MATIC is also benefiting from this scenario

MATIC painted its charts green recently, thanks to the positive market sentiment. As per CoinMarketCap, MATIC’s price increased by nearly 5% in the last 24 hours. At press time, it was trading at $1.17 with a market capitalization of over $10.19 billion.

The good days might continue further. Consider this- MATIC’s net deposits on exchanges were low compared to the 7-day average, suggesting less selling pressure.

Weighted sentiments remained relatively high, indicating increased confidence among investors in MATIC. In addition to that, MATIC’s MVRV Ratio increased considerably over the last few days, which was again a bullish signal.
