Year-to-date, Polygon has risen by around 7,500 percent, making it one of the best-performing altcoins. At one point in late May, its gains would have netted investors around 12,500 percent in five months. MATIC fell with the rest of the crypto space on China’s crackdowns but is recovering as sentiment in the space improves.
Some coin-specific factors are also boosting MATIC. One is that the demand is accelerating. According to Crypto Briefing, around 67 whales have joined the Polygon network since Jul. 20. And on Aug. 17, Terra Virtua, an NFT (non-fungible token) platform, said it was moving from the Ethereum blockchain to the Polygon network to reduce energy consumption by nearly 99 percent.
