Notwithstanding the recent market drop, certain cryptocurrencies have done quite well. Polygon’s MATIC, together with Terra’s LUNA, is one notable altcoin that has lately made headlines. The MATIC price has risen to a fresh all-time high of $2.54, with an additional 12% increase in the previous 24 hours.
MATIC’s resistance to the larger crypto market downturn demonstrates that the Ethereum Layer-2 scaling solution has lately gained widespread adoption. The MATIC price has risen by 25% in the previous seven days, defying the overall market trend. This current MATIC result comes against the context of a few of Polygon’s latest important developments.
