DappRadar also revealed that the gaming space contributed a lot to Polygon’s growth. This was evident from the fact that among the top five dApps in the Polygon ecosystem, three of them were from the gaming space in the last 24 hours. The gaming apps were Pandra War, Sunflower Land, and Planet IX.

Interestingly, MATIC also announced a partnership in the recent past that could fuel further growth of the gaming ecosystem over the coming months. Immutable zkEVM testnet recently went live, adding new functionalities.

Users who choose Immutable zkEVM will receive all the advantages of  zkEVMs in addition to Immutable’s vertically integrated gaming-specific features designed to make building web3 games simple.

Sandeep Nailwal, co-founder of Polygon, also tweeted about how this partnership was important for Polygon 2.0. As per the tweet, these testnets mark a huge step forward for Polygon 2.0’s vision.

MATIC continues its struggle

While the blockchain’s gaming ecosystem flourished, its native token, MATIC, couldn’t turn its chart green. As per CoinMarketCap, MATIC was down by more than 14% in the last seven days. At press time, it was trading at $0.5808 with a market capitalization of over $5.4 billion. 

A look at Polygon’s metrics suggested that the downtrend might continue. The token’s exchange reserve was increasing. An uptick in the metric means that selling pressure on MATIC remained high. Its active addresses and transfer volume also dropped, which looked bearish.
