Polygon Price Soars: A Closer Look
Polygon (MATIC) is soaring today, with a price gain of 11.31% in 24 hours. Its market cap and trading volume have also spiked by 11.46% and 18.39%, respectively, showing increased utility and activity with the token.
Path To Success
The gains are not surprising given that Polygon has been focused on developing its ecosystem. Tom Dunleavy, a senior research analyst at Messari, says the protocol is on the path to success.
The researcher outlined some of the achievements of Polygon recently – one being their zkEVM (zero-knowledge Ethereum Virtual Machine). The purpose of this solution is to position the network to achieve security, decentralization, and scalability.
Increased Number Of Addresses And Developers
Another notable achievement mentioned by Dunleavy is an increased number of addresses on the network – up 90% quarter over quarter – as well as an increase in developers from 200 in 2018 to more than 1,000.
. With these developments in motion, Polygon may be set for further growth in both price and adoption.
