  • MATIC price is at a risk of a 15% decline if its continues its downtrend, with a target of $0.89. 

Ethereum network’s largest scaling solution’s native token has yielded nearly 20% losses for holders over the past week. MATIC price nosedived below a critical support level on Friday, the asset needs to make a comeback above $1.04 or it could face a mass sell-off from 21,530 addresses.

MATIC price loses critical support at $1.04

Based on data from crypto intelligence tracker IntoTheBlock, nearly 21,530 wallet addresses accumulated 4.21 billion MATIC tokens above the $1.04 level. This is therefore a critical support level for Polygon network’s native token. 

Giving in to the recent uncertainty and correction in the crypto market, MATIC price dropped nearly 20% over the past week. MATIC yielded 6.5% losses since Thursday and the token is trading close to its weekly low of $0.94, based on data from CoinGecko. 

If MATIC fails to reclaim key support at $1.04, the altcoin could crumble under mounting selling pressure from 21,530 addresses shedding their token holdings.

The Ethereum scaling token is in need of an upswing to prevent the wallet addresses from panic selling a large portion of their 4.21 billion MATIC token holdings acquired between $0.99 and $1.07. 

If the selling pressure on MATIC rises and the asset’s price continues to decline, it could drop to next support at $0.89, a drawdown of nearly 15%. Nearly 50,000 wallet addresses scooped up 1.09 billion MATIC tokens between the $0.89 and $0.97 level, as seen in the chart above.
