Dear @0xPolygon fam, it is my pleasure to inform you that our ecosystem grew from 3,000 to 7,000 apps in only 3 months!— Mihailo Bjelic (@MihailoBjelic) January 27, 2022
What's even crazier is that we are really/honestly just getting started, both in terms of tech and adoption .
Let's bring the world to Ethereum! https://t.co/qBNqljD1wJ
During the recent crypto bloodbath, large wallet investors accumulated $1.6 million worth of MATIC tokens. The accumulation has fueled a bullish narrative for the Ethereum scaling solution. Kevin O’Leary, a celebrity investor and entrepreneur, recently revealed his interest in MATIC.
O’Leary was quoted as saying:
What economic value are they creating? In the case of Polygon, aggregating transactions to reduce gas fees on Ethereum is a smart idea. You have an economic reason to pursue that. You save money. Transaction fees are less. I think the potential of that is large.
VanEck, a financial institution with $82 billion worth of assets under management, has launched a multi-cryptocurrency fund with seven cryptos. Alongside MATIC, the fund includes Bitcoin, Ethereum, Polkadot, Solana, Tron and Avalanche.
Analysts have evaluated the MATIC price trend and predicted a continuation of the uptrend. @WalterCripto, a pseudonymous analyst and trader, believes that the MATIC price trend shows short-term bullish momentum.
FXStreet analysts believe that the MATIC relief rally could send the altcoin’s price to $2.
