MATIC wipes out losses with price rally

MATIC, the native token of Ethereum’s Layer 2 scaling solution recovered from its losses over the past week. The token yielded double-digit gains for holders, climbing past the $0.6261 level at the time of writing.

The Polygon network responded to the US SEC’s labeling of MATIC as a security. The Ethereum scaling solution highlighted that the development and deployment of the project was done outside the US. MATIC is focused on network security and did not target US-based users at any point in time of its development. 

Polygon considers the non-US market as the larger one in terms of adoption and utility of its token and the team is confident that the upcoming tech announcements will catalyze a recovery in the token. 

MATIC price noted double-digit gains, beginning recovery

MATIC price yielded 30.6% losses over the past week, in response to the SEC labeling the asset as a security. The Polygon network team addressed the SEC’s allegations and offered a clarification in a tweet. This catalyzed a recovery in the asset.

MATIC price climbed from $0.5697 on Saturday to $0.6321, at the time of writing. The altcoin rallied nearly 10% overnight, recovering from its week-long slump.
