expect from MATIC

According to CoinMarketCap, MATIC was down by more than 9% in the last seven days. At the time of writing, it was trading at $0.903 with a market cap of over $8.9 billion, making it the 17th largest crypto.
